iSee Bandoengsche Melk Centrale (BMC)

Fresh yoghurt, milk and ice cream since 1928

The milk bar

Nostalgia meets hip in this coffee and milk bar. You can’t go wrong by ordering a refreshing glass of milk (Rp. 12.000) or plain yoghurt (Rp. 23.000). In the mood for something a little more adventurous? The yoghurt cocktail (Rp. 29.000- Rp. 32.000) is a great choice. Enjoy it with a cheeky Soes Diplomat (Rp. 6.000), an old Dutch delicacy from the small bakery, if you really want to indulge!

Nostalgia meets hip in Indonesia’s oldest working milk factory.

Dutch cows

The Bandoengsche Melk Centrale (BMC) is Indonesia’s oldest working milk factory. It was founded in 1928 by South African farmers who settled their dairy farms in the highlands of Lembang, just north of Bandung. The Dutch government lend a helping hand by sending over cows all the way from the northwest of the Netherlands.

Fun fact: the cows that produce BMC’s milk today are their descendants!
