CHINESE Street Food! Exploring CHINATOWN in Jakarta Indonesia Food Tour

  • Published on Aug 20, 2018
  • I LOVE Chinese food and wherever I go in the world it's fun to see how Chinese food is adapted in the local region. In this video, I went to Indonesia's LARGEST Chinatown in Jakarta and was blown away by the food!
    I first stopped for some yummy noodles at Bakmi Amoy and got some of the tastiest noodles paired with a giant fried meatball.
    Then it's on for some coffee and cut up pork!
    1. Pancoran Glodok (Chinatown)
    •Bakmi Amoy ( Noodles. Fried meatball )
    •Kopi Es TakKie (iced coffee)
    Gang Gloria, Glodok, Jl. Pintu Besar Selatan III No.4-6, RT.7/RW.6, Pinangsia, Tamansari, Kota Jakarta Barat, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta 11120
    •Sekba (every imaginable part of pork soup)

    Based on what you enjoyed in Jakarta, if you happen to be back in Singapore again you might want to try “Kuay Chap” which is also a breakfast-sy kind of hawker food...mixed pork parts eaten with a broad rice noodle.
    My best food memory from Jakarta is fried chicken intestines! Lol.

    Thanks a lot for all the excellent efforts you contributes to the food world, it will be very interesting and appreciated if you can introduce more seasonal dishes for Chinese e.g. wholesome and hot dishes in Autumn and Winter, light and consome in summer etc.

    That soup on the red bowl is supposed to be the broth for the noodle. They put it separately so people can adjust on how watery they want the noodle to be. Like my preference, i dont like it with too much water so i just put a few spoons of broth just to moisturize it a little bit. And with the meatball or dumplings which usually the call as “pangsit” i usually put it on the remaining broth. Everyone can have their own style on eating this kind of noodle hahaha but that generally what i do and some people do

    Hey Mike, I love your videos so much! I live in Jakarta and I have loved street food everywhere else that I've been. I've heard some stories that although the streetfood here is delicious, it's not sanitary. Did you find these places were okay? You didn't get sick or anything?

    Hello from jakarta, i recently watching ur channel. And i like watching ur review for indonesian food, but after i see how you eat noodles in jakarta, i got it that you eat it the wrong way. The soup that give it to you with the noodles is a broth that supposed to pour it into all the noodles you ate. Because you dont do that u'll find it the noodle is to dry, thats why the soup/broth is needed. The reason the soup/broth is seperated with the noodles is because people who eat the noodles can adjust the amount of the soup/broth that pour into their noodles. Hope when you visit indonesia you can eat the noodles correctly, cos indonesian noodles is not dry 😊

    as my recommendation, you should try pork fried rice in Bandung (Nasi Goreng Ko Ahin)at Jl. DR. Rajiman. The fried rice is cooked in traditional way using charcoal.

    IMO, this is a wrong representation of Indonesian Nasi Goreng because it looks like a Chinese fried rice. Have you ever tried Nasi Goreng Kebon Sirih?

    You should come back to Jakarta and eat bakmie ayam krekot. It’s been around since the 70’s, my dad loves it so much he eats there practically every Friday. You ask for the noodles to be extra chewy and then just drench it with chicken soup. Best thing ever.

    Actually,you should mix your noodle with the broth bowl(you said "Soup"). That's how we eat that noodle. And you should try "chao pan" it's dumpling from pontianak with many filling which is delightful.

    You should have try mie kangkung in there!
    The shop is at the alley before Chandra, the alley that is marked with many DVD sellers
    I think it such unfortunate that you not try mie kangkung, its very delicious. I think if you try it you will find a new taste.
