Bakmi Keriting Siantar 19

Finally…my blog is now up and running again. After battling with Bluehost for few weeks, my site is now live again. Bluehost mistakenly suspected my site as spammer sites, so they shut my site down 🙁

The problem is now solved. It’s time to get back to write for my blog post again.

I now want to share with you this great place to eat noodle in Jakarta. Have I ever told you that I’m a noodle lover? If not, I think this is the time you should know that bakmi (noodle) is probably my favorite food of all time!

Bakmi Aloi Cabang Greenville

In one fine morning, I suddenly wanted to bike. I haven’t been using my Dahon folding bike for almost 1 month, I think. If you asked me why, the answer is because I’m being lazy. Yup…I admitted it. True that I’m busy with work and stuff, but where there’s a will, there will be a way. Right? At least, that’s what the wise man would say 🙂

Anyway….I finally went biking from my house to Belleza area, near Permata Hijau. Belleza is where I work daily. I have always wanted to try to bike to work, so this is the time I make it into reality, even though today I’m not officially working.

It took me 30 min to get there + a lot of heart quenching & gasping for air. I soon realized how out of shape I am. But…I reached my destination!

All along while I was biking, I only have 1 thing on my mind… “What will I eat after this?” LOL Since this morning, I have been wanting to try out Bakmi Aloi Cabang Greenville. I have heard about that noodle place (since it’s right next to Bakmi Alok, one of the famous noodle place in Greenville also), but I have never tried it.

So I made up my mind. After going back from Bellezza, I went straight to Bakmi Aloi Cabang Greenville.

It is the 1st time for me here at Bakmi Aloi Cabang Greenville. Below are some pictures of the place.

Taste-wise, I don’t think it’s that special. The differences are the fact that it’s using sweet soy sauce (not 100% sure, but it looks like it), like a Yamin Noodle, and it’s using different types of meat/drrssings: chicken, chopped pork, chasiu, and mushroom.

At first, I was kinda disappointed due to the fact that it doesn’t use any vegetables (only bean sprout) – and if you know me, I’m a huge fan of veggies. But luckily, I found some caisim in my bowl of suikiauw (shrimp dumpling)

And if you are that particular about their sambal, you can see below the type of sambal that they are using.

They have chili paste and pickled chili with onion. They are a pretty good combination with the noodle actually.

Overall, I give Bakmi Aloi Cabang Greenville a score of 6 out of 10. It is a unique noodle with variety of meat/dressings on top, but the fact that it’s using sweet soy sauce (kecap) is something that I’m not typically fond of.

Alas…all of those 1.5 portion of noodle is almost gone 🙂

Mie Keriting Awai

Mie Keriting Awai
Jalan Raya Pluit Sakti No.45
Jakarta Utara,14450

Review:
Bakmie Awai adalah bakmie yang boleh dibilang paling enak dari seluruh bakmie keriting babi yang pernah saya coba. Tekstur bakmie-nya pun sangat pas, tidak terlalu keras ataupun terlalu lembek. Dipadu dengan potongan panggang babi, daging potong, dan sayur-sayuran (caisim dan toge), bakmie keriting Awai adalah salah satu favorit saya ketika saya makan kedaerah Pluit.

Apakah anda ada rekomendasi tempat bakmie yang enak lagi untuk daerah Pluit dan sekitarnya? Jika ada, silahkan bantu saya dan teman-teman lain yang membaca blog ini untuk mengetahui tempat bakmie favorite anda.

Satu hal yang unik juga ketika saya makan di daerah Pluit, yaitu bahwa ada banyak tempat-tempat makan enak disekitar anda, jadi jangan kaget kalau amda melihat ada kwetiau di foto-foto saya dibawah ini. Saya memesan kwetiai tersebut dari restaurant persis di sebelah bakmie keriting Awai.

Yang saya menyesal adalah saya tidak menanyakan harga per mangkuknya berapa, karena kebetulan ada orang lain yang bayarin untuk kita semua. Yang pasti, kami memesan 1 porsi pangsit, 1 porsi besar bakmi keriting, 1 porsi kecil bakmie keriting, 2 es teh tawar, dan 1 teh tawar hangat. Total pembayaran adalah sebesar Rp. 80,000.

Berikut ini adalah beberapa foto yang saya ambil ketika saya makan disana.
