Bakmie Anwar is an old establishment that never faded away. Established in 1993, this classic brand is founded by Mr. Anwar (Pak Anwar) and his wife during the early stage of his daughter's school life. Every day, this senior couple can make hundreds of pangsit rebus (steam wonton) and bakso sapi (beef meatball) to delight every customer out there. Since everything made fresh daily, each bowl of bakmie pangsit (wonton noodle) taste really consistent here. Plus point, it still cost you below Rp. 15,000 / S$ 1,50.
Nestled in Bunda Hati Kudus School exactly beside school canteen, this venue owned a very small dining area instead of any other restaurant within the region. The whole interior is just the same like 24 years ago when my parents having a small chit-chat with their friends over the bowl of noodle. As you can see, this venue is not even fancy, nor classic, but it is more rustic. Somehow, by looking at the broken wall right beside the kitchen, good childhood memories suddenly popping in my mind and make me smile a little more.
Draws its line for Bakmie Lebar Pangsit Bakso (Rp. 12,000), none of you would visit this place without giving a try for this menu. Featuring the nicely cooked noodle with handmade wonton and chewy meatballs. It's rich, well seasoned, and flavorful. Whenever you stir it, all of the good aromas is there to catch you mouthwatering all the time. In fact, the additional fried shallots and green onion on top add a bit of freshness and crunchiness to your palate as well. But still, the best part of this menu might be the silky and lightly gummy noodle texture like never.
Lighter than before, this Bakmie Halus Pangsit Rebus (Rp. 12,000) is my mom's favorite menu. All of the components remain the same unless that noodle texture is far more thin and less chewy. I love the way they cooked this noodle which is partially cooked while the other half remains raw. Covered in rich soy sauce, salty chicken broth, and vegetable oil, this menu is just entertaining as it looks.
Still not enough? They also sell a bowl of Bakso Sapi (Rp. 10,000 / 8 pieces) and Pangsit Rebus (Rp. 10,000 / 10 pieces) as a perfect side dishes. Just order it while the stock lasts.
For the beverage, they will serve you Teh Hangat or known as Hot Tea for free. In case you are looking for another option, they also have a bottle of Iced Water or Warm Water as well. Do ask the humble owner right in the kitchen.
Bakmie Anwar is a perfect destination for heartwarming noodle dishes in Jakarta. All menus made fresh upon order, especially that pangsit rebus and bakso sapi who are come in very pleasant flavor and texture. One time visit might never enough for this.
