Bakmi Karet Asiu: Best Pork Noodle in Jakarta

 Bakmi Karet Asiu

Jakarta is a land to get fat. There are tons of noodle house in town that taste great and pretty affordable. Recently, I've heard the news about trending pork noodle in the city that belongs to Bakmi Karet Asiu. Without any doubt, I try to find it and here I am. Let's dig in! :)

Bakmi Karet Asiu established in 2013 when the F&B business not as popular as now. The competition is not that stiff, so the market responds nicely to this new noodle baby. The owner is a young blood who are passionate about cooking noodle and making their style charsiew. Fully supported by his mom, this business is an excellent example of successful family run business nowadays. There would be more than 70 bowls of noodle being sold daily, especially on PH they can sell more than 120 bowls of noodle consistently until sold out early. After a long talk with the owner, I do understand the secret recipe behind their success story is humble and honest. Both words are the best way to describe this noodle house as well.

Nestled in Kelapa Gading area exactly at Kelapa Kopyor Raya, Bakmi Karet Asiu own a small venue inside somebody's house. It comes with a very minimalist interior design like a traditional hawker food stall in Singapore. There is a small kitchen at the front while at the back, you might find noodle making process and cashier. Once you arrive here, what you need to do is to find your seat and wait until the staff ready to taking care your order.

 Bakmi Karet Special

 Bakmi Karet Special

You are not in Bakmi Karet Asiu without having Bakmi Karet Special (IDR 47,000 / S$ 5,30 / L). Featuring the perfectly chewy noodle with juicy slabs of charsiew, honey glazed pork, and crispy pork belly; coated with delicious soy sauce and mayu. Perhaps, the real winner of that bowl is just everything! I cannot resist that ultra tender meat with the glistening and crackling skin for sure. To enhance the flavor, just add one tablespoon of chili and soy sauce. Delicious.

 Bakmi Halus Babi Campur

Another trending menu of the time is Bakmi Halus Babi Campur (IDR 45,000 / S$ 5,10 / L). Set a differentiation in noodle type, the texture for each strand is no longer chewy but more likely as silky smooth. Removing that charsiew might be a wrong decision to make since the signature item in Bakmi Karet Asiu is there. However, it comes at a slightly lower price and same portion. Personally, I would choose the previous menu instead of this one.

Bihun Ayam Special

Bihun Ayam Special

Bihun Ayam Special (IDR 38,000 / S$ 4,40 / L) is also good for those who control the calories. Featuring the chicken vermicelli with fresh vegetables and lard. It is simple, delicious, and tasty. I take away this for my mom, and she loves this. She says this menu is one of the best noodles in town.

Bakso Goreng dan Pangsit Goreng

 Suikiaw

Still not enough? Just go with side dishes like Suikiaw (homemade Chinese dumpling stuffed with prawn and meat), Bakso Goreng (fried meatballs made of minced pork and shrimp), Fried Wonton (homemade Chinese dumpling with crispy skin and juicy filling).

For the beverage, I just prefer to have Iced Tea to remove the oily and fatty texture after feasting that meal. Also, I don't think they served any canned drinks as well because of the comfortable style of dining.

 Bakmi Asiu

If you are a noodle fanatic, Bakmi Karet Asiu is must try. The most delicious and complex pork noodle in Jakarta with juicy and tender slabs of charsiew. Nothing can beat this noodle experience! :)
