Bakso Akiaw 99 Mangga Besar

I just had an early dinner at Super Suikiaw in Mangga Besar area when my friend mentioned a famous place for meatballs (bakso), which located across from the Super Suikiaw.

I got curious and wanted to try it so I went there directly although I was still feeling full.

The place was totally packed! No Air-conditioner!
It was hard to find an empty table so we had to share our table and seat together with other people.

We ordered the meatballs, sliced beef with rice vermicelli - Rp. 42.000

The beef meatballs were springy and pretty tasty but the sliced beef was so sweet. 
The beef broth was good, not too salty nor too oily.

Love the coriander leaves and fried shallot but not that hard and dry rice vermicelli.
Current currency:
1 USD = Rp. 13.475
