Legendary Noodle Joints In Tebet

When discussing about food in Tebet, a friend who resided in the area during her childhood commented that most, if not all, newly established eateries in Tebet have the standard taste. She thought that it was because the market in Tebet mostly are students, which have low budget, resulting in low quality food. However, she added, there are old eateries that maintain good quality, such as the following noodle joints.

Bakmi Berdikari
Location: Jl. Tebet Timur Dalam Raya No. 41

Established since 1978, this place is the most expensive of all noodle eateries mentioned in this post. I had to mention about the price in the beginning, because it's what struck me in the first place upon opening the menu book.

This place has social media accounts in FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram. It even has a website at, which features photos of the dishes and the prices.

I went here when I was feeling a bit of cold. So I ordered Mie Tom Yum (Rp 50.000). It came with udon as the noodle. Oh no, I'm not a fan of udon. The tom yum soup was good, though. Will probably try another dish from this restaurant, after the pay day, that is...

Location: Jl. Tebet Timur Dalam 2 No. 51B

My friend said this place has been around for around 20 years as she remembered visiting this place with her childhood friends. She said that her father used to always order the same dish: bakmi pangsit kuah (noodle with wonton soup). I decided to try a different dish when I came to this place.

Mie ayam bakso jamur (chicken noodle with meatballs and mushroom) and a glass of coconut water. It's all homemade, because the shape of the noodle, the taste of meatball and fried wonton are one of the kind.

The man behind the glass cupboard is the cook. He is quite talkative and friendly.

Its owner, Pak Yunus, started selling noodle in 1984. Singers Yuni Shara and Kris Dayanti were said to be frequent customers in the 1990s.
