MIE AYAM BASO LANGGENG
Cheap, good, and truly Indonesian. This kind of street food is one the most rooted traditional Indonesian food. You can find it almost anywhere on Indonesia streets, coffee shops, or even malls. Of course, my favourite remains to be those sold from road stalls
This is how the stall looks like, roadside cart with simple chairs and tables to sit on. This kind of queue and crowd is the usual view when coming to this place
MIE AYAM aka CHICKEN NOODLE – The noodle is too soggy for my taste. I prefer more QQ noodle texture. The chicken is pretty good with mainly sweet taste. The soup/broth is not tasty enough for me.
BAKSO aka BEEF BALL SOUP – For a roadside stall category and pricing, this is one of the best beef ball I ever had in Batam. Especially that huge one with tendon, very satisfying.
Feel free to request whether you want it wet or dry. In turn this will affect the noodle texture. I don’t like my noodle too soggy so I usually request it a bit dry.
