Mie Kocok Bandung

Mie Kocok Bandung is one of the famous dishes from Bandung. Well, I'm not so sure why this noodle dish is named Mie Kocok Bandung, since it means "shake noodle from Bandung", is it because the noodle is being shake in the hot water before it's put into the bowl? Argh... I totally forgot to ask the vendor about it...


You can see the beef meatballs (bakso) on the top row then there are bean sprout in the black plastic, noodle and vermicelli.

Kikil (it's a part of the cow's foot that tasted rubbery)

The preparation to make Mie Kocok Bandung:
1. shake the noodle in the hot water.
2. put it into the bowl.
3. add chopped chinese celery, fried shallot, salt, white pepper, (usually the vendor will add also the MSG).
4. drizzle some sweet soy sauce.
5. add some kikil.
6. add a few of beef meatballs and also tofu with meatball.
7. pour the beef broth.

  24. Selby, are the beef balls actually white? They look more like fish balls than beef... CMIIW

    They look so delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  25. tuty: No... the beef balls were more "grey" than they looked in the pictures, I think it's because of the "lighting" effect, as you can see the beef balls in the 2nd pic where they were still on the rack :)
