Kwetiau Akang (Akang's Rice Noodles)

A couple of months ago, the Little Hungry Heart was in town. And yes, we finally had a chance to meet up :)   After a long nice day, lunch with a non-stop 5 hours of interesting and fun conversation at a Manadonese restaurant in the Central of Jakarta, then continued for another almost 3 hours conversation in a coffee shop; we decided to have our late dinner at Kwetiau Akang in the North of Jakarta. A quite famous place for fried rice noodles and has 4 branches around Jakarta.

Badak - Rp. 8.000
An old school sarsparilla root beer soft-drink.
It tasted sweeter than A&W root beer and less soda.

Kuo Tie (5 pcs.) - Rp. 20.000
Delicious fried dumplings. 

Kwetiau Goreng Kepiting - Rp. 29.500
Fried Crab Rice Noodles.
The portion was hearty. Unlike most common fried kwetiau, this kwetiau was not too oily.

  1. How nice it is to meet fellow foodie from another country. It appears that those 8 hours of convo is still not enough. =D

  2. Kwetiaw Akang! Yes, I've been here too, but it was take away, so couldn't write the review. Glad you feature this famous street food =)

  3. ruby: Sometimes it can be unbelievable how time flies so fast when you are having a great conversation with someone for hours without realizing it :)

    ellyna: Ah.. don't worry.. you actually still can write a review of it although it's just a take away ;)
