The second menu item I ordered: Bakso Urat Iga Gibah Gulung. Se pedes gibahan tetangga. Basically it's a chilli-infused meatball wrapped rib of beef served on bed of veggies and a pinch of noodles. Kudos to the team of @baksopaksarjuk.surabaya for the name.
I have told you guys how I love the meatballs here. This dish just elevates it to another level. Chunky chilli-hot tendon meatball? Good. Beef ribs? Good. Both of them in one go? Divine. Enuf said. I don't even need to add any sauce to season the dish. And the Flinstones-like feeling when you try to have a bite of it while holding the bone? Will definitely make you smile while reminiscing your childhood.
Oh, pricing wise. Have a look on the last slide and decide by yourself if the menus are overpriced, underpriced, or just right.
A short stroll to the other part of the city enabled me to finally try this hyped up (currently) Bakso Solo place. Bakso is a form of meatballs loved by locals here, compared to your classic meatballs that consists of minced meat and breadcrumbs, our version (Indonesian version woohoo 🇮🇩) consists mainly of minced meat, chunks of tendons (for Bakso Urat like shown on these slides), and a bit of binding agents (usually tapioca starch).
I ordered 2 of their popular items, this one is Mi Ayam Bakso Urat Besar. Basically it's chicken noodle soup/ramen with jumbo balls on top (hmmm... 🤔)
Noodle is springy, broth tastes light and savoury, pickles add a bit of freshness, stir-fried soy chicken elevates the dish by giving it the sweetness it needed and blanched greens gave it an extra crunch apart from those fried crackers thingy.
For the balls (hmmm... 🤔), have a look by yourself how pretty it looks and believe me, it tastes awesome (for you who love chewy chunky textures like me).
I finished the bowl, and before wondering why the empty bowl looks blurry, yeah i made it that way. To remind us that memories can be blurry but it lasts for a lifetime 😚
Worth my effort to surf on the traffic and sunny + hot weather of Surabaya.
PS: friendly staff here and the admin of @baksopaksarjuk.surabaya immediately reposted my igstory the second i put it online 😂 sukses terus ya mas2 ibu2 baksonya laku diserbu netijen
