Definition of Mee Bakso: In Indonesia, meatballs are called 'bakso' . It's usually served in a bowl, with savoury soup, glass noodles, beancurd (tofu), eggs, wonton dumplings.
Favorite Dish: When I was in Java, I saw many roving vendors (Kaki Lima) selling this ubiquitous meatball noodle soup - from little lanes to busy streets to the palace precinct. I suppose this is a national comfort food of sorts since it's available everywhere. Well, I had mine outside the royal palace. How could I resist? A big, delicious bowl of steaming hot noodles topped with succulent beef bowls and crunchy wantons came at only USD0.50 or less. But that didn't satiate me. I ate it again in many other places and concluded the best..
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: There's lots of kaki limas selling this familiar favourite. I found this just outside the kraton.
Price: less than US$10
