Indonesia Best Food at Kwetiau Akang in Jakarta
We have our char kway teow and Indonesia has kwetiau :D One of the most popular in Jakarta is Kwetiau Akang.
Like our CKT, it has wok hei, lup cheong (Cantonese pork sausage), lard crackles, shrimps, taugeh, char siew, chye sim but wait, there is more.
Akang's kwetiau is fried with savoury crab broth with half a dozen shelled crab claws tossed into the noodles before serving. The crab broth and claws really give Akang's kwetiau a savoury edge that only crabs could.
Char kway teow fanatics - leaving Jakarta without trying Kwetiau Akang is a big mistake :D Read More.
