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, taugehchar 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.

  1. Hi Tony, next time ypu go to Jakarta, try kwetiaw zie mei...a few stalls after akang...better...not as good as kwetiaw in Medan though


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
