Bakso



Bakso (Indonesian meatball noodle soup) is a popular food here. There are several varieties of bakso. The most popular of them are bakso Bandung, bakso Solo, and bakso Malang. They are named according their places of origin. Bakso Malang is from the city of Malang in East Java. Bakso Solo is from the city of Solo or Surakarta in Central Java. Pictured here is Bakso Malang. As you can see, it consists of noodles, beancurds (tofu), 'siomay'(steamed meat dumpling), and 'pangsit' (crispy wonton). Indonesian bakso can also now be found in Malaysia. It was introduced into the country by Javanese people who migrated there.
