CHINESE Street Food! Exploring CHINATOWN in Jakarta Indonesia Food Tour

  • Published on Aug 20, 2018
  • I LOVE Chinese food and wherever I go in the world it's fun to see how Chinese food is adapted in the local region. In this video, I went to Indonesia's LARGEST Chinatown in Jakarta and was blown away by the food!
    I first stopped for some yummy noodles at Bakmi Amoy and got some of the tastiest noodles paired with a giant fried meatball.
    Then it's on for some coffee and cut up pork!
    1. Pancoran Glodok (Chinatown)
    •Bakmi Amoy ( Noodles. Fried meatball )

    I watched a lot of your videos and understand that they are into foods from around the world. However, when it is Indonesia, I can't help but have to bring this up. I believe the Chinese from Indonesia are mainly from the province of Fujian. Hard-working and business-minded people but face tremendous discrimination. There are laws specifically set up to discriminate and prohibit the local Chinese population from doing just about everything. The defenseless Indonesian Chinese population periodically subjected to mob attacks. Police forces won't show up after a few days of looting, arsons, rapes, murders, and most likely with the approval from the Indonesian government. There was a picture, 1998, of a man holding the severed head of a local Chinese child but the Indonesian government didn't even try to locate that murderer.

    Based on what you enjoyed in Jakarta, if you happen to be back in Singapore again you might want to try “Kuay Chap” which is also a breakfast-sy kind of hawker food...mixed pork parts eaten with a broad rice noodle.
    My best food memory from Jakarta is fried chicken intestines! Lol.

    That soup on the red bowl is supposed to be the broth for the noodle. They put it separately so people can adjust on how watery they want the noodle to be. Like my preference, i dont like it with too much water so i just put a few spoons of broth just to moisturize it a little bit. And with the meatball or dumplings which usually the call as “pangsit” i usually put it on the remaining broth. Everyone can have their own style on eating this kind of noodle hahaha but that generally what i do and some people do

    Hey Mike, I love your videos so much! I live in Jakarta and I have loved street food everywhere else that I've been. I've heard some stories that although the streetfood here is delicious, it's not sanitary. Did you find these places were okay? You didn't get sick or anything?
