Several weeks ago I went to Malang for an unplanned weekend trip. I contacted several friends from Malang for culinary recommendation. Most of them recommended bakso / meatball. Seems like there are a lot of “Bakso Malang” restaurants across Indonesia for a reason.
I was torn between Bakso President and Bakso Kota Cak Man. Finally I decided to try Bakso Kota Cak Man. They serve various kinds of bakso and other toppings like siomay, tahu, and so on. The food is delicious and the price is quite affordable.
For dinner, I tried bakso bakar Pak Man. I read a lot of positive reviews in Google. The place is small and quite crowded when I arrived at the restaurant. They sell bakso kuah and bakso bakar. If we buy bakso kuah, we can pick the noodles by ourselves. I bought one portion of bakso bakar. The price is Rp. 3.000 for each bakso. The bakso bakar has mild sweet taste from the ketchup. It tastes good and I have never met bakso bakar outside Malang. If you are curious, be sure to visit this restaurant.
