Halal Indonesian food in Singapore isn't hard to find, but you've never had Bakmi the way Kulon serves it up before. ? This halal Kampong Glam eatery opened at Bali Lane in October 2020, and brings you authentic Bakmi just like what you might get in Java. The owner formerly ran the Indonesian hawker stall 'IndoJava' and has brought the same casual, laidback atmosphere to Kulon.
Authentic Javanese Bakmi is hard to find in Singapore, but Kulon manages to dish it out - with over 10 types of noodle bowls to choose from! Though the bowls may look simple the noodles are chewy and springy, soaking up the flavour of the toppings and keeping you going back for more.
Make sure to try their signature dry noodles, including flavours like Bakmi Sambal Merah ($9.20), Bakmi Kaldu ($7.80), and Bakmi Crispy ($8.80) that comes with Javanese marinated fried chicken thigh! Or add on sides including Bakso Goreng ($3.80), and Kulit Pangsit Goreng ($2) to take your meal to the next level. ?
If you've worked up an appetite before visiting, treat yourself to something hearty with the Bakmi Komplit ($13.80). It's topped with bakso beef balls, telur kecap and, fried kulit pangsit for the ultimate mid-day energizer. ? The menu even includes rice dishes like Nasi Ayam Geprek ($9.20) that's topped with spicy fried chicken and sambal. Check out the menu here so you can start planning your meal ahead of time!
The eatery is pretty small, but if you don't get a seat you can always takeaway your bowl to enjoy somewhere else. Since it's dry noodles, you don't have to worry about your meal getting soggy either. ?
