This is one of the famous Indonesian restaurant in Jakarta. The former name was Bakmi Gajah Mada; however, since a decade ago the name was changed into Bakmi GM due to the government’s policy. The government forbid this name because Gajah Mada is one of the respected figures in Indonesian history.
This restaurant started from a small stall and Chicken Noodles are their speciality. Year by year they started to open a restaurant which is located in Gajah Mada Street, that’s why I assumed from where their name came from.
Now, they open several branches just around Jakarta. Their menu is still simple and they don’t have many choices; however, almost all the foods are yummy. I recommended the fried rice (nasi goreng), chicken noodle (bakmi ayam), and fried dumpling (pangsit goreng). Lastly you should order it with the well-known unique Indonesian soft drink, which is Teh Botol Sosro (sweet jasmine tea) ;p~
This is one of the Indonesian restaurant that has a good branding; unfortunately, they haven’t franchised their restaurant yet.
Enjoy !!! \^_^/
