Bakmi means noodles, whereas Abun is a person’s name (Chinese nick name). So this restaurant offers Abun’s noodles. This is my mom’s favourite noodles when she was young (around 30 years ago). She really loves their wonton / dumpling (suikiaw) (see the pictures underneath). Their first branch is at Gang Kelinci, Pasar Baru street market, Jakarta Pusat. Every time I go with my mom to Pasar Baru, we always eat chicken noodles either here, bakmi Gang Kelinci, or Bakmi Sui Sen (https://goodmorningjakarta.wordpress.com/2012/08/29/bakmi-sui-sen-sui-sen-noodles/).
The tastes of all their food are great and I love the texture of their noodles. Don’t forget also to order their nasi goreng (fried rice). Bakmi and nasi goreng are the must ordered food in this restaurant and when you come to Jakarta 😉
