Kwetiau Akang

2 weeks ago I had the opportunity to go back to Akang after 2 years. I know I could've gone there multiple times in a year,
but somehow I always get swerved by other treats

This time, I've committed myself to enjoy it once more

When I arrived it was already around 8 PM, however I believe this is actually the peak hour. I was glad I could get a seat for both of us! Akang is open only in the EVENING, around dinner time and they open until very late, so plan your culinary travel time accordingly. 

Conveniently located just at the right side of Jalan Muara Karang, with a visible blinking red sign in the night, this restaurant is already quite famous among foodies who like to try street foods. Despite being a street restaurant, it is very clean and well maintained. A plus point for me.

 As much as we would like to devour everything on the menu, we kept things realistic :D

We ordered 1 Kwetiau Siram (with pork) and 1 Kweatiau Goreng Isi (again, with pork), plus 2 portion of Wotie. 

The wotie, as an appetizer, left a very strong impression on us, mainly because it is not served like any other wotie you might find around Muara Karang or any other typical Chinese Food or Chinese Street Food around. The wotie was fried with a nicely done crispy texture on the outside and with a juicy bunch of meat on the inside.
We bought another portion to be taken home to be eater later on that night

Have to say, this is the best kwetiau I've ever eaten. I can't be bothered to use the proper English language for kwetiau because this is just too delicious.

The Kwetiau Siram is just as expected : tasty and having the right texture. The amount of soup poured onto the dish is just right and not overwhelming. 

The Kwetiau Goreng Isi is just as delicious. While I am more into Kwetiau Siram in general, when I tasted my girlfriend's dish it was awesome and really, really worth a try in the future
It is also said that the tomato noodle (Mie Tomat) is also one of the signature dish. I'm going to make sure I'll  get that one

The portion, as you can see, is not that huge. Those who have a large appetite might want to order two of everything served. 

All in all, with 2 kwetiau, 2 wotie, and 2 drinks, we paid Rp 130++ K. We can't say it's cheap, but for sure it's not too expensive either.
