Home Food ReviewsCuisineAsian Mie Akong, Jakarta

Travelling with a food lover often leads to interesting discoveries, especially when that person happens to drive in a foreign country. Adhi’s mum happens to be that food lover who took rif and I around when we were in Jakarta.


Mie Kolok

Like my mother in-law, she’s the kind that goes all out for the sake of good food, and Mie Akong was one of them. Located all the way in Muara Karang, it took us more than 2 hours in Jakarta traffic to get here. I’m very amazed at auntie’s patience with the traffic in Jakarta – she didn’t complain one bit about the chaos.


Mie Ayam


We tried several items at Mie Akong, like the Mie Hongkong, Mie Ayam, CiCong Fan and Kwetiau Goreng. They tasted best with acar bawang, especially the Kwetiau Goreng. CiCong Fan (chee cheong fan) is usually eaten plain in Jakarta and Mie Akong’s version comprised silky rice sheets, seasoned with sesame oil and topped with fried shallots.

I also tried their version of tapai (it’s called Tapeh in Jakarta) and found it quite good. I’m generally not a fan of tapai but this was quite easy to enjoy as it wasn’t overly pungent from the fermentation.



Service was pretty decent and if you’re not sure of what to order, ask the staff and they will be happy to recommend a few items.
