Bakso Monster @ Telawi, Bangsar

Rampaging into Bangsar this month, Bakso Monster offers behemoth-sized bowls of Indonesian-inspired meatball soup with noodles at non-terrifying prices. The easy-to-navigate menu is basically all about bakso - you can mix & match a choice of noodles (glass, yellow or hor fun) with your favourite broth (herb-laced consomme, sup tulang or tomyam), which comes with a huge, tender beef ball, for RM9.90 per portion. Flavours are agreeably mellow, with the possibility of firing up the taste buds with sambal mentah, sambal hijau or sambal tumis. Service is warm, boosting this as a defensible decision for decent dining.

  3. Lots of bakso here but I have not had any good ones. I would prefer minced meat meatballs, the texture...not so well-beaten that it becomes rubbery like fish balls or those frozen ones that I am not fond of. I'd love those sambals, I'm sure - bet they would make anything taste good!

    1. Suituapui: ooo, the bakso at this restaurant is not bad ... it's decently textured ... smooth but not overly artificial-tasting, and definitely not rubbery, heh :) and yep, i enjoyed all three of the sambals, even though they were spicier than i had expected, heh! :)
