🍜🇮🇩 Happy Independence day #Indonesia! @singasongjess and I are still talking about the #Bakso we had as afternoon snack at the Gili T.
This is a delicious bowl of Bakso in Gili Trawangan island in Lombok, Indonesia. Ask any Indonesian about Bakso and i'm sure you would be met with excitement. It's a small bowl of yellow noodles, meatballs and fresh beansprouts in clear beef broth, served with fried shallots, chili and kecap (sweet soy sauce). Bakso is traditionally sold on the street in a small push cart (called "gerobak" in Indonesian) that would go around the neighborhood during supper time and you have to catch the bakso guy at the right time. Because of its small portion, we normally eat it as snacks for supper or midday between meals. Nowadays you can also get them at restaurants for a meal-sized bowl. We got this off a push cart in Gili for $2 and proceeded to eat it on the side of the street. It may not be the healthiest or most hygienic thing, but two years later we are still dreaming about this Bakso
