If you wanna eat kwetiaw with the real Chinese taste, you have to come to Kwetiaw Akang. Located on the Arteri Pondok Indah, this place is so easy to find. Simple place for 30-40 visitor.
Kwetiaw Akang is culinary dishes from Medan. They cooked kwetiaw using charcoal. The heat from the coals of charcoal is more sustain than cooked with the gas stove. They said it will give different scents to the dishes.
Today I order Kwetiaw Goreng Special (special fried kwetiaw). Price 38 K. Kwetiaw texture is chewy and dry. We spoiled with many varieties topping such as: fried egg, shrimp, fish ball, hepia/kekian (shrimp cake), slices of beef meat, bean sprout & caisim (green mustard). What makes this dish called special is they sprinkled it with Crab Meat. The taste is so delicious! You will get addicted by this dish! This is so damn good!
I also try their Kwetiaw Tomat Special (special tomato kwetiaw). Price 38.5 K. It has the same ingredients with the fried one. The tomato soup is very tasty & refreshing. The seasoning is screaming out from that dish. So yummy!
Beside kwetiaw, they also served noodle, vermicelli and rice. For another option, you can also order Kwetiaw Siram. They pour out the kwetiaw with gravy sauce. For appetizer, they give us Otak Otak (it made from fish). Price 5 K. They also provide Kuotie (fried dumpling). For beverage you can choose liang teh (sweet herbal tea,Price 8 K), es markisa (passion fruit ice), barley ice, jus terong belanda (dutch eggplant juice), es jeruk kietna (kietna orange ice) & teh tarik (mix between milk & tea).
