What’s crossing your mind when somebody mentions the word “noodles”? If you are a lover of noodles, today is your special day! Wink, wink… Why? It’s because I dedicate today’s article for you the noodles lovers! I am a lover of noodles and I happily suggest you try the famous Mie Ayam in Jogja.

Have you ever been to Jogja? If you’ve been here, you probably notice that there are many restaurants, stalls, and event food carts sell Mie Ayam.  There are various ways to cook and serve Mie Ayam and what I’d like to share today is Mie Ayam & Bakso Pak Aris. 

Located in Tambakan Sinduharjo Ngaglik Sleman near MIN 2 Sleman, Mie Ayam & Bakso Pak Aris is a stall that only sells five dishes namely Bakso,  Mie Ayam, Mie Ayam Bakso (Chicken Noodles Soup with Meatballs), Mie Ayam Bakso Goreng (Chicken Noodles Soup with Fried Meatballs), and Mie Ayam Ceker (Chicken Noodles Soup with Chicken Feet). What I had there was Mie Ayam Bakso. This Chicken Noodles Soup I had was served in a Javanese way. I said it that way because many dishes in Jogja are often served sweet. I went to this place in the month of Ramadhan, thus a part of the stall was closed with a blue cloth though the stall was open.

Welcome to Mie Ayam & Bakso Pak Aris!

 What’s in a bowl of Mie Ayam Bakso? As you can see in the photo below, Mie Ayam Bakso contains noodles, slices of mustard greens, sweet chicken, scallions, and two meatballs. To enrich the taste of this dish, Pak Aris also adds cucumber pickles in the bowl. Most Mie Ayam dishes are not served with cucumber pickles so each time I found one with this I always got excited because I like cucumber pickles!! Apart from that, Pak Aris also served the noodles soup with side dishes; Pangsit Goreng (Fried Dumpling).

Many people like to mix their chicken noodle soup with some ketchup. No wonder, many sellers of this dish prepare themselves with tomato ketchup, chili ketchup, and soy sweet ketchup so that their buyers can have their very own way of chicken noodle soup’s taste. Apart from the kinds of ketchup, people also like to add sambal or white peppers. 

How does your Mie Ayam Bakso taste, Eunike? Well, I had this dish only with sambal to maintain its original taste. In my point of view, the chicken noodles soup I had was rich in sweetness and savory wrapped in mild spiciness. Loved it! I liked it more when this mouthwatering experience was mixed with the acidic taste of cucumber pickles. So flavorful! Bakso and Pangsit Goreng I ate were okay too but I liked my Mie Ayam the most!

Mie Ayam & Bakso Pak Aris has four choices of beverage. You can have tea, orange, milk, or dawet ayu. I heard the last one mentioned was tasty but I haven’t tried it yet. Hopefully next time I can get a chance!

If you would like to explore street foods and explore Mie Ayam in Jogja, make sure you put Mie Ayam & Bakso Pak Aris on your list. The price is so affordable and they only accept cash. Mie Ayam Bakso that I had was IDR 11,000 and the hot orange drink I picked was IDR 3,000. Nice price, isn’t it?
