Singkawang Has Noodles Skip, Subscribe to Officials!


Culinary tourism in Singkawang, a traveler must try noodles. For Muslims, the recommendation is Beef Meatballs & Chicken Noodles 68 aka Jump Noodles. Like what?

Beef Meatballs & Chicken Noodles 68 that’s the official name of the most famous meatball stall in Singkawang. But tourists also know him as Bakmi Loncat.

There is a special reason why the shop is called Bakmi Loncat. That’s because of the chef’s actions when cooking noodles. He threw the boiled noodles into the air. So the noodle was nicknamed the jumping noodle.

When covered by Hong Kong television, this noodle stall, which has been around since 1977, was even labeled as Bakmi Kungfu, thanks to the owner’s attraction to throwing his noodles into the air like a kung fu expert.

There is a funny story about the number 68 attached to the name of the meatball stall. According to the third generation owner of Bakso 68, the story began when a tax official came to the shop.

“At that time they were asked, what was the name of this shop? At that time there was no name. ‘Just a meatball stall, sir. No name’. Then the officer said, ‘Yes, what number is this shop on the street?’ ’68’ answered my grandfather. Yes, that’s the name,” said Silvia Liu, manager of Meatballs Beef 68 to detikTravel.

Before in the current place, this meatball used to be peddled around. But over time, the customers began to grow and finally they were able to open their own shop.

Regarding the menu, it’s clear that beef meatballs and chicken noodles are the champions here. There are also dumplings with gravy and tofu. The choices are complete and special meatballs. For special meatballs, all types of meat toppings will be given on the traveler’s order bowl.

We also ordered special meatball noodles. When our order came, literally all the cutlets were there. Until there is even boiled shrimp. For the broth, use beef stew, which has a savory taste.
