Back again to Yogya’s review. After having a taste of Pak Nardi’s Rujak Ice Cream, we went back to Beringharjo market and Mirota for another shopping session. After that, we went to Bakmi Kadin for an early dinner. Bakmi Kadin is a legendary spot in Yogya for Javanese noodles and the restaurant is said to be among one of the first places to sell Javanese noodles way back in 1947. When we arrived, it was quite empty. There are several cooking stations with old-style charcoal stoves. We ordered bakmi goreng telor 17K & bakmi kuah 17K to share. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of Javanese dishes, especially as it can sometimes be too sweet. Thankfully, the fried noodle version of Bakmi Kadin was quite acceptable for my palate. It was mild, well-seasoned, not too sweet, and I was happily squishing chilies into my noodle to add a spicy kick. Overall it was an enjoyable dish, but I don’t think it was a really special dish that would make us want to return.
