"Food is our common ground, a universal experiences" - James Beard
Bakso Novi started as street hawker years ago. All the way from Medan, Indonesia to Penang Island, Malaysia, we dedicate ourselves to serve the best version of Bakso available to the market.
Inspired by Penang Island's street food scene, we noticed most cuisines available on streets are mostly limited to local cuisines only. Tempted by the desire to once again taste our hometown Bakso, and challenged by the difficulties to locate anyone that sells traditional indonesian bakso, we have decided to launch our own Bakso Stall.
Our version of Bakso Soup are served with soft and tender beef slices, juicy beef fats, average size beef ball, and also Indonesian Bakso (Huge Beef Ball).
On the sides, we also provide a tri-combination(Black,Green & Red sauce) of chilli sauce to spice up your Bakso dining experience. The tri-combination of chilli sauce helps to enhance acidity, sweetness and also a citrusy flavour while enjoying our different variation of Bakso. Our passion is to introduce Delicious Traditional Indonesian Bakso to Malaysians, and also the world!
