Kulon Singapore: The Best Bakmi Experience on Bali Lane


Kulon Restaurant

So, there’s this cool place called Kulon right in the middle of Bali Lane introduced to me by my friend Andre, and guess what? It’s all about this awesome food from Java, Indonesia. It’s not just any food; it’s like the special dishes that the people who run it, a mother and son (Haris), grew up eating. They started with a place called IndoJava at the local Polytechnic for a while to see if people liked what they cooked, and guess what? People loved it!

Then, they thought, “Let’s make something even bigger,” and boom, Kulon was born on October 30th, 2020. It’s in a really neat spot in Singapore where there’s lots of history and other cool places to eat, but Kulon is all about Indonesian food, especially Bakmi, which are these super yummy dry noodles.

When we passed by, I got to try their house speciality Bakmi. It was like taking a bite of something new yet familiar. They told me they try to keep the old recipes alive but also add a little twist to make things exciting. And let me tell you, it’s really good! It’s like they know exactly how to mix the old with the new, so it tastes just right.

The ingredients throughout the dish were pulled together with the family love that’s behind the business, the silence at the table spoke volumes, I did not look up until this dish was wolfed down.

The Bakmi had this amazing flavour that made me think of places I’ve never been, like far-off islands and sunny, spicy kitchens. And the place, Kulon, feels welcoming, like you’re hanging out at a friend’s house who just happens to cook really amazing food.

People say Kulon is a spot where you can get a taste of Java in Singapore, and they’re not kidding. It’s like a mini-adventure on your lunch break or a dinner outing. Plus, the people there are super nice and they love talking about their food. It’s like visiting family who feed you really well.

Check out Teh Botol

Teh Botol

Andre ordered a Teh Botol which is a super cool drink from Indonesia that means “bottled tea” in English. It’s made by this big company called Sosro, and it tastes sweet and is usually drunk cold, which is awesome for hot days.

The name of the company, Sosro, comes from the Sosrodjojo family (but it was Souw Seng Kiam before), who started making this tea. They began their tea adventure in 1940 in a small place called Slawi, right in the middle of Central Java. Starting this tea was a big deal because it helped people all over the world get to know and love Indonesian tea, making Teh Botol a special part of how Indonesia says hello and shares something tasty with everyone.

Go Visit Kulon soon….You won’t regret it!

So, if you’re ever near Bali Lane, you’ve gotta to drop by Kulon, and give the Bakmi a try. It’s not just noodles; it’s like a whole experience wrapped up in Indonesian flavours. And who knows, maybe you’ll feel a bit like you’ve visited Java without even leaving Singapore!
