Bakmi Naga Ny. Liong

It has been almost ten years since the last time I visited Sunter Mall. The mall is even smaller than the one and only mall in Pontianak. When I walked on the third floor of the Sunter Mall, I was intrigued to try Bakmi Naga Ny. Liong, which is the non-franchise version of Bakmi Naga. Although the restaurant is titled as Bakmi Naga, which literally means “Dragon Noodle”, but it offers many varieties of food other than noodle, which includes rice, congee, and stir fry meat and vegetables. I think Bakmi Naga belongs to Chinese restaurant category.  Since the restaurant is certified Halal, it captures large proportions of Muslim customers. When I had dinner there, many customers ordered fried rice for main course and Es Teler (Indonesian shaved ice) for drink. Some dined there with families, some dined alone after work like me. 20141113_181107

I ordered Nasi Tim (Steamed Chicken and Mushroom Rice). I like how they put big sized  mushrooms on top of the rice. The soup looks like water, but it is very rich in flavour. It has nice overall taste, but the rice is not soft enough. 20141113_181944 20141113_182041

I really like the interior with red brick wall on one side and vintage frames on the other side, with an old picture of Nyonya Liong in the middle. It gives customers deep nostalgic feelings. 20141113_181658 20141113_181136 20141113_181628

I love the wooden chairs, which clearly differentiate the franchised Bakmi Naga from the non-franchised Bakmi Naga Ny. Liong.

Both versions of Bakmi Naga use a gold or ceramic bucket to carry cutleries to customers’ table before meal is served. I wonder if any customer ever steal this bucket, because it is kind of unique. 20141113_18193120141113_183241
