For the uninitiated, bakso is an Indonesian meatball that’s typically served with noodles and soup. One of its standout traits is how big each meatball can be—our local-style fish or sotong balls, for instance, are dwarfed by it. But even for a dish known for its size, the meatballs offered at Waroeng Bakso are particularly chunky.
Located in City Plaza, Waroeng Bakso only serves its XL beef balls on the weekends, but those two days of operation consistently attract snaking queues. It is said that many of the stall’s patrons hail from Indonesia, and that the flavours of Waroeng Bakso’s meatball soup remind them of home. This is surely evidence of the stall’s authentic Indonesian fare.

The simplest bowl of bakso you can get here is the Bakso Urat ($8), which comes with three thick beef balls. Each piece is said to be dense and packed with beefy flavour, and the aromatic and savoury soup only enhances each mouthful. For a spicier kick, opt for the Bakso Corona ($10) instead, which adds plenty of chilli to the soupy dish.

You’ll find even chunkier meatballs in the Bakso Bernak ($12). In fact, the ones in this set have smaller meatballs inside them, which means double the beefy goodness. It also comes with vermicelli noodles and crunchy fried dumplings, so you’re sure to have a hearty meal.
