March 12th, 2017. Once upon a time, there’s a young man. He was born in a family with noodle business. He really loves noodle. He wanted to build a place where everybody can find a lot of authentic Indonesian noodles. Well, he did it! Finally. Umaramu.
“Uma” word comes from traditional custom home from Sumba. Ramu means blending spices. So it means home for blending spices. The owner wanted to show honor to the culinary Indonesia, the wealth of spices are blended in such a way it creates unity flavor, aroma and color. When I stepped inside Umaramu, it’s not a spacious area, but very comfortable. I felt like at home. They have small smoking area on the back side of the place.

It’s really a unique presentation. They stacked the fried dumplings and put the garnish in the middle. Love it. It’s crunchy and crispy and delicious. You can eat it while waiting for the main course. It’s good for a starter and also for side dish.
Mie Asin 30k
Mie Manis 30k
Didn’t really like the sweet noodle. Maybe I should try the salty one. Too bad, I forgot to try it at the time. Well the texture of the noodle I think almost the same. We took photos too long, I guess. It’s already cold and dry. Next time, eat it while still warm.
Mie Cakalang Dabu-Dabu 35k
Mie Kangkung Betawi 35k
Love it! The broth of the noodle was delighful. Really addicting. I couldn’t stop slurrrrping the broth. The meat was also delicious and tender. Sweet and savoury at the same time. Hmmm..
Bihun Bakwan Malang 40k
It’s for sharing, so I didn’t put the bakwan into the bihun. Next time I come, I will put it into the bihun and let’s see how it works. LOL. Well, it was delicious, but I prefer to mix it together.
Mie Udang Telor Asin 38k
Not really my favourite. The noodle was dry, maybe because we’re taking photos too long. The shrimp was also dry. That’s why sometimes the chef wanted us not to take photos too long. “Eat the noodle now! Eat the meat now! Don’t take photos anymore!” Hahahahaha well, that’s their job, of course. But for us, we cannot stop taking photos until we get the most perfect one. 🙂
Mie Titi 42k
It’s a popular noodle from Makasar cuisine. A type of dried noodle served with capcay. Similar to I Fu Mie, only the noodle is thinner.
The recipe was devised by a Chinese descent, Ang Kho Tjao. He opened his noodle shop to sell his dried noodle and it gaining popularity in Makassar since early 1970s. Ang Kho Tjao passed his knowledge of the recipe to his three children namely Hengky, Awa’, and Titi. After Ang Kho Tjao died, dried noodle shop business was continued by his three children who separately opened their own shop. Titi’s are the most popular in Makassar, hence the name of “Mie Titi” become synonymous with Makassar dried noodle.

Nasi Rawon Sapi 38k
This was mine. And I loveeeeeee it! Rawon is one of my favourite dishes. It’s hard to find delicious rawon, trust me. Every place claimed that they had the most delicious rawon, but when I tried, it’s not my type. At Umaramu, they made delicious rawon recipe. The beef was also juicy and tender. MY FAVOURITE RAWON!
Nasi Telor Tahu 34k
Another favourite of mine. I think I ate this one a lot hahaha. Combination of tahu telor dish with rice. Love the peanut sauce. The telor tahu was big portion. I was overwhelming. Actually I plan to order this by delivery online. I think my hubby will love it.
Thank you Umaramu. Definitely a keeper! I will be back to try another dishes!
