WARUNG BAKMI SHIBITSU, MAKE YOU SPEECHLESS – Price: IDR 16,000/portion

If you are one of the big fans of noodles, while you are in Yogyakarta, try to stop by visiting the Shibitshu noodle stalls located in Jalan Bantul No. 106. This place is about five minutes from Malioboro. Although the name seems Japanese, this place is actually owned by Javanese and already opened since 25 years ago.

Besides the crowd, at first I was quite confused with what will I find in Shibitsu Noodles Stall or people call it Warung Bakmi Shibitsu. This place is famous with the name of ‘Shibitsu or silent noodles’. I had some thoughts related to the name. Firstly, the noodles are so tasty that when we try it, we’re going to be silent and can’t speak. Secondly, it can be that the seller is quiet or mute. I was mistaken for the second thought because when ordering one plate of fried noodles to a middle-aged woman who was preparing the seasoning, it turned out that she can talk. But, in the end, I found out one of my guess was right, here’s the complete story.

Not enough just tasting fried noodles, I also ordered the warm sweet tea as a nice complement. While waiting for the order, I slowly began to understand one of the reasons why this place is famous with the name of silent noodles. It turns out that the woman waitress has speech impaired (mute). There is also one more person who helps there as far as I can see is also muted or can’t talk.

It took quite much time until I could enjoy the order. Understandable, because this stall only uses a charcoal-burning brazier for cooking. While waiting for the noodles, sweet warm tea comes first. Quite different from the other places that serve tea just with the use of glasses, here is also given additional small teapot if we need more water. Besides the presentation, this tea is also different in terms of the taste. The first sip of the tea left some kind of unique sensation. Javanese call it wasgitel (or it can be translated as fragrant, fresh, sweet, and strong). Blackish brown tea color indicates the fresh strong flavor on the tip of the tongue. Then comes with elegant sweet taste from sugar cubes that are dipped in tea.

After nearly 20 minutes of waiting, finally my fried noodle was served by the silent woman. This presentation of the fried noodle looks almost the same as the noodle in other places; it just has a little lighter color probably because not using too much soy sauce. The noodle is made from two types of noodles, namely yellow and vermicelli noodles. Then completed with small pieces of chicken and celery on top. On the table, there are also hot cayenne peppers those of for you who enjoy spicy taste. The first time tasting one spoon of this silent noodle made me almost speechless. The noodle seasoning feels so strong and delicately absorbed in the noodles. At a glance, the noodles somewhat feel like having excessive condiments, but it was all gone when I have other spoons of the noodles. It’s so yummy.

The unforgettable thing from eating at these silent noodles is the combination of the noodles and tea. They complement each other to make the memorable culinary experience. Been a long time since I didn’t feel enjoyment like this. In the end, I was quite happy because my guesses at the beginning of the writing are right. Shibitshu noodle makes me speechless and mute for a moment because of the delight.
