I reviewed this probably over 1000 reviews or more ago, but I noticed on this one it says it’s got a new formula. So bihun is rice vermicelli. But baso sapi – what’s that? Wikipedia, if you please:
Bakso or baso is Indonesian meatball, or meat paste made from beef surimi. Its texture is similar to the Chinese beef ball, fish ball, or pork ball. The term bakso could refer to a single meatball or the whole bowl of meatballs soup.
Bakso can be found all across Indonesia; from the traveling cart street vendors to restaurants. Next to soto, satay and siomay, bakso is one of the popular street food in Indonesia. Today, various types of ready to cook bakso also available as frozen food commonly sold in supermarkets in Indonesia.
Beef meatball – sounds good. So let’s give this baso sapi flavored vermicelli a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, tofu puff, Salad Cosmo mung bean sproutsd and coriander. The vermicelli is awesome – I like how it has a kind of fluffy character to it it without being mushy. The broth has a very good flavor; a kind of garlic and onion taste with a nice underlying beef kind of hit. The oiliness is on point and the chilli powder gives a little touch of spice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8994357010046.
