Bakso. It's some kind of meatball clear soup that has been long associated with Malang, and Bakso President is certainly the place to start your journey. Think of it as music. With the emergence of rap, jazz, blues, and so forth, Bakso President is the timeless classical music. They don't offer you fancy fillings such as grounded chili (grenade bakso, they call it), a cheddar cube (cheese bakso), cow brain (yes, cow brain bakso do exist), even bone marrow (which explode in your mouth when you bite it)... no! They stick with ground beef (bakso halus), chopped beef (bakso kasar), sinew (bakso urat), shrimp (bakso goreng), liver (bakso hati), deep friend innards, and tasty, one-of-a-kind clear broth that literally cover your tongue with heavenly delight! What is funny, the place is located next to railway, so expect the noise and vibration every one hour or so, but I call it an advantage! Where else would you eat in that oh-so-local atmosphere. Everyone knows the place. If you go by taxi, you'd probably have to pay them Rp 20.000. The place is very cheap. I'm a big eater (I finish a 750 grams of rare sirloin steak by myself) but the most amount I spend there was Rp 32.000. Try it!
