GOOD NEWS! East Java Cuisine is now available at Sate Khas Senayan! Perhaps some of you have not tasted all the typical food of East Java, and I was so. And this time, I came here to try and taste some of their menu, the legendary one is rujak cingur and nasi krawu. Are you so curious? Here's for you! :)
Rujak Cingur (IDR 44.000), assorted steamed vegetables, tofu and rice cake served with conger and peanut sauce. It could be called as a masterpiece of East Java. Anyway, cingur in Javanese means "mouth". Mouth here refers to a cow's mouth / muzzle cow. This is a typical Rujak Cingur, chewy and soft that comes from muzzle cow that has been boiled and then mixed into vegetables and peanut sauce.
Rujak Tahu (IDR 40.000), assorted steamed vegetables served with fried tofu omelette and peanut sauce. Its marinade is quite minimalist but it feels WOW with a blend of sweet, spicy, savory and fresh.
Nasi Krawu (IDR 53.000), a coconut rice served with assortment of shredded beef, egg, potato cake, teri pakang, serenading and choice of fried chicken wings, beef or fried baby fish. Anyway, this is a typical food of Gresik, East Java and it feels good and tasty especially if eaten while still warm.
Iga Penyet (IDR 86.000), fried beef ribs served with spicy sambal terasi. The fried beef ribs is squeezed against a mortar and usually served with lalab vegetables and steamed rice. It was first popular in East Java, Surabaya and now has spread across Indonesia. Anyway, the beef ribs hooked me well! Juicy and smooth :)
Ayam Penyet (IDR 71.000), fried chicken served with special sambal. Fried chicken that is smashed with the mortar to make it softer, served with sambal, slices of cucumbers, fresh vegetables, fried tofu and tempeh. In Indonesia, penyet dishes, such as fried chicken and ribs are commonly associated with Surabaya, the capital city of East Java.
Sayur Lodeh (IDR 40.000), vegetables in coconut milk. So delicious when eat vegetable dishes with coconut milk, which has a typical Indonesian savory taste. Spices and coconut milk sauce are so delicious and most fit well when also served with anchovies, tofu, tempeh and be more 'WOW' when paired with sambal terasi. HAHA!
Wedang Angsle (IDR 30.000), an assortment of green beans, peanuts, red pearl, green noodle jelly, bread and gomuti palm fruit in warm coconut milk. So warm and lovely!
