After lunch, we went to buy Cirebon’s specialties to bring back home. In Cirebon the most famous food store is Manisan Sinta, which sells everything from manisan buah, manisan sayur, keripik – keropok, Tjampolay syrup, etc. I was not really excited in this store, soon I felt bored and I started browsing outside the store for the kaki lima vendors. There were several interesting selections such as Es Duren (durian ice cream topped with Tjampolay syrup) and Tahu Gejrot (fried tofu topped with shallot & bird eye chilli slices and then poured (digejrot) with a spicy palm sugar juices). So we waited for others to do their shopping, while I sit in front of the store happily digging in on a portion of Tahu Gejrot, while SC bought es duren & Kembang Tahu and share it with me. πŸ™‚

    The sad thing about es duren in Cirebon is that all the sellers are using Monthong durians instead of local varieties πŸ™

  • jenz

    iya, tadinya gw juga mikir gitu Ven. taunya digejrot = diguyur itu dari si abang yang jualan langsung.

    Hmm, yang diulek itu bawang putih, bawang merah dan macam2 cabainya πŸ™‚ Tapi uleknya sengaja unfinished gak alus gitu.
    Paling suka dengan bawang putih banyak … lalu menebar aroma bawang kemana-mana, hihihi.
