Several months ago, on our way home, we stopped by a place located at Jl. Panjang called “Kafe Star” for dinner. The place look quite spartan but clean compared to the cafe2 tempat nongkrong we always found in the mall. They served a various selection of Javanese cuisine such as : rawon dengkul, rawon daging, garang asem ayam, timlo solo, tahu pong, tahu telur, racikan selat, garang asem, lontong opor, nasi opor, nasi langi, nasi bakmoy, nasi bakpuy, nasi lodeh empal, nasi pecel tumpang, pecel tumpang, nasi pecel, pecel telur, gado-gado, tahu acar, sosis kecap, rambak petis, and unique drink list such as : es lengkeng sarang burung, es dawet, es beras kencur, es asem off course they also got a normal drink list like es jeruk & friends. on weekend they also served : nasi liwet, bistik lidah sapi, botok teri, gadon daging sapi.
On the table there was a plate of traditional snacks like : sosis solo, and several kue basah/jajan pasar. we ordered : nasi bakmoy & nasi lodeh empal, 2 types of Lumpia Semarang and I ordered es beras kencur turned out I can’t stand the Jamuish taste, so I swapped mine with SC’s hot tea . The bakmoy and lodeh tasted good, but I don’t really like the Lumpia Semarang‘s taste. it had a very strong ‘bamboo shoot smell’. I had lumpia semarang before, but I don’t remember that it has such a trong smell. What do you think?
