Ask every Javanese in Indonesia you meet. Most of them must be very familiar with “Pecel”. Yes, this is a quite popular traditional salad, especially in Java. I myself like Pecel most!
Unlike various fresh fruits and vegetables with mayonnaise sauce, this one consists of mixed boiled vegetables dressed with peanut sauce. Can you just imagine how it tastes? But the sweet peanut sauce can be spicy too, depending on your request in case you want some chilies added on your Pecel dressing. And just like other Indonesian dishes, this one is also served with rice.
No, you don’t need to take the rice yourself from the bowl. Pecel comes with steamed rice or compressed rice cake called Lontong or Ketupat. There are also some additions like tempeh, tofu,
Well, that was a brief introduction about Pecel. What I am going to tell you is my favorite breakfast meal when I was in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. It is one of the places where Pecel actually origins from. And just like everyone, I joined others to taste the legendary Pecel Winongo at Jalan Panderman, Malang, Indonesia.
Guess what? This street food stall is always crowded. As I remember there was no chair or table provided so customers could enjoy their breakfast on the spot. Instead, everyone bought the Pecel on the go. People even seemed not to mind to wait in line at holidays for this tasty breakfast.
I actually like to avoid the crowd, but Pecel Winongo seemed to be my dirty exception. Unlike other foods served on a plate completed with a fork and spoon, this one was packed with banana leaves, called pincuk. I do not know what others think but I could still feel the fresh aroma of the leaves, adding more taste to the dish.
It was totally not an extravagance. The content itself was also humble with some standard vegetables for Pecel like bean sprouts, long beans
Some other additional complementariness’ are also available. Take for example tempeh and crispy rempeyek. There are also friend eggs, meat satay, empal and so on. No wonder, a packed of Pecel Winongo could keep my stomach full until the afternoon meal.
You know what? I have just got new information that Pecel Winongo opens a new branch at Jalan
