7. Lapis Cake
Lapis cake is very easily recognizable from its color stripes pattern. Usually, it is composed of the combination of two or three different colors, white, green, and red. The white accent is coming from the original rice flour and starch base color. The green stripe is derived from the native color of pandan. And the red one is colored by a mixed red rose syrup. Interestingly, each color functioned as color layers which have the same thickness and combined beautifully so there will be no adjacent layers with the same color. Layering concept is quite strong on this cake. That’s why we call it as “lapis”. Lapis means layer in English.
When I was a child, this is my most favorite Jajanan Pasar ever. And again it is not because of its taste, but more about how the way we eat it. Believe it or not, each layer can be separated easily if the method is right. When your method is wrong, then some layers may ripped apart. Of course, this will be ruined your whole mood. That’s the challenge.
8. Angku Ketan / Othok-othok
The ingredients, how to cook, and even its mung bean crumbs inside are all similar with Angku Jambu, except for its shape. Angku Jambu is fruit wannabe oriented while Angku Ketan or Othok-othok is turtle alike. The taste is as good as Angku Jambu. But the memories that remain are slightly different. #apasih
9. Gethuk Lindri
Gethuk Lindri is one of gethuk family variants. As we know that gethuk is a well-known Indonesian food that made from steamed cassava. Crushed, pulverized, and then mixed with various sugars according to its type. It would be more delicious when mixed with grated coconut.
Actually, there are some items that I have not mentioned. Such as Klepon, Nagasari, Klanting, Lupis, Gatot, etc. Unfortunately, I do not have enough data and photos of them. So, I decided not to mention it on this post. Maybe next time. This is not a promise ya… 😛
All the items on this post are bought from one place called Sari Sari. You can find it at the center of Bandung, Jalan Sultan Tirtayasa No. 17. At a glance, the item of Jajanan Pasar that being sold in here is very complete I think, except for some items that I mentioned above. Next is about the price. If I may say, the average price of the items is quite reasonable. The range is approximately at Rp.1000 to Rp.5000 per common item which I explained on this post. Not too expensive right. To be honest, I appreciate Sari Sari for preserving the heritage of our tradition, Indonesian traditional pastry and cakes.
