Enjoy Typical Food In Our Hometown And MKB Blog Hop 62

“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.” -Wallace Stevens
Within three weeks I and my family traveled back home. In this vacation, I was busy with various legal activities. But I understand that the main purpose was to meet my mother, mother-in-law, brother, nieces, and nephews. To whom I always miss when I'm away. Chatting, enjoy delicious food in togetherness, spend time together even if only a few days.

 Enjoy Typical Food In Our Hometown

Something I don't want to miss was visiting beautiful places to take photos and enjoy the delicious foods of my town. But to reach a tourist destination, it will take a long time, because my house is in the center of the town while tourist attractions are on the edge of the town or even outside the town.
The very hot weather with the blazing sun made me reluctant to drive long distances. So this time I chose the Jetis Batik Village (Kampung Batik Jetis) to fill my camera, cause this place is not far from my home.
This village is the center of Sidoarjo's typical Indonesian batik craftsmen. About four years ago this village was decorated with beautiful batik paintings on the walls of the house. But too bad, now the place has been abandoned and damaged. The conditions are as shown in the photos below. Too bad!
But don’t worry, the Batik Sidoarjo are still beautiful to collect. They have so much beautiful and meaningful patterns! You can buy batik Sidoarjo from batik stores in Kampung Batik Jetis.
“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta
What should not be missed is also eating exotic food that is only delicious in Sidoarjo. I'm not sure this food will be delicious too if it's cooked by someone who isn't Sidoarjo people, hahaha ... maybe I'm a bit fanatic in terms of appetite!

Enjoy typical food in my hometownThis is the most exotic food from my hometown: Rujak Cingur.
It made of beef's nose, vegetables, lontong (rice cake), tahu (fried tofu), tempe, with black shrimp sauce and chili

Sayur Klentang (sorry, I can't find the English for the "klentang" vegetables), Fried Milk Fish, Salted Duck Egg, and Sambal... super delicious!
