Kartiko Pasar Atum - Jajan Pasar Surabaya

Kartiko Jajan Pasar - Traditional Indonesian Snack


Kartiko - Jajan Pasar adalah penjual cemilan dan kue tradisional di Surabaya. Terletak di lantai dua pasar atum, mall favorit kaum hawa, berdekatan dengan eskalator. Kalau biasanya tempat serupa hanya mementingkan rasa makanan, di sini tidak demikian, desain tempatnya juga mendapat perhatian yang besar.


Kartiko is a traditional Indonesian snack seller. Snack in this case include some heavy ones with rice as base ingredient. This store is located in Pasar Atum mall, a heaven for some woman, though parking is hell and facilities are poor. What attracts them is the many variations of boutiques, selling fashion items from lower to upper middle class clientele.

This kind of store usually just emphasize on the food taste, but not for Kartiko, they also put as much attention on their store design.

Tempatnya didesain dengan menggunakan tema dapur tradisional Indonesia, terutama dari kaum peranakan. Terdapat banyak perkakas dapur yang mengingatkan saya pada dapur nenek saya. Mulai dari panci kuno hingga tutup gelasnya yang unik.

This place is designed in traditional Indonesian kitchen theme, with cutleries, pot and other kitchen equipment that is a rarity nowadays.

Kartiko - my fave, Klepon
Favorit saya di sana adalah kleponnya, tidak seperti kebanyakan klepon asal-asal an yang biasanya gulanya masih utuh, atau tepungnya kurang matang, di sini kleponnya pas matangnya, dan pas rasanya


The green stuff with coconut shaving is my favorite snack, klepon.
Here's a short description from wikipedia :   

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klepon
Klepon (pronounced KlĂȘ-pon) is a traditional rice cake, popular in Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a boiled rice cake, stuffed with liquid gula jawa (palm sugar), and rolled in grated coconut. Klepon is green because it is flavored with a paste made from the pandan or dracaena plant whose leaves are used widely in South East Asian cooking. In other parts of Indonesia, such as in Sumatra and in neighboring Malaysia, klepon is called as onde-onde. While in Java onde-onde is refer to Chinese Jin deui, rice cake ball coated with sesame seeds filled with sweet greenbean paste. Although popular across Southeast Asia, klepon might be originated from Java.
Klepon, along with getuk and cenil usually eaten as morning or afternoon snacks. To eat klepon must be careful because freshly boiled one usually contains hot palm sugar liquid that will pop out in a bite.
A well known klepon comes from Pasuruan (East Java), sold in a box by small kiosk that make a long line on the roadside that connect Malang and Surabaya. They are also sold by seller that get on the Bus that goes to or from Malang / Surabaya.
In the 50's klepon was introduced by Indo immigrants to the Netherlands and is readily available in Dutch or Chinese Indonesian restaurants and supermarkets throughout the country.


Kartiko Jajan Pasar - Tahu Isi

another short description of this snack from wikipedia :

It is commonly found in gorengan (Indonesian fritters) vendors. Commonly eaten with cabai rawit (bird's eye chili).
