Little Things at the Corner of Gede Market Solo

19:28LPM Campus



lpmcampus.ukm.ums.ac.id-(27/11) Hello Campuser, if you are getting tired and saturated with many college and organizational tasks, it is not wrong to refreshing for a moment. One of them is with a culinary tour. It is the easiest way to refreshing in overseas cities like Solo for example. You can find a variety of foods here, from traditional food to modern food. Modern food is a too mainstream, isn't it? Even we can find modern food in every corner of campus. So, what if this time we are hunting traditional food of Solo?


Traditional food can be found in one of the markets in the solo city, namely Gede market. To be able to find traditional snacks in Gede market, you should start a culinary tour in the morning. Little information about Gede market, Gede market is a market with an architectural design that is old, ancient, but still solid and certainly unique. Gede market which stands in Solo is a building that has architecture with the flow of Indo-Europe, this architectural style is influenced by the architect of Thomas Karsten, he is a close friend of Pakubuwono X. Karsten is very respectful of Java culture has a view that Indo-European architecture should refer to Java architecture that has long been developed in society and then reborn into a new form without
losing the old elements.
 
Gede market consists of two building blocks. In the first block, there are traditional snacks, vegetables, fruits, fish, and others. In this block, we will find traditional snacks that may have been difficult to find that is Lenjongan. Lenjongan is a traditional food in which contains cenil, gatot, dried cassava, tiwul, black sticky rice, white sticky rice with grated coconut sprinkle with melted brown sugar. The price of a complete portion is 5 thousand rupiah. It is cheap and quite filling. It is also suitable for the student, is not it?



There we can find some merchants Lenjongan, just choose what you want. If you are not satisfied with buying lenjongan, let's continue the trekking to the second block. To the west of this second building, we will find traditional food derived from China. That is tahok. Tahok used to be known as Tahoa which means crushed soybean. Tahok has a taste similar to tofu just texture is softer, similar to silk pudding. Only with 7 thousand rupiahs, we can already enjoy
tahok watered with warm ginger juice.

Still not satisfied?
You can continue to round the Gede market, and you will be pampered with the existing snacks. See, refreshing does not mean we have to go to the far place and takes a lot of time. Try exploring the place around us and discover its uniqueness rather than just silence in the room, instead of losing saturation even more saturated?
