Probolinggo, an acculturation city between various cultures, dominated predominantly Javanese culture with Madurese culture. Speaking of the culture then also not separated with the food or culinary growing in the city of Probolinggo itself. One of the culinary that always exist in every city in East Java and this food is local food places near me, its called pecel. It seems the food is called pecel has become part of the life of the people who exist in this island of Java.
Eating local food trend “pecel”, this food uses peanut sauce as the base ingredients. Initially the food is usually enjoyed with various kinds of these vegetables, “pecel” is defined as food that is destroyed, this food is usually served with boiled vegetables and side dishes are served with different mats, can use a banana leaf base called pincuk.
Likewise with the city of Probolinggo, pecel food is also a trend of local food and become the food of choice in this city. One pecel which is also a choice of culinary lovers as well is Pecel located on the corner of Panglima Sudirman Street, in front of the Store Semeru Probolinggo. But unfortunately pecel is only there at night. Perhaps that’s why people call it a rather spooky name, “Pecel Pocong”.
Pecel Pocong is not like a typical shop, its shape is just a simple place on the sidewalk in front of Semeru Shop that closed at night. I myself do not know why to be called as pecel pocong, maybe it’s just night only until the morning.
Seeing the relative night conditions in a state of lonely and coincident place seller pocong is sold is close to the market in Probolinggo, it seems that the target market of this mother is the people who sell in the market and the traders in the new market who started selling their wares at night . In addition the visitors are the people who just got home from work at night.
For the price, do not worry comrades, very affordable, therefore pecel is always crowded by visitors. Because this pecel is only available at night, the visitors do not have to worry about the difficulty of parking the vehicle, because the street street conditions are also quiet, allowing the visitors to park on the right and left of the road.
For pecel sold, the vegetables are the same as pecel in general, among others, long beans, sprouts, cucumbers, cassava leaves and basil leaves, freshly doused with chilli spice flavor, also called pecel sauce.
In addition to pecel rice, corn is also provided as an alternative to food choices other than white rice. Side dish is also diverse there is tempe, tofu, eggs, spicy vegetables tofu eggs, fried beef, and vegetable curry jackfruit.
As a complement of pecel rice, also provided a substitute or substitute for food made from fried flour. The visitors can buy separately this object.
So comrades, do not worry hunger at night, because pecel pocong can be a culinary alternative at night.
