Jawa Timur Trip - Farewell Surabaya

We were ready to get back to the reality!

We spent our night packing all the things that we bought in Malang and Surabaya and the next morning, we were only left with one breakfast and we were bound to the airport already.

To this

We chose our last meal in Surabaya to be Lontong Balap Pak Gendut. Lontong Balap is a traditional food of East Java consisting lontong (steamed rice cake), tahu goreng (fried tofu), taoge (bean sprout), lentho (nut cake), bawang goreng (fried shallot) with clear base sweet savoury soup. Literally, lontong balap means racing rice cake. It got its name from the custom long long time ago that the street sellers of this food would race to be the earliest to reach the market and get the best spot. Until now, even though there is no such custom anymore, Lontong Balap retains its name.

Taa daa, Lontong Balap

The taste of this food is quite unique and tasty. I will not miss this food but it is not bad either. I think, if you ever visit Surabaya, you ought to try this food so that you know.

We made another short stop at Spikoe, the famous shop for lapis surabaya before heading to the airport.

We parted way at the airport.

We parted with Surabaya.

Jawa Timur, till I see you again.

Love is in the air,
Little Feet
