Here is my third post^^
I’m so happy i can write this post again. In the third post, I will write the food which i found when i was in Ponorogo City. In my current job, i always have schedule to go outside my city, and in this chance i want to share the authentic food in Ponorogo.
Chicken Satay (Sate Ayam) Ponorogo, it’s very famous in here. It’s always have been a must eat food when you come to Ponorogo. There is a place where you get this delicious satay in Ponorogo. This place is called “Sate Ayam Bpk. H. Tukri Sobikun”. It’s located in street of Lawu 1/ 43k. If you come here there is place called “Satay Village” (Kampung Sate), and you looking the place which have big parking, and you will found it.
If you eat in this place, you can see many pictures hanging in the wall. That pictures is the portrait of very famous person in Indonesia. It’s the proof that place is very recommended place in Ponorogo City to get the famous chicken satay. One famous example person is Mr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the ex-president of Republic Indonesia, now Mr. Joko Widodo of course. You can see the picture below. It’s not just Mr. President, but most famous person in Indonesia is come here too.
When i came there, I’m interested with an article in there. The article was put in one of famous newspaper in Indonesia. The article talked about this place, and became a recommended place when you came here. The headline of article is like this “Guarantee of fresh chickens every day” (Jamin Ayam Segar Tiap Hari). It’s such amazing, how Satay Mr. Tukri Sobikun exist till now (it’s been 35 years), and have many customers around Indonesia. Because, he always use fresh chicken every day, not a broilers one. In the article, the daughter of the Mr. Sobikun said ” we always buy live chickens from our supplier every day and cut itself.”
Back to the topic, let’s talk about satay. If you eat here, you must order at the cashier. One portion of satay, it will cost Rp 23.000, you will get 10 skewer of satay include with rice cake (lontong). If you don’t want lontong, you can change it with rice. One portion of the rice cost Rp 3000. Or you can eat both^^
One portion is very enough for me, because the meat in the skewers have large size and very thin. It’s not chewy, it is more like crisp because it’s very thin. Don’t forget to ask chili and fresh shallot if you eat in there. I always eat satay with fresh shallot, cause it will make the satay have spicy fresh taste from the shallot, and add some crispness. The special one in here is the peanut dressing, it’s very tasty and very mild, combine with sweet soy sauce.
So if you come to Ponorogo City, don’t forget to try it. If you don’t know the place use your gps or ask with local people there, you will find it. Thanks for reading my post, i am very sorry for the low quality image, cause when i came there the electricity is off, so i couldn’t get some light of it. If i come here again, i promise i will get a best picture, and posting it again.^^
