This time round, my post is about ‘jajanan pasar’ or traditional cakes being sold at local market in Bali. This is very basic introduction so there will be not much details given.
Bika Ambon from Medan, Ambon is the capital of Maluku province in eastern part of Indonesia whereas Medan is the capital of North Sumatera province in western part of Indonesia. No explanations why the name is ‘bika ambon’.
The price of each cakes varies your region and where did you buy. Luxury Indonesian restaurants will charge you up to 200% than you can buy in wet markets. Also, if you’re buying in wet markets, make sure to watch out the hygiene of the stall as well.
More is coming up on my trip to Surabaya
