    Actually, Nasi Jamblang is ordinary rice with variety of side dishes. What makes it unique is the rice is covered by teak leaves. Another thing that makes it unique is the side dishes are all served on the table. There are about 20 side dishes. Each of them are put in a tin big bowl. After we get the rice covered by teak leaves and served on a tin plate, we can take any side dishes we like. The choices are fried tofu and tempe (fermented soybean cake), ommelette, mussel in skewer, mussel, perkedel kentang (croquette of spicy boiled potato), potato in skewer, chicken liver and gizzard, cow liver and spleen, boiled egg, tofu prepared with soy sauce, squid, prawn, etc. To make it more delicious, it is served a special chili. It is red chili that sliced very thin.

    When we have finished, the vendor calculates how much we have to pay based on our reports of what we have eaten.

    mie koclok

    For dinner.

    Mi Koclok from Cirebon different is the thick gravy. The gravy is more like porridge because it is mixed with rice flour and the taste is salty. The salty taste of the thick gravy is very soft on my tongue.

    Favorite Dish: mie koclok: noodle, shred chicken, bean sprout (poured with boiling water and drained), boiled egg

    NIGHT LESEHAN - SATE KALONG

    by ancient_traveler Updated Nov 3, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At night, the Kanoman market area is became street vendor stall (lesehan style). One of the most popular is sate kalong or literally, bats' meat satay. But don't worry, no single bat has been turned into a satay -- the people of Cirebon like to inject some humor into their cooking. Actually, sate kalong is made from minced buffalo meat (not bat meat) that has been pressed, spiced and flattened. The tasted is sweet.

    delicious nasi jamblang (c) ukirsari

    oh please, don't ever say you're visited cirebon already if you're not trying nasi jamblang yet ;)

    jamblang is local lingo to say teakwood. so literally, 'nasi jamblang' is steam rice wrapped into teakwood leaf. and in the other side, 'jamblang' also became a village's name in cirebon.

    nasi jamblang is served with kind of assortment that you can choose by your own. from chicken to seafood, from tofu to another deep fried assortments. served with delicious hot chili sauce.

    one of the most popular nasi jamblang sellers are situated in front of grage mall. mostly people gather after midnight! so, don't worry if you get tummy rumbling around midnight :D

    Favorite Dish: of course nasi jamblang! and fave assortments are: steam mushroom with shredded coconut wrapped in banana leaf, belacan chili sauce, stir-fried 'black' calamari, potato satay and fried shrimp.

    Magna (formerly Maxim's) Seafood and Chinese Food Restaurant ( English, Chinese and Cantonese speaking found here.)

    Here is the address -

    Jl. Syarief Abdurachman /
    Jl. Bahagia 45 - 47
    Tel: (0231) 208045 or 203185

    It is near the market Pasar Kanoman. I took a trishaw from the market to there. Cheap.

    Just behind this restaurant is a port called 'Pelabuhan Cirebon'. Go through the gate and with a short walk you will see the junk ships. Other than that, there is nothing much to see.

    Favorite Dish: Sharks Fin Soup

    Fried Frogs legs

    Steamed Prawns
