Selam everybody.....Merhaba from Turkey.
My today today post is another Surabaya-nese ( if İ may say so for things from Surabaya 😊 )
Surabaya is capital city of East Java province and it's my homeland. A second largest city in population after Jakarta.
And as other region / city in İndonesia Surabaya also famous with richness of it's own typical cuisine. Talking about Surabaya food is like holding very long of shopping list that you want and you need them all! Surabaya foods are rich and full of flavor distinguish from other cuisine from other İndonesian city/ region.
And one of typical ingredients from Surabaya (and neighboring towns) is "petis". Petis is product ingredient made of shrimp in paste form. Some call it shrimp paste but İ call it just "petis" so not being confuse with "terasi" or "belacan" (another shrimp product). Below here you can see the different between "petis" and "terasi/belacan".
But both shrimp products are staple ingredients in most İndonesian cuisines. İ brought them from İndonesia last year during my family visit.
