Uncommon Breakfast in Sop Manten

Why do I write it as “uncommon”? Because it was uncommon to eat this food for breakfast. It won’t really make your stomach full for a long time and it was not accompanied by a serving of rice. We’re Indonesian commonly eat rice for our meal so anything without rice is considered as side dish (sounds like somebody could get bigger in no time).

Some days ago I went to this restaurant called Warung Sop Manten Mbah Atmo. It was situated pretty far from downtown but since my auntie took her car so it was very fine with me (of course, free transportation and free meal…) This restaurant is specialized in Sop Manten which was a soup that usually served in wedding ceremonies for the guests. It has a small serving and won’t make you full (at all). You can see what it looks like here. It doesn’t look very tasty though but it is actually taste very fine.

It has varieties of food but it specialized in Sop Manten and Selat Segar.

Back to what I ate! People from outside my town usually called it as Selat Solo (or literally Solo’s special selat) but we’re from the town always called it Selat (only) or Selat Segar (whatever you prefer). It’s basically our kind of salad (yes, and selat is actually pronounce like salad.) It consisted of a slice of beef, a half or one egg, carrots, string beans, slices of tomatoes, potatoes, and many more.

This food called "Selat Segar" usually served in parties or event similar to that. It's basically like salad but with sour thin sauce.

It looks good, right? It’s kind of sour because of the thin sauce but it complements the vegetables and beef greatly. I like to eat it in the evening (not in the morning like when I took the pics). But basically I can’t complain about it since it was practically a free food. LOL. I have the recipe from another blog though but it’ written in bahasa Indonesia so you might need to translate it first to English. I’ll try to translate it for you another time when I have a spare time. Anyway, here’s the recipe (all credit was taken by the blog author herself).

Have a good day!
