Lontong Balap

Typical original Surabaya's food which is cooked from the rice cake(lontong), sprouts, fried tofu, Lento (made of soybean), soy sauce, fried onion and chili sauce.

Lento is made from rice peanuts/Tholo with flour, afterward it is added with galangal, the spring onion, rough-skinned citrus fruit and adequate salt. It is formed round resembled the croquette.

Lontong Balap is full of sprouts. Lontong Balap is not served well without Shellfish satay (sate kerang).Shellfish satay, is made from the shellfish that is boiled and then it is served like satay, but without being roasted.

Lontong Balap will be more delicious to eat if being added with hot soy sauce and chili sauce. We can find this food in surabaya around jalan kranggan, the most famous is "lontong balap pak gendut". Otherwise we can find this similar food on west java as fried sprouts (tauge goreng).
