Break the fast with local cuisine at these Jakarta restaurants

Pasar Papringan Go[w]es to Kaum is slated to run until June 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (JP/Jessicha Valentina)

There's only a week left before the holy month of Ramadhan ends.

Those who want to organize a last minute bukber (short for buka puasa bersama, which means breaking-of-the-fast gathering) may want to consider these two Indonesian restaurants.

Kaum Jakarta

You may have heard of Pasar Papringan, a traditional market that opens once every 35 days in Ngadiprono hamlet in Temanggung regency, Central Java.

However, this month you don’t need to travel all the way to Ngadiprono to experience the traditional market, as restaurant Kaum Jakarta in Central Jakarta is presenting its version of Pasar Papringan during Ramadhan.

Dubbed Pasar Papringan Go[w]es to Kaum, the restaurant uses various cutlery and furniture, such as bamboo stools, terracotta cookware and bamboo utensils, that were usually used at Pasar Papringan.

Pasar Papringan Go[w]es to Kaum is slated to run until June 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

. Sayur Babanci adalah salah satu kuliner ikonik khas Betawi yang kini mulai langka. Kelangkaan ini disebabkan karena bahan dan rempah-rempah untuk membuat sayur ini sudah sulit ditemukan di Jakarta. Dinamakan Sayur Babanci karena sayur ini tidak jelas jenisnya, bahkan tidak bisa dikategorikan sebagai sayur karena tidak ada campuran sayur.  Karena sulit mendapatkan bahan-bahannya, kini warga Betawi biasanya menyajikan sayur ini hanya pada hari -hari besar keagamaan sebagai menu keluarga, seperti buka puasa, Hari Raya Idul Fitri, dan Hari Raya Idul Adha. Beberapa orang juga meyakini bahwa nama babanci diambil dari perpaduan antara babah dan enci yang disinyalir makanan ini dulunya dibuat oleh para peranakan Betawi-Tionghoa. Karena hanya dari golongan mandor dan tuan tanah saja yang bisa menghadirkan makanan ini pada hari raya. Secara umum, Sayur Babanci rasanya menyerupai gulai yang sangat dominan di aroma dan rasa rempah yang kuat. Lazimnya kuliner Betawi pada umumnya, ketupat babanci juga mencermikan karakter masyarakat Betawi yang jenaka dan nyleneh. Nama babanci, selain dianggap tidak berkelamin, ada juga yang beranggapan bahwa ketupat ini dulu adalah penganan favorit para banci atau waria.
