Rujak Bebeg (Mashed Fruit Mix)

If you ever visit Jakarta, Rujak Bebeg is one of the 'must-try' items. Not only it can pamper my tongue, but also it is healthy. It's made from many kind of fresh fruits which mashed together, added with brown sugar, salt, terasi (fermented shrimp paste). What kind of fruits it contains, you may ask. Well, to be honest, it's up to the seller. The main fruits are bengkuang (yam bean), ubi (sweet potato), jambu air and kedondong. The rest is different between one and another seller.

Where can I find it? 
The seller is nomaden. They move from one place to another place. So you cannot looking for them. You wait for them passing in front of you. The one in my images can be found around Green Garden area, West Jakarta.

How does it taste?
Sweetness from brown sugar combined with sourness of fresh fruits and spiciness from chili (adjustable). 

It depends on the seller. This one is IDR 5K. I once found smaller portion with IDR 3.5K. (early 2013)

So when you find a Rujak Bebeg seller around you, do not hesitate to try. Go get a life! ;)
