  Packets of krecek in the Market

Definition of Krecek: Processed Buffalo Skin, available in the form of a cracker before cooking. It is usually served drenched in curry with Gudeg ( a Yogya Specialty ) or as a crisp cracker with Nasi Liwet ( A Solonese Specialty).

Favorite Dish: Before I came to Solo, I kept wondering what Krecek would taste like. Now that I've tasted it, I would say that the Chinese Fish Gall Bladder comes to close second in taste. The texture is gelatinous and a tad tasteless when it's drenched with curry but it has a faint whiff of beef when it's fried to a crisp. Needless to say, I prefer it fried.

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$10
