Jogjakarta is famous for its great food. With a large international community and great local recipes the city offer plenty of culinary options for visitors. We want to share with you 5 of the best culinary choices in Jogjakarta.
Gudeg is one of the famous local food here in Jogjakarta. This is one dish that you should definitely try when you visit Jogja.
Nasi/Rice Pecel – Warung in Demangan Baru Street
There is nothing fancy about this small restaurant. The place is clean and pretty basic. They only have limited menu of Nasi Kuning (Yellow rice) and Nasi Pecel. The best thing is they are really tasty (so tasty!). It is a good choice for breakfast (if you are lucky, you can get it for lunch, they run out quite quickly), and it is pretty cheap.
Es/Ice Campur – Warung Handayani in Alun Alun Kidul Keraton
Warung Handayani is really famous for the Nasi Brongkos. Nasi Brongkos is the other local cuisine of Jogja, but the dish is less famous than Gudeg. It is basically rice with red beans soup. Other than Nasi Brongkos, Warung Handayani also sells Nasi Soto (which I like), Es Campur (which I freakin love) and much more. Es campur is a drink made from Tapai (traditional fermented food found), coconut flesh, probably syrup, coconut milk and ice cubes.
Sate/Satay Klatak – Warung Mas Bari, near Wonokromo Market, Pleret
Sate Klatak is the best goat Satay. The satay is pretty simple though. They just grill the meat with a tiny of salt and probably garlic. The unique thing about it is that the skewer is not bamboo, but comes from the spokes of a bicycle. This apparently makes the meat more tender.
Chocolate Lava Cake – Lotus Mio in Tirtodipuran Street
Lotus Mio. They have pretty awesome simple decorations – almost everything is made from wood. You kind of get that peaceful ambiance, especially with the small Buddha statues in front of the door. Anyways, basically the food and gelato are all tasty, – it’s a chocolate cake served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and so far the best dessert in town.
Bebek Goreng/Fried Duck – Warung in Mangkuyudan Street
Actually prefer grilled duck rather than fried duck. This small warung in Mangkuyudan street somehow met the minimum requirement, even though it is fried duck. The nasi uduk (coconut rice) is nice; the sambal (sauce) is so tasty and the important thing the duck is tender. it is better than Bebek Cak Koting, the famous one in Yogyakarta.
