Jogjakarta or Yogyakarta is known for its excellent food. Having local recipes and an extensive international community town offers plenty of options for visitors. I want to share 5 of the culinary options at Jogjakarta that you should try at least once.
- Sate Klatak (Warung Mas Bari, near Wonokromo Market, Pleret)
Sate Klatak at Warung Mas Bari is one of the best goats Satay in Yogyakarta. The satay is pretty simple. They grill the meat using a tiny little salt and garlic. The unique characteristic about it is that the skewer isn’t bamboo but comes in a bicycle’s spokes. This makes the meat tender.
- Gudeg (Gudeg Pawon)
Gudeg is among the renowned regional foods here in Yogyakarta. This is one dish that you should try if you see Yogya. One of the places needs to become the one on Janturan road named Gudeg Pawon When many places serve Gudeg in Yogyakarta. Besides its tasty Gudeg, eating at the restaurant provides you a terrific experience of old fashioned Javanese style kitchens. The restaurant is open from 10-12 pm.
- Nasi Pecel (Warung in Demangan Baru Street)
There isn’t anything fancy about this small restaurant. The place is clean and basic. They have a limited menu of Nasi Kuning (Yellow Rice) and Nasi Pecel. The very best thing is that they are delicious. It is a fantastic option for breakfast (if you are lucky, you can get it for lunch, they still sold out quite quickly), and it’s very affordable.
- Bebek Goreng (Warung in Mangkuyudan Street)
This small warung in Mangkuyudan street gets the greatest fried duck in the town. The Nasi Uduk (coconut rice) is exceptional; the sambal (sauce) is so tasty. The important point is the duck is tender.
- Bakmi Goreng & Bakmi Godhog (Special Bakmi and Nasi Goreng Pak Pale)
Bakmi means meat noodles and is a dish that came together with Chinese immigrants into Indonesia. This dish resembles the fried noodles you’ll consume in Bali, but the difference is in the bakmi. One of the well-known foods at Yogyakarta is a meat bakmi godhog and dish indigenous to Yogyakarta. Rather than being fried, these noodles arrive in a Javanese soup served with poultry and vegetables.
The place’s title is Special Bakmi and Nasi Goreng Pak Pale, plus it moves around 5 pm to 7 pm, it takes two hours for the food. It’s very popular, and now there are two chefs! So, our best trick is to see between 5 and 7 pm. Both meals were good since fried things are the most delicious, but some preferred the bakmi Goreng.
- Nasi Brongkos & Es Campur (Warung Handayani in Alun Alun Kidul Keraton)
Warung Handayani is famous for its Nasi Brongkos. The dish is more renowned than Gudeg. However, Nasi Brongkos is Yogyakarta’s other neighborhood cuisine. It is basically rice with red bean soup. Other than Nasi Brongkos additionally sells Es Campur, Nasi Soto, and much more. Es Campur is a beverage made from Tapai (traditional fermented foods discovered), coconut flesh, probably syrup, coconut milk, and ice cubes.
Vacation is more than just the food. It’s about making long-lasting memories. Discover more adventures in Yogyakarta by visiting Wonderful Indonesia.
