16:00 04/04/2014 Must try Nasi Gudeg! Countless times we heard this rice dish all throughout Yogyakarta journey whenever we asked locals. Being a foodie, we can’t let pass without sampling this staple food in Jogja. As recommended, we aimed to visit Gudeg Yu Djum touted to be the house of the best Nasi Gudeg in Yogyakarta. The main branch is a bit far so we settle to the nearby branch close to Malioboro Street. Contrary to what we read online about the long queue, it was quite the opposite. We arrived there late lunch so only a few customers were in.
The branch near to Malioboro has a small dining area with a fusion of classic and contemporary art decors.
Gudeg is made of unripe jackfruit mixed with palm sugar, coconut milk and spices then boiled overnight
Gudeg is dominantly sweet and it’s complemented by a savoury spicy Krecek (made of cow skin crackers). There is strike balanced of sweet, salty, spicy that explodes in your mouth every time we took a spoonful of this dish.
We’d washed down this delectable treat with Iced tea which turned to be a good pair.
Address: Jalan Dagen No.2C, Malioboro,
Yogyakarta 55271, Indonesia
