Apart from its many tourist attractions, if there is one thing that all the tourists will unanimously like is Yogyakarta’s (Jogja) food. One can find all kinds of food everywhere. From dirt cheap to cheap to value for money. T
he cost has to be less as this is the university town of Indonesia and students who predominantly eat all their meals outside, but cant afford to pay a lot for their food.
This unique cost and value mix and coupled with the excellent Central Java cuisine has ensured that Jogja has a wide variety of food that is sold from the wee hours of the morning to the late hours of the night. Even if you have stayed here for a week, like I have, it is difficult to sample as its delicacies. If you are running short of time, you should find this restaurant behind the Sultan’s palace near the Malioboro street, which has a great assortment of dishes in their buffet menu, but you pay for what you eat. I am sure you will end up licking your fingers and lips the entire duration of your stay in Yogyakarta.
