Yo­gyakarta is one of the fa­vorite places to visit in In­done­sia, both by do­mes­tic and for­eign tourists. Not only of­fer­ing in­ter­est­ing sights, but this cul­tural city is also fa­mous as a culi­nary des­ti­na­tion which of­fers a wide range of food, each with its own dis­tinc­tive taste. Some dishes are unique, and they rep­re­sent the char­ac­ter of Yo­gyakarta’s cui­sine; those dishes in­clude Gudeg, Bakpia, Sate Kere, Sate Klathak, Bakmi Jowo and Nasi kuc­ing. One of the set menus is Nasi Kuc­ing – a small por­tion of rice usu­ally with top­pings and wrapped in banana leaves. Nasi Kuc­ing can be eas­ily found in Angkringan. Angkringan comes from the Ja­vanese word of “Angkring” which means sit down, Angkringan used to be a push­cart that sells a va­ri­ety of tra­di­tional food and bev­er­ages on roads in Cen­tral Java and Yo­gyakarta. Now, Angkringan is very pop­u­lar in Yo­gyakarta; it usu­ally has a tra­di­tional set­ting and a very com­fort­able place where you can spend a good time with your fam­ily and friends while en­joy­ing a wide range of dishes. All the dishes are served in small por­tions usu­ally a bite (or two) size. The aim is so you can try as many dishes as you want. There are so many Angkringan in Yo­gyakarta, but I rec­om­mend try­ing Angkringan Gad­jah. Although the im­pres­sion of tra­di­tional is very strong in this place, it is also fol­low­ing the trend, and mak­ing this place very in­sta­gram­able. Some spots will make your In­sta­gram the envy of your friends. Some of the most pop­u­lar spots here in­clude a col­lec­tion of col­or­ful an­cient win­dows and walls with mu­rals de­pict­ing the city of Yo­gyakarta inside the restau­rant. A spe­cial dis­count is also avail­able to guests who up­load their pho­tos to their social me­dia while in Angkringan Gad­jah. You will never get bored din­ing here at Angkringan Gad­jah. Why? Sim­ply be­cause around 150 dishes are be­ing served on a daily ba­sis for you to choose from. From a wide range of nasi kuc­ing, sa­tay, snacks, vegetable dishes to dif­fer­ent types of sam­bal, lala­pan, tra­di­tional desserts, and many more. Food is not the only star in this place; there is also a wide se­lec­tion of bev­er­ages for you to choose from, in­clud­ing its favourite bev­er­ages Wed­hang Gad­jah and Wed­hang Mesra. Per­son­ally, I pre­fer Wed­hang Gad­jah, not only does it tastes good, but it also makes my body warm. The por­tion of Wed­hang Gad­jah is quite big so you can con­ve­niently share it with your friends, although I’ve never shared mine. There are many in­ter­est­ing and rea­son­able pro­mo­tions avail­able here, Such as; all u can eat (rice + 3 kinds of veg­eta­bles + 2 kinds of side dishes + drink) all for only IDR. 15,000.
