Ungaran Restaurants

  • Godong Salam Seafood

    A pleasant surprise, when we decided to have dinner at this Ungaran restaurant, operative since 2010. Advertised as a seafood restaurant, the menu is really creative with items we never found elsewhere. Helen had a 'seafood soup' served in a coconut, containing mussels and other delicacies. Theo chose a 'nasi seafood' which turned out to have a...

It took us six years before we finally went there. Ungaran mountain is not high and relatively well forested. It...

    dieng plateau and gunung ungaran a.k.a candi gedung songo as comparison? well, my first choice will goes to dieng plateau for sure. but gunung ungaran can be the same, if the condition is not over-exposed and 'over-populated'. sadly and pity about candi gedung songo, since the term retreat from the heat and relaxation can not be guaranteed 100%...
