    The House Of Raminten: Good Food

    by lebonginsomnia Written Oct 6, 2014

    This is a hugely popular and very busy restaurant which serves local food, its packed with Indonesians and there is usually a big queue, having said that though the turnover is very quick and you don't wait for long - there is a TV and lots of chairs anyway so waiting is comfortable. The food is very good and the menu, which is quite short, is easy to work out, the drinks come in huge bowls by the way! The downside, for those less flexible, is that the seating is all on mats and there are no tables and chairs. The staff are very busy and rush around madly they are all clad in local clothing and all seem very pleasant. The place is cheap, is fun and a bit quirky and serves delicious food ...

    Favorite Dish: Traditional Boiled Noodles

    Bladok: Good food and good ambiance

    by Jeanling Updated Jun 20, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My friend insisted we come to Bladok and we are happy we made that decision. We sat at the garden like al-fresco seating area - good ambiance. Staffs were courteous and pleasant.

    We ordered Tong Seng and Bakwan and for the drinks we had Sappan tea and Javanese coffee. This was the first (and last!) Tong Seng we had in Indonesia during this trip.We love the savory taste of the dish. Bakwan is some sort like the cucur in Malaysia, we still like those even though we don't really consider it as something really special. Sappan tea has a wind reliefing effect with ginger in it. Pricing is reasonable with food served and setup of the restaurant.

    We had a good time, despite the fact that the restaurant were experiencing a power outage during our patronage.

    *The same review by the same author under the user ID gardenchime is also available at Tripadvisor.com*

    Favorite Dish: Tong Seng - we like the savory taste.

    ViaVia Traveler's Cafe: An Authentic Restaurant, where East Meet West

    by uuth Written Apr 7, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant provides combination East and West food and drink.
    For tourists who aren't used to the spice of Indonesian food, you can eat here safely.
    They adjust the taste a bit.

    However, if your tongue is Asian already, best thing to take is the western food.

    Important thing is, they boil the water for the ice and washing the vegetable!

    Also, they have several local alcohol drink that you can zip while chilling out on the second floor.

    Every month, they have young local artist exhibit their artwork.

    Make sure you make reservation for Friday. It's Jazz night! Busy..

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Provencale..
    and Spaghetti ViaVia..

    love also the vitamin rush (nice healthy juice!)

    They're soo ViaVia

    Teh Botol Sosro / Sosro Fruit Tea: Bottled Drinks in Java

    by bpacker Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sweet Javanese Jasmine tea in a bottle. It's one of Indonesia's best loved drink next to the fruit drink by the same brand (Sosro). Available at every warung ( coffee shop ) and drink vendor ( kaki lima ) .

    Favorite Dish: Since portable water is rather questionable over here, your only alternative is to buy bottled mineral water from a vendor. Since Evian or Perrier is not commonly sold here, go for the local "AQUA" brand. It's about 3000Rp (USD0.30) per 500ml. Well, other than water, there's also a popular favourite that also comes in a bottle - Sosro Teh Botol ( teh=tea, botol=bottle). Give it a try if you love sweet jasmine tea. I took a sip of this after a particularly hot day at the kraton and was instantly resfreshed. A bottle cost the same as a bottle of mineral water. The fruit tea is equally refreshing but i prefer the jasmine tea.

    Plenty on Jalan Widjilan: You MUST try nasi gudeg

    by kokoryko Written Oct 12, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A whole street is dedicated to the gudeg in Jogja! And as some say:” visiting Jogja without eating gudeg is not visiting Jogja!”
    The wonderful taste (a bit sweet-sour) of the young grinded jackfruit cooked with coconut milk and numerous spices just makes your plain rice a king’s meal; all people of Jogja are kings, queens and princes! Apart the gudeg itself, which seems complicated to elaborate, the gudeg meals are very simple and I enjoyed a lot all the gudegs I had in Jogja. They usually are presented like you can see on the first picture. In the warung (small shops, food stalls), they usually have their gudeg prepared in advance; on the second picture, you see a big bowl with gudeg on the right side, next to rendang (spicy beef); gudeg is served with rice, meat, eggs and all this gives the platter a quite photogenic appearance, before becoming a gastronomic delight.
    Most warung have the food ready to be served on platters as you can see on picture 3, in small window cases where you can make your choice; many restaurants make food for shops, factories, or receptions, weddings, and on picture 4you see an employee filling lunch boxes with nasi gudeg; the banana tree leaf makes it just nice! On the picture the young man is adding peeled eggs (don’t be afraid of the colour, the eggs are well cooked, and age and spices give the colour).
    Ah, the street dedicated to gudeg is Jalan Wijilan (picture 5) bordered all along by restaurants and food stalls.
    3-4 dollars for a meal.

    You can learn more about gudeg here: http://www.indonesianfoodonline.com/recipes/gudeg-jogja or with the short Wiki article.

    There are lots. . . :): Best food is in the food stalls !

    by kokoryko Written Oct 12, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are places on the planet where you do not need to go to what is commonly considered as a “restaurant”; I love to eat local, and in South East Asia in general, and Jogja in particular, I always have my best food in food stalls, on the street side, sitting on the ground. . . . . The food is always fresh, very often excellent and sometimes. . . surprising!
    Well, in Jogja, the best food is on the streets, and you can find very good food near the northern end of Jalan Malioboro, on the Eastern side; many stalls, covered wit tarpaulins (it rains a lot) just offer a wide range of food, fried (goreng), baked (bakar), stewed (direbus), boiled (rebus), and you just look at the “menu” written on the tarpaulin to make your choice; the waiters and cooks will be happy to explain you whet they have and how they do it. Chicken goat, mutton, soups, whatever you may want, with vegetables and of course rice; ask for sambal (hot sauce) and enjoy with a fresh juice (no beer on the street side!) or a teh manis (sweetened tea).
    On the first picture is an example of a food stall displaying its menu.
    In Malioboro, you will be entertained by singers and musicians (picture 2), and having dinner with some old hits (you can ask the guys who go from one stall to the other to play “Guantanamera” or “La Paloma”, or whatever, they are happy with 1000-3000 rupiah) is quite pleasant. You can also ask one of the cartoonists who frequent the area to draw a souvenir with your sweetheart (picture 3; not me on the pic!).
    The musicians or cartoonists are not at all “harassing”, and are part of the atmosphere of the food stall which are visited almost only by locals; I had a few dinners in different food stalls and was never deceived; I recommend to, at least once in your life, eat the Jogja speciality, the nasi gudeg (rice, with jackfruit sauce and different kinds of meat or eggs); just wonderful, a tip will follow.
    The only weird (to me) thing is sitting on the ground with low table, which, in addition to struggle finding the best position for my legs, gives strange perspectives to the surroundings (picture4), but it is complying to local customs. . . .

    3 dollars for a full meal.

    Goat Head Tongseng: Don't miss.. tongseng delicious kind of soup..

    by antydetty Written Aug 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Recently I discovered another pleasant surprise in the hunt for unique dishes regions. This surprises I found in a village in Muntilan, not far from Borobudur Temple, Central Java.

    Actually, this place is actually not a shop, but ordinary people's houses. In addition to a modest dwelling house, built additional space that only consists of two rooms. Optional vestibule floored halls mat, a place for guests to eat while lesehan. Behind it, is the kitchen with two wood stoves. Kitchen recently began activity after sunset prayers fulfilled. The guests are come from various villages around.

    The kitchen is only serving one type of cuisine, which is tongseng goat's head. The guests did not expect the other dishes. Most have booked through a cell phone before coming. Each time, the kitchen expanded fragrant garlic pan-fried, then cooking smells typical tongseng.
    Pretty neat presentation. The goat's head was not present in platter. All the fleshy part of the goat's head was boiled in spices - tongue, beef cheeks, eyes, thick skin, brain, and others separated from the bone, then cut small pieces (bite size). We do not interfere with the bones when eating.

    Liquid –half thick- with the smell of spices is impressive. The smell of mutton not smell anymore. Perhaps because the goats that used young or because the element of garlic is strong enough to disguise the smell of goats. Use of soy sauce is also very appropriate that ring tone is not close curry seasoning sauce taste.

    Favorite Dish: The texture of the meat is good. Everything is soft, but still felt his bite. The pieces are too small to help "soften" the fibers of the meat when bitten. In short, very delicious!

    Every holiday season, Yogyakarta is always full of domestic and International tourists from various cities in Java and outside Java. if you happen to be vacationing in Yogya bring you're own vehicles, of course, many places you can visit to satisfy thae romanticism. There are Borobudur temple, Prambanan, Parangtritis, Samas, Baron, until Kaliurang on the slopes of Merapi. Almost in all routes to tourist areas that now many shops that can bring you reminisce the past.
    One may try is Dawet Kalasan. This is not a diner for filling the belly, but just where it dropped off thirst. The location is on the side of the road, exactly in the slow lane Prambanan Yogyakarta, just across the bong chopsticks the famous Bogem.

  • ViaVia cafe-restaurant: The Place to Be in Jogjakarta

    by bertfelicia Written Jun 2, 2009

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ViaVia is part of a cooperative of 13 cafe-restaurants allover the world. ViaVia in Yogyakarta is a very lively place with excellent food from both the local kitchen and the world kitchen. It serves also interesting specials of the day and has lots of choice for vegetarians too. On friday nights they have a live jazz band performing.
    In ViaVia there is also an alternative travel agency with lots of special tours and courses you don't find anywhere else. Like bicycle trips, city walks, cooking courses and so on.
    Part of the profit of ViaVia goes to all kinds of socio-cultural projects and they write about it in their newsletters which you can find on www.viaviajogja.com
    I also attended an opening of an exhibition of a young local contemporary artist, because the place also wants to promote young indonesian contemporary culture.

    Favorite Dish: I love the Indian chicken curry and the salads. What i like is that they use organic vegetables where possible and no MSG.

    Dear all, I just would like to share what I know even if its a little bit.
    Dont worry about food in jogjakarta , they have a lot of choices there and the price is incredibly cheap.

    Dont spend too much for hotel. I believe a new budget hotel in Jogjakarta is under preparation...
    One info I've got so far is that they plan to build this very budget hotel on January and will be ready around July or August 2015.

    This budget hotel will only cost you 20 bucks ( 20 US$ ) to 22 bucks , but you will have everything you need for good rest.( Remember, this is not backpackers hotel that let you sleep on bunk beds sharing room with 8 others guests.. You will have you own room, single or twin beds on your own room at its best) :

    -20 to 30 rooms will be built
    -your private room with single bed or twin
    -bed with its best linen
    -LED TV
    -Ergonomic Work Desk With Electrical Outlet & Task Lighting
    -High Speed Wireless Internet
    -Telephones
    -alarm Clock/AM/FM Radio
    -mini bar amenities
    -Cupboard
    -Extra Bed ( optional on request )
    -Air Condition
    -Night lamps
    -Single Queen Bed size or Double / Twin beds
    -Each room with a view
    -Hot and Cold shower
    -Towel
    -Mirror
    -Work Corner Desk
    -Breakfast
    -Laundry with reasonable cost
    -Meeting Room / MICE ( none needs this anyway )
    -Free scheduled Pick Up Twice a day hotel to Town Vice versa.
    -Vending Machine

    The disanvantage is they don't provide :
    *Room service / in room dining
    *Big Swimming pool
    *in House Restaurant ( they only provide you breakfast restaurant )
    *Jogging track
    *Barbeque garden
    *Quick Service laundry (don't expect one hour service)
    *Business Lounge
    *Gym Centre
    *Sauna
    *Valet Parking
    *Satellite Channel (you will get 17 channels only and they are locals )
    *Children Play Ground


    If I am not mistaken, their website is http://www.hotel-murah-jogja.com/
    ( sorry if later on they change the domain name )
    and the name of the hotel would be Lichtervelde Hotel or Roeselare Hotel ( I dunno. I must find out later )Some of hotel staff can speak English , Indonesia, Dutch and Chinese if I am not wrong.

    Thanks
