    Soto dan Sop Cak Nur: Don't let your cholesterol down ;)

    by ukirsari Updated May 20, 2004

    Well, my good friend Yung Yung is absolutely "gila makan" or simply said as Great-Big-Eater. He knows anywhere good place to have meals. And it's becomes a special meal tour everytime I go to Jogja. And the latest in his map is Soto and Sop Cak Nur. High cholesterol [euhhh, I am sorry, but it's delicious] soup [light without coconut milk or with coconut milk called soto] with diced meat plus assortment that we can mention like liver ... plus plus plus.
    But not to be missed is the resto itself: in the heart of padi field. I like the scenery.

    Favorite Dish: Of course Sop Cak Nur. Yung Yung always says, " Don't let you get low cholesterol when away from home!!!" [and make me plus Buddy Kodjang 'die'].

    KEPPEL: sweet-smelling fruit...

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not a restaurant but a fruit that you have to try.
    We had a guided tour in 'Taman Sari' , the water castle ,
    where the concubines of the sultan took a bath ,
    way back in history...

    Here you can find a tree with little brown fruit growing
    on the trunk.

    He called it 'keppel' and explained that the women
    ate those to make them smell better when they
    where sweating...

    I think I ate those in a restaurant and they tasted like
    sweet potatoes. Really soft.

    MARTABAK.: Martabak manis komplit and martabak menara...

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 11, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ok , I told you on my Jakarta page that this is
    my absolute favorite. We didn't feel like searching for a restaurant so we ordered
    'martabak manis komplit' - a sweet pancake with sugar , cheddar cheese , concentrated milk , nuts and chocolats....a lot of dutch butter.

    But also a 'Martabak menara' ...more like a loempia filled with eggs and vegetables and fried in oil.

    Djeezes , for two persons that is a whole lot of food ...

    Both dishes are about 1 Euro.

    Favorite Dish: It's not a restaurant , it's a warung...a street food car...

    Great value for money , really tidy , and you can watch every step in the kitchen...

    Superman;: A tip from the book....

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 11, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant was a tip in our touristical guide ,
    so we gave it a shot...
    It is in an alley in a popular backpackers area , called sorso.
    The place to eat looks rather nice and it is
    far from the traffic (read smells)

    Favorite Dish: I went to wash my hands after I've ordered ,
    and I saw the kitchen...(yakkes)

    I must admit that my
    pancake with tropical fruit and icecream
    (they just take a frisco for the ice)
    Didn't taste as good anymore just because of that.

    I didn't liked the audience either.
    (It's ok to be alternative , but please , does that mean you can't use shampoo)
    Also , Indonesian food is so nice , why make such an international card.

    Well the choise is up to you...

    My tip , go to a warung , at least you can see the food and see it gets prepared , or go to a shopping center , the food court. An excellent alternative.

    Pancake with fresh fruit..

    ES CAMPUR.: I had to try it!

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 10, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    'ES CAMPUR' the name was standing there so peacefully between ,
    juice alpukat , juice appel , juice pisang....
    I had to try it...

    What it is?
    - es campur is a mix of little pieces of jelly ,
    in a lot of colors. These pieces of jelly got no or little taste. They swimm in a coupe of water with a pink really sweet grenadine-like
    sirop , and is topped with crushed ice...

    Not bad , but also not my favourite-
    -just try it ones - 5000 Ir - 0,50 eurocent-

    gudeg....: The local speciality...

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The local speciality is named 'gudeg'.
    You can eat 'ayam gudeg' - chicken gudeg
    or 'gudeg komplit'...

    I suggest you stick with the chicken.
    Gudeg is a way of cooking. The meat is cooked in a sweat mix with coconut in it.
    A refined taste is the result. Really nice..

    Surpice surprice , the komplit dish is also with dried and cooked cow skin and intestines. yakkes.

    Mama's: The best Bhami Goreng you'll ever have

    by paradisedreamer Updated Aug 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is really a street cafe, extremely basic - plastic tables and chairs with a bunch of forks in a glass on the table. The food however is excellent. The kitchen is minute and part of the restaurant so you can see it being cooked. It is so cheap it is negligible. They also do excellent fruit shakes.

    Favorite Dish: Bhami Goreng and the fruit shakes (about £1.20 in total for 2 people)

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a nice Cafè and restaurant not too close to the centre, with some original paintings and posters on its walla where you can meet other fellow travellers while drinking or eating something

    Favorite Dish: I must admitt club sandwiches, even because I was used to come here before lunch, so I just ate some snacks.

    Any hawkers in Jogja: Grilled chicken or catfish

    by ukirsari Updated Mar 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beside the famous 'Gudeg' --number one's traditional food from Jogja, you can try to eat ayam bakar (grilled chicken) or lele bakar (grilled catfish). They're so yummy. Half fried then grilled 'till well-done. Served hot with sweet soy-sauce, chili and steamed rice plus fresh vegetables. Hmm hmmm ;)
    One of my fave pedestrian tent which has these delicious food is situated at Lingkar Luar (outer ring road) of Monali (Monumen Jogja Kembali), nearby economic faculty of Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII).

    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
    -alarm Clock/AM/FM Radio
    -mini bar amenities
    -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
    -Work Corner Desk
    -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
    *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.
