Eat the city’s favorite meal: gudeg jogja Excellent Jogja Driver +62 819 1553 4286 Yogyakarta has long been known as “gudeg city”, and it behooves you to try this savory dish before you leave. Gudeg jogja is jackfruit meat stewed in coconut milk, spices, and palm sugar, then served with hard-boiled egg, edible cow skin (krecek), and rice. It’s hearty and it keeps well: visitors from elsewhere in Indonesia often order gudeg for take-home, then bring the package all the way to their hometown to share with friends or family back home.
The best gudeg jogja eateries can be found at Sentra Gudeg Wijilan, east of Alun-Alun Utara along Jalan Wijilan near the Kraton. For a more upscale gudeg experience, visit Bu Tjitro (Jalan Janti 330), a cozy family-style restaurant located across from Jogja Expo Center.
