Yogyakarta’s Local Snacks and Beverages That You Must Try

 

Like any other places, Yogyakarta has a lot of unique local snacks and beverages. If you are going to visit Yogyakarta, make sure to try these local snacks and drinks that you can find in Yogyakarta.

Jadah Tempe: Chewy Javanese Rice Cake

This dish is quite simple looking. A piece of white and chewy rice cake served with a piece of tempeh bacem [sweet soy cake]. The chewy texture is generated from glutinous rice. The texture is like mochi; chewy and tacky, but it isn’t sweet, and the delicious fragrance comes from coconut milk. Since it is made from rice, eating just a few pieces of the dish is going to be sufficient. Jadah Tempe is sold anywhere in Jogja, starting from Pasar (traditional Indonesian market) to food stalls in every corner of the city.

Botok Mandingan

Do not miss out with this Javanese dish known as Botok Mandingan. The small beans are blended with anchovies and then wrapped in banana leaves before they are steamed. The snack is eaten with rice, and like Jadah Tempeh, it can be found in Pasar. It may look gross upon first sight once, but the mixture of anchovies and coconut, mandingan and oriental spices is actually delicious.

Kopi Menoreh (Java Coffee)

Java coffee from Menoreh Hill is created from one bean coffee pods. The Kedai Kopi Menoreh Pak Rohmat coffee shop is deep in the rainforest, so it may be best to find a good driver to take you there. Not only you can enjoy a Javanese coffee there, but the beautiful scenery there is also excellent for photos.

Es Buah: Fresh fruit with shaved ice

This refreshing and delicious dessert is ideal for hot days in Yogyakarta. It captured the heart of everyone who tasted it. It is essentially a bowl of crushed ice with pieces of fruit inside, and all tastefully presented.  The dessert has been around since the 1970s.
