jgg-new-routes-for-instagram-rev1-04

Indonesia, being a country in South East Asia, is rich in culinary heritage. Spices have always known to be one of its best production, so the foods use a lot of them. Our Food Tour invites you to challenge your taste buds and let your tongue explore the variety of flavour in Indonesian foods.

Within 2 hours, the tour will satisfy your curiosity and craving for different kinds of Indonesian foods. We will savour the delight of West Sumateran food like rendang, and any other kinds of Indonesian curry; after that we will stop at a satay cart to taste its chicken and lamb satay with peanut or sweet soy sauce, in the end you will be on which side? #ChickenSatay or #LambSatay. You will only be one’s side, we guarantee. But not with Durian, the king of fruit waiting at our next stop. With durian, it’s either yay or nay. You can’t be in between. But even when you’re team ‘nay’, at least, with us, you get to try one.

There are some other stops to make if you have big appetite, our notable Gudeg, a typical food from Jogja; or Martabak, Indonesian pancake; is two things you shouldn’t miss. When you feel like you can’t take it anymore, you have to make room for the well-known lamb fried rice. This is a must-try!

Duration: 2-3 hours.
Recommended foods: rendang, chicken & lamb satay, wedang ronde, durian, martabak manis (sweet martabak), nasi goreng kambing, pipiltin chocolate.
Price: IDR100.000/pax (food is not included).
Recommended money to bring: one portion of one type of food is around IDR25.000, so consider how many types of food you are willing to try. Remember, if you’re with a friend or a group, you can always share.
This food tour is only for foreigners because the tour only explores the regular Indonesian food, the food that locals find regularly.
