I heard good things about The Royal Ambarrukmo as one of the most prestigious hotels in Yogyakarta especially their buffets which allows you to get a good selection of Indonesian cuisine!

As with most top hotels ~~ they serve a good range of salads, yogurts and fruit cocktail jellies ~~

They also got a vegetables and fruit juice stand to freshly make some fresh juices for ya ~~

HEY WHERE’S THE INDONESIAN SPECIALTIES ~~ I hear ya scream ~~~ I saved the best for the last ~~ if you want a taste of local flair ~ they serve Yogyakarta’s iconic GUDEG – which is a slow cooked young unripe jack fruit boiled for several hours with palm sugar, and coconut milk. This is usually served with fried or braised chicken as well as other ingredients like…

There’s also nasi uduk ~ which you can take your pick of beef stew ~~ vegetables and braised chicken ~~ served with wild rice ~~~ yum! Maan~~ where else can you try Nasi Uduk, Nasi Gudeg and Poached eggs on toast with omelets ~~ enjoyed with fresh juices and also ~~ Indonesian Jamu ~~ which I’ll get to that ~~

Jamu is an Indonesian style herbal tea and there’s quite a range of them ~~

 

DSCF7296

They say different types of jamu are good for different ailments ~~ so you must give them a shot!
