Feel The Javanese Atmosphere at Angkringan Jogja Denpasar
Gudeg is a traditional Yogyakarta meal that takes a long time to prepare and celebrates sweet flavors with a hint of unique spices. Gudeg is a distinctive dish that is made from jackfruit stewed in a coconut milk sauce with different spices. The warm, delicate jackfruit meat in the gudeg dish combines with unique spices to create a flavor symphony that is difficult to forget.
To enjoy this Yogyakarta signature dish, we don't need to go
to Java. Nowadays, the gudeg menu has spread throughout Indonesia, including
Bali. We can eat gudeg in a stall called angkringan.
Angkringan, with a simple concept but rich in warmth, has
become an inseparable part of Indonesian people's lives. Here are some of the
unique things that make angkringan so special:
Having Simple and Go Green Concept
Angkringan offers a simple and intimate atmosphere, often with tables and chairs made from recycled materials.
Affordable Menu Variety
From coffee to snacks, angkringan serves a variety of menus
at affordable prices, making it an ideal place for all communities.
Understanding Balinese Community:
Angkringan creates a space for people to gather, discuss and
enjoy a meal while feeling the warmth of chit and chat.
Because I missed eating gudeg, I visited an angkringan in
Denpasar. This angkringan is located in the busy Gatot Subroto area. The
building is a bit old, but clean. Inside, there are wooden tables and chairs
arranged in two areas.
Apart from gudeg, Angkringan Jogja offers a menu of typical
Yogyakarta food and drinks. There are various satays, grilled rice, and wedang
uwuh which is a body-warming drink.
Gudeg at Angkringan Jogja has a predominantly sweet taste.
My favorite is still krecek or spicy cowhide, which is soft and tasty. You can
choose several variations of gudeg, such as gudeg complete with egg, gudeg
chicken thighs, or gudeg chicken feet.
Angkringan has become an important part of Indonesian
culinary history. Once considered a place to enjoy coffee and snacks, now
angkringan has developed into a symbol of culture and lifestyle.
Enjoying gudeg in an angkringan in Denpasar makes me feel
like I'm traveling to Yogyakarta. You can try it at Angkringan Jogja, which is
