1. Gudeg Mbah Lindu
Not only is gudeg considered the best Yogyakarta food, but Mbah Lindu was one of Yogyakarta’s oldest gudeg vendor until her death on July 12, 2020 at the ripe age of 100. Her daughter Ratiyah has stepped up as her successor.
Her version of this Yogyakarta street food has become so famous that it was featured in the Netflix documentary series “Street Food: Asia” in 2019 further catapulting her culinary stardom.
Located at Jalan Sosrowijayan and directly in front of the Grage Ramayana Hotel or around 300 meters from the historic Malioboro Street, you can order a plate of the Indonesian Jackfruit Stew every day from 5am-10am.
