“I make my own peanut sauce. I rough blend the peanuts at home nowadays even though I used to smash it by hand back in the day,” said Wahyu.

Once the peanut sauce is done, he adds a slew of fresh boiled vegetables such as corn, potatoes, tofu, and bitter gourd to the mix ultimately creating one of the best Jakarta food dishes around.

He admits to regularly purchasing his vegetables every morning to ensure it is fresh and of good quality for diners.

A portion of Pak Wahyu’s Gado Gado salad only costs $1.09 (Rp 16,000) which you can try every Monday to Saturday from 10:30am–4pm at Jalan Cilacap in Jakarta’s Menteng district.

Jalan Cilacap is located directly across from The Hermitage Hotel and all you have to do is find a brown pushcart with the name Gado Gado Pak Wahyu written on it.

Although the 59-year-old is a friendly character and has plenty of stories to share, it is best to converse with him outside of lunch hours when it can get busy for him as a self-standing vendor.

Pak Wahyu’s take on Jakarta food is a hidden gem that should not be missed even though he does not sell his food items on an online app.
