Yippeekiyay! Another healthy restaurant! I’m on fire with this genre lately right? Well, partly because it was an assignment for a certain magazine. Second, just recently a fellow foodie friend of mine went ‘astray’ to become a vegan. I figure, why don’t you start looking for these hidden organic jewels and start a trend by reviewing them? Regardless of these excuses, on any circumstances aside from my religious restrictions, let’s do the foodie adventure, shall we?
Arrived at 2.30 am in the morning, exhausted, and had to proceed with the wedding ceremony the next day, finished around noon, took a nap, attacked by a bed bug, and then came my last evening in Yogyakarta. Even though I got caught in-between fatigue, deadlines, and my latent willpower to scour Yogya, finally I decided to take a ride on a becak with my wife and led us for a really fine dinner. Gudeg Yu Djum was our obvious choice!
During my very short visit back in Yogyakarta, I was hoping that we could have a special treat there before heading back home to Jakarta. And yes, it’s not just a wishful thinking as my in-laws of my in-laws family took us for a breakfast at a seemingly very busy place with its famous Soto Lamongan!
