I spent a year of my childhood in this city, and gudeg is one of my comfort foods. It reminds me of family, of good times. They're complete--savory, salty, spicy, sweet. I am lucky because my partner loves gudeg, too. So, whenever we're in Jogja, we've been known to eat gudeg three times a day. Sometimes four!
Some prefer to eat gudeg with tea or orange juice. Me, I love es tape hijau. Yes, I love green, and yes, I love the taste, sweet and fresh after a hot day in Jogjakarta.
Have you tried gudeg? Which ones are your favorite?
