This one-of-a-kind tour begins at 7:30 am at the fringes of a traditional market. The tour weaves its way through the market stopping at 8 hand-picked vendors to sample an array of morning-time delicacies. You will interact with local vendors, from local food stalls that are instagram hits to women who specialize in making warm & homey traditional porridge! All the while you will get context from your guide about the food and answer any burning questions you might have during the tour. This culinary adventure is filled with surprises and is sure to wake and please your taste buds. A hearty breakfast beckons and for those who need their dose of cuppa in the morning, we have a special brew awaiting you too!
I have been a professional certified guide in the beautiful town of Yogyakarta for the last 9 years and an avid foodie for much longer. My favorite type of tours are the ones that involve food where my two biggest passion of sharing Javanese culture with the world & of food come together! I started the first street food tour in Yogyakarta and run tours on a daily basis with partnerships with hotels/hostels/guesthouses and also on multiple Online Travel Agents such as Expedia and Backstreet Academy. I was also approached by Netflix for their latest series 'Streetfood' where Yogyakarta is featured as one of their episodes. I was a 'fixer' of sorts for the crew.
The tour begins outside a traditional market in downtown Jogja. Traditional light snacks such as coconut pancake, fried Chinese bread, Jajanan Pasar (assorted bite-sized snacks), to semi-heavy dishes like traditional porridge and chicken soup will be featured in the tour. The tour will also be accompanied with a brief history of the city and ends at Malioboro Street. This has been remarked by most guests as a good introductory tour of Yogyakarta
Additional Notes: - The tour can be customized for vegetarian, vegan & pescatarian diets. - Guests are expected to meet either myself, Vitasari, as the main host or my two other teammates named Anisa and Echa.
