“Traditional Food in Yogya that u need to try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

one of my favorite food is gudeg, they taste sweet but not that sweet. And when i was there they serve fast and their tea taste so good, combine bitter and sweet in one (can't explain). Gudeg Yu Djum is a "dry gudeg" cause there are 2 type of gudeg in Yogya, the other one is "wet gudeg". How to see the difference...it's easy, first : u can find Dry gudeg mostly at daylight, but when it come to night u will find Wet gudeg, second : wet gudeg is more liquid than dry gudeg. Maybe it's too detail but u can see the differences as i told you before.

“Must try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Gudeg is the most popular food from Yogya - and it is a must try if you want a complete visit in this town.
Its main ingredient is jackfruit which is cooked with coconut milk and many spices for hours. Gudeg is usually served with krecek ( cracker made from cow skin), boiled egg, sweet tofu and tempe bacem (soya cake), chicken and white rice. There are two types of gudeg in Yogya: dry - which is rather sweeter, and gravy - which served with coconute sauce. Gudeg Yu Djum falls into dry cateogry.

It is located in Wijilan area - which is the "center" of gudeg culinary in yogya. It means that many gudeg restaurant line up in this particular street. However, it is said that Gudeg Yu Djum is the oldest one in the area. Wijilan street can be reached easily by becak or taxi, and not too far away from Malioboro Street. A becak ride from Malioboro should cost around 20,000 to 30,000 rupiah. The restaurant usually opens from morning until 10 pm.

One thing for sure, if you visit Gudeg Yu Djum, just come for the food. Don't expect high standard facilities (all guests seated on floor), and much comfort (the place is very small and sometimes very crowded). My suggestion, avoid the weekend and come for late dinner, around 8 or 9 when not too many people come to this restaurant.

The food itself is worth the visit. In my opinion, this is one of the tasties gudeg in Yogya. Try a complete gudeg (but watchout for the spicy 'krecek') for a complete experience. The price is also cheap.

No visit to Yogya is complete without trying gudeg. And guded Yu Djum is very recommended.

“Expensive, too sweet and very rude service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Maybe people said that this is the best gudeg but from my experience it's far from that! They are very very rude! For me it was too sweet comparing to other stalls..

“Exotic & very tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

It used to be that the only place to get this dish out near the airport was at Ibu Tjitro's. Now this place offers it near the intercession of Jalan Solo & the Ring Road. Wow, it's delicious--probably the best gudeg I've ever tasted. I took an American buddy there who'd never heard of gudeg. I feared he might think it was too strange, but he loved it. They've got a great recipe, & the price is cheap!
