The fat satay seller on the corner of Beringhardjo market. She will warmed the sweet seasoned satay using the carcoal based on order and definitely the best way to eat this one is while its HOT.

Yogyakarta ~ the Guardian

Yogyakarta ~ the Guardian

I saw this statue first at the Yogyakarta airport on my last visit on May, but when I come back this October, this statue is standing freely in the most crowded intersection which known as the zero kilometres meeting point. From the intersection you can go to Sultan Palace, Malioboro, president palace, Beringhardjo market, tasting traditional food, educational garden for children or watching an old building from Dutch colonialism, Vrederburg castle, or just visit the Batik monument right next to the guardian.

Just let me know if you ever planned to visit Yogyakarta 🙂

You can eat pecel along with the seasoned fried tofu, tempe and bakwan (fried vegies mixed with flour & egg) with 10,000 -15,000 rupiah which equal to 1-2 USD you can feed your dragon already 🙂
