Bu Ageng

Indonesian in Yogyakarta

Traditional Javanese dishes including eyem penggeng (chicken simmered in spiced coconut cream) are served in this tasteful interior space with wood columns and a bamboo-mat ceiling, twirling with fans. Favourites include beef tongue, smoked fish, beef stewed in coconut milk and durian bread pudding.The kampung chicken is truly free-range, lean, flavourful, slightly al dente and not that meaty. Bone-sucking required!
