A Javanese Market Party

Traveljunkieindonesia.com – We threw a Javanese Market Party in the Gede Market, Surakarta.

Here at Gede market, we spent the afternoon celebrating with friends. This is where the best ice dawet selasih’s in town come each morning, and after that locals and other travel junkies come to see and try what’s fresh in for afternoon sweet dessert.

Here’s party pics:

lim and azis.

black sticky rice, coconut-based pandan porridge (bubur sumsum), rice-flour and sago jelly (cendol), fermented cassava, and basil (selasih) mixed with shaved ice.

A really wonderful, simple, but meaningful day.


Happy Sustainable Travels!
