We start the day with serabi- a sweet treat made from rice flour and coconut milk. At Mrs Lidya’s Serabi Notosuman dozens of small pans are set up in which to make this popular snack. Serabi are sold in packs of ten and you can opt for the original or chocolate variety. The chocolate come sprinkled with chocolate sprinkles which melt into the gooey coconut centre. Delicate and crispy on the outer edges and warm, thick and gluggy on the inside- serabi are a must eat if you have a sweet tooth!

Our next stop is for one of Indonesia’s most popular meals or snacks- bakso! Bakso or meatballs are usually served in a soup together with noodles, some vegetables and fried shallots. The beef meatballs are springy and slightly chewy and its said that bakso Solo has bigger meatballs than ones you might find elsewhere.

We then head to a quirky restaurant which offers selat Solo a dish unique to Solo and made up of beef steak and vegetables in a sweet gravy. It’s a classic fusion dish with Javanese and European influences.

In the evening vendors who sell sate, fried noodles and fried rice start plying their trade. We eat smoky chicken sate at Sate Ayam Pak Banjir Kampung Baru where a simple grill is set up right on the footpath and swathes of smoke stream onto the road. We follow the sate up with Javanese fried noodles and fried rice from President Jokowi’s favourite stall- simple, honest food cooked well!
