We start the day at Pasar Gede, the oldest traditional market in Solo. We’re here to eat a couple of dishes- the first being lenjongan, the collective term for sweets and snacks made from tapioca flour and rice flour. A portion comes wrapped inside a banana leaf and drizzled with palm sugar and sprinkled with desiccated coconut. Chewy, sticky and sweet- this traditional food is a must eat when in Solo. Our next snack is es dawet- a refreshing mix of coconut milk, cendol, ice and palm sugar syrup and a popular snack or drink all over Indonesia. The version in Solo ups the ante by adding tape (fermented glutinous rice), basil seeds and black sticky rice to the already addictive concoction.

Our next stop is for one of Solo's most popular meals: tengkleng. A mash up of goat ribs, bones and offal served in a watery, spice filled stew over rice. If you visit this stall, be prepared to wait as its fans are many and service moves at a leisurely pace. We wait for over an hour for one of the last portions and it is worth it. The broth is light but full of fragrant spices and the generous ladleful soaks into the rice. Sucking the bone marrow out of the bones and slurping up spoonfuls of rice and broth whilst perched on a plastic stool in the heat is a quintessential Solo experience.

Come evening time we head to Nasi Liwet Bu Sarmi to eat Nasi Liwet. Rice is cooked in coconut milk and chicken broth and served with poached chicken and tender slices of chayote. Conveniently located next-door is Susu Murni Shi Jack. A popular evening pastime in Solo is to gather with friends and drink fresh hot milk and snack. We do like the locals do and order glasses of creamy, fresh milk flavoured with honey, the other with chocolate. Stick with the more natural flavours we reckon as they’re less sweet.
