Review: Omah Dhuwur, Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia

Looking for a fancier restaurant for an evening meal where you can get a little dressed up and enjoy the attentive service of a more fine dining experience?  Then take a short taxi ride over to Omah Dhuwur (at HS Silver) and relax and take in the delicious food and tranquil surroundings.

The prices here are higher than your average backpacker meal, but they really are reasonable for what you get.  The menu is succinct and neat which is sometimes refreshingly easy after being in places with pages and pages of choice!  However, its still a tough call as there are some tempting contenders.  We settled for chicken and thiwul and a steak which were both beautifully presented.

The meat on both plates was really exceptional – especially the chicken and gorgous sauce it came with.  However, both of us were not huge fans of the cassava…it is a very distinct flavour and one I imagine produces love or hate emotions!  Luckily there was so much else going on with the dishes that we were not left hungry though…the vegetables were delicious the balance of everything on the plate worked perfectly.
