It seems in Indonesia and especially in the city of Yogyakarta that street food is literally everywhere you turn. Recently while on a small culinary tour in the city we came outside our first restaurant and found this lady selling her Chicken Satay literally on the restaurants front porch. With her she carried around this tiny little ash filled grill that she heated by waving a bamboo place matt at it along with a basket and tray full of everything she needed to make her simple dish including different sauces, a rice cake type food and even palm leaves to eat it out of. For three pieces it came to around $0.50 and while a bit chewy, tasted pretty great and I didn’t even get sick from it.

What are some of your favourite street foods?
