A trip to Solo is not complete if we do not try one of the best food in this town: Nasi Liwet Solo. This dish is actually very simple made of rice, vegetables, and Lauk Pauk (side dishes). But the taste isn’t as simple as it looks. Its very yummy, so everyone will become addicted after eating. NasiLiwet is more tasty than common rice because the rice is cooked with coconut milk. It is served with pumpkins and a lot of choice of side dishes such as chicken, egg, uritan or kumut (tasty thick coconut milk). Nasi Liwet is usually served in a banana leaf forming a triangle (dipincuk). Want to try?
