Sweet Javanese Jasmine tea in a bottle. It's one of Indonesia's best loved drink next to the fruit drink by the same brand (Sosro). Available at every warung ( coffee shop ) and drink vendor ( kaki lima ) .

Favorite Dish: Since portable water is rather questionable over here, your only alternative is to buy bottled mineral water from a vendor. Since Evian or Perrier is not commonly sold here, go for the local "AQUA" brand. It's about 3000Rp (USD0.30) per 500ml. Well, other than water, there's also a popular favourite that also comes in a bottle - Sosro Teh Botol ( teh=tea, botol=bottle). Give it a try if you love sweet jasmine tea. I took a sip of this after a particularly hot day at the kraton and was instantly resfreshed. A bottle cost the same as a bottle of mineral water. The fruit tea is equally refreshing but i prefer the jasmine tea.
