  Teh Panas and Jeruk Panas
by bpacker

Definition of Jeruk - 'Jeruk' refers to any citrus fruit that you see in Java. But in eating joints, it simply means freshly squeezed lime juice that is poured into your glass upon your order. This is the third most popular drink in Java, after the sweet tea with ice ('es teh') and hot tea ( teh panas)

Favorite Dish: I love drinking Jeruk in Java. Ok, that's a lousy attempt at alliteration but really, I'm addicted to the freshly squeezed taste of lime. It tastes great whether it's served with ice (Es Jeruk) or with hot water (Jeruk Panas). Equally refreshing is the aromatic Javanese Jasmine Tea. It's always served sweet and the aroma lingers long after you finish your drink.

Where to find this:At any night eatery ( lasehan), warung ( coffee shop) or restoran

Cost: Jeruk Panas cost around 2500Rp ( USD0.25) and Teh Panas 2000Rp(USD0.20). An iced drink will cost USD0.10 more.

Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$10
