Honestly, if you haven't eaten Serabi Solo, you haven't been to Solo. This region is famous for the glutinous rice pancake that is soft, sweet and crisp at the edges.

Favorite Dish: I struck up a conversation with a local vendor near the Pasaraya and he convinced me to try his sarabi. It was so good I was convinced to buy 2 at once. He wrapped 2 pancakes deftly, in a banana leaf so that I could take it back to the hotel to eat. And when I opened the leaf, it emanated a lovely fragrance. Ah, the pancakes were heavenly soft. The ones flavoured with Nangka ( Jackfruit ) were delicious. Somehow, the soft, sweet flesh of the jackfruit complemented the floury pancake well. The one with choc chip came to a close second.

Comparison: least expensive
