I had wanted to go to lunch to a local place that specialized in Brongkos - beef simmered in coconut milk and spices which was close to the southern exit of the Kraton, but unfortunately, there were tons of aggressive becak drivers hanging out at the exit harassing people into taking rides, or wanting to take them to a special "batik gallery" which is really an overpriced batik shop where they get a commission.  Rather than deal with that, we left out of the main entrance, and used Google maps to make our way to the restaurant...  a funny thing Google likes to do is take us through places I wasn't quite sure we were supposed to be!

While this is techincally a street (for motorbikes and walking only) there were times I felt like I was walking through people's yards...

Finally, we made it there...

This was really tasty - slightly spicy, with spices like star anise and clove.... served with a big shrimp chip.... also, really cheap - about a dollar a portion.  To drink, orange juice on ice...
