Yogyakarta is known as a foodie paradise. This city is a great place to go on a culinary vacation because it has so many different kinds of food to try. You can choose from a wide range of foods that taste sweet, salty, savory, soft, or hard, and cost anywhere from cheap to very expensive.

Most food lovers in Yogyakarta look for dishes like Tengkleng made with mutton as the main ingredient. Mutton has a unique flavor that sets it apart from other kinds of meat, especially if the mutton is mixed with spicy spices that can awaken the taste buds.

Yogyakarta is home to Tengkleng Hohah, a delectable mutton dish widely renowned for its flavor. Tengkleng is a mutton-based dish made with coconut milk with a curry-like sharpness but a thinner broth.

Most of the time, the ribs and spine of the goat are used as the primary raw ingredients for making Tengkleng. Some people call Tengkleng bone or Balungan because the main ingredient of this food is bone. Most processed bones still have a little bit of mutton on them.

The name Tengkleng Hohah comes from the sound people make when they eat something spicy. This is what makes the Tengkleng stall, which sells different kinds of spicy food, stand out. This stall is located at Jalan Wonosari KM 7, Baturetno, Banguntapan, Bantul, Yogyakarta. Exactly across the street from the gas station Mantup. When you walk into the stall, you’ll see a tagline that says “Nikmatnya Klamutan Balungan,” which means the delicious Klamutan Balungan.

This stand offers not only Tengkleng but also mutton fried rice, kicik balungan, kicik kai, mutton satay prepared from young goat meat, klathak satay, and several more menu items. There are a variety of refreshments available, including iced tea, orange ice, cucumber ice, wedang uwuh, wedang secang, coffee, and pletok beer.

The Tengkleng Hohah stall is open every day from 9:00 am to 21:00 pm WIB. This menu sets a price range from Rp. 39,000 for a regular portion to around Rp. 179,000 for a large portion of Tengkleng that 4-5 people can eat.

You can make this dish at home with 1 kg of mutton if you are out of town and want to try it. Ground spices are made up of the following ingredients:

-8 cloves of red onion

-4 cloves of garlic

-1 tsp ground ginger, any brand

-2 tsp ground pepper, any brand
