Indonesia Eats: Es Dawet Kampung Kali, Semarang

Es Dawet (Iced Dawet) is a unique dessert which originated from a small town in Java Island called Jepara. It then spread into the neighboring big cities like Semarang and Surabaya, and eventually Jakarta. However, the local taste of Iced Dawet in Semarang is somewhat different from the one sold in Jakarta. In particular, the Kampung Kali Iced Dawet which is just sold on a cart but yet, managed to attract a queue of customers everyday.

This taste so refreshing on a hot day. Even though I don't really like eating durians (and hence, more portion for my mum), I still enjoy eating the iced dawet. And just like that, this dessert can be considered as a good local street food of Semarang city.
