Culinary in this solo is quite unique. Gudeg Ceker Bu Kasno opens early in the morning. In fact, when not in the month of Ramadan.
Gudeg Ceker Bu Kasno is located on Jalan Monginsidi 43, Banjarsari, Solo, Central Java. This gudeg with claws is located in the Margoyudan area, so it is not uncommon for this gudeg to be called gudeg Ceker Margoyudan.

The combination of the slightly sweet and savory opor sauce and fried chili sauce add to the complete taste on the tongue. Not only that, the texture of the crackle or beef skin in the fried chili is soft and not sticky.
Processed claws are also tender and perfectly cooked. These claws do not need to bother biting because the meat on the chicken feet is easily peeled off by itself due to its doneness.
Wiranto (53), one of Mrs. Kasno’s sons, said that Mrs. Kasno’s gudeg claws started with her grandmother’s gudeg business, namely Mrs. Karto.
“Initially from 1951 Mbah Karto, first opened at 05.00-07.00 WIB, then, turning to Mrs. Kasno in the 1970s, it was proposed to be at 03.00-07.00 WIB, and before fasting went forward again to 01.30-07.00 until now,” said Wiranto when met detik.com at his shop last weekend.

Wiranto said the initiative to add the claw menu started from his mother in the 1970s. At that time, the gudeg menu that was sold was still in the form of fried chili gudeg, with additional chicken, eggs, or tofu.
“At that time a neighbor opened the slaughter of chicken, usually the claws and the head were thrown away. The mother asked for the claws and processed them into one of the menus,” he said.
He said that his mother’s gudeg preparations received a positive response from buyers. The gudeg claw menu has also become a boom and is known as one of the most sought-after culinary delights in Solo.

Then if you add a side dish of tofu, it becomes Rp. 13 thousand, while if you add a side dish of eggs, it becomes Rp. 15 thousand.
