Gudeg Pituji is one of the MSMEs in the food sector located in Sampangan Village, precisely on Menoreh Raya Street Number 71 Sampangan. The origin of the name Gudeg Pituji is the number “pitu siji” which means seven one in Javanese, it is the number of the house used to run the business. Mr. Ramelan and his wife, as the owners of the Gudeg Pituji MSMEs, started their business because of the many requests for gudeg to be cooked for events or celebrations. The dish, which is served in one serving of Gudeg Pituji, contains rice, young jackfruit vegetables as gudeg, and is served with thick coconut milk (areh), free-range chicken, egg, tempeh, tofu and krecek fried sauce.
