You may know one of the legendary ice cream shop in the old city area of ​​Jakarta called Ragusa. You can feel a similar concept at the Old Dish Tip Top ice cream shop. Carrying a similar style of serving and processing, this ice cream has been the most popular ice cream vendor in Yogya. And until now, even though it's not as popular as it used to be, this shop still survives and has loyal fans.

Formerly the Old Dish Tip Top ice cream shop was located in the Mangkubumi area, just south of the Yogya monument building. But now, this classic colonial-style shop has been moved to the Colombo or Demangan area by using the name Old Dish ice cream.

Despite changing locations with a new name, the ice cream served remains unchanged. They still serve various culinary ice cream with various flavors and toppings with classic Italian-style processing techniques. In colonial times, Italian-style ice cream processing was considered the best technique and produced the most delicious ice cream taste.

Old Dish Tip Top ice cream itself has been standing since 1936 in the original building in the Mangkubumi area. Even now, it has lasted up to 3 generations. And now the last manager, Michael Parahitas, has deliberately moved this location to the Demangan area to get closer to a market that is considered more potential, among young people. Of course, this is not a bad idea, considering that this area is filled with a campus environment.
