Traditional food is a representation of the culture and identity of certain regions and is a symbol of cultural heritage. Traditional Indonesian food must be preserved and introduced to the community, especially the easy generation as the next generation of the nation as a form of love for the culture that has been passed down from generation to generation. It aims to avoid the influence of food or foreign cuisine that enters Indonesia, which from time to time makes the preservation of traditional Indonesian food increasingly eroded. One form of an effective cultural approach is by introducing to the easy generation and also to the wider community. Therefore the use of technology is very important to maintain the preservation of traditional Indonesian food and convey it to the community, especially the easy generation. This study aims to develop a mobile application for augmented reality as a promotional medium to introduce traditional Indonesian food. Mobile augmented reality in applications built with the Unity3D program is done in different ways in presenting information to other media. This method allows users to view the media as a presentation of their information in the form of 2D and or 3D image modelling by using tracking images through a smartphone device's camera. The mobile augmented reality application that will be developed can provide an interesting and interactive information experience so that it can be fun for every user so that knowledge of traditional Indonesian food can be distributed and channelled so that the preservation of traditional Indonesian food is maintained.
