I don't think their menu are special. So I call it my mom's menu serve ala restaurant. Most of their menu are spicy. Becarefull if you are coming alone,don't pick too much menu since the price is quite expensive. They are perfect for sharing.

It was almost 9PM when we visited Mbah Jingkrak. We were advised by our taxi driver to check whether they're running out of stocks or they can still serve us. Us then decided to give a visit, after we had confirmation by phone. Do take note that restaurant closed on 11PM and during busy day, they may running out of... More

With dishes like SAMBAL IBLIS which translates to the Devil's chilli paste I bet those who sees the name will immediately know that the dish is pretty darn hot and spicy. Overall i like the food and the ambience, it is quite a cosy place to eat and spend time with... More

Found this place on an evening in June, taxi driver had a hard time finding it. It's a buffet style restaurant and you can choose whatever you like, depending on what you want to pay of course. Don't sit down in the room next to the buffet, but keep on walking. What you'll find is a bizarre but delightful terrace,... More
