Small restaurant, but the food tasted good. Any kind of penyet dish served here from iga penyet (ribs), bandeng fish penyet, lidah sapi penyet (ox tongue) and other local dish.

My niece enjoyed her chicken and empal penyet, They were nicely marinated, fried and went well with its sambal. You can ask to have the sambal less spicy made, which is great. Besides that they have rawon, Iga penyet, sayur asam and more or their menu. Varieties of food, sounds like simple dishes served but all are equally delicious. Will... More

for indonesian food, I would prefer eat there. My favorite are "bakwan penyet", "empal suwir penyet penyet", "ayam penyet". All are covered with chilies indonesian sambal, yummy. cant wait got there. Another favorite beverages are "soya milk with ice", "es dawet". If you want to taste the real indonesian sambal, just try "bu Kris".

must try for all travellers to Surabaya. This is the signature 'ayam goreng' of the city. Their sambal is to die for! Price is affordable too. Recommended!

Warung Bu Kris has some outlets especially in east Java. It is a small Indonesian food restaurant. Very crowded at lunch time. I have been one of its loyal customers since 1996. Try 'ayam penyet' as its speciality. This is the place you should visit while in Surabaya.
