good place for people who like spicy food. This is special Indonesian food in East of Java. Nice place to go for lunch with friends and family .

Bu Kris offers good "street food" in a clean friendly environment. It's very popular with the locals. You may have to wait for a table at busy times bit the tables turn over quickly. Great variety and value. Two of us ate our fill for under $6 Aus.

My favourite restaurant for "penyetan".. Empal and bakwan penyet is a must for me.. Reasonably price, nice staff (i often go to Manyar Kertoarjo branch).. It can get very crowded during lunch hour, so be ready to stand while waiting..

Delicious deep fried proteins served with steamed rice, raw straw bean, cucumber, cabbage, and super spicy chili sauce called "sambal terasi". If you arent used to spicy food asked extra mild sambal. Getting out from the restaurant, people can actually smell the "sambal terasi" from you. Clean yourself well. It worth the visit though.

Bey good chicken with its best sambal teri. Prepare yourself to shower after meal as the air inside pretty smelly and stick to you afterward. Wish they have better exhaust system.
