This is one of my favourite places in the city to eat local food. Slightly higher prices than in a warung but the food is great.

Bu Kris, as it turned out from a taxi driver's info, has several restaurants throughout Surabaya. We tried the one in Jl. Ruko Villa Bukit RO because our driver said it was the best one.

It offers many choices of menu, but the specialty is 'sambal' (traditional chili sauce). It's sambal and fried chicken/beef/shrimp/meat ball. Fried chicken is our favorite!... More

If you want to taste the original sambal and ayam penyet, should visit this resto, fast service and fresh, but not too much convinience as too crowded and usually location in ruko area, which is small space
