Seriously, the food here is not expensive. They have so many choices for penyetan (their signature dish) from eggs, chicken, beef, fish, vegetables, tahu, or tempe. Spicy level variety from medium to super spicy. If I order my favorite (eggplant and tempe with rice and krupuk plus ice milo) I only need to pay 20k rupiah.

Many varieties of east java food. Spicy and tasty food, try "penyetan" till you get sweat 😄. Affordable and quite nice place. You can eat till you drop.
