Its not the best looking food in town, but definitely one of the tastiest. Service is terrible, but if you're looking for a delicious and cheap lunch, i really recommend this joint. The beef jerky sorta thing is to die for (they call it empal). Definitely must try

Located in the small street of Surabaya,. A normal Indonesian restaurant, it came with "nasi empal" as a special menu. Empal is a beef meet ,. Come with cassava chips, vegetable and you can have additional tripe on it. Beside also available Chinese food like kwetiaw etc

We webn there today and we are 100% satisfied - great food, nice people and a clean coking station - 4 star rating for a low-budget dinner - approx. 2 US $ per person.

Especially the porridge, nasi empal (marinated beef with rice). The location is not my favorit though.
