Food's good, especially the Nasi Empal. The seasoned vegetables are extremely nice, and the portion is huge. The restaurant itself is inside a small alley, and very easy to miss, but it's worth it.

The best nasi empal (seasoning meat with rice, vegetable and sweet chips) I've ever eaten. It's not easy to find this place since it's in a narrow alley. It's on the left alley on jalan pecindilan

Placed inside an alley, easily to be missed from main road. The foods are good, but quite crampy. Parking space also limited.

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

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