I'm so really impressed with kuah rawon here. I don't know what's the right word for 'kuah' in English.

During hot day, make sure you order sayur asam. A dish of water spinach, sweet corn, peanuts and sour reddish soup ready to freshen you up. Don't forget tempe goreng or tahu goreng and Javanese recipe fried chicken. Get ready being amazed by their tasty menu!

You can eat many kinds of deep fried foods, such as chicken, tempe, tahu, bakso, eggs, etc. with sambals. It is like a home cooking foods here. Overall, it is hard to say NOT GOOD to the foods. Price is also not expensive

Bu Kris has the good sambal with various additional topping like meat ball, fried chicken, tofu, tempe, etc. You can request the level of sambal. They also have many branch in Surabaya and Jakarta. And other menu beside sambal like Chicken Soup Dont miss it if you come to Surabaya.

For me, it is good to spend your time enjoying sambal Bu Kris but too little sambal to satisfy your desire about sambal. More variant of sambals would be better
