If you are a big fans of Indonesian sambal especially "Surabaya's style" you must visit this restaurant chains, there are several locations in Surabaya and also out of town. Recommended for tourists. So crowded during lunch

When there for dinner with my fellow colleagues. Typical local dishes, pecelan, but the food was good. What makes them popular is their spicy sambal. 200,000ish rupiah for the 3 of us. We ordered really a lot though.

Probably the best 'penyetan' in Surabaya. The sambal is spicy and delicious, and you can mix some of the food.

Many "penyetan" dishes, from chicken, fish, tempe and tofu, eggplant, etc. Service is pretty fast. If you love spicy food try the penyetan.
