If you want this food u better take it home. Because the taste is very good but they have a bad place. Poor enviroment too. For now i prefer using Gojek-Gofood if i want this food delivered to my place. So much easier.

The location is the worst. Its not clean. It does not smell good. To a tourist this may seem unappealing. But man. The nasi empal here is THE BEST IN THE WORLD. I am not exagerating. I tried all the nasi empals in Indonesia. But this and Depot Ibu Indra is the best in Indonesia. Cheers.

Worth every rupiah, food is good, price oke, the place a little bit difficult to find. But after eating, everything is worth it. Porridge also good.

The empal is the best in surabaya. The chicken noodle and chicken porridge were nice also. This place is quite hidden and hard to find by first newcomer. Hard to find the parking lot during weekend ( should park infront of beauty supplier shop). Its open only from morning to evening (sadly)

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

This time, I would like to share my breakfast experience in this particular establishment this past weekend. As usual, I went there with my wife to visit one of our favorite places for local dishes. It was not too hard to find although it was located in one of a small alleys in Jalan Pengampon. Once you hit the intersection... More
