If you are looking for a local specialty, this eatery is a must visit. Pallu basa is a traditional Makassar-style soup. The broth is thick and rich with flavor, as it's mixed with a spiced-grated coconut (serundeng). You can choose from a wide range of...selection: beef cheek, liver, meat, and other offal. For the ultimate bombshell, you can opt to add your pallu basa with an egg-yolk (it's called "alas" in the local language). A raw egg-yolk will be added to the hot broth, so it will be half-cooked and thickened up the broth even more. The service is generally quick, and the price is affordable.More

Pallu basa is one of the traditional foods in Makassar. The famous one is Pallu basa Serigala (located near pallubasa onta). I’ve tasted both and the taste is just the same (in my opinion). The soup has coconut taste, tasty but not my favorite. but...they gave the big chunks of meatMore

People often say by Palbas (it refer to Pallu Basa). This Palbas isn't use camel (onta) as main dishes of the palbas. Since this restaurant is located in Jalan Onta, so it's called by Pallu Basa Onta.

Initially we went to Pallubasa Serigala located at Serigala street but it was so packed that our driver drove us to the next restaurant serving the same dish, which is this one. Pallubasa Onta has a bigger space and looked more comfortable than the previous...restaurant we stopped by at. A lot of locals eat here. Service is very quick and they'll you if you want it with egg or not. I ordered my soup with egg and I was surprised to find that the egg was raw, but I ate it anyway. Taste is kind of similar to Coto Makassar but meatier. After adding a bit of salt, sambal and lime it tasted wayyy better. Portion is a bit small which is normal for this particular soup dish but it's still reasonable for the price.More

Been here for the first time. Dining room was huge but not to clean. It was a habit from customer and stewardwss to dispose tissue on the floor. Pallubasa meat a little bit hard, the soup not to spicy. I like Pallubasa Serigala compare Pallubasa...Onta.More

First time tried Pallu Basa here and I was hooked. The portion may a bit small for some people, but for me that's enough. For next visit I'll try the Serigala one.

The broth was thick, and it was more spicy than other Pallu Basa. I like it more than any other Pallu Basa restaurant

I love the Pallu Basa although my friend didn't really like it. It has similar base to Coto but it has fried shredded coconut meat which makes the Pallu Basa has different taste, more tastier than Coto. The place is spacious and airy. The service...is fast Would definitely go backMore
