There's nothing better than a home cooked meal. Do you notice how people always say that their mom/grandma make the best version of a particular dish? Well... the food served in this restaurant is the same like the one that you can find at local homes, cooked by someone's mom. This place is known for their spicy dishes but they also serves non-spicy dishes for those of you who can't stand the heat. But let me tell you, if you're opted the non-spicy food, you're missing something really really good! The Devil's sambal is a must-ordered for me whenever I was there. Also their tempe mendoan (a deep fried sor bean cake covered in tasty batter). the other dishes are as good as the next ones.
Not only the food is excellent, the ambiance of the restaurant is also inccredible. Dominated by vintage javanese artifact and decor, Mbah Jingkrak exudes a warm inviting yet unique atmosphere.
It is best to come here at night as the lights makes the decor look better and also because they have live javanese traditional music to accompany your meal.
