It's always a best choice of place when you visited Pandaan Area for a great lunch. Special tips for a non-local. Ensure you ask what is the content of the menu, lesson learned from my side; bakwan is not a 'bakwan toge/ jagung' as you know in Jakarta. Here, bakwan means meatball :)

they provide a good food such as traditional fried chicken, traditional beef floss, and local tofu or "tempeh".
you can also select your level of spice.. how 'hot' you want...
they can put more chili or just normal chili.. for them who don't like chili, it is still delicious!

I ordered the big complete set so that I can try every types of their famous "penyet". It was a set of half chicken breast, meatball, soy bean curd, shreded beef meat, and pan fried egg. The whole set were put in onrecommend size "cobekan (some kind of thick plate made out of stone originally used to mashed chillies" with traditional "sambal terasi (indonesian traditional chilli sauce)" covering the upper layer of the "cobekan".

The "sambal terasi" comes with varieties of spiciness level. I ordered the medium level and the spiciness was managable for me considering I'm not a big fan of spicy food. The taste of the "sambal terasi" are the one that makes the food taste awesome. It taste very sharp at first, but mixed it with the other content then you'll get to experience the designed taste.

The chicken breast fried perfectly with traditional seasoning , it wasn't too crispy so that It wasn't eliminate the original fried chicken taste. The shreded beef meat was a bit too dry for me, although it was still taste good. The pan fried egg taste like home cook and it was good, the thickness is perfect. The meatball called "bakwan" is one of the best part of the overall ingredients. You should just taste it to know it...

As the side dish I also ordered "sayur asem" it was sone sort of vegetable soup with a sour taste, it was a perfect mix, add some freshness to the "penyet" as you sip the soup while eating the "penyet".

I strongly recommend this restaurant if you ever visited surabaya. But remember that each location have their plus minus such as crowded space and lack of parking space
