I love empal penyet 😍 Its so tasty and hot. The price is good, well its affordable but still i can say that it is a bit expensive. But its worth the wait (which i usually must wait to take my order that is need an extra patient) When u eat, i would say its worth it.

I recommend you to order "paket penyet komplit" it contain chicken, beef, meatballs, tempeh, egg. Sambal is spicy and you can order how much the spiciness.

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.

Environment 1. There is limited parking in front of the shop. 2. The seating in between table is bit close. 3. They have 2nd level. If you come between 7pm-8pm during week day, you might need to stand or sit for waiting your seating. They have variety of food selection and the best is the famous ayam penyet, the sanbal... More
