Set inside a house built in 1959, this classic, unique restaurant is tucked away from the main streets, and features a wide selection of mouth-watering Javanese dishes. Its whimsical interior boasts antiques and traditional decor, including a special room for wayang (shadow puppets). Offering a humble, homely environment, the restaurant gives you complimentary drinks when you walk in, alongside crackers, bananas, and valet parking. The Ayam Setan, or “chicken with devil’s hair” is a must-try, made with a traditional steaming method, ungkep. The local chicken is moist, fresh, and perfect for lovers of spice.
