Visit Tugu Pahlawan to pay homage to the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Surabaya, the heaviest single battle of the Indonesian National Revolution. See the tall white column, arches, and statues, and visit the onsite museum to learn the history of the battle.

  • Not recommended place, the food was not very good or very bad, its not really cheap, and its not very clean if i said
  • I've got a bad experience here, the sambal is too salty. But the fried duck is tasty. The place here is always very crowded.
  • This is definitely a place to come at night when you have an empty stomach.
  • Although the place is dirty, always full, and we need to queue to get our food and table, I love their fried duck. The duck is tender, served with very spicy sambal. Yumm!
  • Its good traditional food... very tasty and yummy for the duck.. but the place was very dirty
