Tugu Pahlawan, Surabaya

3.6
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. Although the pro-independence forces suffered defeat and great losses during this conflict, this battle is considered a turning point of the revolution, as it helped galvanize international support for Indonesian independence.

  • The place might be not clean, but the duck sold here is quiet tasty. But if you are not so comfortable queing with the crowds, this place is not for you. They have no parking area, it is just simply at the road side. It is good for a group, but the seating might be your biggest problem. The queueing for the dine in and take away has their own line, so you better not stucked up at the wrong line.
  • The fried duck is quite tasty, the rice is superb, the place is crowded, fast served and not clean. The price for Fried Dada or Fried Paha + Rice is 18.000 IDR, and Fried Paha Super (which the size is bigger) + Rice is 22.000 IDR. They also served other body parts of bebek, they have two optional sambal.
  • Very very nice fried duck with kremes also ati-ampela
  • Good in taste, affordable price, bad in cleanliness
  • For you who want to try surabaya local food you can try this one. But if you can’t handle street food style then don’t go. You have to order first the duck menu here (duck drum stick, duck breast, duck leftover parts, duck heart and innards) it’ll cost you around 2-3 dollars normally depends on your choice. That’s include rice (much like 2 portion of rice), 3 cucumber slices, and two types of sambal. The hot sambal and fried sambal. Then find your seating, as they only have long chairs, would be hard if you go with groups. They’re selling drinks as well, coconut water, orange ice, etc. As I stated above, they somehow slow to handle leftovers from customers, you might find the table in mess. Finding seats here is another problem as they always serve anyone coming. Making the place crowded. But you can try it as people always suggest this place when you’re in Surabaya.
