Fortunately this place near in my boarding house so i ofter get my lunch here. I should say the food is nice and very cheap price with big portion. My favorite is mixed rice with tahu bali, sate puyuh, jeroan and rawon soup.

No, This illegal can't be our univerity student favorite to lunch and hang out while break before class. How come? The food is good with the reasonable price too, the ambience is so bad, too many smokers and it's so damn hot! Wow! I think it's too absurd this small canteen is listed here hehehehehe

This is the cheapest food I ever bought outside, especially because the location is near to my university. The Food is not to bad, just an ordinary home made local food.
