Famous pork satay
This is a no-frills eatery along the 'tourist food street' of Pecenongan and we had no idea that it was so famous. We were lucky to get a rickety table and stools on a Saturday night packed with a largely middle-class clientele. It was a bit of a wait to get served, but the wait/kitchen staff were kind. The pork was sweeter than we expected and a bit tough but the sauce was delicious. The highlight was the pork rib soup with salted vegetables, which was excellent. It was also pricier than we expected, but I guess you pay for fame. As a bonus, we were entertained by a dancing ondel-ondel (Batavian effigy) and a pretty good acapella middle-school choir.

Go for the less usual
For those complaining about the taste of the "straight" pork meat - yes, a bit sweet, probably hasn't got the "burnt" aroma. Your better bet is the intestines and tendons - fantastic texture, taste, aroma. The location is (as with many stalls) on the street side next to an abandoned building (avoid seats near the crumbling concrete wall at the "back" - apparently the odd rat or two will scamper past your feet. As a fresh tourist, I didn't have any tummy issues at this store (satay is probably the safest bet on the street). The pickled onions are great. We also had trotter soup to start with salty pickled greens. Good meal at street side prices. Parking is a pain if you drive in.
