If the tripper arrive into Surabaya, usually they are looking for Rujak cingur (vegetables or fruit salad with slices of beef snout). The taste of rujak cingur between Surabaya and another r city could be different, cause the level of quality. The people whom do not know rujak cingur before, usually unwilling to eat this food, because of its black colored performance.

Formerly, Surabaya becomes famous cause of bolang-baling bread. But nowadays, that food is no more seems. But in Jakarta, nowadays, you’ll find a kind of bolang-baling bread which sells with cakwe and sauce.
