Who knows that Surabaya also has this old style café, located inside a hospital in Darmo Area? Honestly, I also don’t know about this Darmo Heerlijk café until one day I heard a radio channel, announcing this café plus having an interview with the owner. It’s been a long time, like about 2 years ago, and I just had the time to visit this café when visiting my friends inside the hospital.As you can predict from the name, this café is trying to bring back old memories, especially back then from the Dutch era. We could also see that through the walls that it has all the memories from the before 90s.Nasi Goreng Ika – IDR 20,000Ika here means ikan asin. The portion is enough for 1 people, and it’s served with some “Krupuk”, pickles, tomato and cucumber. Taste just fine, nothing wrong with it, but it doesn’t fully satisfy my appetite.Klapertaart – IDR 13,000Klapertaart is one of my favorite Dutch snack / dessert. The ones that Heerlijk has is okay, but the taste should be stronger than that.Milkshake Vanilla – IDR 18,000If you have doubt what to order, then order milkshake. Because the taste will be really great and super milky! It’s refreshing – even though doesn’t really match with the fried rice.I think this place is great if you happened to visit your friends / families in the hospital (just like me) or if you’re curious enough to know a bit of Indonesia history.ServiceEven though there aren’t many people there, but the waiter is not that attentive. The service kinda slow, and we need to approach the cashier or the front reception to ask around before they’re going to our table.AmbianceI expect it will be having a nice ambiance, with a proper lights and more oldies stuffs, but no, they don’t have anything like that. However, on the bright side, you could know just a glance about the Dutch Era and the old Indonesia building through the pictures there.I also love to see the old money – I have some at home, too! – and it’s really unique, something that I’ve never seen before. The owner must have think the concept really deep. However, I still think this small, unique café needs some more touch to become better.Stay awake for another food journey!--Megan FaustineInstagram & Twitter : @meganfaustineBlog : borntobite.blogspot.com continue reading
