I’ve known Depot Hongkong since I was a little kid. Maybe around age 5? Yes, a very small little kid. It was also an unforgettable experience since I was wrong using their chopsticks! I used the bottom part instead, to eat my noodle. Well... a bit embarrassing right?
Beside that unforgettable moments, I also couldn’t forget the “BANG” flavor of Depot Hongkong’s dish. Especially the one with pork meat. Yes, this is a non-halal restaurants, but you still could order chicken or even a plain fried rice here.

 
It’s been a long time since the last time I ate here, that’s why we decided to stop by and enjoy some lunch at Depot Hongkong.
Nasi Goreng Spesial

 
One of my favorite menus here is definitely the fried rice. Not only because of it has a super huge portion, but the taste is like... super yum! I think no words could express the deliciousness of this fried rice. Plus, there are bunch of pork meat inside (cashiew) which makes it even better. I’d recommend you to share this dish with a friend.
Koloke

 
If you also think like me, then fried rice alone will not enough and there must be another savory dish to enjoy with. Then, my choice goes to the Koloke. They’re also famous with their Koloke. But, if you only love chicken fillet (means whole chicken breast without any fat, or even the skin) then you won’t like the Koloke.
However, if your taste also same like me, who loves to eat fat, chicken skin, and other things like that, then you’ll definitely love the Koloke! It’s kind of chewy but delicious. Couldn’t stop eating it!
Service
This place is like a traditional chinese food restaurants, where there’s still no system, and don’t expect a 5 star attitude from the waiter. They’ll only take your order, then cook it. It’s all fine with me, as long as they give a delicious food!
Ambiance

 
I think it needs a make over in some part. Especially the outer restaurant, where it looks like the restaurant is going to fall apart – sorry -. It’s really represent an old traditional Chinese restaurant.
Stay awake for another food journey!

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 20,000

 
Ika 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 13,000

 
Klapertaart 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 18,000

 
If 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.
Service

 
Even 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.
Ambiance

 

 

 
I 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!

Historica : A cozy coffee shop Smile Aug 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Kafe | Halal

Between these last 2 years, there are lots of new coffee shops open in Surabaya. They came up with some cool concept, with a very great ambiance – and also great coffee!

 
There’s one of them who open near my house, which is Historica. This place is not that big, it has an indoor and outdoor places, but I’d prefer the indoor one, because it has airconditioner. You know... Surabaya weather is super hot!

 
Egg Benedict

 
If you haven’t got your dessert, then you could get one here, which is Egg Benedict. Don’t forget to grab some salt and pepper to season your egg benedict, because the flavor still plain (in my opinion).
Pancakes

 
Pancakes with some fruit and sauce is always been my favorite. You’ll have 2 stacks of pancakes, and taste fluffy and easy to chew.
Apple Crumble

 
The tastes of the crumbs are crispy, however the crust is too hard. I think the crust should be lighter and easy to break.
Meat Pie

 
The waiter will re-heat the pie for you before serving. It has a great flavor, and I usually eat this one with some chili sauce! (So Indonesian, I know right?)
Sandwhich

 
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like the sandwhich. It’s super dry and didn’t meet my expectation.
Oreo Blended
I always love to drink blended drink – whatever it is – with Oreo. Everything taste better with oreo, hahaha!
Caramel Blended
If you want to taste “coffee” but not drinking the real one, I think caramel blended could be your choice. Refreshing and still have a sweet taste!
Hot Tea
I love to enjoy my day while zipping my favorite cup of tea and just enjoy the ambiance around Historica.
P.S : You can’t use professional camera inside Historica, because it’s prohibited. If you want to take picture, then use your phone camera. As far as I know and heard from other foodies, you can’t take picture in some of the spot.
Service

 
You need to say your order directly to the cashier, pay them, then your order will be delivered to your table. Overall it’s an okay service and I don’t find any trouble with the service.
Ambiance

 
It’s a great place to have a deep thoughts. Super cozy, I love the interior design. However, I think the chair is just too short – not that comfy. My favorite spot is their bar setting chair.
Stay awake for another food journey!

If you’re strolling around Tunjungan Plaza and you’re searching a good place to have a sit and have finger foods, for example French fries together with friends or even girl / boyfriends, then I think each a cup could be one of your choices. Besides, I think almost all the French fries stall around the food court closed, I don’t know why.

 

 
Not only selling French fries, but they also offer other snacks and drink varieties. It’s super affordable, and you could get a place to sit and relax your foot – before getting ready to shop til die again!
Seasoning Fries – IDR 15,000

 
Seasoning fries means that you won’t get that plain French fries. The French fries itself is already coated with some seasons, so it already has a great flavor. Then, it’ll be mixed again with barbeque, cheese, and other flavors. The final touch is the mayo and chilli sauce! The portion is not big, but enough for a good finger foods.
Roasted Pearl Milk Tea – IDR 22,000

 
A nice drink to pair with French fries is a cold milk tea with bubble! I really love to drink bubble drink since I could hunt their bubble with my straw (if you know what I mean.. haha!) Taste a bit bitter, because this one is roasted. But still taste good and refreshing.
P.S : The price include tax, so you don’t need to pay tax anymore *HORRAY!!
The place of Each a Cup is big, and there are always a customer go to this place, just to have a take away drink or take away French fries. I think their place is also strategic, since it’s located near the food court and in front of them is Cinema XXI. Lots of people passing by around here.
Service

 
A great service indeed. Even though the waiter doesn’t look professional, but she’s super kind and willing to explain each menu to us. My waiter was a short hair, tomboy girl, but she’s very workaholic, I think. She works really fast!
Ambiance
Don’t expect a very great, comfortable seats like sofa, because you won’t get it here. You’ll only sit in a plastic chair, with a very minimum personal space. If you’re having a serious talk with your colleagues or friends, then this place is not the right choice, because everyone could hear you talking.
Stay awake for another food journey!

J.Co Donuts : I'll Munch Anyway! Smile Aug 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Roti & Kue | Donut | Halal

I bet everyone knows J.CO. I mean, who doesn’t know this super famous donuts with a wide range of flavor, plus also wide range of coffee, chocolate, and other types of drink to choose? Plus, that very delicious yoghurt ice cream! I could say that J.CO is one of the people’s favorite donuts!

 
Because it’s been a long time since I ate J.Co and I really want the donuts that time, I finally order 1 Dozen Donuts for sharing.
1 Dozen Donuts - IDR 72,000

 

 
So if you order the donuts, you could choose whatever donuts you’d like, and of course they offer more than 20 donuts flavors for you to choose! Here are my picks (they’re my fave!)
Heaven Berry
If you love blueberry, then this one is the right choice because it’s full of blueberry!
Tiramisu
Barely taste the tiramisu, but they’ve this “bitter” but sweet flavor that could represent the Tiramisu.
Don Mochino
Coffee lovers? Then you must love to eat don mochino with your hot coffee.
Snow White
I think it’s called snow white because it’s coated with white sugar, with some fillings inside.
Avocado Dicaprio
This one is actually not my favorite, because it contains avocado – and I don’t eat Avocado – My friend said this one is great.
Choco Nutzy
Yeah, chocolate and peanut never gone wrong and could become a perfect combination, right?
Berry Spears
Almost the same with the blueberry, this one is also full of it!
Cheesecakelicious
Yes, truly love this one, especially with the cream cheese.
Besides all of these flavors, I also love the original donuts (only coated with white sugar). The J.Co Donuts it somehow crispy but also tender. Delicious and melts in your mouth!
Cronut - IDR 16,000

 

 
Jcronut Cream Cheese
Beside a great donut flavor, you could also order the cronut, which has a crispy texture on the outside. It taste great, but I think you could find better cronuts in Surabaya aside from J.Co.
Service

 
When you go inside the queue, there will be a waiter that will handle your order. The waiter is super nice and doing her job well, because she recommend me to take 1 dozen instead half dozen because the price is cheaper (and also their order will be a lot).
Ambiance

 
(I don’t know for sure) but I think they have a smoking area near the back corner (where you take your drink). However, the place is big so you’ll not be bothered with the smoke. A great place to held a meeting or even catching up with friends.
Stay awake for another food journey!
