One of the most legendary Kwetiau restaurant in Surabaya. No matter what the time is, in the morning, afternoon, evening, or even late of night until their closing time at 11 p.m, Kwetiau Apeng is always crowded with people. Every Surabayanese must know about this legendary place.

 
Believe it or not, this is my very first time to go and try Kwetiau Apeng. My father is a person who doesn’t like to queue, that’s why we never eat here. Yeah, finally I tried this restaurant *Thanks to my relatives that come to Surabaya*.
When I arrived, I pick the queue number, and it’s number 30 – now is still number 18 – crazy right? To my surprise, the queue is not that long, and the customers eat really fast.
Kwetiau Siram Ayam – IDR 41,000

 
The most famous menu here in Kwetiau Apeng is their Kwetiau Siram. You could order this one without MSG, but the taste is a bit plain then the usual. Taste great, there are prawns inside, and really warm. I love to eat this with soy sauce & chopped chilies.
Kwetiau Goreng Ayam – IDR 38,000

 
I don’t know why, but I prefer the fried kwetiau instead the kwetiau siram. For me, this is more flavorful. Even though it said kwetiau goreng ayam, but you could find seafood inside like prawns. The portion is big enough to share with 2 person.
Nasi Goreng – IDR 38,000

 
Taste a bit plain – seriously – and not recommended. Only the lapchiong taste great. You need to eat this one with chili sauce to get more flavor.
Service

 

 
The service is super fast but the waiter is not friendly at all. She just want to take your order as fast as possible without even explaining anything. Even though the place is crowded, I think it’s better if the waiter is friendlier than this.
Ambiance
It’s super crowded and it’s a true family restaurant. If you’re super starving or want to enjoy your time while eating, then this is not the place. The sitting area is not that spacious, the table arrangements are only fit for 5 – 6 people.

Tristar is one of the most affordable, traditional, old - style Chinese restaurant in Surabaya and has a very delicious food. I love to eat at Tristar, and listen to the Chinese song sang by the singer from Tristar. There are lots of old Chinese people went here to have dinner together, or even grab a drink.

 
Package for 10 person –IDR 1 Mio ++
Yes, because I just graduated and want to celebrate my graduation day, I order a package menu that consist of 6 main meal, 1 dessert, and free flow Soft Drink. With 1 million ++ rupiah for the price, and remember this is for 10 person, don’t you also agree it’s super affordable?
Sup Asparagus

 
For the opening, we order Sup Asparagus. It also consists of crab, which makes it even tastier. I usually eat sup asparagus with “Cabe rawit and kecap asin”, you’ll find it on your table.
Burung Dara Goreng

 
I really love to eat Burung Dara, and one of my favorite restaurant to eat Burung Dara is Tristar. Ini nih, kecil-kecil cabe rawit! So delicious, finger licking good!
Risoles Udang

 
Taste crispy on the outside, but very tender in the middle. I love the prawn’s taste. You need to eat it with the dipping sauce (maybe, it’s sambal?) to get more flavor to this dish.
Tahu Enoki

 
They use Tahu Jepang or Tofu in this meal. The tofu taste super delicate, easy to chew, and the tofu melts in the mouth.
Koloke

 
Delicious! I always order a Koloke if I went here. Taste good and they use chicken’s breast, so I think it is healthier rather than the other part of chicken.
I Fu Mie
Sorry, I couldn’t take the I Fu Mie’s picture since I’m out for a moment to go to the bathroom. After I came back, yeah... all of the I Fu Mie were almost gone by half. That’s why I’m not taking picture of those.
Of course, I still eat it at home! Taste delicious, but for me they should add more salt in the seasoning moment.
Service
Two – or maybe four, if I could raise my feet’s thumb! – up for the service given by Tristar. The waiter there are very attentive and they always change our plate into the new ones everytime we finish eating. Not only that, our glass are always full. All of the waiters are friendly and I think they love to smile!
Ambiance

 
There’s no special occasion like a wedding when I went here, which is good. The space is spacious, and even though it’s a regular day they have lots of customers. A great place with grandma, grandpa, colleagues, or even parents.

Auntie Anne's : Pretzel Perfect! Smile Aug 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stand / Kios | Camilan | Halal

What is your favorite, ready to go snack on the mall? For me, it must be Auntie Anne’s! Unfortunately, in my hometown, Surabaya, there’s no Auntie Anne’s stall yet (too bad, right?) that’s why I couldn’t eat Auntie Anne’s in Surabaya, I always eat this one when I’m in Jakarta.

 
The first time I’ve ever tried Auntie Anne’s was in Grand Indonesia. The stall is located on the ground floor, near the supermarket. Even though the location is not strategic – in my opinion – but people still queuing for Auntie Anne’s, including me, because I’m joining the queue! Don’t worry though, because this is a fast food restaurant and the serving time is not long.

Cinnamon Pretzel – IDR 15,000

 
When in Auntie Anne’s, the number 1 snack that you should order is the pretzel. I don’t know why, their pretzel taste really really good! Pretzel is actually a type of an original “roti goreng” but it has the shape is like an infinity. My favorite pretzel is Cinnamon. You could also order dipping sauce if you want.
Pretzel Dog

 
If you bored eating their pretzel, then you could try pretzel dog. Basically the taste of the pretzel is the same, but this one has like a hot dog shape (maybe that’s why the name is also pretzel dog). Not only that, the filling also consists of sausage. Yes, a delish-savory dish.
Lemonade – IDR 14,000
A super refreshing drink that you need to order. Sometimes if I’m thirsty, I only bought a lemonade drink from Auntie Anne’s. It’s sour, but I still could handle it. One of my choice in a hot weather.
Service
There’s nothing special and nothing to complain about, since the crew there will ask you what do you want, then straightly give that to you (all the pretzels are cooked, and they only need to push a button to fill the drink’s cup. A fast service, though.
Ambiance
The stall is not that big and doesn’t have a spacious area. The sitting places are super small, and I don't recommend you to sit inside, especially with the sofa one, because it’s really hard to get out. No wonder I always prefer to take away rather than dine-in.

We were going to Karangasem from Denpasar, and it’s already around 2 p.m in the afternoon. We haven’t eat lunch yet, and we know there’s a fast food restaurant called my Dea, selling fried chicken, French fries, bento box, and also Ayam Kalingga (an Indonesian dish) near the bypass to Karangasem. That is why, to save our time and also still eating delicious food, we decided to eat in My Dea.

 

 

 
We order some of the dishes, which are Ayam Kalingga package (include rice and also ice tea) and their fried chicken – really famous in Bali. We need to wait for a while because they need to fried the Ayam Kalingga. Not for long, then we finally could enjoy our orders.
Paket Ayam Kalingga (Include Es Teh) - IDR 23,000

 
They’re using Ayam Kampung for this menu, and the size of the chicken is still big, which is really great. If you know, usually the size of ayam kampung is small and if you don’t cook it right, it could be very hard to chew. There’s also “Kremesan” or like some small chips to enjoy with. The sambal also taste really great. I really love every bite of this one. A great lunch indeed!
Paket Dea 4 ( Ayam Dada/PahaAtas/PahaBawah + Kentang + Es Jeruk ) - IDR 24,000

 

 
I always eat paha atas, and never eat Dada. The chicken skin is crispy and has an Indonesian flavor – which is very rare and taste great at the same time – and for the French fries, I’d recommend you to order Barbeque flavor instead of Salt.
Service

 

 
Even though we need to wait for about 10 minutes to get our order, but it’s understandable since the chicken is freshly cook from the oven. They also serve us with smile. This is also a self service restaurant, but if you already sit on your table, then they’ll come and deliver your order to the table.
Ambiance

 

 

 
The one near bypass to karangasem has a paddy field view, and it’s really great. It makes our heart feel calmer and we enjoy our lunch more. The restaurant is also spacious. They even have a place for kids to celebrate their birthdays! It’s super affordable and a great choice for those who look for an affordable birthday budget for their children.

I bet you heard a lot about Naughty Nuri’s from your families, friends, or even colleagues’ right? Naughty Nuri’s is really famous for their delicious, yummy, finger licking good pork ribs not only in Bali, but maybe all over big cities in Java and other islands. Naughty Nuri’s only has branches in Jakarta and other Bali area like Ubud.

 

 
That is why, when I’m in Bali, of course I need to eat at Naughty Nuri’s. The driver told us that actually Naughty Nuri’s already rebrand or rename the restaurants become Hog Wild. So yes, now the new name is Hog Wild. I don’t know the exact story why they change their name. Well... the only thing matter is the taste still the same, right?

Pork Ribs - IDR 119,000

 
This is like the number 1 dish that you must and need to order at Hog Wild. Don’t forget to ask the waiter for “Tulang Muda” and you’ll get a better taste of the ribs (in my opinion). I really love the taste, and the seasoning is just perfect.
Beef Ribs – IDR 89,000

 
I could easily peel the beef from its bone. It’s so tender, juicy, and the portion is big too. I think all the food in Hog Wild’s are designed for sharing.
Grilled Chicken - IDR 55,000

 
To my surprise, the chicken is big and – oh my – really delicious! I thought the taste would be kind of plain because it’s grilled.
Hand Cut Fries - IDR 28,000
The all time perfect finger food is French fries. It’s seasoned already, that’s why the taste is already great.
Service

 
The waiter is super nice and she’s taking our order nicely. She’s also explaining the dish, what is the difference between this and that, and so on. She’s also taking a picture of us before we enjoy all the dishes.
Ambiance

 

 
It has two main area, one is near the bar or inside Hog Wild’s, with a foosball game. Another one is located on the back, and the theme is a garden. It’s not an open area, however the attic is transparent, that's why the lights could go through. We choose to sit here, because it has a better light (for taking pictures) and we love the ambiance here.
