Ta Wan : Family Choices Smile Aug 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Bubur | Seafood | Kumpul Keluarga

If I go to Tunjungan Plaza with my parents, most likely we’ll eat Ta Wan, because it’s one of my family favorite restaurant here. But, I bet everybody also loves Ta Wan. As the name implies, it’s specializing on Chinese food cuisine, but a HALAL one, means NO Pork.
If you want to eat here during lunch or dinner hour, then you need to be patient for a while, because the queue is kinda of long! So you need to get here just moments before dinner and lunchtime, to get a sit. My favorite is outside, because I could watch people pass by.
Bubur Ayam - IDR 22,000

 
It’s always been my family favorite menu in Ta Wan. With a large portion of porridge, the portion is really big. You could share this one with 4 - 6 person. Even more, depending on your food portion.
To add the richness of the flavour, don’t forget to ask for ‘Kecap asin & cabe potong’ to the waiter. Super yum!
S.O. Kakap Asam Manis - IDR 41,000

 
This one is my father’s favourite. With a tender snapper fish, combine with the freshness of the asam manis sauce, you could happily eat this dish with a warm bowl of rice.
Ikan Dory Telur Asin - IDR 45,500

 
I think everything with salted egg will taste awesome, including this Dorry Fish. The fish is tender and well cook, I can taste the cripy-ness of the skin, and the salted egg is really great!
Well, beware of the cholesterol though, hahaha!
Service
The waiter is attentive and she’s willing to explain the menu for us. We also don’t need to wait too long for our order, which is very nice – especially when you’re starving. They’re also smiling when we left Ta Wan and say thank you to us.
Ambiance

 
This is a true family restaurant, and you’ll find lots of families eat here in Ta Wan. The design also represents Chinese, with all the decoration and also the wall colors. They also prepare types of tables, for example family with 4 persons, 3 persons, 2 persons, until up to 8 persons.

Cocari : All You Can Eat ! Smile Aug 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Jepang | Restaurant | Kencan / Berpasangan | Kumpul Keluarga

If you want to eat in this restaurant, I’d suggest you to make an appointment first, so you’ll be guaranteed a place. For your information, this is an all you can eat restaurant. You could imagine how long the customers will sit there and enjoy the dinner - as long and as much as they like - right?

All you can eat, IDR 121,000 per person

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The food is ranging from meat, chicken, seafood, vegetables, macaroni, sushi rools, dessert, soups, meatballs, until ice cream & the beverages. It’s really a lot! My most favorite dish here are:
Meat!

 

 
I usually take like a stacks of meat and then grill it along with my friends. If you want to make it tastier, don’t forget to mix it with the sauce (you’ll have 3 sauce options on your table) and then crack an egg, mix it together. On your grill, put some of onion rings so it brings out the nice, mouth-watering smell.
Chicken

 
My suggestions, don’t grill the chicken together with your meat, because the flavor of the meat will be decreasing. That’s why you need to grill it at the last. Chicken also need more time to cook than meat.
Soups
On your table, you’ll also have a pot. Here, you could boil some chicken, or maybe tofu, meatballs, anything you like! Don’t forget to add some vegetables inside it. Also, turn off the stove when the soup boiled. If you forget to turn it off, then your soups might be too salty.
Service

 
The waiter is super duper attentive! Even though this place is filled with bunch of people, especially this is the breakfasting time, but the waiter respond each of our requests fast. Starting from asking additional chopsticks until replacing the grill & charcoal. Superb!
Ambiance

 
Since it was super crowded, it’s really noisy and you could hear so many chitchat! You even have to be patient enough when you want to grab something, because there might be people in front of you. Also, because the gap between the tables is kinda small, then you need to walk slowly so you don’t bump within each other.
Overall, I think it’s a suitable place to eat with your friends - your whole gang!

Located in Jalan Kranggan, the real stall of Pak Gendut is with the green colour, like shown in the picture. Because there are lots of “copycats” around, of course with a different flavor from Pak Gendut. It opens around 12 – 1 p.m, and it’s kinda hard to look for a parking area, especially for cars.
Longing Balap itself is one of the traditional food from Surabaya. It consists of kecambah / taoge (beansprout) & its soup, “Tahu Goreng” (deep fried tofu), “terasi” paste, “lento”, and ketchups. You could also have the side dish which is “Sate Kerang” & also the chilli sauce. Let’s review the food!
Lontong Balap - IDR 10,000

 
The “terasi” paste is really flavourful, and i love the beansprout. It’s really crunchy and well cooked. Love the texture of “Lento”, it’s super savory. The tofu is deep fried and dry, and I really like it. Just add the chilli sauce, and you’ll get one of the best Lontong Balap ever!
Sate Kerang - @ IDR 1,000

 
I could say that the price is super affordable, because in 1 stick, you’ll get like 4 “kerang” in a very tiny size. You could say that actually “Kerang” is “Lontong Balap” best friend, tastes really good when they two blends together in your mouth. It’s usually serve with ketchup, “bawang goreng” (fried red onion), and of course, chilli sauce.
Beverages
Coconut Ice

 
If you want some freshness after eating the flavorful “Longing Balap” then coconut ice is a very great choice. The coconut is crunchy and the coconut water tastes sweet (they add some white sugar into it). A perfect drink in a hot weather ;)
Ambiance

 
The stall is super small, so don’t expect anything like air conditioner or stuffs. It’s so comfortable though, and I love sitting in front of the seller, watching him or sometimes her making the customer’s order.
Service
The seller there loves to chit chat. You’ll get a chance to chit chat with them if you sit on the chair infront of them. With a very traditional Surabayanese language, they’re really friendly and kind.

Honestly, I went here with my dad - yes, not with friends hahaha - on Saturday afternoon, after I finished some works. Because I want to try this cafe so badly, and I don’t have anytime to go with friends, that’s why I ask my dad to accompany me. Lucky me, he agreed!

 

 

 
It was Saturday that day, and Caturra Espresso was really crowded with youngsters. Maybe the oldest man in this place is my dad. All of the people here are busy taking pictures of themselves, OOTD pictures, and also food pictures. It’s really fun to watch them doing all that poses. The waiter there also understand about this “behavior” and they just ignore us and stand still on their place.
Because I’m not hungry and my dad already ate, we only order their beverages.
Red Velvet Latte - IDR 36,000

 
I like the red velvet here. It’s not sweet - which is good - and all the flavor blend nicely. I think I could sit there all day long with my laptops and just daydreaming alone. Hahaha!
Cookies and Cream - IDR 42,000

 
Believe me, this is my dad choice. My dad isn’t a coffee lover - well, my mom is - that’s why he always prefer something sweet like milkshake or cookies and cream. It taste good, but I think it’s better for them to add more cookies and cream, because it’s too milky and I barely could feel the cookies.
Ambiance

 

 
White is their main colour. I think I could feel that they’re trying to bring out the feeling of a cozy, cool, comfortable place to hanging out alone to get some wonderful ideas, or gossiping with friends. They also have the outdoor area, however it’s too hot that day and no one sit there.
Service
Even though the place is super crowded, the waiter is super attentive and they are all standby on each side of the customers. That’s why I don’t need to turn my head around or shouting just to call for the waiter. Also, I only wait about 5 - 10 minutes to get all beverages. How nice!

Confit : A Fine Dining Restaurant Smile Aug 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Restaurant

Located on Jl. Kartini No. 69, Confit can be considered as a fine - dining restaurant in the middle of Surabaya city.

 
It’s best to go here at dinner time with your love ones, however, your food picture might not be good.

 
Therefore, first I’d like to say sorry if the food picture is not as appealing as usual, because it’s only using an ordinary camera phone. Apologies, taking the picture with a limited-phone camera, hahaha!
FOOD
APPETIZERs
Escargot - IDR 40,000

 
One of my favorite appetizers, escargot. Easy to chew, really savory, and perfect for sharing. Taste good and because it’s not served with the shell, you could eat it easily with just a fork.
Salmon & Scallop - IDR 40,000
Just who on earth doesn’t love the tenderness of salmon combined with scallop? There are also some potato chips as the condiments that you could enjoy with.
MAIN COURSEs
Fish of The Day - IDR 110,000

 
The fish is perfectly cook. It’s somehow juicy, crispy outside and also tender at the same time. There’s also some potato and salads to refresh your appetite.
My Burger - IDR 120,000

 
Burger and french fries is an all day long courses! You could happily eat a burger even at dinner. Besides, the meat is so easy to chew and I love the gravy sauce.
DESSERTs
Chocolate Dome - IDR 40,000

 
Basically a chocolate Icecream served with some whip cream, chocolate sauce, and chocolate dust, I think it will be a memorable dessert to end your day ;)
Chocolate Lava - IDR 35,000

 
Everybody love the melting chocolate lava that burst out from the chocolate cake, especially me! To complete the lava cake, there’s also a vanilla ice cream. A very recommended dessert!
BEVERAGES
Longan Carm - IDR 38,000

 
A refreshing drink to enjoy a delicious food is always a great choice. With the fresh longan inside, you could digest all the yummy food easily.
Lychee Twist - IDR 38,000
Almost the same with the Longan Carm, Lychee Twist is also a great choice because it’s refreshing and using the fresh fruits.
THE SERVICE
As it’s a fine dining restaurant, all the waiters are super attentive and help us to choose the menus.
THE AMBIANCE

 
I could say that Confit offers you an elegant, spacious space for dinner, especially with your loved ones or families.
