Mon Cheri : Delicious Ice Cream! Smile Aug 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Es Krim/Yogurt | Kencan / Berpasangan

I was just back from the Airport, picking up my mother. Then, we decided to go Mon Cheri, to chill out just for a while. Mon Cheri is an Ice cream stall that has several branches in Surabaya, one of the example is located in Tunjungan Plaza.

 
It has been there since I was a little kid. They served an old style ice cream like macedonia, tutti fruti, those kind of ice creams that you won’t find anywhere. Nowadays, people sell gelato and all teenagers eat gelato (including me, sometimes). We totally missed the taste of those old ice creams, and then take a sit in Mon Cheri.
Macedonia - 35,000

 
I really love macedonia because it served with a whole lots of Rhum. Taste really good, and I think I’ll eat the chocolate macedonia on my next visit … hahaha!
Casatta - 30,000

 
It’s been a long time since my last time of eating casatta. So, this ice cream consists of whipped cream on top of it, and has 3 layers, just like a cake. There are vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate flavors in one slice.
Tutti Fruti - 30,000

 
Even though the name consists of “Fruti” don’t expect that you’ll eat a lot of Fruit in the ice cream. The major flavor is moccha, with some - I don’t know, Frozen fruit? - in the middle of the white ice cream. That white ice cream is not vanilla. Somehow the taste is like whipped cream, but I’m not really sure. One thing I’m sure about, that this one taste delicious!

 

 
Service
Even though it’s early, but the waiter is not really concentrating at the moment. He forgot that we also order Macedonia, and I need to ask + re-order again because of that. However, they serve the ice cream really fast, so I think it’s still okay. It’s better next time to listen carefully and take note on all of the customers order ;)
Ambiance
It’s still early, like 10.30 a.m in the morning. Tunjungan Plaza itself has just opened, that’s why there are no people except us there. If they’re willing to add some nice music, then it’ll be very nice.

Located on the fifth floor of Tunjungan Plaza Surabaya, Marina have been really famous for their delicious & unresistable seafood. The location is somehow “hidden” behind the walls on 5th floor, so if you walk, then you need to turn around or just turn left to spot this restaurant.

 
It’s been a long time since my family ate here, that’s why we choose Marina as our lunch that afternoon. I also really want to eat seafood and still have much time before I split with my family and spend time with my friends.
Gurami Bakar Rica - IDR 75,600

 
The price is based on how many ounce your Gurami is. That’s why, it may varies depends on your Gurami. Taste good, I could feel the Rica-rica taste. If you like spicy food, then this one might be your best option.
Cumi Telur Bakar Matang - IDR 69,000

 
This is my first time to eat squid together with their eggs. It’s really savoury, I love how they grill the squid, its still taste buttery and a bit sticky. Finger licking good! I could say that this is one of my favourite menu here in Marina.
Kangkung Terasi - IDR 46,000

 
I can tell is well cooked because the texture is still crunchy. That’s why my family loves it. I think Kangkung is always a perfect choice to eat with anything, especially seafood and fried chicken.
Each of the guests will get “Sambal Dabu-dabu” to enjoy with your seafood. If you feel it’s not enough, feel free to ask for the refills, hahaha!

 
Service

 
The waiter is a bit inpatient, she looks ike in a rush and doesn’t really respond our questions or order. Plus, we need to wait a bit long for the Gurami Bakar Rica, when everything else are already on our table. However, i’m still okay with the service, plus their seafood is truly nice!
Ambiance

 
It’s an open family restaurant, where you could enjoy your time with family and eat seafood – in a harsh way (penuh dengan nafsu) ! I don’t know why, the lighting is kind of dark, and it’s better to have more lights around.

Do you want to eat while having chit chat with your friends or family? Want to bring togetherness within? Then, I think eating Suki could be a nice choice, because you’ll work together to cook and serve the Suki. Plus, you could choose whatever you want to eat there.

 
Suki - Range from IDR 20 - 30k
Your price will depends on what you ordered. The cheapest plate are those like noodles and vegetables. The highest is of course like the premium meat and seafood.
The choices ranges, so you don’t need to be worry. You could choose starting from vegetables, noodles, mushrooms, meatballs, seafood, meats, tofus, and others. They provide this big open fridge for you to choose what do you want (as seen on the picture).
My favourite Suki are :
Meat

 
Who doesn’t love to eat meat? Taste really great and you just need to cook it for a while inside boiling water. The portion for 1 plate is only 3-4 slices of meat (if I’m not mistaken).
Enoki mushroom wrapped with smoked beef

 

 
I love this one because of the mushroom. Even though it is mushrooms, but it’s somehow crunchy and I love to eat this one with the tom yam soup. Yummy!
Two choice of soup : Tom Yam and Chicken soup
If you want to try both soup, you could tell the waiter and they’ll separate the bowl into two soups. I always eat Suki with Tom Yam soup, because I think it’s more refreshing and has this sour - but delicious - taste.
But if you don’t like anything sour and prefer a light taste, then chicken soup is a great choice.
Service

 
It was near the breakfasting time, and the waiters are super busy. There are lots of customer coming in, that’s why they need to rush to prepare all of the order. That is why, the waiters forgot to bring our tea, even asking for a chopstick, we need to wait like forever. However, because it’s near the breakfasting time that day , I don’t really mind about that and the service is still okay with me.

Ambiance

I think this is a great place to have dinner with your friends or even work colleagues and also family. They have round tables fit for 10 people, so it's easier to have a chit chat together.

Do you love Seafood? I think, almost every people do, right? If you do love seafood, then most likely you’ll love to eat Crab. Benar apa benar? ;p

 

 
One of the favourite crab restaurant in Surabaya city is Kepiting Cak Gundul. Originally, it comes from “Pandaan” area, just next to Surabaya city. Because of its popularity and Surabaya citizen really loves it, then Kepiting Cak Gundul open its branches in Kupang Indah area, West Surabaya.

 
Here, you could choose what kind of crab you wants, plus you can choose the living crab by yourself - if you want to -. They served fresh seafood, so no doubt that the taste will be really great.
Kepiting 0.9 Kg - IDR 198,000

 
The most famous menu in here of course the crab / Kepiting. You could cook it with several kinds of gravy / sauce, depending what is your favourite sauce. At this time, I choose the “Saus Padang” or padang sauce, which is kind of hot. But it’s really finger licking good! The crab is perfectly cook and the meat is super tender. Don’t forget to ask for some pliers (Tang) so you could crack the crab shell easily.
Cumi - IDR 53,000

 
For those who didn’t really like to eat crab, then you still have another seafood choice here, for example squid (cumi). The squid also cooked really well and the sauce is super nice. Eat it with warm rice, then I guarantee you’ll crave for more.
Kangkung - IDR 21,000

 
To balance the seafood, I choose to order Kangkung as the vegetables. It’s been cooked well, the texture is still crunchy, and a nice combination with all of the seafood.
Ambiance

 
It’s just a usual restaurant for those who really love to eat. Don’t expect a nice view, a cute little decoration on the corner, or even a great music. You’re here to eat! (Harshly, with all of your emotions, hahaha!)
Service

 
You’ll need to wait patiently because they’ll cook your chosen crab from scratch. However, the waiting time is not that long (Approx 10 - 15 minutes). With the taste that you’ll get later on, it’s super worth it!

This cafe shop truly brighten up my day, since I was a bit pissed because of something bad happenned. Located in front of XXI inside Tunjungan Plaza, when I went here there’s a promotion of 25% off by using CIMB Niaga, Debit or Credit Card. Besides this promotion, Cuppa Coffee also have so many promos and discounts, such as follow their instagram and get 20% off, every monday buy 1 get 1 free, and so on.
Beverages
Choco Overdose - IDR 40,000

 
Like the name implies, you really could feel the chocolate inside this drink. However, I’m not that overdose by the chocolate, hahahaha. It might be that I’m too in love with chocolate, and I think a great chocolate must have a taste like that strong, dark chocolate. I love the whipped cream, though. Somehow it’s super milky and the additional “coklat meses” on top, clever!
Spaghetti Iga Bakar (Grilled Ribs) Black Pepper - IDR 60,000

 
A combination between Indonesian and Western food, I personally think it’s match. The ribs is so tender, easy to chew, and the seasoning is perfect. The spaghetti is al dente (means cooked well). However, for me the black pepper is too strong and it should be reduced a little.
Oreo & Vanilla Pancake, Double - IDR 28,000

 
For the dessert, I choose the oreo & vanilla pancake. Look at how nice the presentation is! The pancake is not fluffy enough, but it’s so soft. Pancake, oreo, crumbs, chocolate sauce, and vanilla ice cream. Just who on earth could resist that?
Service

 

 

 
The waiter is super friendly and explain the menus patiently. However, she forgot to give the whipped cream on my chocolate drink (she just ask me whether I want to whipped cream or not, then she directly forget it, hahaha). But it’s okay though, since I ask again and she directly add whipped cream on top of my drink, and it’s a lot!
Ambiance

 

 
I found it surprisingly comfortable even though the location is an open one and lots of people passing by around there. I love how comfy the sofas are (they provide 2 tables using sofas!)
Surprisingly, there’s NO TAX added inside the bill! So the price in the menu is included tax. If you want to give a service tip for the waiter, then Cuppa Coffee already provide a small pot just in front of the cashier table. You can put your tip there!
I’d love to grab a quick cup of coffee again here soon!
