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!

Carpentier Kitchen is located on the same place as ORE, one of the hip fashion store located in Surabaya. As far as I know, the owner of ORE is also the one who came up with an idea of holding a Sunday Market in Sutos.

 
I came here about Friday afternoon, and this place is super crowded with teenagers around my age. They’re busy doing with some projects, and some of them enjoying there time there, gossiping.
Virginia Cheese Fries - IDR 20,000

 
I LOVE the French fries! I think what makes it delicious is the mayo and cheese topping. This is a must order here.
Punta Cana Carpentier - IDR 26,000

 
The pancake taste great, but it’s not that “WOW”. You’ll have 2 stacks of pancakes. So if you feel that’s too much, you could always share ;)
Playa Delamor Carpentier - IDR 29,000

 
Actually, all their pancake taste the same and has the same appearance. The only differences is the topping. So this time, it’s coated with a blueberry sauce.
Soda Cap Badak - IDR 14,000

 
This is a rare drink to find! It’s not a rootbeer, and it has a sweet taste. Very delicious, and if I’m not mistaken, you could only find this drink around Medan area. So if you haven’t taste one, you could buy it in Carpentier.
Milkshake Vanilla - IDR 25,000

 
Milkshake never gone wrong, right? It’s a perfect pair with the pancakes!
Vanilla Latte - IDR 20,000

 
However, if you’re a coffee lovers, then vanilla latte could be the right choice. Taste great with a very affordable price, and it’s cold-served.
Service
Even though the place is crowded and we sit in the corner of the place, the waiter still notice us. She even turn on the fan just for us, because we’re sitting outside that day (the place inside is full already). A good service, indeed.
Ambiance

 
I must admit that ORE has a very peaceful and very comfortable ambiance to hang out. I love just to sit around here, zipping my coffee – or even milkshake! While waiting for your order, you also could look around the shop, who knows there’s a gorgeous clothes waiting for you there, right?
Stay awake for another food journey!

This is my first time ever tyring Warung Ipang. Warung Ipang itself is located on the fifth floor of Tunjungan Plaza, near the food court area and also Cinema XXI. It’s basically a restaurant and located next to the foodcourt. I could say this is a restaurant because the sitting area is private, not blend with other foodcourt stall.

I choose Warung Ipang mainly because I never tried their food, plus I’m really hungry and somehow crave for Iga! Who on earth doesn’t love to eat ribs? *Drools*. As it is not in weekend, Warung Ipang is not that crowded. I quickly get seats and then a waiter nicely take my order.

Iga Penyet

 
Translated as ribs in English, a great and delicious Iga Penyet should easily separated from the bone at the moment you slice the meat. By just writing this review, I drool! The ribs are tender enough – but not that tender – and the sambal makes it perfect. If you love a hot sambal, then you should request that.

Kepiting Soka Telur Asin

 
One of my favourite seafood is kepiting soka. I know it doesn’t have the tender, soft crab meat inside, but the taste of kepiting soka is always delicious! Kepiting Soka (Soka Crab) and Telur Asin (Salted Egg) are two best best bestfriends! I never eat it with spoon, because I want to lick my fingers!

Cah Tauge

 
I always have a vegetable dish to neutralize the taste of the meat or seafood. Today, I really want to eat Cah Tauge instead of Kangkung. Tauge is a beanspourt in English, and I love this vegetables since if you cook it right, the texture will be super crunchy!

Ambiance

 
It’s super cozy, because it’s an open restaurant. You could see people pass by and just enjoy the view of the whole Malls from the highest floor in Tunjungan Plaza. If you’re afraid of height, then you might want to sit inside the area. I think a little touch of music will lighten up the whole mood.

Service

 
Because it’s not that crowded, the waiter serve you really fast. She also explain the menu to us like a pro! (Since I love to ask many questions) hahaha!
Stay awake for another food journey!
