Located on Jalan Tidar, you could say that this place is near my house. Approx 15 minutes to go to this place. There are lots of old and new food stalls around the area, and one of the famous small restaurant here is Pangsit Mie Tidar.

 
They start open from the afternoon, but people love to go here at night, to have dinner with their colleagues or family. I love to go here at night too! Even though they have lots of customers everyday, but they served the noodles really fast. Because they already made the noodles and just need to boil them for minutes.
As the name implies, Pangsit Mie, you couldn’t expect other dish such as fried rice here. Only noodles, with some choices like meatballs, chop chicken meat, or pangsit.
Pangsit Mie Bakwan – IDR 35,000

 
I always order Pangsit Mie Bakwan, because it has the complete package of 2 meatballs, chicken meat and pangsit. I know right, I eat a lot, hahaha! Personally, I think the price is super affordable considering you’ll get a big portion of noodles plus that three delicious toppings. You could even share 1 bowl with a friend or family member because the portion is super huge.
Es Kacang Hijau – IDR 12,000

 

 
Surabayanese people must know about this legendary es kacang hijau in Tidar. Until now, I’m not sure whether the owner is the same with Mie Tidar, but the location of this kacang hijau stall is the same with Mie Tidar. They served a cold kacang hijau with condensed milk on top. Same with the noodle, it also has a big portion, so you could share. The taste is refreshing and so milky!
Service
Even though they don’t give the best service like a restaurant quality, but they’ll serve you really fast. No matter what your order is. You order noodle, 3 minutes later it came to your table, as well as the drink.
Ambiance
It’s kinda hot because there’s no air-conditioner, and it’s super crowded. People here are busy eating anyway, so you might want to wear something comfortable and just enjoy your noodle peacefully here.
Stay awake for another food journey!

Primarasa could be said as a family restaurant, because you’ll mostly eat here with your family. Lots of people love to eat in Primarasa because they always have discounts! Plus, if there’s a credit card promotion, then they’ll add more discounts into your bill. Interesting, right?
Not a long ago, I got a chance to dine in Primarasa with my family. We always order our favorite menus from Primarasa, and here they are:
Ayam Bakar 1 ekor – IDR 42,000

 

 
As the full name implies, which is Ayam Bakar Primarasa, one of the menu that you must try here is the Ayam Bakar or the Grilled Chicken. The chicken meat is super tender, and it’s coated with black gravy – I think it’s from ketchup and many other seasoning. You could enjoy it with some crumbs, plus a special sambal for the grilled chicken. Finger licking good!
Ayam Penyet Dada – IDR 13,000

 
For those who doesn’t like Grilled Chicken, then ordering a traditional Javanese dish like Ayam Penyet might be a great choice. It’s served with chilli sauce, and you could request whether you want to make it hot or not.
Udang Mayonaisse – IDR 43,000

 
Not only tasty on the chicken meat, but also tasty on seafood. One of my fave dish here is the Mayonaisse Prawn. They’ll give you lots of mayo sauce on top, and the prawn taste crispy on the outside, tender in inside. Super yummy! You could just eat this one without rice.
Pepes Bandeng Tanpa Duri Pedas – IDR 47,000

 
Actually, at that time we want to order Bandeng Bakar, however it is out of stock. That’s why we changed it with Pepes Bandeng. Turns out not bad and taste great! However, I personally think they add too much “Daun Kemangi” so it’s dominating the flavor. But my mom and her sister love this one. They also got the frozen Pepes Bandeng, in case you want to take it home.
Cah Kangkung Hot Plate – IDR 16,000

 
Don’t forget to order vegetables! If you want to play safe just like me, then Kangkung will be a perfect options. You could never gone wrong with it, could you? It’s seasoned with garlics and taste good, balancing the whole dish.
Sambal Terong – IDR 10,000

 
My dad really loves Terong, that’s why he ordered this one. Basically, the sambal will taste the same. The difference only they add some eggplants into it.
Sambal Mangga Muda – IDR 10,000

 
This is my mom and I fave sambal. Taste a bit sour, but it can raise your appetite into the maximum level!
Service

 
It’s kinda crowded that day, that’s why the waiter seems a bit “lost” and tired. She don’t smile and she even didn’t repeat our order and just walk away like that.
Ambiance

 
People are very busy enjoying their meal and their time with their families. You could hear lots of chatter from your seat,just like any ordinary restaurant.
Stay awake for another food journey!

One of the best thing in Surabaya is its food street. Surabayanese is kinda different from Jakartanese, or even any other parts in Indonesia. We love something “old” and traditional. Yes, we love food that’s introduced by our parents, even great great grandparents. It never changed until now.
I must admit that traditional Surabayanese food does taste good, especially the food street. Even though they run through several generations, they still maintain the taste and it’s still deliciously unresistable. Right now, I want to introduce one of my mom’s favorite street food in Surabaya – and also my fave, actually – around Ondomohen area, which is Sate Klopo or Kelapa, which means a coconut satay in English.

 
Sate Kelapa is basically a beef satay that’s topped with peanut and ketchup gravy, plus coconut sprinkles on top. A lot of people love it because it’s rare to find a beef satay – with coconut, especially – here in Surabaya.
10 Tusuk Sate Kelapa - IDR 22,000

 
With the price and the portion you’ll get, which is 10 tusuk of sate kelapa, I personally think it’s a really good price. It’s a beef meat, and beef is super pricey, right? Taste really good, freshly grilled and you could smell the yummy peanut sauce. Best served while hot, so you might want to eat it fast! What I love the most that this one served on a leaf, feels like more natural and earthy in a some way.
Ambiance
This is a street food. So you don’t expect a very luxurious place to eat. You need to eat inside of the small stall, or even just stand there on the street. It’s super crowded, whether it’s in the morning or in the evening. Get ready to wait patiently! If you don’t like to queue, then come early in the morning and make a take away order, so you could eat it at home, just like me ;)
Service
It’s all self service, I think. You need to race and shout your order to all women who grilled the satay. You also need to find your own place to sit – if you’re eating there – and just be patient waiting for your satay.
Stay awake for another food journey!

Traditional Snacks To Try! Smile Aug 15, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stand / Kios | Halal

If you’re going to Surabaya, then the number one place that you should visit is Pasar Atum. Why is that so? Because Pasar Atum is the home of the greatest snacks, cooks, and even traditional food of Surabaya. You could find lots of Surabayanese - Chinese food here. One of my favourite stall in Pasar Atum is Kartika Jajan Pasar. They have 2 main areas here in Pasar Atum.

 
The first one is in the old Pasar Atum ( Pasar Atum Lama), on the 3rd Floor, so you’ll need to hop on the escalator twice. The second one is located also on the 3rd floor, near a Bakery and shoes shop, in the new pasar Atum ( Pasar Atum Baru ). The second stall is smaller than the first one. So if you want to have a cozy seats for nongkrong, then the first stall is the best option.
All of the stalls are open space, so you could see other Pasar Atum visitors while enjoying your snacks. Keep in mind though, Kartika doesn’t sell heavy meal. They just sell traditional Indonesian snacks like Lumpia, Ote-ote, Kucur, and others with a delicious taste (in my opinion). So yes, let’s review 3 of my favorite snacks & drink here!
Lumpia Goreng - IDR 12,000

 
Just who on earth doesn’t love Lumpia Goreng? It’s a deep fried lumpia skin (the one that you use to make siomay) with some fillings inside. Usually it consists of Rebung, beansprout, and some vegetables. In Kartika, you could taste meat inside.
Lumpia Basah - IDR 12,000

 
It’s the opposite from Lumpia Goreng, this one is boiled, but with the same fillings.
Sinom

 
The best Indonesian traditional beverages in my version is Sinom! Drink it when still cold, and you’ll get refreshed by the taste.

 
Ambiance
Since this is a traditional food stall, I really love the design because it’s super traditional. They also use a traditional “Baki” to take your order.
Service
I don’t know, because Kartika is always full of people, the waiter almost never smile to the guests. They move and speak like a robot, answering the questions like a machine. Sadly but yes, that’s the tipical service you’ll get here in Surabaya if the place already famous.
Stay awake for another food journey!

Lontong Mie is known as one of the traditional food in Surabaya and in Indonesia. I think if this is your first time going to Surabaya, or you’ve gone to Surabaya but never tried the traditional food here, then it’s the time to try one! There are surely lots of Surabayanese food that you shouldn’t miss!
One of the most famous Lontong Mie food stall is located in Pasar Atum. If you’re following my blog post or food posts here, you must know that Pasar Atum is one of the malls in Surabaya. It has 2 main places, which are the new Pasar Atum and the old one.

 
Lontong mie Ny. Maria is located on the 2nd Floor of Pasar Atum Old Mall. Just take the escalator once, then continue straight until you see some food stalls, and then you’ll spot a sign Lontong Mie Ny. Maria. This place is always crowded, so prepare for queue!
Lontong Mie - IDR 15,000

 
Basically, Lontong Mie consists of a black soup (this is made mainly from Terasi or shrimp paste, mixed with some shrimp water, and also mashed garlic), yellow noodle, shrimps, and some dried tofus.
If you’re allergic to seafood, then surely you can’t eat this. The portion of this lontong mie is not really big. You might need to eat 2 portions, or else just eat 1 portion, so you could try other food inside Pasar Atum Mall.
Sate Kerang - @IDR 1,500

 
The best side dish while eating Lontong Mie is Sate Kerang. Even though the colour is not that good, it taste so fluffy and flavourful. One is never going to be enough!
Es kelapa – IDR 20,000
After eating lontong mie, you might need to refresh yourself by ordering es Kelapa at this stall. There es kelapa colour is somehow green, maybe they’re using green syrup as the base. However, I think their price for this es kelapa is kinda pricey, because the taste is not that nice – it’s like a plain water with coconut)

 
Ambiance
It’s super crowded, hot (no air-con) and the place isn’t that neat.
Service
Because they’re serving lots of people, don’t expect a high quality service. One thing for sure, relax because they won’t forget your order.
Stay awake for another food journey!
