Thai Food OK Feb 19, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thailand | Restaurant | Kumpul Keluarga

I've been attracted to this restaurant for a time, coz its colorful appearance is just irresistibly cute. Finally, I got to try eating here. In Surabaya, Thai to Me has 2 outlets at Tunjungan Plaza and Supermal Pakuwon Indah. The outlet at Supermal is a bit more crowded than TP.

 

 

 
Original Tea - IDR10,000
The tea was tad too sweet for my liking
Rating: 6/10

 
Signature Thai Tea - IDR17,000
Although I couldn't taste any difference from normal milk tea, this one was still refreshing.
Rating: 7/10

 

 

 

BBQ Chicken on Rice - IDR35,500
This looks like nasi campur doesn't it? The BBQ sauce lacked of kick, but I enjoyed the chicken, which was tender and generously given.
Rating: 8/10
Since there's not a lot Thai restaurants in Surabaya, Thai to Me can be one alternative place to eat Thai food. The service is friendly and the food is reasonably priced too.

Authentic Lamian Smile Feb 19, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Kumpul Keluarga

Yesterday, I had a meetup session with my high school mates at Imperial Lamian. This restaurant serves authentic lamian made by in-house chef coming directly from mainland China, thus the quality is surely not a compromise. Moreover, all menus are reasonably priced here.

 
Chinese Tea (Chrysanthemum)
Besides chrysanthemum, they offer some other variants of Chinese tea such as oolong and jasmine. The tea is served on a pot. It's very warming.
Rating: 8/10

 
Cakwe Udang Mayonnaise - IDR18,900
shrimp fritters with mayonnaise
The shrimp is juicy and the fritter is crisply fried, but would be better if they drizzled more mayonnaise on it (I love mayonnaise haha).
Rating: 7/10

 
Hakau - IDR18,900
steamed shrimp dumplings
Hakau is one of my favorite dim sum items. A basket consists of 3 pieces, and I reckon eating it in less than 5 minutes haha. We ordered another basket since we're all in love with it.
Rating: 9/10

 
Yu Xiang Noodle with Shredded Pork - IDR29,600
This one is a type of dry noodle, ordered by my friend. I personally prefer soupy to dry noodle.
Rating: 7/10

 
Noodle with Pork Char Siew in Pork Bone Soup
The handmade noodle is soft, springy, and the pork bone soup is so flavorful. Looks like the char siew is 'baptized' inside the soup haha.
Rating: 8/10

 
Hainan Chicken Rice - IDR36,900
The steamed chicken is a bit too boney for my liking, but I really like the ginger sauce! Even after I had finished the main meal, I was still eating the remaining sauce on its own haha. I don't get why they're so stingy with the veggie, there's just one pathetic slice of it.
Rating: 7/10

 
XO Fried Rice
This is basically fried rice cooked with XO sauce and seafood (shrimp and squid). Big in portion and delicious in taste.
Rating: 8/10

Verdict
The whole experience was okay. Regarding the service, they do need improvement on attentiveness. It was really hard to call the staff for service! Despite this matter, I will still come back since I haven't tried their famous snow ice. Heard that they serve a good one!

Small Cafe, Mediocre Food OK Feb 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Kafe | Burger | Pizza & Pasta

Hoomee is a small cafe located within walking distance to UNAIR, so it's obvious that they're targeting college students and they try to attract them by offering wallet-friendly cafe food.

 

 
The food here is considered cheap, some are even cheaper than the drink

 
Glass jar is used as the table number sign. They should've put something inside the jar as a compliment haha, don't you all agree?

 
Hot Hazelnut Latte - IDR19,000
It looks pale with decent latte art. The hazelnut flavor needs to be stronger as we could barely taste the hazelnut.
Rating: 6/10

 
Frappe Green Tea - IDR22,000
The green tea latte comes in two variants: coffee and non-coffee. I chose the latter and I must admit, I enjoyed it. The green tea flavor is bold but not overpowering.
Rating: 8/10

 
Spaghetti Aglio Olio - IDR20,000
It's such a tiny portion, but you can't really complain for IDR20,000. Speaking about how it tastes, it's mediocre.
Rating: 6/10

 
Fish & Chips - IDR25,000
Fortunately their fish and chips fared better. My first impression upon seeing the plate was that the fish looked like those street-food fritters. Despite its look, taste wise it wasn't bad. The meat is tender and the batter is crispy. I like the lightly-salted fries too. The sauce tasted weird for me, I didn't touch it after the first dip.
Rating: 7/10

Verdict
Overall, it's not a very impressive experience. The food and drink have a lot areas to improve on. The ambiance wasn't very relaxing as well, as we sat next to a long table with a bunch of youngsters talking really loudly. Plus, it's still hot even with aircon inside. Coming back? Err, there are still numbers of cafe out there waiting for my visit...

Store Cum Eatery Smile Feb 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Restaurant | Kencan / Berpasangan | Hang Out

Forgive me from being such an outdated person, but this was my first visit to Carpentier Kitchen, a cafe that had actually been existed since 2013. This cafe shares the same space with ORE Store - besides eating, you can do some shopping (or window shopping) here.

 

 
This is how the store looks like. They sell clothes, footwears, bags and accessories from both indie and global brands like Havaianas and JanSport.

 
Iced Lemon Tea
Nothing special. Just another typical iced lemon tea.
Rating: 7/10

 
Chocolate Milkshake - IDR35,000
The chocolate flavor is thick and not to sweet, just the way I like it.
Rating: 9/10

 
Baked Barbeque Chicken - IDR49,000
signature spicy baked barbeque chicken with choice of mashed potatoes/wedges/french fries
Don't you agree with me that this dish look like ayam penyet? Haha. The chicken is tender and they're generous with the mashed potatoes.
Rating: 8/10

 
All Time Breakfast - IDR39,000
beef bratwurst sausage, omelette/sunny side up, stir fried potato
The omelette is nicely seasoned, the texture resembles scrambled eggs a bit. The sausage is just average, I like the stir fried potato better than the sausage. The potato is sprinkled with seasoning that kinda looks like Boncabe (a brand of chili powder), spicy but still tolerable and turned out to be addictive. It might not be the most complete or the biggest brekkie plate, but at only IDR39,000 it's very very worth it.
Rating: 9/10


Verdict
Carpentier Kitchen is truly a hidden gem: good and affordable food with homey and laid-back atmosphere! The staffs were super friendly and they gladly helped us taking pics here and there. Second visit? Definitely yes!

Good Food, Good Price Smile Feb 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Restaurant


I got excited when my friend brought me here coz she told me Brother Union served tasty food at reasonable prices. This place shares the same building with Holland Bakery, it occupies the second floor to be exact. The atmosphere was bright and filled with sun ray. The space wasn't really big, there weren't many people when we came at 11.30am.

 
Hot Greentea Latte - IDR27,000
For the coffee selection, they use Goldcaff coffee bean. My green tea latte came with a cute bear latte art on top.

 
Barbeque Beef Ribs - IDR55,000
The beef ribs are served with corn on the cob, greens and mashed potatoes. It's decent and filling.

 
Brother Britain Brekkie - IDR40,000
I always love all-day breakfast! Brother Union's version of big brekkie consists of scrambled eggs, baked beans, baked tomato with melted cheese, smoked beef, sausages, sauteed button mushrooms and hashbrown. The scrambled eggs could be a bit runnier. The sauteed mushroom is savory, the sausages are juicy as well. The best part of this dish is the hashbrown. It's perfectly seasoned with a hint of cheese.

Verdict
We spent a total of IDR135,000 for two, still a quite reasonable amount. I will gladly be back here! The atmosphere is cozy and the service is friendly. Just a suggestion, you better come here early before 1pm, because after that, this place will likely be flocked by St. Louis' students and it will be rather tricky to find a parking space.
