Arum Manis Bumi Hotel (Ex Hyatt)

Bumi Hotel Coffee Shop

Nasi Goreng - Bumi Hyatt Hotel

Setelah sempat mencoba lunch buffet di Arum Manis dan Kizahashi tempo hari (http://www.foodgrapher.com/2013/06/bumi-hotel-surabayade-lunch-buffet.html) kali ini saya mencoba hidangan ala carte di resto satu ini.
Saat ke sini masih ada hidangan lunch buffet nya, jadi saya sempatkan berkeliling untuk mengambil beberapa foto hidangan buffet nya.



After trying out their lunch buffet offer (http://www.foodgrapher.com/2013/06/bumi-hotel-surabayade-lunch-buffet.html) this time I try their ala carte dishes.
Since the buffet was still available during my visit here, I took the chance to took some photos of their buffet.

 Cake - Arum Manis Buffet at Bumi Hotel Surabaya






Ala Carte Dish


Hotel Bumi ini adalah salah satu hotel pertama di Surabaya dengan standard bintang lima (saat itu masih bernama hotel Hyatt).
Tahun-tahun sebelumnya, saya pernah mencoba makan di Arum Manis ini, tapi tidak terlalu cocok dengan rasa masakannya. Kali pertama mencoba lagi resto ini setelah beberapa tahun adalah saat promo lunch buffet di atas, lebih karena tertarik dengan Kizahashi awalnya.
Ternyata setelah dicoba, hidangan buffet di resto ini sudah meningkat pesat kualitas rasanya dibanding saat terakhir saya mencoba. Berbekal pengalaman memuaskan di lunch buffet, saya kali ini mencoba hidangan ala cartenya bersama beberapa teman.


Hotel Bumi is one of the first five star hotel in Surabaya (back then it was called Hyatt hotel)
Years before I've tried their Arum Manis cafe and wasn't really pleased with the standards.
I went back here again after a few years, when trying their lunch buffet promotion, where they offer not just 1 restaurant but 3 options in one go. This time around, I found the standard have improved quite dramatically, hence after trying their lunch buffet, I was intrigued to try their ala carte dishes.


Krupuk / Cracker - Melindjo

Selama menunggu makanan tiba, di meja kita disediakan krupuk melinjo untuk snack pengganjal perut. Mungkin kalau saat itu mayoritas pesanannya hidangan barat, melinjonya bakal diganti roti dan mentega.


While waiting for the dish to arrive, we were served a bowl of Melindjo crakcer, which is quite a nice feat, where they match the dish with the complimentary snack. I'd reckon we'd get the standard bread and butter if we'd ordered some western cuisine.



Arum Manis Main Course - Nasi Goreng

Nasi Gorengnya tersaji dengan menarik, dengan dua tusuk sate ayam. Hidangan satu ini buat saya cukup eye catching. Acar yang disajikan berbeda dengan yang biasanya kita dapat di restoran indonesia, menggunakan serutan lobak dan timun seperti yang sering kita temui di restoran jepang.


Their fried rice is quite interesting, served with two skewers of chicken satay. This dish has some unique touches, where they serve the egg in stylish manner, not to mention the pretty noodled radish and cucumber for pickle.



Arum Manis Main Course - Rawon



Rawonnya tidak kalah mentereng, disajikan dalam wadah yamg menarik, porsinya juga lumayan besar.
Untuk menjaga rawon tetap panas, penyajiannya digabung dengan anglo jawa di bawah mangkok rawonnya.


Their Rawon dish is served in lavish style, in a big bowl, with anglo (small javanese boiler) keeping it piping hot.

Arum Manis Dessert - Poffertjes


Hidangan ala carte di atas berkisar Rp 50.000 - Rp 120.000, untuk penikmat makanan yang mempertimbangkan value, bakal lebih menarik untuk mencoba buffetnya, karena dengan menambah sedikit sudah bisa mendapat lebih banyak pilihan makanan.
Untuk standard hotel bintang lima, harganya cukup masuk akal dan kualitasnya juga lumayan. Layak dicoba, tapi bukan termasuk istimewa.



This Ala Carte dishes varies from Rp 50.000 - Rp 120.000 in price. If you're a value oriented or budget conscious consumer, you'd be better of spending a bit more to get the buffet, where you;d get more bang for your buck.
The cuisine here is quite nice, price-wise not steep for five star hotel standards, with food that taste and looks equally nice. Worth a try though not particularly special.
