Depot Siantar Mulyosari

  Simple Genuine Chinese Cuisine

Depot Siantar Mulyosari - Surabaya



Daerah Medan dan sekitarnya termasuk daerah dengan banyak populasi etnis Tionghoa, dan pusat kuliner Cina yang terkenal.
Banyak perantauan dari pulau Sumatra membuka depot / resto bertema Medan dan Siantar di Surabaya, salah satunya yang baru saya coba adalah depot siantar ini.
Walaupun sama Masakan Cina, tapi ada ciri khas rasa yang tidak bisa ditemui di resto Cina standard Surabaya.


Medan is a city in Sumatra Island, it's one of those rare city that's populated by ethnic Chinese, along with other ethnicity such as Batak and Javanese. They have a long culinary history, which are quite influential to the Chinese cooking style in Surabaya and the whole country.
This cooking style divert much from the Javanese Island where peranakan


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pematangsiantar
Most of Pematangsiantar's food styles are inherited from Batak and Chinese traditional food. Foods such as saksang (pork cooked in its own blood), roasted pork, and tuak (an alcoholic beverage made from sugar palm and sometimes from coconut) from the Batak people are very popular.
Chinese food restaurants can also be found across the city. One of the very popular local delicacies inherited from Chinese food is "Mie Pangsit" (Wonton Noodle).
Some food from West Sumatera is also quite popular, especially nasi padang (various dishes with rice), and sate padang (spicy satay, usually eaten with rice-cake).

Halim Restaurant - Kertajaya



Old Style Chinese Restaurant With Loads of Following

Halim Restaurant

Ketika makan di Meat Shop & Gourmet, salah satu teman saya yang fans Halim resto sempat menanyakan ke saya "kok blog-nya belum masukin resto Halim?"
Akhirnya beberapa minggu kemudian kita sempatkan berempat ke resto favoritnya ini, ternyata cukup ramai tempatnya. Saat itu hari Rabu malam, kalau biasanya pada hari biasa tempat makan serupa sepi, di sini tetap ramai.


A few weeks ago while dining with a group of friends at Meat Shop & Gourmet, one of my friends blurted out asking why my blog haven't reviewed this restaurant. Turns out he was an avid fan, and he'd love to have his favorite restaurant reviewed.
So we did, here we are 4 guys eating in Halim Restaurant. It was Wednesday night, and the place was packed

Antica Osteria Surabaya

For The Pasta Lovers


Antica Osteria - Surabaya


Lokasi resto ini terletak di jalan Sriwijaya, di antara pasar Keputran dan jalan Polisi Istimewa. Di lokasi yang sama dengan kafe Cangkir Sawunggaling. Untuk yang sekedar lewat mungkin tidak melihat resto satu ini, karena posisinya tusuk sate dan dekat dengan belokan ke arah jalan Keputran. Saya setiap minggu beberapa kali melewati tempat ini, tapi tidak menyadari ada resto, baru setelah diajak teman berkunjung ke sini dan mulai mencari baru sadar ada resto menarik di tempat ini.

Berikut ada review yang lebih baru di sini  : http://www.foodgrapher.com/2014/04/antica-osteria-2014.html

This restaurant is located in Sriwijaya street, near Sriwijaya Fried Chicken, in a road near Polisi Istimewa street and Keputran Market. If you're not paying particular attention while passing by, most likely you'll miss the place, since it's in the intersection and right on the turn of the road, so it would be hard to look around.

Here's the lastes review of the restaurant : http://www.foodgrapher.com/2014/04/antica-osteria-2014.html
