Excelso - East Coast Mall [Surabaya]

Popular Indonesian Cafe

Excelso Dates Frappio


Excelso sudah lama menjadi café paling populer di Surabaya, ulasan sebelumnya ada di :
Excelso TP IV
Excelso Galaxy Mall 2
Akhir-akhir ini karena semakin banyaknya promo di kafe ini, menunya pun semakin tipis. Hal ini sebetulnya saya apresiasi, karena dengan menu yang stream-lined akan mengakibatkan efisiensi harga dan kendali rasanya lebih baik.


Excelso had been one of the most popular coffee in Surabaya, I’ve frequently reviewed it in this blog. Here are some of that posts :
Excelso TP IV
Excelso Galaxy Mall 2
Lately theire menu have been minimalized to about half it former menu, which I assume was due to many promotions that they have. I find it as a good solution to streamline the kitchen, which usually equates to better quality control and pricing.

[Pasuruan] Nasi Punel Hj. Dahlia

Nasi Punel

Nasi Punel Hj Dahlia


Bulan puasa lalu, saya bersama 3 orang teman mengunjungi Pasuruan dalam perjalanan ke proyek villa di Tretes. Karena bulan puasa, banyak tempat makan yang tutup, rencana awal kita mencoba nasi punel Hajah Lin yang letaknya sebelum Hj Dahlia kalau dari arah Surabaya.
Sayangnya saat sampai di tempat tujuan, ternyata tujuan pertama kita tutup, untungnya ada hidangan serupa yang buka saat bulan puasa, Nasi Punel Hj Lin.


Few month ago on fasting month, we went to Pasuruan while en route to Tretes, on a business trip. Having come at fasting time, a lot of eatery were closed, and unfortunately so is the Hj Lin, our first choice for Nasi Punel. A few minute down the road, we found a Nasi Punel eatery that's open, named Hj Dahlia's Nasi Punel.

Naked Crab - Seafood without Fuss

Naked Crab Surabaya

Naked Crab - Surabaya


Kota Surabaya sekarang menjadi jujugan untuk penggemar hidangan laut, di jalan Manyar Kertoarjo sendiri ada lebih setengah lusin resto yang menyajikan seafood. Berhubung sudah demikian banyak, pendatang baru yang juga mengusung seafood berusaha menyajikan sensasi makan yang berbeda dengan kebanyakan resto seafood lain.

Surabaya City is a city for seafood lovers, along the Manyar Kertoarjo Street alone there are more than a dozen restaurant that serves seafood. Since there's plenty of eateries serving seafood already, newcomers had to do something innovative for their service.

Dante Coffee - Zoom Hotel Surabaya

  Popular Taiwanese Cafe

Dante Coffee

Setelah lama tidak kelihatan geliatnya di Surabaya, Dante Cafe muncul lagi di
Hotel Zoom yang terletak di jalan Raya Jemurasi. Dahulu kafenya menjamur di setiap mall menengah ke atas di Surabaya, beberapa di antaranya Tunjungan Plaza, Galaxy Mall dan Ciputra World.

Kali ini cabang barunya dibuka di luar mall, bersebelahan dengan zoom Hotel.



The last time I saw Dante Coffee chain was at 2012 where their cafe was still sprawling all over Surabaya's upscale malls. It was abruptly closed down and changed to Gekko Cafe, which perplexed me, since I found Dante Coffee was had a brisk business and almost always packed with visitor. which have it's branches in Tunjungan Plaza, Galaxy Mall and Ciputra World to name a few. Now They're opening a new chain in Hotel Zoom


Dante Coffee - Spaghetti Roasted Vegetables (Rp 39.000)


Di bawah ini petikan sejarah Dante Cafe diambil dari websitenya :
Dante Coffee berasal dari Taiwan yang didirikan oleh Ibu Sophie Fang pada tanggal 12 November 1993 di kota Taipei, Taiwan. Pada saat itu kopi bukanlah hal yang umum dikonsumsi masyarakat Taiwan dikarenakan harga yang tinggi. Dengan mendirikan Dante coffee shop ibu Sophie Fang berharap Dante dapat menyediakan kopi yang berkwalitas namun dapat terjangkau oleh masyarat luas.
