This place have many selection of alcoholic beverages, but we had been having underwhelming cocktails around Surabaya and Bali (read about it here), so we decided to just skip the cocktail and order soft drinks. I'd wait until my next trip abroad to order a decent cocktail.
Tempatnya cukup menarik, salah satu daya tarik utama tempat ini adalah suasana tempat makan yang eksotik dan mewah. Pencahayaannya cukup temaram, cocok untuk yang ingin suasana pub dan cocok juga untuk dating nights. Jika ingin tempat yang lebih cerah dan cocok untuk keluarga mungkin Chicago lebih cocok.
Ambiance is what attracts people to dine here
Hacienda has a dimly lit dining area and a cozy bar with bar stools and all the amenities. It's suitable for a date night and people looking for a comfy place to savor cocktails. It feels cozy since there aren't many people around, if it were crowded, you'd get that dive bar atmosphere which some people would like (not me though :p). For a family night out, Chicago next door seems to be more suitable.

Chimichanga is a deep-fried burrito that is popular in Southwestern U.S. cuisine and the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Sonora
A burrito is a type of Mexican and Tex-Mex food, consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling
We ordered Chimicanga and Burrito for dinner, the taste were quite similar, hence we didn't know what the differences were. Turns out Chimicangas is actually a deep fried burrito. We never tried an authentic ones, but the one we had here weren't crunchy like what I imagine a deep fried burrito would be.

The dishes we tried were decent, mediocre tasting food. There's nothing special, though it's still palatable. For the price it offered, we found it a tad underwhelming. There's plenty of other nice cafe / restaurant that offers better tasting dishes for the same price. Having said that, the dining experience compile of both food taste and atmosphere, on the later part, 1914 has quite a feat.
