Jamoo - Flavors of Taiwan (Shangrila Surabaya)

Taiwanese Cuisine Buffet

Flavors of Taiwan, Jamoo - Beef Noodle Soup

Minggu lalu kami mendapatkan undangan dari Shangrila & mbak Manda (www.sijagomakan.com) untuk event launching Flavors of Taiwan di Jamoo. Acaranya dari tanggal 22-31 Mei, jadi sisa beberapa hari terakhir untuk menikmati menu spesial di Jamoo.


Last week we were invited for an event by Shangrila Hotel & Manda from www.sijagomakan.com for the Flavors of Taiwan event in Jamoo restaurant. It's available from 22-31'st of May, so I'm a bit rushing this post, to spread the words.

Kita datang agak pagian dan antusias untuk mencoba hidangan Taiwan ini. Sempat penasaran apa yang bakal menjadi primadona. Sempat terbersit 'Tahu Busuk' ala Taiwan, tapi kalau ditaruh di suasana hotel, tamunya bakal mabuk saat menghirup aromanya yang aduhai


We got here a bit early and eager to sample the dishes. We were quite curious on what the prominent Taiwanese dishes featured. 'Stinky Tofu' comes in mind, which is a popular street food there, but in a hotel ambiance, the smell would be intolerable.

Jamoo - Flavors of Taiwan Cooking Demo

Di awal acara ada demo masak dari Chef George Yu. Hidangan yang diperagakan cara masaknya adalah Codfish. Ikan nya sebelum ditumis sebentar di atas wajan sudah di kukus terlebih dahulu, proses masak di sini lebih ke arah mengolah bumbunya, yang menggunakan bahan kacang dan bawang.

At the start of the event, we had the opportunity to see a cooking demo from Chef Geroge Yu. He cooked a delicious Codfish for our lunch. The fish is steamed beforehand, and the wok is mainly used to prepare the accompanying sauce, which consists of peanuts and garlic among many other ingredients.

Flavors of Taiwan, Jamoo - Beef Noodle Soup
Dari semua hidangan di atas, favorit kita adalah Beef Noodle Soup dan Shihlin Deep Fried Chicken. Dua hidangan yang tampaknya sangat sederhana, tapi untuk Beef Noodle Soup ini ternyata membutuhkan persiapan masak yang paling lama dan rumit.


Of all this dishes, our favorite were the Beef Noodle Soup and Shihlin Deep Fried Chicken. Two dishes that seems simple, but as it turns out, the Beef Noodle Soup is the most intricate dish to prepare.



Jamoo, Flavors of Taiwan - Shihlin Deep Fried Chicken
Ayam Taiwan versi mewah ini citarasanya jauh berbeda dari yang biasa kita icipi di Mall-mall Surabaya, seperti Xi Men Ding, Pok-pok atau Chubby. Biasanya ayam 'penunggu' mall dagingnya tipis, dengan tepung yang tebal, kalau hidangan satu ini kebalikannya. Tepung tipis dan crunchy dengan daging yang tebal & juicy.


This is the posh version of the Taiwanese Chicken we'd often find in Surabaya's mall. Some popular ones are Xi Men Ding, Pok-pok or Chubby. Those mall chickens are usually sliced super thin with thick breading, while here it's the opposite. It have a succulent thick juicy meat inside and a thin crunchy breading on the outside.




Flavors of Taiwan - Fried Shrimp

Rasa masakannya enak semua, relatif lebih lembut kalau dibandingkan dengan hidangan Chinese Food Surabaya yang biasanya dominan citarasa Kanton.
Omong-omong Kanton, selain bisa merasakan Taiwanese Flavors di Shangrila, ada juga Cantonese Cuisine event di Sheraton, yang jadwalnya juga hampir sama, berakhir tanggal 31. Chinese Food lovers bulan ini mendapat banyak suguhan.
Review event Sheraton menyusul di blog ini besok, so stay tuned :)


All the food were nice, and interesting too. The flavors are milder than the typical Chinese Food you'd get in Surabaya, which are heavily influenced by Cantonese Style cooking.
By the way, while we're talking about Cantonese cooking, there's another event of Cantonese Cuisine in Sheraton Hotel, which is located next to Tunjungan Plasa in the city center. The schedule is also ending at 31'st of May.
Chinese food lovers are in for a treat this month, be sure to sample them both if you love this kind of dishes.
The review on Sheraton hotel is coming up tomorrow, so please stay tuned :)
