LCB - Surabaya

Le Ciel Bleu 

Lamb Shank - LCB

Le Ciel Bleu, salah satu resto yang berada di kompleks yang sama dengan toko furnitur ternama, graha Melandas di daerah Graha Family. Menu yang ditawarkan kebanyakan western, dengan sedikit asian influence. Tempatnya cantik dan menarik, kesan awal saat ke sini harganya bakal tinggi, ternyata harganya tidak beda dengan boncafe di sebelahnya, sebagian malah lebih terjangkau.


Le Ciel Bleu is an interesting restaurant in Western Surabaya area. It seems like a posh place to eat, with an elaborate decor and such, but it turns out to be quite the opposite. It's even cheaper than Boncafe, a casual dining place which usually caters to simpler clientele, but price-wise it's similar to this restaurant.







Di bagian depannya ada spot untuk sesi foto, di sini biasanya dikenakan Rp 600.000 untuk pemakaian foto prewedding. Tapi tidak perlu khawatir, kalau untuk foto selfie sejenak saja bisa, aturannya tidak terlalu kaku untungnya.

Right after entering the main door, you'll find this pretty table in the middle of the restaurant. It doubles as a photo session spot. Usually it costs Rp 600.000 to use the place for a prewedding portrait, but the rule isn't that strict, they'll waive it if you're just taking some simple selfies in this booth.





Kita diundang ke sini pada hari biasa, jadi saat itu tidak terlalu sesak dan bisa sedikit leluasa untuk foto-foto.

We were invited here on a weekday, hence the place wasn't as crowded, and we got to take some interesting shots of the place.

Ada sebagian kecil area di lantai dua, yang cocok untuk pasangan, karena mejanya kebanyakan untuk berdua, dan bisa menikmati pemandangan kegiatan resto di bawahnya.


There's a small space in the second floor which is suited for couples, since most of the seating are for two people, and you can relax here while looking at all the excitement bellow.

Kalau di resto lain biasanya hanya ada cocktail bar, di sini ada coffee station juga. Tempat bikin berbagai olahan kopi yang kreatif.


While cocktail bar is the norm in such place, a coffee station is rare to see. Here's where all the interesting brews are made.

Cotton Candy - LCB
Cotton Candy machine di sini selain untuk snack dalam kemasan gelas plastik ini, juga untuk pendamping beberapa minuman, salah satunya juga untuk kopi.

This cotton candy machine is here not only to make this adorable snack on a glass, it's also for various beverages, one of them is this interesting coffee posted bellow

Coffee by Papi Kopi

Satu yang baru di LCB adalah Papi Kopi, pilihan berbagai menu kopi menarik. Selain untuk penggemar berat kopi, beberapa menu juga disesuaikan dengan lidah tamu yang tidak gemar kopi, salah satunya Coffee with Cotton Candy ini. Rasa kopinya nikmat, tanpa terasa terlalu berat, untuk pengganti gula dipakai Cotton Candy.


A new concept in LCB is Papi Kopi, which serves various selections of coffee. It's not catering solely to die-hard coffee fans, some menu are made for those who are not in to coffee taste, but interested to try new beverages, one of them is this Coffee with Cotton Candy. The beans used were mild bodied and less acid than most coffee beans, making the drink a bit light but still tastes nice.

Black Coffee made with Ibrik
Jarang bertemu dengan kedai kopi yang menyediakan alat Ibrik, kemungkinan karena prosesnya yang cukup ribet. Baristanya perlu cukup ahli untuk bisa menghasilkan kopi nikmat, ada banyak komponen yang perlu dikontrol, termasuk besar api, selain takaran kopi dan cara seduhnya yang rumit.
Tapi hasilnya benar-benar nikmat, cocok untuk penggemar kopi. Berhubung mirip cara buat moka pot (yang saya paling ga cocok) sempat curiga hasilnya bakal asam, ternyata tidak ada asamnya sama sekali. Highly recomended untuk yang suka kopi hitam.


It's rare for me to see a coffee shop that uses Ibrik as a coffee maker. Probably due to the intricate process, I think this is one of the hardest coffee maker to master, since you need to control multiple things while brewing the coffee. 
But the end result really justified all the hassle of making Ibrik Coffee. I didn't have high hope at first, since it looks similar to Moka Pot (which I despise) which gives acidic taste to the coffee. Turns out this particular brew is mild, no overwhelming acidity like coffee made with moka pot.




Dengan Ibrik, pertama gula dibuat menjadi karamel dahulu, baru kopi diseduh dan rempah-rempahnya dimasukkan dan didihkan kembali.

Using Ibrik, first they caramelized the sugar, afterward ground coffee and spices are added and brewed again.

Makanan yang kita coba adalah escargot dan Lamb Shank LCB, rasanya cukup menarik, terutama Lamb Shank alias steak daging Domba yang relatif jarang bisa ditemui di Surabaya.
Ada kemiripan rasa dengan kambing, tapi lebih lembut dan tidak ada bau tajamnya.


The food we tried were Escargot and Lamb Shank, both tastes quite nice, specially the lamb shank which is quite rare in Surabaya, where goat is usually a lot more popular and readily available. The lamb shank has the same deliciousness of goat dishes, but without the gamy taste and smell.


LCB - Escargot & Asparagus (Rp 34.000)

Sebagian besar harga yang ditawarkan cukup kompetitif, kalau menilik kelas restonya. Hanya saja tidak semuanya setara resto serupa, escargot salah satunya. Rasanya masih kalah dengan beberapa penyedia escargot lainnya, tapi harganya memang tidak sampai separuh dari kompetitornya. Jadi cukup menarik untuk dicoba.
Saat review ditulis ada beberapa promo menggunakan kartu kredit BCA.


Most of the menu are priced competitively, especially for the kind of restaurant. Not all menu are great tasting though, one of them is the escargot. It's a bit dry compared to other restaurant in it's calss, but priced at half of them, can't complain much. An interesting place to try.
There's also additional discount offered for BCA credit card users.
