Porong Wei - Chinese Restaurant

The Famous Ote-Ote

Ote-Ote Porong Wei

Porong Wei, salah satu destinasi wisata favorit saya saat perjalanan ke luar kota adalah saat bisa mampir ke Ote-ote Porong di jalan tol Gempol. Post kali ini bakal banyak nostalgia karena memang histori resto satu ini sudah cukup lama.
Dulu sempat kangen berat dengan ote-ote ini saat krisis lumpur Lapindo, karena jalan tol gempol menjadi jarang dilalui lagi sejak ada jalan alternatif.
Untungnya tidak berapa lama setelahnya bermunculan gerai Porong Wei di Surabaya dan Malang.


Back when I was a child, one of the highlight of going out of town for me was having the chance to buy this famous Ote-Ote in the Gempol Highway.
Too bad there were the infamous Lapindo incident by Bakrie's group that led to the demise of Gempol Highway and suronding Porong area.
Thankfully the Porong Wei group didn't just sit by idly, they create opportunity from this crisis by opening up plenty of branches in Surabaya and then Malang.






Porong Wei - Grand City 
Saya ingat pertama kali tahu Porong Wei buka di Surabaya malah dari teman-teman di Unair, berhubung saat itu belum banyak Chinese restaurant yang menjajakan hidangan yang tanpa babi.

I remember back in my college days, first time finding out that Porong Wei was opening shop in Surabaya was from my colleagues in Airlangga Univ. Which is a bit peculiar since they usually prefer halal cuisine (seldom found in Chinese restaurant). Turns out that Porong Wei wasn't using pork.



Loads of promotion

Ada beberapa promo yang ditawarkan di sini, terakhir saya berkunjung ada promo Mega card tiap hari jumat bisa beli 2 dapat 3 menu, dan ada lagi promo 7 of choices di hari lain, yang saya tidak terlalu tahu

There are some promotions here, last I went here it was Mega credit card that would nail you a buy 2 get 3 on fridays, and some 7 of choices promo which I'm not really sure what it constitutes for.


Angsio Bibir Ikan - Rp 75.000 (什锦冷盘 / Braised Fish Lips)
Angsio bibir ikan ini salah satu menu favorit saya. Dibuat dari bibir ikan, rasanya mirip dengan otot sapi, tapi tidak ada lemak dan lebih halus. Kuahnya berupa saus asam manis dengan ada pedas sedikit.


This is one of my favorite menu here, it's Braised Fish Lips. Made from real fish lips, it kinda taste like beef tendon, without the gamy taste and a delicate texture. The sauce is sweet and sour, with a bit of spiciness.

Kepiting Pasir Emas 
Menu kali ini termasuk favorit semua, setelah Angsio di atas, Kepiting Pasir Emas yang dibuat dari kepiting soka ini juga wajib dicoba. Rasanya ajib, teksturnya enak dan pas digabung dengan balutan tepung dan telur asin.


The menu posted here is all the favorites, after the Braised Fish Lips above, my second best fave is this Gold Sand Crabs (Kepiting Pasir Emas) which is made from soft shell crab. It tastes delicious, the crab texture blends well with the salted fish egg.



Tiram Goreng - Porong Wei (Rp 65.000)
Tiram Goreng telur di sini cukup unik, beda dengan Tiram Goreng Telur yang biasanya mirip telur dadar biasa diberi tiram, di sini hidangannya crunchy dan lezat, beda  jauh dengan Oyster Omelette yang lain, dan katanya ini adalah menu best seller di resto.

This Fried Oyster dish is quite unique, it's different from the usual fried egg with oyster or Oyster Omelette which are usually soggy, this one is crunchy and delicious. It's one of the best seller dish in the restaurant.

Baby Kaylan Bawang Putih - Porong Wei (Rp 27.500)
Menu sayurnya yang favorit di sini adalah Baby Kaylan dengan Bawang Putih ini, dimasak dengan pas, tidak terlalu matang hingga layu. Warnanya tetap hijau cerah dan renyah saat dihidangkan di meja.

For the vegetable dish, the best seller in here is this Baby Kaylan with garlic, it's cooked perfectly, not overcooked at all. It still lush green when served in the table.
