Bakwan Juen - Pasar Atum Surabaya

For the Cwi Mie Lover

Cwi Mie Tite - Bakwan Juen

Saya biasanya paling malas ke Pasar Atum karena parkirnya lumayan susah dan kondisinya agak acak kadut, tapi biasanya dari dulu ada saja yang ngajak ke sini. Nah kali ini saya sedikit lebih niat ke 'mall' satu ini karena ada Cwi Mie baru yang lumayan enak.


I usually tries to weasel my way out of going to this mall. Time to time there's always invites to go here, either from relative, friend or spouse. The reason why can be read bellow.

This time though, I was not as reluctant, since I found a nice place which serves good Cwi Mie.



 Why Going Here Sucks...

Pasar Atum - Fallout Mall

Mall satu ini dari dulu memang tidak terlalu rapi, tapi saat terakhir ke sini, saya sempat terperangah melihatnya. Gamer yang pernah main fallout pasti merasa familier dengan pemandangan di pasar atum ini.
Namanya sih cocok, Pasar Atom yang mirip dengan fallout, cerita tentang AS pasca hancur karena Bom Atom.


If you've ever played Fallout games, which are available on PC and console, you'd be reminiscent of the game when seeing the state of this mall.
Piles of junk and debris litter the entrance to the mall from the parking lot. It's just plain nasty and unhygienic. 
A bit ironic that the mall is named Atom Mall, while fallout depicts post apocalyptic USA, destroyed by Atom Bomb.

Meskipun mallnya kadang tidak rapi, tempat ini populer sebagai destinasi shopping.  Pengunjung Mall kebanyakan perempuan, yang mencari fashion item menarik, biasanya bukan branded, tapi harga dan (kadang) kualitasnya tidak kalah dari Department Store ternama.
Selain fashion, tempat makan di sini juga cukup populer, tapi jangan berharap suasana yang nyaman, karena biasanya ruang yang disediakan cukup sempit. Walau banyak keunikan di atas, mall satu ini tetap menjadi salah satu jujugan wisata kuliner dan belanja yang amat populer di Surabaya.


Despite the decrepit state of the mall, it's still popular. The clientele are mostly ladies, where they can browse for the boutique and non-bigbranded fashion items, and then dine at the eateries around. Food stalls here are a bit cramped, so if you really like a good ambiance, you'd be better off going to other malls such as Tunjungan Plasa or Galaxy Mall.

 Bakwan Juen 


Bakwan Juen



Bakwan Juen Surabaya

Walau namanya Bakwan Juen, pilihan hidangannya tidak hanya varian bakwan dan siomay. Ada Cwi Mie, Mie Tite, Yong To Fu dan banyak menu lain.
Rasa bakwannya cukup enak, mengingatkan saya dengan bakwan Koko yang ada di dekat UK Petra. Untuk Bakwan dan Siomay nya sendiri sih saya masih lebih suka di Bakwan Koko, tapi rasa Bakwan di sini juga lumayan enak.


Though the name is Bakwan, the dishes weren't all about Bakwan and Shu Mai, there's also Cwi Mie, Mie Tite and Yong To Fu, also plenty of other selections.
The Bakwan or meatball is quite nice, reminds me of bakwan Koko near Petra University. I still like the Bakwan Koko versions of Bakwan and Shumai, but bakwan Juen isn't bad either.



Bakwan Juen Siomay / Shu Mai (Rp 6.000)

Siomaynya cukup enak, tapi menu favorit kita di sini malah hidangan Cwi Mie Ayamnya. Rasanya pas, ada aroma wangi dan memakai mie yang kenyal. Sayang berhubung terlalu seru makan, sampai lupa foto tersendiri. Foto Cwi Mienya hanya ada satu di atas, pose rame-rame dengan banyak hidangan lain. 

Shu mai and the Bakwan taste nice, but our own fave dish were the noodles, specially the Cwi Mie Noodle. Cwi Mie itself is similar to wonton noodles you'd see in plenty of Chinese eatery.
The other noodle dish we tried were the Mie Tite, which uses pig feet. 



Shumai (simplified Chinese烧卖traditional Chinese燒賣pinyinshāomài), also romanized as siu mai or shaomai, also called pork dumplings (although often other types of dumplings could also be filled with pork), is a type of traditional Chinese dumplingserved as dim sum.
