Canteen 369

a Different Kind of 369


Ada yang berbeda ketika saya melintasi food area di Surabaya Plasa (Delta Plaza), dahulu spot di dekat toilet mewah lantai dasar ini ditempati oleh resto 369 yang terkenal dengan sup tim ayam dan beragam mie. Alih-alih bertemu nuansa Chinese yang kental, kali ini bertemu dengan suasana bistro modern, dan namanya pun menjadi Canteen 369


If you've been going to Surabaya Plasa (formerly Delta Plaza) for a long time, you'd notice something different near their luxury bathroom, in the ground floor where their food area are located.
In this place, a Chinese restaurant, 369 used to be present, now it's another iteration of the same brand, but with plenty of twists.



Hidangan 369 biasanya memang ada yang mengandung babi, termasuk sup tim ayamnya yang tersohor itu, seingat saya satu-satunya gerai 369 yang tidak menggunakan bahan olahan babi adalah yang di Delta / Surabaya Plaza ini.
Selain untuk memodernkan gerai perubahan ini mungkin sekaligus menghapus keraguan calon pelanggan tentang halal/ tidaknya ragam menu di 369.


The dishes in the previous 369 were usually made using pork, which is a problem for those on halal diet. Despite being the only 369 branch that didn't sell pork, I guess some people would still be cautious about going to the place.
So today I've found out that they modernize the restaurant in to some sort of bistro, and at the same time curbing the Chinese ambiance, which probably would also emphasize on their pork free menus.




Canteen 369 - Canteen Pizza (Rp 33.000)
Salah satu menu fusion yang awalnya sempat terlihat aneh, kita sempat mikir ini Martabak ala tiongkok yang biasanya menjadi menu andalan di 369, ternyata rasanya jauh berbeda. Rasa asin dan gurih khas masakan Chinese berubah menjadi rasa pizza italia, tapi dengan bahan roti yang lebih renyah dibanding pizza konvensional.

One of the favorite dish was the Canteen Pizza. At first we thought it gonna taste like their Chinese counterpart, which are Shanghai style Murtabak (wikipedia link) turns out we were wrong. I usually tend to have bad luck with fusion dish, which taste just strange, this one though is a combo breaker. It tastes nice, tangy, sweet, bright, with a crispy dough, texture and tastes are all there.


Canteen 369 - Mbak Manda & Canteen Pizza (Rp 33.000)

Canteen 369 - Rainbow Slush  (Rp 22.000)


Canteen 369 - Kopi Lanang (Rp 22.000)

Minuman kopinya cukup beragam dan menarik, yang sempat kita coba adalah Kopi Lanang, dan minuman satu ini cukup memuaskan. Begitu mencobanya saya langsung teringat dengan Le Ciel Blue yang menyajikan kopi hitam, diseduh dengan ibrik. Saya masih lebih suka dengan versi LCB, yang memang rasanya lebih mantab, kemungkinan karena diseduh dengan cara yang lebih kompleks


Their coffee based beverage are quite plenty, and the one that I tried were Kopi Lanang (peaberry) and it's really satisfying. Once I tried it, I instantly recalled another place that serves good black coffee, Le Ciel Blue. The LCB coffee is more to my liking though, and it seems much more complicated to brew, using Ibrik, a Turkish coffee maker.



Canteen 369 - Chicken Sandwich

Canteen 369 - Beef Sandwich

Canteen 369 - Volcano Slush (Rp 20.000)
Untuk penggemar resto 369, di sini bakal menemukan beberapa pilihan yang mirip, tapi sedikit dimodifikasi. Karena tidak menggunakan daging babi sama sekali, rasanya bakal sedikit berubah, dan tidak ada wangi yang biasanya didapat dari masakan serupa.
Kalau berkunjung ke sini saya lebih rekomen mencoba menu fusion lain yang baru, rasanya lezat dan bakal bikin lupa dengan menu lama 369. Favorit saya di sini adalah Beef Sandwich (yang memakai mantau besar) dan Canteen Pizza-nya.


If you're a fan of the Restaurant 369, you can get similar Chicken soup and noodle, but with a bit of tone down. It doesn't have pork at all, which include the oil and lard that usually makes Chinese dishes fragrant.
For me the fusion dishes are quite interesting, and I'd opt to try those when visiting here, and just have the old dishes in their other branches that uses pork, which have the genuine taste.
My favorite dish that day were the Beef Sandwich (made with chinese bun) and the Canteen Pizza.
