Konig - Surabaya

Konig Cafe & Bar

Konig Surabaya


Penggemar Kafe kekinian sekarang tidak perlu repot-repot ke Surabaya Barat untuk mencari tempat hangout, di daerah Dharmahusada ada banyak kafe dengan desain yang menarik dan rasa yang mumpuni. Salah satunya adalah Konig ini, letaknya di tikungan Klampis dan Kertajaya Indah, bertetangga dengan Comunal dan Bakso Kepala Sapi.

Surabaya city now have plenty of up & coming Cafes. This kind of eatery usually are located in Western part of Surabaya, but nowadays we got plenty of good option everywhere, including here in Eastern part of the city, Dharmahusada area.
This particular cafe I'm visiting is Konig, which is located near Bakso Kepala Sapi, and right next to a similar newly opened cafe, Comunal.

Saya sempat menulis di atas kalau ada teman yang bilang rasa masakan di sini biasa-biasa saja. Masakan yang dia order dari menu saat itu adalah Chicken Bierkase dan salah satu Big Shares menu, untuk kunjungan kali ini saya menghindari dua menu tersebut.

I did mention about my friends being underwhelmed with the food here, I remembered their order being the Chicken Bierkase and one of the Big Shares menu, so I'd skip on those two for the time being.

Konig - Southern California Burger (Rp 45.000)

Saya tidak berharap banyak dari kunjungan kali ini, berhubung ada beberapa teman yang bilang rasa makanan di kafe ini termasuk biasa saja, beberapa juga hanya mencoba minumannya saja. Setelah pengalaman di kafe serupa di Surabaya Barat, saya sudah curiga bakal ketemu makanan hambar lagi, ternyata di sini olahan kokinya lebih cocok dengan selera saya.

I didn't expect much from this cafe, since I've heard friends mentioning the food aren't that great, and I've had a plain and bland tasting cafe food recently in West Surabaya, another cafe whose initial is also K. Turns out Konig serves up pretty decent tasting dishes.

Sempat ditanya ingin telur setengah matang atau matang, setelah memilih setengah matang, hasilnya keluar matang, tapi rasanya tetap ok sih, jadi tidak terlalu masalah. Saya tulis di sini supaya pembaca tidak terlalu berharap banyak kalau ditanya tentang tingkat kematangan telur.


We were asked how we'd like the egg on the burger, we asked for a runny sunny side up, but we got a pretty firm sunny side up. The taste was still ok though, so it's not a big deal. Just want to mention it here so you guys don't get your hope too high when being asked about the egg.



Konig - Banger & Mash (Rp 70.000)
Banger & Mash alias kombinasi dua sosis + mash potato ini juga lumayan enak tastenya. Saus thailandnya terlalu manis untuk selera saya, tapi tinggal minta Tobasco sudah banyak membantu menyesuaikan rasanya. Harganya sedikit tinggi dibanding burgernya, entah apa memang sosisnya ada kualitas khusus, saya sih tidak terlalu bisa merasakan kalau ada yang special.


The Banger & Mash was pretty good, I disliked the Thai chilli sauce which is too sweet for the dish, but putting up some tobasco sauce does the trick.
Price-wise I don't know why the dish is considerably more expensive than the burger, since I didn't taste anything special about the sausages, that being said, it's still a nicely cooked meal.

I found it easier to ask for condiments and such in this cafe, compared to the other K. It's not that they're more skilled or anything, the eatery layout which is only one floored building makes it much easier for us to get service.



Konig - Strawberry Almond (Rp 37.000)
Walau namanya cafe and bar, pilihan minuman beralkohol di sini cukup terbatas. Cocktail tidak tersedia sama sekali, hanya ada bir dan cider (minuman beralkohol dari apel)

Though named cafe and bar, the alcoholic beverage are pretty limited here. Don't expect to get cocktails since they don't serve any, the current selections are beer and ciders.


Konig Surabaya - Lemon Green Tea Pancake (Rp 35.000)
Satu menu pesanan yang rasanya tidak sesuai harapan adalah dessert (yang dilabeli favorit) di Konig. Lemon Green Tea Pancake. Rasa saus (cranberry?) nya lumayan enak, platingnya juga cantik, sayangnya rasa pancakenya sangat kering dan tebal. Serasa karton manila digulung dicelup sirup.

The one dish we didn't liked were this dessert, which was labelled as favorite in the menu. Lemon Green Tea Pancake, with (cranberry?) sauce. We liked the sauce, we loved the plating, too bad the pancake was dry and tough. It's like eating rolled hemp paper, albeit with a good sauce.
