Swiss Bel Inn Manyar

3 Star Hotel with 5 Star Menu


Swiss Bel Inn - Manyar Kertoarjo (Surabaya)
Tidak perlu ke hotel bintang lima untuk mendapatkan makanan berkualitas dan enak. Sekarang ada alternatif yang cukup ok. Lokasinya ada di Surabaya Timur, yang memang paceklik hotel bintang lima, Swiss Bel Inn Manyar.

You needn't go to a five star hotel anymore for a good quality dinner date. There's a nice alternative in a 3 star hotel, located in East Surabaya area Swiss Bel Inn Manyar.
There's no five star hotel in this part of town, among 3 star hotels, this particular ones seems to be the best.

Tempatnya cukup menarik dekornya, nuansanya temaram cenderung gelap. Sayang sangking gelapnya kalau tidak bawa HP atau kamera yang gahar di cahaya minim, bakal susah mau selfie atau foto makanannya.


The ambiance is quite nice, it has a faint lighting which boost the romantic moods. Too bad since it's so dim, you'd need to have a camera / phone that excels on low light.

Ada acara membuat cerutu di sini, diadakan oleh PT Wismilak. Walaupun saya bukan perokok, tapi  ada nuansa nostalgia yang kental dari cerutu, karenanya saya cukup senang menjadikannya obyek foto.

There's a hand rolling of cigar in the same event, held by Wismilak cigarette company. Though I'm not a fan of smoking, but there's a quaint nostalgic feel to it that makes it a joy to photograph.

Setelah dilinting, cerutunya ditaruh di dalam kotak untuk menekan cerutunya. Perlu sehari semalam di dalam kotaknya sebelum bisa dikonsumsi.

After being rolled, the cigar needs to be pressed in a box above. It need to be there for a day before it's ready to be lit.

Swiss Bel Inn biasanya memang lebih terkenal dengan hotel berbintang tiga, tapi khusus Surabaya F&B nya cukup mantap, karena di kota ini mereka juga mengelola hotel berbintang lima, Ciputra World Hotel. Walau tidak sama persis, tapi sedikit banyak pasti ada tukar ilmu dan staf antara beberapa cabang swiss bel inn tersebut.

Swiss Bel Inn are usually renowned for their 3 star hotels chain, but here in the City, the group also manages a 5 star hotel, Ciputra World Hotel. Despite the obvious differences, at least the some of their qualities are bound to rub off to the lesser stared establishment.

Lobster Bisque - Swiss Bel Inn Manyar

Lobster Bisque - Swiss Bel Inn Manyar
Satu satunya menu yang kita rasa agak kurang pas adalah Lobster Bisque ini. Entah kenapa, rasa sup lobster ini terasa terlalu kuat rasanya, sebelum melihat menunya kita sempat mengira masakan satu ini diolah menggunakan kerang, bukannya lobster.

One of the only menu that didn't taste that great is the Lobster Bisque. I don't know why but the taste of lobster doesn't show at all. Before reading the menu we thought that this was some sort of clam soup, instead of lobster.


Lime Sorbet
Sorbet jeruk limau, selingan antara hidangan yang pas untuk menghilangkan rasa eneg, sebelum menikmati main coursenya.

A refreshing lime sorbet between the course is exactly what we need to cleans our palate, before sampling the main course.



Walau makanannya overall ok dan dekornya cukup menarik, ada dua hal yang perlu diperhatikan di hotel ini, yang membawa pasangan lebih baik menggunakan fasilitas vallet atau drop off dulu di lobby. Dari area parkir di belakang hotel agak jauh dan tidak bisa jalan nyaman.
Kedua, area dinner yang romantis ada di lantai atas dekat pool, rencananya bakal dibuat indoor dengan air conditioner. Berhubung realisasinya di masa depan, saat kunjungan kita ke sana suasananya masih sumuk bin ongkep.

Though the general tastes of dishes were nice and the decoration are equally fabulous, there are some issues here that need to be addressed. If you're here on a date, be sure to use valet service, or don't forget to drop off the ladies first before heading to the parking lot. Since it's quite a distance from the lobby to parking lot, and it's quite hard to traverse, especially while using stilettos.
The other issue is about air conditioning, the top floor was quite hot without them.

Dessert

Poached Peer Sabayon

Poached Peer Sabayon
Dessert Peer Sabayon nya adalah hidangan yang paling berkesan malam itu, buah pir dimasak dalam red wine hingga rasanya manis dan lembut.
Sabayon adalah mousse ala italia yang dibuat dengan mengocok telur dengan gula dan white wine, di atas air mendidih hingga telurnya mengental.

The Dessert tonight were the most memorable dish. It's a Peer Sabayon, which was made by poaching peer on a red wine with sugar, making it tastes sweet and delicious.
Sabayon is the French name for zabaglione (Italian), a light, mousse-like  dessert that's made by whisking eggs, sugar and white wine over gently boiling water until the eggs thicken.
