Chiang Kong Surabaya

Rumah Makan yang Sumuk, Debuen.... tapi... Enak

Chiang Kong Surabaya

Chiang Kong ini salah satu resto legendaris di Surabaya. Saya sering mendengar namanya dari teman-teman, terutama yang tinggal di sekitar resto tersebut.

This eatery has a very spartan atmosphere, don't expect air conditioner, fancy cutleries not even a clean table. If you read the above title, it's translated as hot & humid, dusty but delicious, and that would sums the place up for me.

Teman-teman yang suka merekomendasikan tempat ini biasanya lebih sering pesan antar atau dibawa pulang. Saya sempat bingung saat melihat harganya, karena untuk ukuran harga makanannya lebih mirip dengan resto dengan suasana nyaman dibandingkan depot tanpa AC. Setelah mencoba makan di sini, akhirnya saya bisa menyimpulkan kalau harganya cukup sesuai dengan kualitas masakan yang dihidangkan, porsinya besar dan rasanya enak. Andai suasananya sedikit lebih nyaman, bakal lebih seimbang dengan makanannya.


Friends that recommend this place are more often have the dish for take-away rather than eating in. At first I was quite baffled, their price is quite similar to other more comfortable Chinese restaurant, with decent air conditioning and genuine restaurant ambiance.
After trying it for myself, I concur the food does match the price, portion are big and the taste are nice.
If the place was a bit more comfy, it would better suits the quality of the cuisine served here.




Kita mengunjungi Chiangkong saat jam makan siang, sekitar pk 14.00. Saat itu masih belum ada tamu lain, dan kita memilih meja yang posisinya agak dalam. Walau sudah memilih meja yang agak jauh dari pintu, tapi tetap saja terasa cukup berdebu, kemungkinan karena posisi pintu yang selalu terbuka dan menghadap jalan raya langsung.


We visited Chiang Kong for lunch, it's about 14.00 when we arrive and it's almost closing time for them. We did choose a table in the middle of the eatery, and it's still quite dusty. I guess that's the drawback of having a small eatery with main doors located so close to the busy road.



Chiang Kong - Ayam Putih (Rp 50.000)
Walau mejanya relatif berdebu tapi peralatan makannya cukup terjaga kebersihannya. Tidak ada keluhan tentang masakan yang dihidangkan. 

Though their interior are pretty dusty and barren, there's nothing to fault with the dish. Their presented nicely, with a clean plating and a bit of garnish.


Chiang Kong - Sup Bibir Ikan porsi 1/2 (Rp 40.000)
Sup Bibir Ikan juga masuk salah satu menu favorit di sini, dan memang rasanya cukup ideal. Tidak ada rasa yang terlalu dominan, rasa asam asin dan manisnya seimbang.

This Fish Lips Soup is listed on their favorite menu list, and yes it's that good. The seasoning are just balanced, a combination of sweet and sour, with a bit of spiciness.



Chiang Kong - Baby Kailan (Rp 20.000)
Baby Kaylannya standard, tidak istimewa tapi juga tidak buruk. Untuk selera saya masih ada banyak resto dengan olahan sayur yang lebih lezat.

Most of their food are quite special, the only exception is this baby kaylan dish. It's a bit strange for me, and not as good as other chinese restaurant. That being said it's still perfectly edible and not off putting at all, it's just that there's plenty of similar eateries with better tasting vegetable dish.



Chiang Kong - Udang Mayones (Rp 55.000)
Mengenai menu favorit, masing-masing punya selera pribadi. Saya sendiri paling menyukai ayam putihnya yang sepertinya banyak kemiripan atau sama dengan ayam haynan. Sedangkan partner makan lebih menyukai Udang Mayonesnya.

Both of us have our own favorite menu on that luncheon. For me their White Chicken (similar to Haynan chicken or Singapore's Chicken Rice) is the best dish of the day. While my dining partner choose the Shrimp with Mayonnaise as her favorite.
