Seventeen Lounge - Harris Hotel Gubeng

Seventeen Lounge - Harris Hotel

Seventeen Lounge - View from 17'th floor Private Dining Area

Seventeen Lounge adalah resto yang ada di lantai 17 dari Harris Hotel Surabaya. Tempatnya ada di tengah kota, jln Bangka yang ada di area jalan Gubeng. Berhubung ada di dalam gang jadi tidak terlalu ramai dan hectic, cukup nyaman untuk jujugan dating.

Seventeen Lounge is a restaurant located on the 17'th floor of Harris Hotel Surabaya. It's quite confeniently located, around the Gubeng area which is near the city center, but in a smaller street so it's not so hectic.

Untuk urusan instagenic, tempat ini sebetulnya cukup menarik saat dilihat, tapi untuk foto-foto yang saya ambil sendiri terasa sedikit menantang untuk mencari foto bagus, terutama saat berusaha foto makanan dalam ruangan private-nya.
Entah memang sulit atau saya saat itu lagi adaptasi dengan lensa baru.

This place looks quite stunning at first sight, my first impression was tonight it's gonna be an easy photo taking. Turns out it's quite a challenging shot for me, especially for the food photo, taken inside the private room.
I'm not sure if it's due to the place being a tad dim and hard for using flash, or I'm not yet accustomed to my new lenses.

Cuisine

Salmon with Herbs Lemon Butter (Rp 125.000)
Rasa makanan di sini rata-rata sesuai standard, tapi juga tidak ada yang menarik. Kalau kita berkunjung kembali ke sini, alasan utamanya adalah untuk menikmati suasana restonya, bukan untuk makanannya.

Food here tastes just standard for us, if we ever go back here, it would be for the interesting ambiance instead of the food.


Seventeen Lounge Surabaya - Poulet Grillee aux Champignons (Rp 75.000)

Seventeen Lounge - French Cordon Bleu (Rp 75.000)
Cordon bleu-nya not bad sih, tapi porsinya menurut saya kok terlalu kecil untuk harganya. Penampilannya sih memang 'cantik', walau platingnya agak repot mau difoto supaya bagus, antara piring dan makanannya kurang imbang ukurannya, ditambah lagi sausnya ditaruh dalam wadah keramik.
Untuk perbandingan cordon blue dari Carnis di bawah ini harganya Rp 35.000, beda harga ini wajar karena kualitas tempatnya memang beda jauh, tapi alangkah baiknya kalau antara hidangan beda harga  2x lipat lebih ini andai ukurannya mirip.
Resto Carnis ini salah satu kokinya ex resto Calvados, detailnya akan saya bahas di post berikutnya yang akan tayang akhir minggu ini.


The Cordon bleu tastes alright, but the portion is minuscule for my point of view, and judging it from their price point.
I suppose they're aiming for a 'pretty looking' dish, despite that, I found that taking photo of this dish is quite challenging due to the massive plate and the ceramic sauce bowl.
For a comparison, here's a similar dish from a new restaurant, Carnis. Please note that Carnis is a simple eatery, so the price differences is reasonable. It's just that for me it would be much better if the dish with twice the price, would be portioned similarly to the dish from Carnis which is half of Seventeen Lounge's price.

Beverages

Seventeen Lounge Cola
Saya senang dengan tempat yang cukup perhatian dalam serving beverage, dengan menaruh potongan jeruk nipis dalam cola untuk menambah nikmatnya rasa

I like how this place put a little extra on their cola, a slice of lime which really enhance the beverage taste. Those small touch really makes a difference for me.
