Chicking Royal Plasa Surabaya - Dubai Fried Chicken

Fast Food with Middle Eastern Flair


Chicking  Surabaya - Crunchy Supreme

Minggu lalu kita menghadiri undangan ke gerai fast food terbaru di Royal Plasa, Chicking.
Berbeda dengan makanan cepat saji lain, di sini tidak sekedar menjual citarasa western, tapi dengan olahan bumbu khas timur tengah.

Last week we were invited to try the latest trending fast food in Surabaya, Chicking.
Having the label fast food, doesn't mean they're just a boring eatery selling cheap dishes fast, this one comes to Surabaya packed with a dash of Dubai Flavor.

Chicking - Dubai Breeze (Rp 12.000,-) Green Apple Soda

Pilihan minumannya beragam, ada teh kotak dan coca cola juga di sini, tapi yang menjadi signature drink adalah minuman soda ini. Ada beberapa pilihan rasa, di antaranya Lychee, Green Apple, Lime. Semuanya enak, tidak semanis soft drink lain dan unik, harganya pun cukup terjangkau, sekitar Rp 12.000,-.

There's plenty of beverage option, including tea and colas, but the signature drink is this fizzy one.
They got 3 options for the beverage flavor, Lychee, Green Apple and Lime. Basically it's a soda mixed with some syrup, but it tastes nice. At about Rp 12.000 it's also an affordable option which gives you something interesting rather than run of the mill soft drink.

Chicking -
Crispy Chicken Rice (Rp 28.000,+)
made with Long Grain Rice / Nasi Briyani

Pemilik gerainya sempat menyinggung kalau citarasa masakannya bakal membuat yang makan nostalgia dengan makanan yang disantap saat umroh. Saya hanya pernah beberapa kali transit di negara Timur Tengah dan sekali mengunjungi Turki. Kalau dibandingkan masakan Turki sih citarasanya jauh berbeda, buat saya makan di sini malah mengingatkan saya pada rasa masakan India. 

The owner did mention that eating here would make you reminiscence of going to Umrah (Moslem's pilgrim to middle eastern countries). Whilst I've been transiting to some of those countries, I never had the chance to try the local cuisines, and the closest I've been is to Turkey, which is a far cry cuisine wise.
This place instead, reminds me of my time in India, where I had plenty of long grain rice and those Chicken Masala.

Chicking Grilled Chicken (Rp 110.000,+)
 Ayam Panggang ini untuk saya rasanya mirip-mirip dengan Chicken Tikka yang pernah saya nikmati di India, dan beberapa kali juga di Kuala Lumpur. Rasanya unik dan menarik, tidak bisa disamakan dengan rasa ayam panggang lain di Surabaya. Instagramer di sebelah saya sampai habis setumpuk besar sendiri ayam ini, padahal kalau diundang ke resto mewah dan hotel berbintang makannya biasanya jaim.


This grilled chicken is one of the signature dish that reminds me of the time I was having Chicken Tikka Masala in India, and in Kuala Lumpur. It tastes unique and can't be compared with other grilled chicken in Surabaya. My instagramer friend sitting next to me even finished a big pile of this chicken, which was quite a feat, since he usually coy when eating in fancy restaurant and five star hotels.

Chicking Crunchy Supreme (Rp 31.000,+)

Satu menu yang buat kita tidak terlalu prima adalah sandwich Crunchy Supreme ini. Rasanya sedikit membosankan, terutama karena tidak terlalu banyaknya condiment di dalam. Kalau pesan ini mungkin bisa minta supaya bumbunya diberi agak banyak sehingga rasa sandwichnya sedikit moist.

One of the dish that weren't to our liking were this sandwich Crunchy Supreme.
It tastes kinda dry and boring, probably due to the condiment being too few and lack of variety.
If you want to order this sandwich, I suggest you ask for extra sauce inside to help it moisten a bit.
