Okay. So this one is a not-so-bad one, but oh-so-far one. It is placed in the very east side of Surabaya, like so far from my house. If you know East Coast or Food Fest, this cafe is around five to ten minutes drive from there. It’s in the shopping street of San Antonio, and around the area, there are still a few places that has already open, not so many. But I heard and I also seen some picture of the place, it looks kind of lovely, so why not giving it a try?
Why do I say semi outdoor? Because they still cover the ceiling with glasses, so if it rains, you won’t get wet. If we are talking about the lighting, in here, you will get the perfect one, no doubt. But the downside are it can get quite humid and hot as they don’t use air conditioner, they only use a fan. This section is not big, and here is also the smoking area, so even only one person light up his/her cigarette, the smoke will spread everywhere. If you’re not comfortable with it like I am, my opinion is : you’d better sit inside. 🙂
Sup Merah (Red Soup) Rp. 25.000,- (3/5)
This is basically a tomato soup, with carrot, and sausages inside. It is served with four slices of triangle shaped bread. What I love about this dish is the portion is big. But I think they should add more thickness to the soup, and add more toppings such as chicken, green beans, macaroni and mushroom. Give it a little bit of spicy taste and make the bread like crouton will also be better. Because I found these bread were quite hard to chew and not crunchy.
Overall Heritage 181 is a cute place. If you’re living near the area, you should come by. No need to dress up in formal clothes, it’s just a simple cafe. Most of the people that I saw were teenagers, loud ones. I could hear their voices since they were on the second floor and when they moved to the first flood, the sound was getting louder and clearer, LOL. Kind of reminds me of old times. 🙂 The area is still quiet and peaceful, no parking fee (yet). Ah, I forgot about the electricity outlet. I guess not that many, if I’m not mistaken. And yup! That’s all
