Hi guys! I have just came back from my trip to Jakarta-Bandung and I was so excited to see HolyWings signboard in Graha Family. This place is super close to where I live and I am just over the moon to find out that this popular establishment from Jakarta has finally made its way to my hometown.
I visited HOLYWINGS just a day after they opened for the public, but sadly their opening time is very close to the sunset, which would be very challenging if I want to take a good picture. I actually tried to ask the owner via email if I could visit an hour before they open, but they declined my request.
So yeah, I visited them at 5 pm sharp and rushed myself to take all the pictures that I needed before the sun all set. I actually got all the pictures of the venue at the golden hour, however, the food didn’t come as quick as what I expected, so please pardon the bad quality. PLUS, my camera was super cranky at that time, at some point it says the battery didn’t set properly, or it couldn’t read the memory card, so I had to re-take several pictures. Gosh..
Talking about the interior design, HOLYWINGS looks a lot like a tree house, which is cool to me. Everything is made out of wood there, kinda reminds me of Antler Cabin except with no fancy furniture inside. But that didn’t mean it’s not an insta-worthy place in here. One of the nice spot that I saw there was the circle little cabin, I don’t know I just find it really cute. Oh, and they even had a tree installed in the middle of the dining area too.
About the foods and beverages in HOLYWINGS, I saw they have more beverages menu than the foods, and they are serving alcohol too! Usually, a new cafe or lounge or bar in Surabaya didn’t sell alcohol on their soft opening, they took it out from the menu, because to get the licence to sell alcohol in here is apparently uneasy, but perhaps it is different in here.
Chicken Wings with Dips (39k) 6 pcs
The size is small, like Pizza Hut’s chicken wings, similar like the ones that I always had at home, or maybe slightly smaller. It tasted pretty good, savory and crunchy, but nothing really stands out. The plating is seriously needs a fix and I think it’s better to use a small bucket or a small wicker basket than a plain plate like this. But I really love the wasabi mayo dipping sauce, so good!
Black Gyu Don (53.5k)
If I may conclude, I guess HOLYWINGS Surabaya is a place to hangout and have fun with your friends after work where you can drink and enjoy their wings until the very late of night. I can imagine finishing 50 chicken wings by my self while chugging one pitcher of beer, it must be very yummy, haha.. Guilty pleasure indeed! They have three LCD TVs if you want to watch football games maybe, and they also have a spot for live band to perform.
Perhaps I only wish that they can open in the afternoon too because it’s a very potential spot to work, do assignments, or have a lunch meeting as well! I heard that they will open another branch just a minute away from the spot that they are opening right now. I don’t really understand, but we’ll see! 🙂
Will they invite A-List-Singer every weekend like in Jakarta? I don’t know, again, we’ll see! ;)I hope you guys enjoy this post and hope the best of luck for HOLYWINGS Surabaya. See you in my next post! :*
