I was invited to the grand opening of DS Bistro yesterday alongside with my fellow foodie friends. In case if you didn’t know, DS stands for Daily Sweet, and yes DS Bistro is right next to Daily Sweet in Citraland, west side of Surabaya. 🙂 I’ve noticed that they were working on something for months, but the result goes beyond my expectation!
Hall & Dining Rooms
DS Bistro is a two floor building, just like Daily Sweet, but the size of the venue is the one that make such big difference between them. While in my calculation, Daily Sweet can contain less than 100 people, DS Bistro on the other hand can accommodate up to 200 people on board! (and I just realized, they got “Le Grand” before DS Bistro, no wonder!) And the decoration of this place is amusingly pretty too, very chic and Instagram worthy.
At that time, we were seated on the second floor at the semi outdoor room because it’s the perfect place to get a perfect lighting as it’s surrounded by a glass wall. The thing that I noticed in DS Bistro is they divided their dining space in sections, especially on the second floor.
They have two VIP rooms; the first one probably could fit up to 20 person inside, while the bigger one can do 50-70 people inside (plus a small stage for band performance). I’m sorry, I was too lazy to switch lens, so I took all the picture in this blog post with my 50mm lens. Sure the quality of the pictures look more aesthetic, but it can’t cover the wide angleof the overall space 🙁
Chicken Roll (90k)
MISO BASIL SEABASS OVER NASI MERAH PUTIH (170K)
These two are the best dish of the day, especially theSeabass, it was actually a little bit too salty, and overwhelmed, but the red white rice really helped balanced it out. On the other hand, theChicken Rollwas also tasted delightful, especially when you tap it on the sauce that gave a little hint of a sweet taste to it, so yummy! (but some of my friend hated the Chicken Roll, so we might have a different preference on this one)
Pepperoni Pizza (65k)
ThisPepperoni Pizzais good! But I’m a Pizza lover, so you can’t really rely on my opinion, haha.. Kidding! But one thing, none was complaining about this Pizza yesterday, I guess it was truly nice, right? 🙂
Greek Salad – Grilled Chicken & Feta Cheese (70k)
TARTE AU CHOCOLAT (45K)
TheGreek Saladwas a mediocre, pretty much tasteless, I didn’t think there were any dressing on it and it was also a little bit over on the price. But the Tart au Chocolatwas da bomb! I was in love with every bite of it 🙂
Overall, the experience was good at DS Bistro, although I would say that there are a lot that needs to be improved, from the food to the service. One of my order didn’t come out, they told me all of the order were already served, but the server didn’t even bother asking if I wanted to order another one.
So, in the end, I just shared portions with everyone. And they didn’t seem excited having us there. I guess they were quite out of hand. But oh well, other than that, I love the place, and the atmosphere in DS Bistro. Congratulations for the Grand Opening, and I wish you best of luck in the future <3
