Are you looking for a nice dining place, with a quality dish and a pocket friendly price to dine in with your loved ones? Congratulations! You’re coming to the right place. Today, I’m going to review Steak Hut in the east side Surabaya.
This establishment is not a new thing in Surabaya. I remember celebrating my birthday two years ago in here, while I was still working in Citibank. But just like any other regular customer back then (before food blogging and social media took over most of my time like now), I just came there, enjoying my meal, taking pictures for fun. All I remember was that they got nice steaks with a lot of discount promotion.
Earlier this week, I finally had the chance to come back again. I went there with some friends for a casual lunch and also with EQ, who (again) took all the magnificent shots for this blog post. So please, do enjoy.. 🙂
Steak Hut Manyar
I instantly realized how different I reacted, when I walked pass through the door glass. I used to not paying attention into anything whenever I went to any restaurant, but now my eyes just couldn’t stop wandering around to the details of the interior, and my brain was just as active, thinking about why Steak Hut looked so much more interesting now? Even though I also remember that they didn’t change a bit since the past years. My excitement was going through the roof in just a second..
Okay, let me show you around first, shall we?
This two floor building has several sections of dining area. On the first floor, there’s the main dining hall which are divided into five sections, while on the second floor they only got two sections and it is mainly for private events. I guess in total they can accommodate around 150 to 200 people on board. Pretty big, I know.
If we’re talking about the interior design. Steak Hut has a lot to offer. The wall might just plain cement with square lines, but what amused me were the art installations on on top of it. They got different type of tables, chairs and floors on every dining area section, and some got mirror on the ceiling too! I can blab a full page about its interior really, but it would bore you, lol. So.. Long story short, Steak Hut spoils my sight with a clean interior, and if you still don’t understand, I’d let these pictures below speak for itself..
After got spoiled by the elegance of the interior on the left and at the center side of the dining area, my heart suddenly skipped a beat when I stepped further to the right side of the building. It was when I found the last two sections of the first floor where the walls are dominated with glasses and gosh……
the hanging plants! Inside my heart, I was like a giddy little kid who’s standing in front of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and I then said to EQ, “We are going to sit there!”
Yes. Right there. on a bright wooden table, beside the clear glass wall where I got the most source of ‘free’ lighting. I will never be bored telling you guys that I love sitting next to the big window every time I go to a restaurant. It is crucial if we are talking about a nice food photograph, because the window provides natural light from the sun which could lead us to a good lighting and a better quality picture for sure.
Too excited with the first floor, almost forgot we still have the second one, lol..
Let’s go up!
Unlike the first one, the second floor was not as fancy in the decoration part. It was much simpler, but I love the outside section area where everything is bright and visible from the inside. It is nice for lighting in the afternoon, and nice for a view at night.
Okay, now for the hungry belly!
Steak Hut Salad Rp. 33.400,- (7.5/10)
This was our first dish, one of our appetizer. The meat on top were great, we got fish fillets, chicken chunks, beef slices and sausages (I love the first three, hihi..) The portion of the vegetables was big as well, but I am a meat lover so I didn’t eat too much of the veggies. But if you love eating green and clean, this should be a great appetizer for you.. 🙂
Bird Nest Rp. 19.900,- (8/10)
You guys, should try this one! I might say this one is like a kroket that has been taken to another level. The crispy potato that shaped like a bird nest added such a playful texture to dish, and when you take a bite, it was kind of a surreal experience that makes you want to take another until you finished it. The recipe itself was brought by the owner’s grand mother, originally from Holland. Crispy on the outside, soft and yummy on the inside. Yum!
Mozarella Beef Roll Rp. 67.900,- (8.5/10)
My main lunch and my second best dish of the day.. At the first look, it may seems like just a small size simple dish, but the richness of its taste was enough to fulfill my tummy’s loneliness. Everything were all in good balance, the side dishes, the beef, the sexy melted cheese, I didn’t even need any flavor enhancement to that, no steak sauce, no tomato or chili sauce, no pepper, nothing. 🙂
*New Menu* Chicken Roll with Mozarella Cheese Rp. 54.000,- (8/10)
Spring Chicken (half portion) Rp. 33.900,- (9/10)
This was our last order, and I ordered it because it looks kind of unique and I wanted to try. When the dish came, we got a short flaming show because they have to burn it with the Brandy before serving it on to the table. Even when the chicken was on the table it didn’t look appealing, because it was all black and skinny. But when I tried it……
It was d . e . l . i . c . i . o . u . s ! I truly regret underestimating this dish. They really nailed the taste down and I think the sauce that has been absorbed into the meat which did the magic for the most part. It was kind of sweet but also savory, the meat was tender and cooked to perfection. Don’t you dare eating this with knife and fork, just wash your hand and bite it to the bone!
Tenderloin Cordon Bleu Rp. 67.900,- (7/10)
Es Jagung Rp 23.400,- | Avocado Juice Rp. 24.900,-
Pink Lady Tea Rp 25.900,- (7/10)
