Wow! It’s already my fourth post for today at the same wordpress blog. Hmm.. It’s kinda rare for me to be so diligent to make any review in my blog. You can check it by my other wordpress account which are http://talkingaboutlive.wordpress.com or http://rookieinlive.wordpress.com . I think it called ‘Power of Foods’ then! Hahahahaha…
I love to do my food reviews. It likes that I’m living in the sweet soft dreamy land. Hahahahaha…
Well, just see it. Am I doing it so diligent like today or not in the future. Coz sometimes I’m too lazy to finish something about reviewing something. Moreover, my internet connection somehow can be so slow and lame. That’s make me cranky for sure. :p
Ouchhhh!! Please don’t get bored.. I know.. I know.. Sometimes I can have a very long introduction and not getting straight to the point. But please bear with it then. It’s only about my style. Hehehehehehe..
So, let’s start our review for this new place.
It named The Light Cup (TLC) Cafe. The place will be at The Square in Jl. Siwalankerto Surabaya. Just in front of Petra University. This cafe just opened about a week ago and still in its soft opening. I’m getting interested about this place, since from outside, the place looks so cozy and warm. So, a few days ago, on Saturday, Priski and I went to this place. My first impression about this place is good enough (remember when I saw it from outside) yet when I entered this cafe, it’s so small.It has two stories and in each story, they only has 2-3 tables for 2 people. And 2nd stories, they put
two tables and you can sit on the floor just like japanese people do. At here, we called it ‘lesehan’.
Then, the waiter is lack of information about the menu. When I asked about ‘Aglio Olio’ that I want to order, he has no clue about it. Maybe he just nervous then. And when I ask, is the price already included 10% tax, he said yes but actually in fact it’s not. Once again, it’s kinda irritated me, if you go to the place that is not cheap but they are not serve you right.
The price is started from IDR.20.000 – 70.000 something.
But I like the menu’s design. Simple yet nice. They have two kind of menu. One for beverages menu and one for foods menu. For beverages menu was made by stainless steel yet the foods menu made by wood.
Then, we ordered our foods which are Aglio Olio, Spaghetti Bolognaise, Raspberry Smoothies and Virgin Mojito. For the promotion, since they still have a soft opening, will be two offer. The first one is, discount 20% for all item. But actually it means the discount will be 10 % since you are going to have 10% tax. Yeah.. marketing thingy. Not deceiving you yet there will ‘terms&conditions apply’ thingy. :p
The second promotion that we got is, buy 1 get 1 for any smoothies. So, overall, I think It will not cost them much money since beverages production costs will not as big as food production cost. Yet, I’m still thankful for the promotion. Hahahahahaha..
Okay.. let’s make a review for the Raspberry Smoothies. It doesn’t taste like raspberry. I was thinking at least it will be like Ribena (do you know this syrup that made from raspberry? taste good) but it’s not. It tasted like strawberry smoothies. Ja well..
Since I love strawberry, so it’s forgiven easily.
The second one, for Aglio Olio and Spaghetti Bolognaise.
Well.. Hm… I will not said it taste bad yet I think I can make my own Spaghetti Bolognaise better than theirs. But for Aglio Olio, it tasted good. Like it! It has creamy taste yet the spicy things from fresh chilli is great. Nice combination I think. But for the cleanliness and performance, they provided a good one.
And the disaster and awful one is the Virgin Mojito. It taste lime squash. (T__T)
Not mojito at all.. I can’t taste the mint right at here.. And they said they put apples but no apples taste at all. And many more.
That’s why I told you, it’s totally a mess one.
Well, I think that’s all my review about this cafe. So, I will put as average place. But let’s think positive then. Maybe its soft opening that’s why they still have a service and product like that. I think I will try again to go there and see is there any improvement or not. And I hope I will get my Mojito right at that time.
Have a nice day all! ^_^
