Based on a friend's recommendation, 5 of us had dinner at Citrus Lee in Surabaya. The restaurant entrance was quiet and private with red paneling but once inside, the restaurant had an understated, elegant but very comfortable atmosphere. Chef Hendry Sedjahtera, the owner of the restaurant was warm and friendly, and patiently explained the menu to us, We went for the classic 6-course set menu where you pick from a list of appetizers and a main. I had the first mini-appetizer of angel-hair pasta, cherry tomato and egg which was great. This was followed by the miso tofu soup, a clear and flavorful consommé. Next was the wonderful appetizer of soft poached egg with black truffle and Iberico ham that had flavors and textures just bursting in the mouth. Amuse-bouche was a mango sorbet, the prelude to the main event, the Iberico pork belly - slow roasted, tender with a thin crisp crackling. Amazing. The chocolate opera dessert provided a sweet ending to a wonderful evening. My colleagues had the wine-aged tenderloin, the rib eye and also the cod, all of which were incredible.
The service was also attentive but unobtrusive. This restaurant is a gem in Surabaya!

Eating good food is a hobby. Been trying most of fine dining restaurants in town but by far Citrus Lee has the best food for fine dining. Chef Henry as the owner, personally and carefully cooked and prepared our meals. It has quality and taste. Set menu is very filling and worth the price compared to other fine dining restaurants in town. All friends who I recommended to go always come home happy and impressed with the food. If you haven't gone... you should.

Love their truffle infused egg over mushroom puree, the flavor just burst in your mouth and it is undoubtedly the best egg dish I have ever tasted. Their wild mushroom salad was also amazing. Chef Hendry has always been attentive and accommodating, explaining each dish as he serves it to customers, which to me truly enhance the whole dining experience.

Tried different entrees and overall they tasted great and looked wonderful, but my all time favorite has to be the seabass. The fish was light yet so fragrant and flavorful! The quality of food is well worth the price tag and it is always fun to try their amuse bouche that are different from time to time. Definitely one of the few places in Surabaya that I would highly recommend.
