Okay, so even though we said that we've moved on from Japanese, I guess it's not entirely true, cause here we are again! Can't help it, people..we just love Japanese foods! Not satisfied with just any Japanese foods, we decided to go straight to the heart of Japanese food in Jakarta and that is Little Tokyo!
This little Japanese restaurant is called Izakaya Taichan and it's located at Blok M area, if you don't know where Little Tokyo is. Here you get to sit as if you're on a tatami dining table to enhance the Japanese feels! :D Each table are only divided by that black wooden separator, so be sure not to disturb your neighbors..lol!
AGEDASHI TOFU IDR 32,5K
Not really expecting much from agedashi tofu. It was my friend's favorite dish, so we decided to get it and I can say that it's very decent! You can really judge a restaurant's cooking from the simplest dish!
KUSHIKATSU MORIAWASE IDR 75K
A set of fried foods, who can ever resist it? Lol! Anyways, I guess there's not really much that can be said about fried foods. I'm just glad that the crumbs were not overly thick but they could use some seasonings that could make it at least a bit more flavorful!
BUTA KATSUNI SET IDR 82,5K
From this set, you'll get rice, miso soup, and pickles, so it's a complete set for a reasonable price! Another plus point because it tasted amazing, really love how flavorful it is, yet it's not overwhelming! I'd love to have these over and over again, plus it's pork!
YAKITORI MORIAWASE (6 PCS) IDR 77,5K
It's chicken on a stick..lol! But seriously, starting from the skin, intestines, boneless, and with bones, they're all here! There's really nothing special about it though, since you'd find the ones in Indonesia's stall better than these. Guess these are healthier ones, which means a less strong flavor!
Really amazed with how authentic most places here in Little Tokyo, from ambiance to foods! For someone who admires Japan very much, this is like a little heaven. :p I'd definitely come back to try other restaurants here!!
