Torigen, Gading Serpong

Last month with some friends, i planned of to watch the Civil War together at Summarecon Mall Serpong. Before catch the movie, we were take a Japanese dinner around that area. It is called Torigen, during evening it seems quite around the street. Sure it is really different than the front side of street aside with the mall.

From front side, it said they are okonomiyaki specialist. Torigen is actually japanese restaurant with wooden yatai concept, and many japanese theme decoration around the restaurant.




It has second floor, but that time absolutely no other customer among us, it is sure quite. As i heard from friend, it is just opened several months, so they are new though. Guess not many people know it yet.

Since i have been sick about a week and still on recovery, i just have strong passion to have warm or soup dish for dinner. At last i choose the Chanko Nabe. Mixed vegetable, meat and seafood served in nabe soup.





Actually soup has nice color but it is unexpected taste. Soup is too plain even compare the miso soup. Only salty i could taste from it. Overall the vegetables and meats are good, fresh and tasty, except for the chicken & seafood. fish, prawn even the chicken absolutely not fresh. It has another smell, it sure turned down sense to eat. Meat sure good, just somehow too much fat.



Other than soup, my friends ordered the Okonomiyaki and Shake Soboro Don. As they mention, okonomiyaki is good, it has balanced thickness and good texture. And for the soboro don, i guess just fine. Not much description about this dish, salmon seems fine and cooked well done.
