Hokkaido Izakaya, Pavilion Retail Arcade, Central Jakarta

Available in Bahasa: Click Here

Japanese food has become one of the most culinary found in almost every country. Not to forget, Jakarta also has an abundance of Japanese restaurants. With variants of different concepts, from classical to modern and even unique.
Back again I along with Pergikuliner which is one of the popular culinary app in Jakarta and even other capital cities. An app with features that make it easy for us to find interesting restaurant references and culinary articles.
We visited Hokkaido Izakaya for lunch with our foodie friends in Jakarta. Incidentally this restaurant is quite new to operate so still seen some flowers in front of the restaurant. Similar to Japanese restaurant concept generally, Dominant with brightly colored wooden theme in the whole restaurant room.

Due to our previous reservation, there is a private area which provides a quieter and more comfortable atmosphere. The room is quite spacious which contains about 10 people inside.
The menu offered is of course a variety of authentic Japanese food. One of the recommended menu is Kuro Goma Soba. Big black bowl with soba noodles served with minced pork, egg yolks and seaweed. Also provided sesame sauce to be mixed so as to provide a savory taste.
In addition to soba, we may also enjoy various donburi with a variety of toppings. Available from chicken, pork and seafood such as tuna and salmon. I'm not sure the rice used is Japanese rice, the flavor of the donburi is so basic in my opinion. No special flavors were provided from each dishes.
But There was one rather different menu that I've also never tasted before, namely, Tempura Curry Soba. Soba noodles served with a thick curry sauce and dark yellow color with a piece of tempura on it. Dense taste is strong enough to give the sensation of a curry is very legit.
If asked to choose food here, then I would recommend soba. Both cold or plain soba clearly provide a delicious authentic taste. Besides the atmosphere offered by Hokkaido Izakaya also quite comfortable, we will be brought to the atmosphere just like a restaurant in Japan.
The price offered is quite standard, besides every food is served with a sizeable serving. Moreover, the soba noodles package is shunted along with the huge Kaki-age (sort of Japanese fried).
