Available in Bahasa: Click Here

Japanese restaurant is a lot found in Jakarta, but already know that every city in Japan has food with different characteristics. One of them is Hokkaido, recently i visited one of the Japanese restaurants in Senopati area, South Jakarta.
This restaurant is quite difficult to see due to the writing of the restaurant brand is less clear on signage and the restaurant is slightly invisible although its location in an area that can be spelled famous with culinary spots. From the front looks a house with a typical Japanese bamboo, but huge enough to block the entrance so that the restaurant looks closed.
Entering the restaurant, like the Japanese concept general in Jakarta, wooden and bamboo themes dominate the entire interior of the restaurant. It's just lights used yellow and dim so the room feels like dark atmosphere.
The menu mainstay here is a typical Australian lamb. Grilled with a round stove and resembles an army helmet in past era of Japan. Once upon a time from the stove, in ancient times the Japanese soldiers used their helmets to grill meat.
Assisted by friendly staff, before grill the meat, the stove is smeared with fat that will make it not sticky, then start entering many vegetables such as carrots, cabbage and bean sprouts. Then the meat is placed in the middle to get the heat of fire that fits. Once in the stove, the fragrant scent is strong and really seductive.
Meat cooking time will also determine whether or not tender texture of the meat. It should not be too short nor too long. Once cooked, the meat can be enjoyed with the sauce provided, special Hokkaido special sauce with a savory sweet taste. Meat with a fragrant aroma and texture is quite soft really nice.
In addition to grilled meat, we can also enjoy lamb tongseng which is a typical Indonesian food. Spicy and savory taste is quite a role, but meat has a slightly distinctive smell when compared with roasted meat here. Because the lamb meat is burned here using imported ingredients from Australia lamb, while the meat used in tongseng is a local meat.
In accordance with the quality, both types of meat have different aromas and textures. For the price can be quite high for the people of Jakarta in general, given the consumption of imported meat will be more expensive than local meat and moreover we know that lamb mear is higher price than beef. It would need to spend more if you want to enjoy grilled lamb, because the portion is not too large serving.

In addition to the grill, Zin Hokkaido also provides lamb Nabe, which is to enjoy lamb with a different presentation, Japanese Nabe soup. Zin Hokkaido can be one of the reference to enjoy Japanese food Hokkaido-style that is currently not much in Jakarta. No need to have trouble locating it because it's easy to find through maps app.
