Hokkaido Izakaya, Pavillion Retail Arcade, Central Jakarta

Bahasa l Inggris Memang cukup mudah sih menemukan restoran Jepang di Jakarta. Namun tidak semua menawarkan sensasi menikmati makanan Jepang otentik yang berkualitas premium. Berdiri dengan konsep Jepang yang khas, Hokkaido Izakaya menjadi rekomendasi yang patut dikunjungi. Mencicipi aneka hidangan Jepang yang diolah dari bahan dasar berkualitas dan segar. Dengan area yang cukup luas dan tersedia beberapa ruang private yang nyaman, restoran yang berasal dari Jepang ini sudah memiliki beberapa outlet seperti di Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapura hingga Indonesia. Dengan seorang chef langsung dari Jepang, tentu tidak perlu diragukan bagaimana kualitas hidangan yang disajikan. Beberapa menu yang wajib dicoba seperti Hokkaido Fresh Uni Soba, sajian mie khas Jepang ini tentu sudah familiar namun ada yang berbeda dimana selain soba dingin disajikan dengan saus mirin yang gurih, dilengkapi dengan uni yang segar dan lezat. Kara Tsuki Hotate juga salah satu menu yang wajib disini, jara
