Sushi Omakase, Furusato Izakaya, Jakarta

Bahasa l English

Fans of Japanese cuisine are certainly familiar with the term Omakase, this Japanese-style set menu is very popular, especially when talking about premium Japanese-style restaurants. Now, this time I introduce the omakase set offered by Furusato Izakaya, a Japanese restaurant in Jakarta with a charming vibe. The Japanese atmosphere is really felt in the entire interior from the ground floor to the second floor with a semi-outdoor area and several private rooms.

The omakase menu this time with the concept of sushi dishes served by chef Shinichiro Takada, a genuine Japanese chef who certainly understands Japanese dishes. This set menu is priced at IDR 650,000++ per person. The menu served consists of 6 parts of the menu starting from the appetizer, Mackerel Nanbanzuke. Using local ingredients, mackerel fish, marinated with ginger and onions, then fried. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with the perfect savory taste.

Then proceed with the sashimi dish, 3 types of fish are used namely, Salmon, Baby Tuna, and Grouper. While salmon and tuna sashimi may be very common, what about grouper sashimi? This fish is familiar with steam or sweet and sour dishes in Indonesia, but it turns out that it can also be processed into sashimi, with a distinctive aroma, fiber pieces that are more complex than salmon.

Then Chawanmushi, maybe some of you already know about this dish. The taste of comfort with stuffed shrimp, chicken, and mushrooms is really delicious enjoyed while warm. After that, we just entered the sushi dish with 10 kinds, starting from Pomfret Fish with Ginger, Calamari with Salted Squid Ink, and Wagyu Aburi. My favorite is the wagyu sushi, the sliced ​​meat looks tempting, the smell of smoky torch, the tenderness, and the right seasoning.

The sushi dish continued with Mantis Shrimp, Grouper with Yuzu Kosho topping (Fermented chili paste ingredients with yuzu and salt), and Sillago marinated with vinegar and grated ginger topping. Back to using grouper which is identical to Indonesian dishes, but this time it becomes sushi certainly provide a different experience.

Next to sushi dish, Mackerel with Nori and Sesame Seeds, Black Tiger Shrimp, Tamagoyaki Chiffon, and Tako Makisushi Roll. A unique sushi dish using mackerel, half-cooked and soft in texture. Tamagoyaki chiffon is also attractive with a shape resembling a chiffon cake, puffy, and a sweet-savory taste.

If usually miso soup is served at the beginning of the set menu, here miso will be served after the sushi dish. It may also be a dish for cleansing after enjoying a variety of foods. After that, it was followed by dessert, Shiratama Zenzai, red bean soup with chewy mochi.
The omakase experience at Furusato Izakaya was quite memorable. Enjoying a variety of dishes made by a real Japanese chef certainly gives an authentic taste. In addition, chef Takada-San also serves different dishes with a touch of local Indonesian ingredients, of course, fresh and good quality. Eating omakase under the price of Rp 1,000K is certainly affordable. Let's find out Japanese-style premium dining and quality at Furusato Izakaya.
