[NEW SPOT] From Japan, Bari-Uma Ramen Now Open in Jakarta

Hey-ho, Japanese food lovers! There’s a new Ramen House in Jakarta; Bari-Uma Ramen, originated from Hiroshima, Japan. The first outlet in Jakarta, located in City Walk, Sudirman where I was invited to a pre-opening food tasting event last week. Bariuma Ramen has become one of the most successful business models ever developed among Japanese restaurants in the world. After successfully developed in Japan, they are expanding their branches in Singapore, Malaysia and currently in Jakarta. Yay! The restaurant itself is quite spacious with minimalist Japanese decors and yellowish light that create a warm atmosphere inside.

So, here’s a little sneak peek at what’s in the kitchen. I was impressed when I heard the owner say that all Char Siu are imported from Germany so that customers can taste the best meat with the best texture. It sounds cool! In addition to the meat, Bariuma Ramen also provide freshly made in-house ramen noodles to assure of its freshness.

Chicken Karaage, IDR 35K (4pcs) / IDR 68K (8pcs)

While waiting for other guests to arrive, they served us with some appetizers. Karaage chicken, also known as the Japanese version of fried chicken, has been marinated with garlic, shoyu, vinegar, and black pepper, then deep-fried until crisp. No wonder, it tasted juicy and had a good balance of textures and flavors.

Chicken Gyoza, IDR 35K (5pcs) / IDR 68K (10pcs)

Gyoza means Japanese pan-fried chicken dumpling. At first, it seemed a bit odd to me because the gyoza had a thin layer on top that made from a mixture of flour and potato starch with a specific blend ratio. Although the gyoza was in small size, it was nicely pan-fried outside, crispy, yet still moist on the inside. It’s best eaten with the gyoza sauce or chili sauce.

Yakitori-Tori-Combo, IDR 39K (5 sticks)

They also served us with assorted grilled chicken skewers consists of chicken with white leek, two chicken thighs, and two chicken breasts smothered with teriyaki sauce. The Yakitori was just so-so for my personal liking.

Ajitama-Uma Ramen, IDR 68K

Here’s the best part, among five other pork flavored soup and three other chickens flavored ramen soup, I ordered Ajitama Uma Ramen. It’s exactly the same as the signature dish of Bariuma Ramen, just in Ajitama, they also add a flavored egg as a topping. I enjoyed the springy texture of the noodle. The Tonkotsu soup (pork flavored shoyu soup) was so richly flavored, but I can only enjoy half of the soup because it was too oily and too thick for my preference. However, I especially savored the thick-cut chashu in the soup – it was very delicious! All charsiu served with the right amount of fat to keep the meat moist when grilled to perfection, and yes, they simply melted in my mouth. The egg was well marinated, and overall, I enjoyed this ramen.

Kara-Uma Ramen, IDR 68K

Karauma Ramen also has the same ingredients as the signature dish of Bariuma Ramen. It’s a spicy version of the broth that contains chili paste, chili oil, and chili powder. It was spicy enough for me, but it depends on our own preferences. If you’re a fan of spicy ramen, you might like this.

Ishiyaki Chaofan Chashu, IDR 45K

In addition to ramen, and appetizers, they also serve a stone-cooked fried rice with shredded charsiu. The portion was just right and so delicious when we mixed the rice with the meat.

Sapporo Beer, IDR 39K

Besides hot or cold Ocha, diners can also find a variety of beer at Bariuma Ramen. Sapporo Beer is one of them.

I just realized from the menu, that diners should be given a choice of  different texture of noodles to choose from, starting from firm, original to soft, but none of the waiters asked us about it when taking orders. Overall, the ramen was tasty and quite filling, though, the soup was quite salty for my personal liking. If you’re a fan of Japanese style ramen in thick flavorful broth, you should come and try Bariuma Ramen. Pssst, they also offer some ramen in chicken flavored soup! Last but not least, congratulations Bari-uma Ramen for the opening and thank you for having us in the event! I will return to try out the Spicy Gyoza and Aburi Salmon, which looks appealing from the menu.

        Sampai binggung mau pilih yang mana
        sebenarnya tertarik sama menu nasi yang dihidangin di dalam tempat bambu yang kayak dimsum tempatnya
        tapi porsinya banyak banget, karena habis sakit
        jadi ga bisa makan banyak dulu

        jadi aku cuma pesan nigiri sushi, sushi roll dan pork katsu
        Untuk taste lumayan sih dan menunya ada beberapa yang unik
        kayak melted cheese diwrap pake shiso leaf terus kayak digoreng tempura gitu, ada chicken karage yang pakai rice crispynya buat topping luarnya juga ci

        Sayang dessertnya baru ada ice cream aja
