[NEW SPOT] Happy Tummy with Japanese Food at Ebisuya Restaurant Jakarta

There’s another Japanese restaurant that recently opened on April 18, 2015 named Ebisuya Restaurant located at Bandengan Utara, North Jakarta. I had heard about it from my cousin who lives near the area and then received a confirmation from Selfi, a loyal reader who often reads and leave comments on most of the articles on my blog. Yay! Thank you! So, yup! I visited this restaurant a few days ago for dinner with my husband. We arrived early, but we didn’t know that they opened the restaurant at certain hours only (Lunch: 11.30 – 14.30 // Dinner: 17.30 – 22.00 // closed every Monday).

Luckily, there was a nice girl who’s in charge at that time, and she allowed us to wait there for a while before the restaurant back in operation at 5.30pm for dinner session. Ebisuya Restaurant itself is spacious with minimalist decor on all over the room. So while waiting, I took some pictures of the restaurant which mostly using wooden shelves, also wooden tables and chair for the dining room.

The Japanese mural painting on the wall also took my attention when I entered Ebisuya Restaurant. Although I did not understand the meaning behind the picture, I enjoy seeing a variety of Japanese motifs and combinations of colors that painted there.

Ebisuya Restaurant offers a wide variety of Japanese food; perhaps they have more than 200 menus. Starting from the typical Japanese appetizers, salads, soups, sushi rolls, sashimi, the house favorite set menu, a variety of steamed rice, and many more. There are so many choices, but without a sample of pictures on the menu, so I decided to try one dish from each category that seems unique and recommended by the restaurant manager.

Cold Ocha, IDR 5K (refillable)

Salmon Belly Sashimi, IDR 40K

Do you know why I always ordered Salmon Belly in any Japanese restaurant that has Salmon Belly on their menu? Salmon Belly has a higher fat content, but it is much softer than usual Salmon Sashimi. What I have tried in Ebisuya Restaurant also recommended. The salmon belly was very smooth, and I can taste the freshness of salmon in my mouth!

Spider Roll, IDR 40K

From the specialty fusion roll section, I ordered the Spider Roll sushi. It consisted of crispy soft shell crab, and avocado roll, garnished with bonito flakes all over it. It looked like a spider because the crab legs were sticking out of both ends of the sushi. The bonito flakes which are made from dried, fermented, and shaved fish, added a unique flavor to the sushi. It was simply delicious!

Mochi Tori Karaage, IDR 45K

The Mochi Tori Karaage instantly became my favorite appetizers. It’s basically a set of deep-fried chicken karaage coated with rice cakes (Mochi). They use chicken thighs for this dish and well marinated, no wonder the texture of the chicken was very moist, juicy and flavorful.

Seiro Gomoku Char Siu, IDR 85K

Ebisuya Restaurant provides Bamboo Seiro (bamboo steamed dishes) as their signature dishes that we cannot find in other Japanese restaurants in Jakarta. Seiro Gomoku dishes are served with Salmon Katsu, miso soup, pickles, and dessert, with a choice of different toppings. (But hey, I just realized now, where’s my dessert?? Hiks.. 🙁 )

I ordered Seiro Gomoku Char Siu among eight other options just because it contains pork belly. He-he.. Some Japanese seasonings such as kombu and sake made the rice became so tasty with a hint of dashi flavor. Not to forget, steamed braised pork belly was so tender and well presented over the rice in a unique bamboo basket. It may look simple, but surprisingly, all the combination was so delicious!! Salmon Katsu, which made of imported white salmon, was also unique and yummy. The portion was quite filling for me, though, the rice only filled half the size of the bamboo basket. A must try!

At first I thought it was a franchise restaurant from Japan, but apparently, Ebisuya Restaurant is a new restaurant under the same management with Meat Me Restaurant. Not surprisingly, this restaurant is located adjacent to each other. So, overall from my experience, we really enjoyed all the food above, despite the Mochi Tori Karaage leave a salty aftertaste at the end of my meal. The friendly and attentive staff, competitive price, and good quality of food, makes Ebisuya Restaurant worth a visit by everyone who loves Japanese food. We will definitely return to try some other dishes. Pssst, they’re still giving 20% off discount (food only) until end of this month! Don’t miss it!
