Yamatoten Abura Soba Jakarta

Like I told you before, food industry in Jakarta is growing in extreme speed. One of the most growing place is Pantai Indah Kapuk. New restaurants are popping up here and there in a blink of the eye. I am so excited to try this new restaurant, because I have never tried anything like this before.

Introducing Yamatoten Abura Soba, a restaurant came from Tokyo. Flew those thousand miles to serve you the goodness in a bowl. The chef itself is originally from Japan to train the local chefs to bring the authentic taste of it. 

So basically  Abura Soba means oil Soba that served without the soup, At first I thought it was the kind of cold soba in those Japanese food. Turned out I was wrong, it was much better than that!

Trying out the appetizer. Pork belly, cheesy corn, and potato salad. And the winner is.... Yes, the amazing pork belly for sure!

Abura Soba Original (59k)
The way to enjoy your soba: add two rounds of vinegar and two rounds of chilly oil, then mix it well. The texture of the noodle was lovely. I really love all the seasoning which was really well-balanced. The topping was quite generous, which contained seaweed, sesame seeds, spring onions, bamboo shoots, and roasted pork. Roasted pork were great, the only setback was the bamboo shoot, which had its strong strange taste for me. 

Karami Ontama Abura Soba (68k)
This one was a creamy version of their original soba with half-boiled egg on top. All the toppings were similar with the original one, but they said it had its spicy taste. I did not really taste the spiciness, and still added some chilly oil to make it better. (It was good without any additional chilly, though!)
However, the creamy taste was quite heavy to enjoy this big bowl all by myself. So I recommend to share this one.

See those layers of sinful pork belly. But tasted great!

 Stir and mix it well

I really had a great meal in Yamatoten Abura Soba, and I am planning to pay more visits to try their menus. Everything was such a pleasant taste to my taste buds!
