Japanese's kind of noodle is kind of trending right now, at least in Jakarta. After those ramen and udon (which was enjoyable to our palate), soba is another thing to highlight. Soba, commonly known as noodle in Japanese, might have the wrong perception. At first I thought that all soba was served cold. Turns out I was wrong! This soba was different with cold soba.

Kabuto Masezoba, is another new comer in Pantai Indah Kapuk area. Kabuto means Japanese helmet, while mazesoba means mix. So before enjoying this delightful bowl soba, you have to mix it well. Do you need another addition of spices? Apparently not. Everything is prepared for you as original as they are in the kitchen. So you just have to mix and take a slurp! 

For their mazesoba, you can choose among original, sweet and spicy sauce. A portion of Kabuto Mazesoba worth IDR 138k. Might sounds pricy, but this luxurious bowl of soba contains imported beef and foie gras inside! You can also add some toppings like pork chasiu, chicken chasu, corn, etc.

I tried the original and spicy one, Both are good, but my heart goes to bowl of spicy soba. The taste itself is not overwhelming. It's heartwarmingly humble, a remainder that sometimes comfort food is all you need. Beef was tender and well seasoned. Combination of everything is complementing each other!
I also find their soba was kinda heavy. The noodle was kind springy, reminded me of Jakarta's type of noodle. For me, a bowl was too much in portion. I won't mind to share their generous portion though.

Beside soba, you can also choose for bowl of donburi instead. Their best seller, so called Kabuto Don, is IDR 138k. Another luxurious rice bowl with imported beef, foie gras, and truffle oil. This is another good flavor they have, but I do prefer spending all those calories on soba.

Pork chasiu for IDR 42k. Look at those shiny and glistening pork! Do you need further explanation?

Overall, Kabuto mazesoba offers a heartwarming bowl of soba and rice bowl. Another good addition to Jakarta's food industru. Keep up the good work!
