Kobe by Shabu Shabu House: Pondok Indah Mall

If you can name All You Can Eat restaurant in Jakarta, there are some but how about AYCE Japanese restaurant? Yes, I'm talking about a new spot here in one of the hippest shopping mall in south Jakarta, Kobe by Shabu Shabu House. This place offers wide range selections from sushi, tempura, to mouthwatering cakes. OK, shall we start with Chawanmushi? Or maybe dim sum? "Wait, seriously dim sum? Well, a side from Japanese food, actually they also have some menus that is most-likely influenced by Chinese cuisine such as fried rice, stir-fried noodles, and dim sum.

Beef Hamburg or Gyudon? Both were great, but I prefer their Gyudon. Thinly sliced beef and onion over hot steamed rice, just like one from Japanese fast food restaurant. 

Shabu-Shabu and Steak

All you can eat shabu-shabu sounds very common but steak? I don't think so. Here they have two package, regular and deluxe. The package includes everything from the food stations, shabu-shabu, and steak with choices of demi-glace, shoyu butter, or mushroom sauce. The difference is for deluxe package, you can have wagyu beef for the steak, and good news for beef lover, you can order it more than once.

Noodles and Tempura
Another interesting part here is the noodle station, it's where you can cook your own ramen. Tempura serves with delicious gingery sauce, my tendency to choose prawn and sweet potato when it comes to tempura. More to try, katsu, karaage, and kare.. I mean Japanese curry!

Tempting Desserts
From cute macarons to mini cakes, fresh fruits to be dipped into chocolate fondue, and my weakness, matcha soft serve. They have vanilla, matcha, and vanilla-matcha twist soft serve with various toppings to choose.

Most of the dishes were nice though not as scrumptious as ones from a la carte restaurants. But it's more than I expected for the price to paid for.

Regular Package:
Weekday: IDR 149.000++
Weekend: IDR 177.000++

Deluxe Package:
Weekday: IDR 249.000++
Weekend: IDR 299.000++
