After reading the article on Kompas, Last week we visited a place called Kikugawa, maybe this is the oldest Japanese restaurant in Jakarta (open since 1969). I like the entrance of this place, it looks like a mini Japanese garden. The restaurant was decorated in a simple and humble Japanese style, dimly lit lighting created a warm ambience, with red covered table and bamboo chair. Japanese intrumental music was playing in the background.
After studying the menu, we decided to order : Kiku Set (consist of sashimi, tempura, sukiyaki & yakitori served with gohan and miso soup) 58K and Oyako Donburi (served with miso shiru and salad)35K, Ogura ice cream 15K with green tea (refill) 12K. To be honest, the oyakodon was only so so, they put too much spring onion in the egg batter, and the taste was a bit bland. The Kiku Set was OK, although the tuna sashimi portion was too small, but I like the yakiniku & tempura. After the meal, they served us a plate of sliced apple. Overall the service was good, the price was very reasonable, but there’s no separation between smoking & non smoking area.
According to the guess sitting on the table next to us, They already came last Saturday night but couldn’t get a table. the place was so crowded because everyone want to try what they read at Kompas 🙂
