Kushiyaki Umena Dori

Last month, we went to Plaza Senayan for lunch after checking out a computer exhibition at the Jakarta Convention Center. We decided to have lunch at Kushiyaki Umena Dori, a Japanese restaurant right across Marutama Ramen. The place is not big with dim lighting and Japanese decorations, but it has a yakitori bar and tatami seating. We decided to sit at the tatami area.

Kushiyaki Umena Dori specializes in yakitori or kushiyaki (charchoal-grilled skewers), but they also have a la carte menu, salad, kamameshi (steamed rice pot with various ingredients), donburi, soba, oden etc. So we decided to order a pot of hotate sansai kamameshi (rice cooked with scallop and some edible wild plants) 63K to share. We also ordered several sticks of kushiyaki: butabara negimiso (pork bacon) 22,5K, gyutan niniku (beef tongue garlic soy sauce) 18K, nasu butamaki (eggplant rolled pork bacon) 18K. The kamameshi was delicious, not overly seasoned. The scallop was fresh and cooked right. The greens were great too, although some were quite fibrous. The kushiyakis were still juicy, not over grilled and salt was used sparingly. Overall, I love this place. It’ll be my go-to place whenever I have a craving for yakitori/kushiyaki.
