Last month, I have an opportunity to foodtasting at Yukai Shabu Sushi. Yukai, as its name, is a Japanese restaurant which serves Japanese food like shabu, sushi, udon, teriyaki, and many more. It located at one of many food spot in Jakarta, Jalan Gunawarman. Not very spacious and decorated with Japanese ambience.
Yukai has a signature dish called Wagyu Quick Shabu and they claim that they serves the first quick Shabu in Jakarta. So, what I tried?
- Wagyu Quick Shabu (IDR 65K)
As I mention above, this is their signature dish. It serves in two bowls and one condiment plate. The first bowl consists of Ponza sauce and the other consist of beef wagyu, udon, pokcay, cabbage, shitake, meatballs, and tofu in hot water. If you don’t know how to make your Quick Shabu, simply ask the waiter and they will help you. You simply put anything you want like wagyu, udon, etc to Ponzu sauce and put seasoning in condiment plate too. Overall I love my Wagyu Quick Shabu except the shitake.
Yukai serves various sushi, and I tried four kind of their sushi. The sushi available in two sizes, regular and large. Regular size consists of 4 pieces sushi and Large size consists of 8 pieces sushi. I tried Crunchy Salmon, Yukai Roll, Baked Salmon Mentai, and Tuna Melts. All of them delicious! But my favorite is Crunchy Salmon.
- Crispy Chiken Teriyaki (IDR 42K)
- Wagyu Yaki Udon (IDR 65K)
This is the dry version of udon but more delicious. The wagyu was juicy and tender. Not forget to mention, it has 11 level of spiciness. Love it!
- Drinks (IDR 22-25K)
Not forget to mention, I tried several menu of drinks. They are Coffee Caramello, Butterscotch, Strawberry Short Cake, Turkish Delight, Cold Ocha, Tiramisu Vanilla, and Matcha. My favourites are Strawberry Short Cake and Turkish Delight. Refreshing!
- Matcha Ice Cream
That’s all for my lunch at Yukai Shabu Sushi. Thank you for the opportunity. If you craving for sushi, teriyaki, or wanna try quick shabu just simply go Yukai. Have a nice lunch or dinner, Foodie!
