OKIROBAR - GRAND INDONESIA, JAKARTA

Excited when I know there's a new join in Grand Indonesia shopping town Jakarta. Looks like this mall keep giving us a new place to have dining. Like this one, Okirobar, a new Japanese restaurant that become a new member since last April.


Looking at their restaurant, suddenly make my eyes so bright. With the colorful yet edgy look on this restaurant, make every single corner from Okirobar worth to shot.


Okirobar have an open kitchen concept. where you can sit at their bar while  you watching the Chef making your order on their flat iron. The situation can be a bit hot from the smoke of the stove if they have full packed order from their customers. But if you don't mind with a little heat, you can seat at the bar. Or perhaps you can just sit in their uber cute sofa.


Beside their regular menu, Okirobar also allowed their customers to customize their Okonomiyaki, Monjayaki and Negiyaki  as they like. Pick your 3 favorite toppings from the shelves then give to the servers.


STARTER


TAIYAKI (REDBEAN / CHOCOLATE & CHEESE) - IDR 35.000
The warm snack from Okirobar is really good. The 1st thing I tried is this fish shaped Japanese cake that is so fluffy and moist. Better eat it while it still warm to get the best texture of the filling and the cake.

ENOKI FRIES - IDR 22.000
Not so good looking appearance, but the taste quite good. It so crisp and crunchy.

YAKITORI


KING MUSHROOM - IDR 15.000
This king  mushroom is so delicate and  Nice seasoning. Love it.


PORK BELLY - IDR 23.000 - NON HALAL

DRINKS


There's a drink station that you can have it here at Okiro Bar. And the great thing it's BOTTOMLESS! Yeeaaii... They have green tea, coffee, tea, chocolate milk and lemon tea.

THE STAR
Okiro Bar serve  Okonomiyaki, Monjayaki and Negiyaki. That day Okiro Bar served us their best of those 3. And also Okiro Bar gave us a chance to cook one of their menu. Yes... I cooked! Don't laugh...


OKONOMIYAKI - CARAMELIZE WAGYU HIROSHIMA - IDR 159.000 (M), IDR 219.000 (L)
Okonomiyaki is a savory Japan's pancake that topped with various toppings. The main base of of this okonomiyaki are usually shredded cabbage, eggs, water and flour. Here at Okiro Bar, we served their signature Okonomiyaki that consist of caramelize wagyu beef, crispy beef bacon, enoki mushroom, soba (cold noodle) and topped with extra sunny side egg with scallion and katsuboshi (a dried fermented fish). The combination of those ingredients with their savory and sweet thick sauce make this Okonomiyaki is outstanding. It melt in your mouth right away. Best eat when it still warm.

The based of Negiyaki

NEGIYAKI - IDR 50.000
Negiyaki is another version of Okonomiyaki where the base is liquid dough like crepes cooked with lots of green leeks. Actually I'm not a big fan of green leeks. Sometimes it have a very strong taste and aroma. But, here since it topped with lots of toppings, so the toppings a bit covered the green leeks  taste. Here we have Negiyaki topped with fish ball karage, melted cheese, katsuboshi and another green leeks. Surprisingy, the taste is good. The green leeks not too strong like I'm worried earlier.

Aannndd.... OMG! I cooked that Negiyaki above with my own topping. Getting nervous at the beginning. Well its a crepes based with tons of green leeks. What if I turn it into soome  kind a dirt? Hahhahaha...


Darn! How is that Chef on TV still fab in front of a hot stove without sweating like a pig? LOL...
Anyway that’s me in action

And voila! that is my creation above.So, I made Negiyaki with Salmon as a star. I prefer choose Salmon because I saw my contender already packed their topping with beef and pork. So I combine the salmon with enoki mushroom and cheese. Topped with lots of katsuboshi and mayonnaise. It turned out to be yuuummm... *PukPuk my self LOL


Too bad I don't have a chance to get a Monjayaki picture. Beside Okonomiyaki, Negiyaki and Monjayaki, Okiro Bar also have Takoyaki ( a ball shape Japanese snacks made from wheat-flour). Unlike the Okonomiyaki, the takoyaki price is more affordable.  

DESSERT


PANCAKE (SNICKER / REDBEAN) - IDR 40.000
This thin crepes is so good. Filled with snicker (as a snicker bar) and topped with chocolate sauce. Served with Matcha green tea. Also available in redbean flavor.


ORIGINAL CREPES
2 folded Original Pancake served with hot chocolate sauce.

At the end... Okiro bar place quite fun to visit. They have a great food with a great quality. Keep up the good work guys! Good Luck
