We have a new favorite Japanese restaurant in Jakarta. And fortunately for us it is cheaper than Sekitei, which we reserve for more special occasions and romantic dinners. TD finally took me to Tsukinofune for my birthday weekend after raving about it for 2 weeks! =P
UPDATE: This restaurant has closed down. Too bad as it was my favorite Japanese restaurant in Jakarta. According to Michael, the chef has moved to Kamogawa in Pavilion. Not sure where it is but will definitely do a little more research.
It’s a casual resto, that according to TD is always filled with Japanese customers whenever they eat there. (Always a good sign!)
It also came with chawan mushi (egg custard, but the name literally “tea cup steam” or “steamed in a tea bowl,” salad, miso soup, fried tofu (with a salty topping) and dessert. I’ve never met a chawan mushi I liked, so liking the chawanmushi was a first for me!
Everything was SO delicious and pretty. The servers were attentive to every detail (except they seemed to disappear at the end of the meal) and you could tell that careful thought was made with every aspect of the restaurant – even the water glass had a creative design! Totally my kind of resto!
Below are the details in case you wanna try it out. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
