SUSHI HIRO PANTAI INDAH KAPUK (PIK) - JAKARTA
As this post is written, Sushi Hiro has opened its door publicly for Japanese cuisine enthusiasts around two weeks, and soon enough, their stair sushi is like the stairway to heaven and quickly fill up my Instagram explore tab, and my timeline too. If you follow me on Snapchat, I just had my big lunch there earlier today and I am now sharing my experience to you! Sushi Hiro is located at what used to be a home of Hong Tang (I know right I can't believe they're closing it was like the champ a couple of years ago) just beside Dapur Buntut PIK. I like how Sushi Hiro looks from outside, it's just neat and minimalist with woos covering most of the exterior and interior, the huge logo should be catchy enough for you to notice, the logo is really cute, it's this fish shape formed from the modified SH letter. Creative much.
I honestly couldn't keep my eyes off the beautiful ornaments hanging above. They freaking hand cut and hang everything their own, effort must be recognized therefore lots of pictures of it on this post!
Best tip for good picture here: take the window seat. It's the only way to have natural light for your pictures here. I literally waited around 30 minutes for people to leave so that I can take the seat for me, and oh, you're looking at their famous assorted sushi stairs! So basically whatever sushi you order here will be presented with the stair (at least order 4 pieces because that's the minimum capacity up to 8 pieces per serving). The range of the menu here is HUGE, there are currently 200 menus to choose from and ranging from sushi, sashimi, moriawase, grilled, donburi, ramen and udon. Price range starts from IDR 20k-IDR 150k for food, and as cheap as IDR 5k for OCHA!
I might be obsessed with the sushi stair, I am happy enough just by looking at it. Major foodporn.
You can't just leave the premium selections neglected therefore I should try. First of all, for a premium set you will only need to pay IDR 145k? That's hardly IDR 20k per piece! The premium sushi stair set consist of Chutoro, Salmon, Ika, Ama Ebi, Unagi, Kanpachi, Ikura and Tamago (not in order). I didn't have all 8 as I shared this with my sis and her BF (but they told me what they had were yum), but I already pre-locked the Ebi, Chutoro and Ikura for me on a single glance, let's say I have eyes for expensive things and they were indeed really fresh!
The Hiro Deluxe Sashimi consist of Salmon, Maguro, Ika, Mirugai, Saba, Kapachi and Tamago. I have never been a fan of Saba (mackarel) so that was my least favorite, I opted for the classic goodness like the Salmon and Maguro, they were, yet again, fresh!
A plain must order. thin slice of premium Kagoshima wagyu meant to be had on a single bite. Sharing this was a regret, the seasoning was simple but flavorful with a hint of sweet.
I overuse the word "good" in this post, but hey that's the real deal. This was another menu that you shouldn't miss! Tender beef covering the rice and onsen tamago, DO NOT SHARE THIS and have it all in one single bite, thank me later after all that burst of flavor and texture squirting inside your mouth. Erotically more exciting than your boyfriend's c*m.
Do note that they have TWO OPERATING HOURS, details below.
