SUSHI HIRO KELAPA GADING - JAKARTA
Review of Sushi Hiro Pantai Indah Kapuk -> HERE
Sushi Hiro from outside, as you can see this outlet's way more spacious compared to their PIK outlet.
Interior! Still those self-cut paper craft ornaments decorating the ceiling and major wood application for those homey, earthy Japanese vibe
I am going to keep this review short and to the point, that's because the menus in this outlet are similar to their PIK outlet but range wise, wider and there are several menus that I haven't tried before so let's explore them together!
Do note that they adapt the same opening hour with their PIK outlet, so they only open for lunch and dinner (details at the end of this post).
NOW BRACE YOURSELF WITH MAJOR SUSHI, SASHIMI AND JAPANESE CUISINE PORN!
Price range for food here starts from IDR 20k-300k for food and as cheap as IDR 5k for drink
Overview of what I had for lunch that day and believe me this was all just for me and my sister.
Sushi Moriawase (Sushi Stairs)
Their Sushi Stairs has got to be the highlight of this restaurant as they were the first to introduce this style and concept, and I want to emphasize my review for the right one aka Hiro Salmon Sushi (IDR 90k) which consist of Salmon Sushi, Aburi Salmon, Aburi Salmon Cheese and Aburi Salmon Mentai, the salmon was fresh and that's something that should be the emphasize point, if the salmon itself is not fresh then how can you expect the rest of the dining experience to be good?
If you want your order to be served with their wooden stair, then minimum order of 4 and maximum of 8 is required.
Aburi Salmon Cheese
What I love about Sushi Hiro is the fact that they're willing to go out of the box and creatively mix few ingredients on a single sushi for the sake of uniqueness and burst of flavor, from the picture below you can see the kind of sushi that you don't normally see at most traditional Japanese restaurants and if you notice there are ones with Foie Gras and Beef or even Beef, Foie Gras, Uni and Fish a single serving or combos in between, because there are so many to choose all you gotta do when you dine here is to take your time and figure what you really want to order here, and for further reference do check out my review of their PIK outlet.
I personally would recommend their Hotate Uni (IDR 80k), Aburi Beef Onsen Egg Roll (IDR 40k) and Otoro Uni (IDR 138k), anything with uni = me sold.
Fantastic Four - IDR 150k/each
From their ala-carte menu is this Fantastic Four: sushi with Uni, Foie Gras, Beef and Scallop in a single bite, one of my personal favorite for its chewy-creamy texture and burst of flavor (do have this on a single mouthful).
Salmon Lava Chirasi
Kanpachi Uni Carpaccio
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.
That was pretty much everything that I had in the new Sushi Hiro Kelapa Gading, of course I was totally satisfied and I am a regular customer at their PIK outlet (probably been over 10 times there and mostly brought my foreign friends to have dinner there) so reviewing this was pretty much like sharing more of my love towards this brand. I really don't give a shit about what most people say about Sushi Hiro about how "Indonesianized" their Japanese food is because I think despite all the behind the scenes and especially when it comes to business, it's either your customers like or don't like your food, you can't expect each of your customer to understand your idealism, and judging from how successful they are I think most people who dine here found their food to be delicious and I can predict a long lasting career, and I wish them all the best of luck!
