If you’re a Japanese food lover in Jakarta, you probably have heard all the buzz about Tontoki Japanese Restaurant. This place is located at MidPlaza building, an authentic looking Japanese restaurant with dark walls and mostly Tatami seating. The eatery was packed with Japanese and local people in lunch hour, reservation ahead is very recommended. Although the place is small, its two floors can accommodate quite many customers and I should warn you that this place Only serve Pork dishes.
The menu for lunch are all available in Set Menus which included: Rice, Miso Soup, Salad and Yakult drink.
Gyoza Yaki (IDR 48.000): Grilled Japanese style dumplings. The Gyoza skin was thin but tasty, the filing was generous and delicious.
Honey Suki BBQ Set (IDR 86.000): I was particularly fond of the unique BBQ sauce. It’s sweet savory and has a mixed taste of both Japanese and Western barbecue sauces. The Pork rib meat (although it’s fatty) was deep in flavor too.
Rosu Katsu Set (IDR 76.000): Deep fried pork sirloin cutlet. The pork meat was kinda tough, but the fried coating was crunchy and delicious. It’s an average dish for me.
Tontoki Don Set (IDR 86.000): Pork belly stamina bowl. Could be the most sinfully delicious dish they have here. The pork belly was super fatty but I guess that’s the beauty of it cause it’s succulent and The garlic sauce was sweet and burst with flavor! Couldn’t get enough of it!
Coming out of my lunch from Tontoki I felt happily stuffed and extra fatty too! But the food was delicious, and wasn’t overpriced too. What more could a die hard foodie asks for?!
