Like many Jakarta residents, I’m a mall rat, so here’s another addition of my -in between shopping-restaurant stop. Kobeshi by Shabu2 House is a buffet/all you can eat Shabu2 place in Pondok Indah Mall. The location is on second floor of the Street Gallery, on top of Union PIM. This place has a fancy look and really comfy, family friendly interior. By the look of it, the eatery has bunch of tempting looking dishes from salad, appetizers to desserts. The one I ordered today was the Classic Menu, everything is included with the exception of Tempura. Each person got their own mini Shabu2 pot, bottomless drinks (water and tea) are also included.
Classic Menu-All you can indulge for a IDR 158.000++/ person: The beef was limitless, but I’ve got more fat than meat, which you can see yourself from the picture. The soup tasted average, the Shabu2 sauce was mostly sour, needed more seasonings for my liking. The other Buffet dishes like Pasta, beef curry, beef yakiniku, etc wasn’t also worth the mention. But I guess we can’t really expect much for All You Can Eat meal. The vegetable was good quality though. The dessert table wasn’t a party either, only consisted of fruits, watery soft ice cream, some jellies, chocolate fountain with fruits and marshmallow, cookies and two kinds of cakes.
If you’re willing to spend more, there are other buffet choices with various price ranges. Like Regular Package (IDR 188.000) Classic Package with Australian beef, Chicken Steak and Ebi Tempura; Deluxe Package (IDR 288.000): Regular Package with US Beef and Sashimi; Wagyu Package (IDR 388.000): Deluxe Package with Wagyu Beef; Senior Package; Kids’ Menu and some a la carte menu.
My opinion about Kobeshi that it’s mostly gimmick and wasn’t memorable. But that’s only apply on the one that I ordered of course. I can’t really say about the rest. Maybe you have a different opinion?
