Abura Soba Yamatoten (Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, Jakarta)

Abura Soba

Abura Soba Yamatoten is the first restaurant that serves authentic hot soba in Jakarta. Apparently, they just opened their second outlet at Jakarta which is located at Grand Indonesia Shopping Town. (yay!) So, if you live in the southern or central part of Jakarta, you won't have to worry about driving all the way to Pantai Indah Kapuk to enjoy their soba anymore!

Interior wise, the place is quite small and I reckon they could accommodate up to 30 people in total. It is located at the east mall near Benedict and Uniqlo. The interior is similar with their outlet at Pantai Indah Kapuk, simple yet modern touch which gives off cozy feeling.

Let's get started with their food!

Abura Soba (IDR 59k)

Abura Soba is the original version of their hot soba which consists of chopped scallions, bamboo shoot, dried seaweed and sliced char-siu. The correct way to eat this is by pouring 2 rounds of vinegar and chili oil and then stir the noodle to mix the sauce while it's hot. Some people said that the original one is always the best and I do agree with that statement for this one, because it's freaking delicious!

Kare Abura Soba (IDR 65k)

Kare Abura Soba is basically hot soba topped with special homemade curry sauce. Oh and did I mention that you can choose the soba to be served with chicken or pork? I chose the one with pork and I found this one tasted pretty decent with quite strong curry flavor and smell!

Umewasabi Abura Soba (IDR 68k)

Umewasabi Abura Soba is one of their new invention which consists of cold soba served with chopped tomatoes, roasted chicken, fried lotus, dried seaweed and wasabi. I am not a big fan of cold main course, but I found this one tasted pretty decent and unique.

Chicken Karaage (IDR 38k)

The Chicken Karaage was nicely marinated and deeply fried which resulted in crispy yet soft and flavorful chicken.This is one of the must-have food along with the hot soba for me!

Soft Broiled Pork (IDR 48k)

If you are a sucker of soft broiled pork like me, I recommend you to order this one to accompany your meal. The Soft Broiled Pork was nicely marinated and it had a good texture, flavor and consistency. This one definitely one of the best soft broiled pork that I have ever had!

Overall, I had an amazing dinner at Abura Soba Yamatoten, their food tasted amazing as expected, the service was great and the place is good. Once again, congratulations for the opening of your second outlet and I wish best of luck for Abura Soba Yamatoten!
