Yamatoten Abura Soba - The BEST Soba In Jakarta!

The best soba house in Jakarta is finally here! Originated from Kitatama District of Tokyo in the early of 1950s, now Abura Soba has been expanded unto a big F&B industry in South East Asia. Literally Abura Soba means "Oil Noodles", a typical noodle that does not require a soup - base. Probably people will be a little bit confused by it is appearance, but once you try you will get addictive for it.

Walk in through their area always remind me a true definition of japanese restaurant. Not too big, but i found my comfort here. Sometimes a fancy restaurant does not impressed me a lot. What is matter the most right now is flavour and presentation. If it is not suit me well, i would not come back for the second time.

Then, all you need to know here is their Abura Soba (IDR 59K/IDR 63K) is absolutely must try! The noodle is nicely cooked while the whole topping seems works really well to get paired with that noodle. Surrounded by spring onions, sesame seeds, bamboo shots, dry seawets and slices of tender meat pork this typical noodle would be your favourite dishes all the time.

If you are looking for the spicy one, i think Jya - Jya Abura Soba (IDR 68K/IDR 72K) could be your right decision. This type of noodle is more simple. You will see a minced meat in sweet soy bean paste paired with that cold noodle. In Korea, i oftenly found this as Jajangmyeon. But in Japan, they call it as Jya - Jya Abura Soba. Same type of dishes with gorgeous flavour.

People who are avoid noodle dishes, should not be worry anymore. Just try their magnificent Shigure Don (IDR 69K) and you will be happy. A minced pork with special sauce served with hot steamy rice and poached egg definitely impressed me forever. Once you mixed it, all of the aromas will be comes out and just try it for more guilty pleasure.

Sometimes an additional side dish like Handmade Dumpling (IDR 32K) also essential. It is totally dense, full of meat and rich of flavour. Once you bite it, you will found a lot of ingridients that works really well on your mouth.

Yamatoten Abura Soba is currently on top of my japanese noodle list. They served a magnificent dishes with affordable price. I will visit this place more often start from now.
