 Donburi Ichiya

There are more than 10 types of rice bowl that guest can expect here. Ranging from the classic one like grilled chicken to the fanciest one using melted cheese on top like chicken karaage mayo is all elegant and truly eye-catching. How about the price? Fred not, every menu is just affordable as you expected. Let's take a peek.

Having 4 outlets across Jakarta give you more chances to find the nearest one with your office/home. One that you see here is located at Neo Soho exactly at West Jakarta. Realized it or not, every store got a similar design that put emphasis on traditional Japanese interior. With wooden furniture, simple food gallery, and old Japanese wallpapers, guest will find more comfort here. The warmth hospitality from each staff also brings back the good mood and positive atmosphere for great dining experience.

Self-Service

 Self-Service

Everything is self-service. Just put an order for any menu that you like the most along with any additional topping or condiments if necessary. Each menu comes in two different sizes: regular or mini. My suggestion is to order the regular one since it comes in a better presentation, better flavor, and more meat. Meanwhile, for the additional toppings just go with melted cheese or onsen egg. Both elements are not only looking stunning but adding more texture into your meal. The rest of them is quite standard, though. 

Chikuwa Cheese and Beef Croquette

 Chikuwa Cheese and Beef Croquette

Start strong with remarkable side dishes called Chikuwa Cheese (IDR 14.545) and Beef Croquette (IDR 10.909). The typical Japanese finger foods that got a crispy exterior and meaty interior like no other. Some of you might be saying, it looks so simple and easy to make at home. Somehow, I do agree with you. But, the taste for this menu is quite satisfying and in terms of price, it is still reasonable as well.

 Yakitori Don

Moving on to the entrée, Yakitori Don (IDR 36.364K / Regular) is a nice way to enjoy this venue a lot. The char-grilled chicken got a nice smoky flavor with remarkable juicy texture. Dressed with garlic butter sauce and spring onion, this menu is not only salty but absolutely fragrant.

 Gyutandon

The crowd pleaser menu is here, Gyutandon (IDR 65.454K / Regular). Featuring the nicely cooked meat with special homemade sauce then finished with extra melted cheese results in ultra savory flavor like no other. Creamy, tender and juicy on every bite of it. What makes it even attracting is the torching process of that cheese at first. Just watch it gently and enjoy your meal.

 Spicy Mayo Karaage with Tamago Yaki

For the beverage, just go with Hot Ocha or Cold Ocha which is free refill. Any kind of canned drinks also available in moderate fare.

Donburi Ichiya is absolutely worth a try. Each menu is made fresh upon order and taste undeniably delicious. Give it a try for Gyutandon and Spicy Mayo Karaage with Tamago Yaki since both menu is the best-seller one here. Juicy, tender and fantastic. Within that price tag, I will definitely come back for more.
