Due to the number of positive responses of our previous post about AEON Mall BSD, AnakJajan decided to continue the story. This time we will be reviewing Food Culture inside AEON Mall.
Food Culture is one of many food court areas that you can find inside AEON Mall. The majority of tenants inside Food Culture are mostly Japanese food starting from yakitory, sushi, karaage, Japanese bakery, bento, okonomiyaki, teppanyaki, takoyaki, gyoza, kakigori, Japanese style Italian food till western food with Japan flavor influence.
Knowing the fact that this food court area is filled with mostly Japanese food makes me excited to explore Food Culture.
One of the brand that AnakJajan are quite familiar with is Kin No Torikara, a popular karaage snack brand from Japan that we could easily find anywhere in Japan.
KIN NO TORIKARA
Kin No Torikara offers a very simple selection of menu which is Karaage or deep fried battered chicken with different serving sizes.
One thing that makes Kin No Torikara interesting/ unique is the seasoning or sauce. They provide so many choices of seasoning and sauce that customer can easily choose and put on the karaage as much as they like. I usually put the sauce/ seasoning little by little as I personally love to try it all 🙂
Tokugawa is one of the most popular stalls inside Food Culture serving teppanyaki and okonomiyaki. They serve two types of okonomiyaki, Tokugawa style where they mix every ingredients with the batter and cook it together, and Hiroshima style where they cook every ingredients separately and stack it together.
Knowing that Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki is their best selling and most popular menu, AnakJajan couldn’t help not to try it. We tried the most complete one Hiroshima Seafood Noodle Special IDR 98k.
They cook the seafood (octopus, squid, shrimp), noodle, egg and batter separately and after that they stack every ingredients together topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise and katsuobushi or dried bonito flakes.
FYI, you can also order additional topping or ingredients for example extra melted cheese on top.
Gyoza or Japanese dumpling is the specialty of Toyofuku. Honestly we didn’t expect much but it turned out to be delicious. Thin yet elastic gyoza skin with sweet juicy filling, love it!
The other popular stall inside Food Culture would be Yamatoya. AnakJajan personally think they offer one of the best takoyaki in Jakarta and surrounding areas so far. The takoyaki was very enjoyable with melty texture, it would be perfect if they are more generous with the tako or octopus filling though.
Well, after the fourth stall we were quite full already, will be re-visiting Food Culture again next time to explore more as we had so much fun and enjoyed our meal there.
