After their first outlet in Gandaria, South Jakarta, Tanpopo Japanese Izakaya Yatai has finally opened 2nd outlet in Pluit (across Pluit Village Mall) serving Teppanyaki, Hamayaki, Yakiniku, and Suki Shabu.
With Yatai as their concept, you can immediately get the Japanese street food vibes upon arriving. It’s easy to notice the street food stall with red lanterns.
For the menu here, just a quick info, all menu contains NO PORK & NO LARD, so it can be enjoyed by everyone plus they use no MSG. Here are our orders:
Teppanyaki USDA Short Rib IDR 45k
All time favorite, one of the must order every time we visit Tanpopo. Thinly sliced short ribs cooked beautifully on hot teppanyaki pan served with sauteed vegetables and garlic chips. The beef was tender and nicely seasoned. Uber yum!!
Teppanyaki Angus Tenderloin IDR 90k
For more meaty option, we got Angus Tenderloin with creamy sauce. It was decent yet enjoyable.
Yakiniku USDA Short Ribs IDR 35k // Yakiniku Angus Tenderloin IDR 80k
Specially for Yakiniku, we can grill it by ourselves on the table on hot charcoal grill. We ordered Angus Tenderloin and of course our favorite USDA Short Ribs.
Short Ribs was good, not too thick and not too thin, easy to cook. The Angus Tenderloin was a bit thick so it needs more time to cook. There are two types of sauce, savory and sweet as condiment, personally we love to dip the meat into the sauce before grilling it to give it more flavor.
Hamayaki Chicken Basil IDR 15k // Hamayaki Beef Maki IDR 20k // Hamayaki Karubi IDR 25k
The Japanese style bbq skewers were grilled over charcoal that explains the delightful smoky aroma. We really really LOVEEEE the Beef Maki, it’s basically rice wrapped with beef, uber yum! Must order!
Suki Shabu Sukiyaki (Soup + Vegetable) IDR 30k + Ramen IDR 15k
The Suki Shabu Sukiyaki comes with vegetables, you can order any beef, chicken or seafood add-ons to the broth or maybe Ramen noodle to make it more festive. The soup itself was enjoyable with well-balanced flavor between sweet and savory.
Suki Shabu Original (Soup + Vegetable) IDR 30k + Ramen IDR 15k
For Suki Shabu, Mr. Jajan prefers the original soup. It looks simple but nicely seasoned and comforting.
Crepe Suzette IDR 40k
A soft skin crepe with cold vanilla ice cream inside, coated with sugar and then torch-grilled to give the dessert a nice caramelization on the outside.
Overall, offering unique ambiance and experience, Tanpopo makes a great option for casual hangout in Pluit area especially if you miss Japan.
