Established since 1994, Sushi Ippachi has moved to new location Wisma BNI 46, Sudirman Street, Jakarta. As the name suggests, authentic sushi and sashimi are their specialty using only the freshest ingredients airflown directly from Japan.
Previously located, Wisma Kyoei Prince and Plaza Senayan Arcadia, Sushi Ippachi has moved to Wisma BNI 46 recently. The restaurant decor is lovely with traditional Japanese ornaments and a few VIP rooms including tatami rooms.
This year, the restaurant has turned 25 years old. During our visit, we saw promo pamphlet that they’re having 15% OFF from 1-31 Aug for food menu to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
Offering wide variety of dishes, Ippachi has different menu for lunch and dinner. Since there are so many options of dishes, we ordered a few menu based on the chef’s recommendation.
Matsu Sashimi IDR 580k
The assorted sashimi platter has 6 varieties of ingredients, just by looking at the shiny color, we can already tell that it’s going to taste good.
All of them were superb, very fresh and sweet with nice bouncy texture, as good as the one we had in Japan. Double thumbs up!
Sakura Nigiri Sushi
The sushi set consists of 12 pieces of assorted nigiri, maki and tamagoyaki. All of them were beautifully made and very delicious. We love the fact that they use just the right size of sushi rice to let the natural taste of fresh seafood shine.
Salmon Temaki IDR 50k & Spicy Tuna Temaki IDR 50k
Being a big fan of temaki sushi, we couldn’t miss the chance of having it. The spicy tuna temaki was our favorite with generous minced tuna in it and nice spicy kick.
Aburi Salmon Sushi IDR 50k/ pc
Lightly torched, the salmon was soooo soft and melt in the mouth easily topped with caramelized onion for nice sweet flavor kick. It was so good, definitely our top favorite at Ippachi.
California Maki IDR 60k/ 4 pcs
Nicely executed just the way we like with well balanced seasoning, we couldn’t ask for more.
Chirasi Sushi + Noodle & Salad IDR 150k (Lunch Set)
This chirashi sushi was part of lunch set menu, considering the generous ingredients, IDR 150k including noodle and salad is really a good deal! You can tell that they’re using great ingredients because simple ingredient like crab stick is already really good, it doesn’t taste like the cheap supermarket crab stick at all. Oishi!
Chicken Katsu Don IDR 85k
I always have a soft spot for katsudon and Ippachi’s chicken katsudon has won my heart. Fluffy rice, wonderfully fragrant, well balanced seasoning with nice umami kick, thick and juicy chicken katsu, soooo good I think it has officially become my top 1 favorite Katsudon in town.
To end our meal, we were given complimentary Dobinmushi or traditional Japanese seafood broth with shrimp, fish and mushroom in it.
Mr. Jajan had a chance to chat with the chef that has worked for 25 years there. He said that they have omakase packages too starting from IDR 1mio. Considering all the good dishes we had and the quality of ingredients, we look forward to try their omakase someday.
Overall, we left the restaurant with full and happy tummies, great authentic taste plus undoubtedly good quality of ingredients, a good place like this seriously needs more publicity. If you’re looking for good quality of authentic Japanese sushi and sashimi, we highly recommend you to visit Ippachi.
