Both bro and I have been craving for steamboat since months ago. Anything soup-y la. So we've been keeping our eyes and ears for any place serving decent steamboat. That's when he came across this family restaurant called "Washoku Sato". A newly opened restaurant in Mall of Indonesia, who offered a nice "All You Can Eat Shabu - Shabu" deal of Pay 1 for 2! Sugoiiii~~~~
Claimed as the largest chains of Japanese Family Restaurant with 197 branches spread across Japan, we were excited to give it a try! From what I know, they've opened their first restaurant's branch here in Jakarta. But they're far from where I am...So if their other branches are closer to you, you can give it a try there!
Central Park 1st Floor No. 118 - 119
Phone : (021) 2920 0232
Queued for awhile as there's a number of people ahead of us who were also waiting to be seated. Maybe they're interested in the offer too! Hahaha...
The interior for this place were pretty much the same as any other Japanese restaurants that I've been to. Quite cozy coz it wasn't noisy that day.
|All You Can Eat Shabu - Shabu Menu|
Their Shabu - Shabu is separated into 2 different range: Sato Shabu for the price of IDR 158k and Sato Shabu Premium for the price of IDR 188k. The only difference about these two choices are the numbers of options (food to choose from). With Sato Sabu offering a variety of 31 different menu and Premium leading at 80!
I'd recommend going for the premium one as the price difference is not much. With just a slight difference in price you get to enjoy a variety of 80 menus. Good deal...yes?
|Choices you get for SATO SHABU|
|Choices you get from choosing SATO SHABU PREMIUM|
(31 menu from Sato Shabu + additional 49 menu)
|Terms and Conditions|
Please read on the terms and conditions above as this place is a little bit different compared to other "all you can eat" restaurants. Especially their time limit of 1 and 30 minutes and that you can only make your order during the first one hour.
On a side note, Washoku Sato serve ala-carte menu too...In case you're not in the mood for Shabu - Shabu but wanted to eat their ala - carte instead. Anyway, after choosing which of the two choices you'd like to go for, you get to choose two soup base.
Choices of soup base :
Chanko Soup (Dashi or chicken broth soup base)
Katsuo Soup (Bonito Broth)
Konbu Soup (Kelp)
Pirikara Soup (Hot & Spicy)
Sukiyaki (A mixture of sake, soy sauce, sugar, mirin and dashi)
Sorry if I make any mistakes on the soup explanation. The descriptions are based solely on what I know. And so Bro ended up with Chanko Soup while I went for their Konbu Soup. Why Konbu? Coz I'm a big fans of Gintama's Kagura and she happened to eat Konbu alot. FML for having anime affecting my choices of food in real life. HAHAHA!
|Starter Set comes with this 3|
|Love the details on the mushroom and flowers!|
|"Australian Rib-eye Beef" Fresh and juicy!|
|"US Short Plate Beef" These are good too!|
|CHANKO SOUP (LEFT) KONBU SOUP (RIGHT)|
As it was pretty late and I only ate a lil bit in the afternoon as I'm busy with work (no time for lunch)...so at the end I just toss everything inside the bowl. That's why you see those meat lying inside instead of dipping them...LOL!
I didn't try bro's Chanko Soup. So I don't know how to explain the taste in details. Plus there's no spoon and I don't know why are we not asking for any spoon. Perhaps too shy to ask coz we saw none of the table have spoon on their table. LOL! Didn't get to taste my own Konbu Soup too. But from eating my veggies and such I can say that the soup is refreshing and light! In my opinion these soup gives off a feeling of "HEALTHY" soup!
|Dipping sauce and such|
(With missing Pirikara Miso which I wanted to try so much!)
For your info they'll give you a sheet of papers with names of foods that you can choose from for you to tick and order. Each order with the max. order of 10 items. And so here comes our choice of food!
|2 sets of Nigiri Sushi Sakura|
This is our fav! All three were soooo GOOD! Especially the salmon! So fresh and milky~ Not to forget that the size of the sushi rice is just perfect! It fits in the mouth! HAHAHA~~
|Salmon Skin Fry|
Tried only one of this and I find it to be crispy, hard, dry and tasteless. But according to bro who ate all of them, some of it were good. Especially those with some of the meats.
|Pirikara Tori Kaarage|
I like this one! Juicy and fresh! Though to be picky I love the one sold at Ippeke Komachi better. The one sold there were more flavorful. Flavorful as in that it was well marinated.
|More servings on Nigiri Sushi Sakura + Gunkan Sushi|
|Salmon Kushikatsu & Potato Cheese|
Don't be deceived by its pale look. These were good! They did a good job with these two. Not overcooked and I love how the cheese melts~
Finally I tried Kakigori!!! Had been seeing them in J-Dorama and animes but never actually tried them in real life. And so they are shaved iced poured with syrups! Super sweet! Hahaha
Dunno why this one tasted so perfume-y. But it gets better the longer you ate them! Hahaha...simply magical!
Above are the lists of the food that we ordered. Minus the crab stick and Chawan Mushi which they missed serving it to us. Both also the one I ordered! HAHAHA! Why la...but it's a blessing in disguise since we were full at that time. However I'd love to try their Chawan Mushi as it's a must food for me to eat in every Japanese restaurant! Hehe...
Don't ask me why there's Wafu Miso beside the Ice Ocha...I have no idea either. Hahaha...anyway this dinner costs us IDR 234.2k with tax and service charge included. Ocha too! Twice the current price once the promo ended which it has. Worth the price I would say~ So...what you'd say? Wanna give it a try? *winks*
