This place is currently the most hip and exciting sushi place in jakarta utara. Its located at Pantai Indah Kapuk and you will always see a long line of customers if you come on the weekends. Do reserve in advance if you plan to come on large grup.
Sushi Hiro is a japanese fusion sushi restaurant that introduce variation of sushi dished that even a beginner and non raw eater can enjoy their foods.
They serve their sushi in a unique way, instead of putting it in a flat plate, they presents their sushi in a stair like platform. It such a photogenic presentation that i took more time snapping picture instead of eating it.
i purposely ordered all the cooked sushi to see whether the taste is as delicious as the fresh one. It was actually better than i predicted, the aburi salmon is melted inside my mouth, and doesn’t leave a fishy aftertaste.
Another sushi that catch my attention is their aburi beef sushi, its sound a bit odd but actually its taste delish! Its fragrant and the meat is not dry at all.
Other dish that i ordered is their salmon tar-tar, and once again its delicious. It looks simple, but once you start eating it you can’t stop. The salmon is fresh and the herb on their potato salad really fragrant with a hint of spicy note. the only backdown is that their portion is quite small that i finished it in a blink of eye.
Don’t forget to also try their mix carpaccio, it consists with salmon and hirame sashimi dressed in ponzu sauce. A normal carpaccio ussually using lemon as their base sauce, but Sushi Hiro actually using japanese ponzu sauce as their carpaccio dressing, such an innovation.
As for their presentation its not really that appetizing, but wait till you put it in your mouth. Its bursting with flavour and the ponzu really is the hero of the dish.
