Takosuki is located on the ‘hawker centre’ Pesanggrahan street. Takosuki specializes on serve Sukiyaki. Sukiyaki is a Japanese culinary dish which inspired from the Mongolian tradition or one pot cooking. They providing multiple soup flavors such as Spicy Miso and Ginger Chicken. Assorted veggies such as mushroom, cabbage, tofu and spinach are also boiled and served with a sesame sauce. Beside beef, for shabu shabu they also serving pork and seafood.
The place is very comfy, with Japanese-Chinese interior design style. They separate their room into 2 sections. In the first section, they provide the round table with 6 chairs. In the second section, they use couch and wood chair. Almost each table is outfitted with sukiyaki or shabu shabu pan/pot for grilled or boiled. On my first coming, I didn’t try their Sukiyaki. On that day I really craving for Chinese dish & dim sum.
I like to eat Steamed Carp Fish. Because it’s more healthy and taste good too. It’s cooked quite good, the sauce taste savory. Not bad, but nothing special about it, because I can find exactly the same dish at another place.
For their chef recommendation, I choose Crispy Fried Chicken. I think the seasoning is not well marinated or soaked in the meat. And the topping seasoning is not good as I’ve imagined before. Too ordinary. For me the perfect combination’s seasoning with fried chicken is balachan or terasi (in Indonesia). The best crispy balachan fried chicken according to my opinion is at Seroeni Restaurant (Plaza Senayan).
For veggies I order Mushroom Vegetables. This dish is not taste fabulous, I can only say: so so….They only sautéed 3 kind of mushrooms & assorted veggies with garlic. Well, I think I can cook this kind of dish at home. Quite disappointed!
Because I still feel hungry, I order their dim sum: Siomay and Chicken Feet. Both taste quite okay. Of course for dim sum, nothing can beat the Hongkong’s dimsum. Price range between 20 K to 80 K.
