Calling all the sushi lovers here! We got a new player in sushi resto in PIK with its unique ‘Sushi Tangga’. The sushi pieces are served with the wooden small stairs on the table. It had been very popular among food bloggers and instagram users to come to Sushi Hiro just to tkae an instagrammable photo with the ‘Sushi Tangga’. Well, I had been to Sushi Hiro twice and there are some improvements.
At first, there was only one floor for the resto and now, there is 2nd floor. Next, the improvement can be seen form the menu book. From just a bundle of papers without any pictures, now you can have a big menu book with good-big-appetizing pictures.
The place was small with two-story building, well-decorated with Japanese essence and wooden furniture. The ceiling was decorated with flower papers. The place was good for hangout and dinner. I think sushi is the best for dinner. Some changes in the sushi menu.
Before, you can choose all types of sushi to be placed on the wooden stairs. Now, you have to choose it only from the menu book. There are some package for the ‘Sushi Tangga’ ranging from 90k to 300k. Other kinds of sushi were just served on small plates. The idea is creative in this global competition on social media. The restaurants with unique food and pretty place could bare all the struggles.
For the sushi menu, I chose Sushi Aburi, Salmon Aburi Cheese, Salmon Avocado Roll, Salmon and Tuna Sashimi, Maguro sashimi, Salmon gunkan, and salmon volcano. The taste were yummy and could compete well with its competitors in Pluit area. I love it! The price was pretty affordable with its freshness slice of sashimi. So yummy!
For the a la carte, Chicken Katsu Curry rice and Gyutan don were chosen. The katsu curry rice was good, crispy chicken katsu belnded well with the thick curry. Yummy! The portion was quite big for one person. Better to share with your friends if you wan to eat sushi.
The Gyutan don was disappointed since the taste and aroma was dominantly filled with garlic flavor. The beef aroma and taste were covered by garlic. It seems you eat so much of fried garlic. For those who do not like garlic, you can choose another menu. The beef slice were thick, but the texture was rubbery. Maybe it was not my lucky day to try this menu. The portion was smaller than curry rice and it is possible to finish all the gyutan don and having another sushi pieces =P
If you are craving for sushi, go to Sushi Hiro immediately and taste the ‘Sushi Tangga’. It is the best you come at 5.30 pm when the resto starts to open. Otherwise, you must queue for the long waiting list.
For the service, it was so-so since the resto was full of crowd. Better to order as fast as you can before the other tables. The price was ranged from the cheapest to the highest, but if you compare the price with the taste, worth it! Well, Japanese food lovers must come to Sushi Hiro. Bon appetite!
