Dear fellow tasters,
A couple months back, my friends and I were invited by two friends for a joint dinner treat and the choice of place was a yakiniku restaurant located on the 30th floor of Graha Mandiri tower, just close to Bundaran HI landmark. Omori, the name of the place, offers all-you-can-eat beef yakiniku for around 120k++ per pax, with bonus the spectacular night (or day, depends on lunch or dinner) city view from 30 story-high. Other food and drinks are also available a la carte.
The beef yakiniku set consisted of a plate of sliced beef and vegetables, a small bowl of kimchi (quite tasty, liking it), miso soup, and if I’m not mistaken, the refillable rice and fruit platter dessert was also included. Each person got one set and the all-you-can-eat part was only for the beef and vegetables, save the shitake mushroom which I unfortunately liked. The miso soup was all-you-can-drink as well. Thus, the grilling began and the waitresses kindly offered to do it for us which was a good thing cause all we needed to do was to chew down the delicious meat.
Nevertheless, my friend, who was paying, felt that eating beef alone was kind of boring, so she ordered a seafood yakiniku set with scallop, squid, cod fish, and salmon. Taste wise, the food was pretty enjoyable and all of us felt like we had enough of yakiniku for a whole month. As for the service, we were quite pleased by the way the grilling was done for us and the fact that the grill was replaced so many times, though I couldn’t help noticing that by the time we finished the first batch of meat, the beef slices subsequently served were of a lesser quality and they were grilled a bit rashly by the waitresses. All in all, we had a great time there, munching and conversing, and of course taking lots of pictures. We might even try for next time the next-door sister shabu-shabu restaurant, Yakoya.
PS: If you happen to dine there, do stop by the restroom to enjoy a great city view while relieving yourself
The taster’s notes:
Favorite dish – the yakiniku of course
What to try next time – other yakiniku menu, or try the shabu-shabu at Yakoya
