Tora-Tora : Street-Side Japanese Cuisine

Apparently this sidewalk restaurant called Tora-Tora has been famous for a long time but I didn’t realize it. I just visited this place twice  so far, one being few years ago and the last one was recently. This restaurant was so simply decorated and took place on a sidewalk near Universitas Gajah Mada. At most times, you’ll find this restaurant packed with people, mostly youngsters. You might not recognize this place even though you pass by the street a lot. I’ll provide a map at the end of so walk with me throughout this post.

So What’s Up With Tora-Tora?

Here in Tora-Tora, their main specialties were Japanese food with local taste.  I don’t know what authentic Japanese food really tastes like but I’m pretty sure the flavor here has been adjusted to local palate. I came with some friends so there were various dishes for this post. Mostly their protein was based on beef and chicken but they play more on the ingredients.

First thing first, this is what I ordered, chicken katsu. I know what you might be thinking right now which is the obvious difference. It wasn’t like any ordinary chicken katsu I’ve ever tried since the batter wasn’t made of breadcrumbs or something similar. It’s basically wrapped with egg+flour batter. The flavor was great and the texture was pretty impressive though. Batter wasn’t hard to chew at all, in fact it’s more like tender and crunchy. I’ll explain the sauce and side dish later they’re similar to each other.

What My Friends Had At Tora-Tora

So my friends ordered 3 different dishes but I forgot to take one dish’s picture since it came later than the others.

The second dish on the table being yakimeshi or fried rice. To be honest, this wasn’t what I quite expected to see or try. I fully expected a Japanese style fried rice with unique taste or at least unique ‘Japanese’ style flavor. To me, that was quite similar to any common fried rice I’ve ever tried. So, unfortunately to say, this dish may not be my favorite of all. Thanks to all of my friends, I’m allowed to taste a sip/spoon of what they ordered (we share to each other though) so I’ve experience on more dishes than what I actually order. Content-wise, the yakimeshi at Tora-Tora wasn’t that bad at all. They serve a plate of fried rice which has pretty large portion and have lots of stuffs in it.

The other one was chicken wafuyaki. Up till now I’m not even sure if there’s a Japanese food called that way. Apparently they said (on the banner) that it’s sour chicken and served with beansprouts dish. Another unfortunate thing is, I can’t taste the sourness and so did my friends. I think it’s just stir fried chicken fillet up to the point it’s almost overcooked. The chicken even had some charred marks here and there. On the other hand, the beansprouts salad was great and I was satisfied with it. It’s slightly sweet but mainly salty even though no flavor was too strong. Too bad mine didn’t have that as the side salad.
Last but not least was a prawn tempura. I won’t go long with this one. This prawn tempura was basically similar to what I had but instead the main protein was prawn.

That Side Salad And Soup

Apparently for every dish, Tora-Tora plates it with side salad and normally it was like mine. The side salad contains chopped vegetables, especially cabbages and carrots. To top it, they poured mayonnaise-like salad dressing (or was it mayonnaise all along?) which was quite sweet and watery. Usually mayo would be really thick, right? Looks like we can call it ‘local mayonnaise’ then, lol.
Another thing is the bowl of soup. It didn’t actually feel like soup but more like dipping sauce instead. You only get about one fourth of the small red bowl there for the sweet dipping sauce. I’m not really sure what it’s composed of but probably it had some brown sugar, little bit of vinegar, and this X ingredients I haven’t discovered yet. Nonetheless, I like the dipping sauce.

And In The End..

To conclude them all, I personally think this tent-based restaurant was OK. You really can’t expect something so fancy like a 5-star diner in this hawker stall but at least, the dishes weren’t that bad. If anything, I might say to give more meat per portion since it’s pretty overprice. But yeah, personal opinion, personal experience, personal POV.

Anyway, I’m going to end my post here, visit this blog for daily foodie and gaming reviews, leave me comments below, follow my IG @bitethefood, and see you next time.


Apparently they have some store branches which are diners but this map was the one I had dinner at.
