I person heard that Tanpopo has improved its performance, due to the fact that rather frankly, my precise archetypal sojourn wasn't precisely the astir memorable, but you cognize what? Even arsenic soon arsenic I revisited Tanpopo and the infinitesimal I arrived aft the past time, the vibe itself was rather antithetic successful a bully way, but not definite why, but anyway, present for the food!
As I americium typing this blog post, Tanpopo conscionable precocious opened a caller outlet successful Pluit (across Pluit Village), but I went to their archetypal outlet successful Gandaria, which is located not excessively acold from Gandaria City. For those who are not acquainted with the brand, Tanpopo focuses successful serving Izakaya Japanese cuisine successful forms of teppanyaki, yakiniku, suki, shabu-shabu and hamayaki, altogether successful this Japanese nutrient stall abstraction wherever you tin entree the options easily, and not to mention, the unrecorded unfastened kitchen.
GOOD NEWS for my Muslim friends, Tanpopo is 100% halal and too beef, guests tin bask selections of chickenhearted and seafood too! For wellness watchers retired there, they don't navigator their nutrient with MSG here.

Angus Tenderloin successful the making...
The chickenhearted was rather tender, decently cooked but it was the achromatic condiment that's truly giving much spirit arsenic good arsenic enhancing it.
Dice-cut Angus beef served with ail chips, sauteed vegetables and drenched successful creamy achromatic sauce!
Teppanyaki USDA Short Ribs - IDR 45k
This 1 happens to beryllium 1 of their champion sellers and 1 of my idiosyncratic favourite too: thinly sliced tender beef with sauteed rootlike connected the side, gracefully seasoned, savory goodness with a hint of sweet, wide tasty.
Teppanyaki Beef Chunk - IDR 55k
Okay, here's wherever things got antithetic compared to my past visit: THEY NOW INSTALL charcoal grill connected the array for communal grill, wherever connected their aboriginal days they utilized the idiosyncratic grill which was ace inconvenient owed to the magnitude of fume it produced and close disconnected the dinner, the odor of grill fume was each implicit me, bully occupation connected that!
More to that, much caller menus, similar this ample sukiyaki cookware to share. I emotion the saccharine tasty soup! The broth was truly meaty, savory with the close magnitude of sweetness infused! The beef was fatty but I recovered it to beryllium the rightest for this benignant of serving (due to the melting abdominous giving much flavor), and you volition besides find assorted veges too.
Some cuts and slices that I had for yakiniku that night: USDA Short Ribs (IDR 35k), Angus Tenderloin (IDR 80k), Basil Chicken. I urge that thee Angus Tenderloin is sliced earlier cooked due to the fact that if you navigator it successful full, it volition instrumentality much clip to navigator and it volition firmer successful texture! As for the cautiously sliced abbreviated ribs, nary problemo!
The chicken, if you navigator it close (and FYI bash navigator chickenhearted longer due to the fact that you can't person it half-cooked), it tin beryllium decently tender, truthful erstwhile it comes to yakiniku, my reply volition and ever beryllium depending connected however you navigator it, but I deliberation the basal proteins are caller enough!
The terms tag for the proteins and dishes are affordable, and I deliberation Tanpopo is the benignant of spot that you spell to get your Japanese nutrient craving fulfilled, on with the affordable terms tag and affable vibe, but bash enactment that you spell present not to get the champion meat/the astir premium meat, what you wage is what you get.
