Salmon Poke Salad
A fresh starter to the lunch that day! Marinated fresh salmon with avocado on daikon bed and nori dressing, it was the right amount of salmon, properly seasoned, altogether light yet kinda prepared your palate for something more.
Left: Salmon Poke Onigiri (IDR 85k)
Right: Tebagyo Original (IDR 75k)
The Salmon Poke Onigiri is PURE LOVE! Fried square shaped onigiri (which by the way was perfectly fried) then topped with fresh salmon with spicy mayo dressing! Each bite was like this explosion of flavor and texture, a simple yet flavorful nibbles, the Tebagyo was chunky, I mean take a look at those fat chicken wings! Meat was tender, the soy seasoning was generous but not overly given.
Whole Galbi (1 KG) – IDR 680k
Now to one of the highlights of Birdman! Just as appetizing as it looks: WHOLE 1 KG GALBI! The Galbi is marinated in this sweet soy marination, served with grilled vegetables, eggyolk and dipping sauce, and seriously the way you serve it is however you fancy. The Galbi was perfectly cooked (asked for Medium) and as you can see, the shining pink center! Meat was tender enough and since it’s a 1 kg serving, you can definitely share this with up to 5-6 people, but if you’re insane enough you can finish this yourself.
Another favorite of mine and another menu that you can share! UNAGI CLAYPOT! Generous beautifully cooked unagi on this bed of Japanese rice that’s been cooked together with dashi stock and Sansho pepper. I think this time the picture does the justice and as you can see, the unagi was so nicely cooked, and the caramel golden color was so beautiful it’s appetizing, they were moist but not wet, the rice was also not overly cooked hence it wasn’t soggy, and the key, aka the dashi stock was also seasoned rightly, it wasn’t overly salty.
