Located at the corner of InterContinental Hotel, which opens to the Mid Plaza, KADO which means corner or gateway in Japanese, is obviously aptly named. Its interior is reminiscent of vintage Japanese eatery, with wooden panelling, chairs and tables, sleek, square and clean.
Preciously It is a Kyoto concept hospitality that you couldn't find anywhere else here in Jakarta. Unlike others, KADO have always given warm and friendly services, and we're willing to share our favourite dishes to everyone.
KADO was one of the first Japanese restaurants in Jakarta to have a KYOTO Concept ambience, which remains popular among Japanese expatiates, hotel guests and locals. Reflecting a smorgasbord of atmosphere, we create seasonal specialities, authentic Kushiyaki, and novel dishes like the Milu Katsu Hot Plate (Mille-Feuille pork cutlet with layers of soft meat and soft Panko) and stuffed Kamameshi.
Because of its setting in the heart of Jakarta, KADO has its own distinct identity, but we never try to lose sight of where we began.
Menu - Our Specialties
KADO serve a wide range of Japanese cuisine, KADO narrows its specialty to Kushiyaki, or skewered charcoal-grilled meats, and Kamameshi, or rice cooked in a metal pot and topped with a variety of grilled meat.
You can order Kushiyaki with a choice of meat that range from momo or chicken thigh fillet, tebasaki from chicken wings, nankotsu or cartilage, and tamago or egg. One favorite dish is the Milu Katsu Hot Plate (Mille-Feuille pork cutlet with layers of soft meat and soft Panko).
The grilled dishes are basted with sauces and are served sans dressing.
The rice for Kamameshi is specially imported from Japan. It is cooked with carrots, mushrooms and thin crisp tofu called aburage as well as herbs and spices. For Kamameshi topping you can choose from sake (salmon), tori (chicken) and gomoku, a mixture of salmon, scallop, prawn and edamame beans.
While waiting for your Kamameshi, which might take up to 30 minutes to prepare, you can nibble on a variety of starters, including the popular Chawan Mushi or steamed egg with prawn filling and Wakame Salad, a seaweed salad with crisp fish skin.
