YABAI Izakaya's concept is Neo Nippon Gastropub with Japanese food such as Yakitori, Kushiyaki, and Japanese Tapas (no pork, no lard). As for drinks, they specialize in Infused Shochu. There are also sake and cocktails to make your dining experience more complete.

For those who are interested in trying out Craft Infused Shochu, you can order Kawaii / Yuzu with a fairly strong but very refreshing thanks to the touch of yuzu orange. If you don't want the strong taste, you can choose Senpai / Tomato with a lighter texture. For the price, Craft Infused Shochu starts from Rp 68,000 per glass.

As we mentioned above, YABAI offers the most delicious yakitori in Jakarta, and is perfect for pairing with the shochu of your choice. Japanese skewer recommendation that you must try here is Kawa. This crispy textured chicken skin skewer is served with miso paste and lemon slices that give a touch of sour and refreshing taste. Yakitori prices at this gastropub range between Rp. 15,000 to Rp. 27,000.

For sharing, you should try Buttered Corn (Rp. 48,000) which is a combination of grilled corn, oyster butter emulsion, and parmesan cheese. As for the sweet ending, you have to try Matcha Tiramisu (Rp 50,000) with a soft texture and an appropriate taste. So, it is not wrong if YABAI is the perfect destination for Jakartans who want to enjoy the best Shochu while eating the most delicious yakitori in town.
