When we enter the place, there are many varieties of menu and style that we can choose from. Even you can order an a-la-carte menu, but since it is our first time. We are going for a full course menu of Kobe beef in Japanese cooking style. I believe Japan has the best way to cook such delicacy without destroying the original taste.

Course With All Part of Kobe Beef

Dish #1

The picture above is our entry course, Grilled Kobe beef and sea bream with onion puree. I never taste such a great taste like this dish. The tenderness of the meat is outstanding. You actually would not be required to chew a lot of time as if the beef melts into your mouth. Sea bream taste is quite remarkable while eating with onion puree.

Dish #2

Here is our second dish, seasonal appetizer. It is all in bite-size and refreshing to mouth; at first, I thought it is some sorbet to ‘reset’ our taste before we enjoy another taste of Kobe beef again.

Dish #3

Domyoji and Kobe Beef in Dashi soup

Our third dish is Domyoji and Kobe-beef in dashi soup. Dashi is a common ingredient that you can found almost everywhere in Japan, especially if you do like miso soup. Part of the soup often puts dashi as the base, and by combining dashi and beef. It brings out the meat taste stronger without spoiling the taste.

Dish #4

Deep fried Kobe Beef and Vegetables wrapped with Tofu skin

I am not a fan of frying such high meat as if it did poorly. The beef would lose the juicy taste, but this dish able to maintain the fascinating part. At the same time the tofu skin giving a crunchy feeling when you bite it.

Dish #5

Seaweed and Bamboo Shoot Stewed by dash soup

This dish a big surprise to me. I was expected the taste would be similar to the third dish since it also contains dash-soup. But in fact, it is quite different, and the bamboo shoot taste is fresh. Plus all these ingredients will bring another taste experience of the Kobe beef.

Dish #6

Cabbage Salad

When they serve this, I was digging where the Kobe beef is. The waiters seem caught on what I am doing. He said this one is to refresh my taste bud before the main course coming. I was enthusiastic about the next dish, but for this dish. It is kind of above average for cabbage salad, not that special.

Dish #7

Hearth baked Kobe Beef steak

The picture above is the main dish that I had been waiting for, hearth-baked Kobe beef steak. It is cooked to preserve the best tenderness and taste. It is no wonder why the price is ridiculously high. As it is way above the best beef that the world can offer. I love the taste, juicy, tenderness, and you must enjoy this without salt and pepper. If you had some extra $ do get the best wine pairing for this dish. Then your experience will be complete.

Dish #8

Dish #9

The dessert to close my outstanding journey. The waiter told us that there are no more Kobe-beef in this dessert and we are all laugh because of that. This place has excellent service, ambiance, as well as taste.
In summary, with this Kobe beef set menu. You will be enjoying every part of the cow (as the waiter will share the story of which part of the Kobe cow that they serve).
