Wagyu Yakiniku Ichiro
Time Out says
You may have heard of high-speed sushi, but have you tried 'bullet train' Japanese BBQ? Well, now you can, kinda, thanks to the new restaurant and Japanese BBQ grill brand Wagyu Yakiniku Ichiro in Jordan. While there were no actual trains involved, the new dining destination does offer unlimited Wagyu set menus (yes, that's right, you can keep eating meat for 120 minutes) with so-called 'Shinkansen bullet trains' bringing food from the kitchen to our table. The contactless service is programmed to deliver our order directly, which basically means it makes a stop at our dining station before we press a door button to access it.
The menu offers a choice of six unlimited sets (A to F) which range from $348 to $1,048, with the latter featuring exclusive Odagyu A4 Wagyu from the Oda Chikusan ranch on the remote southwestern tip of Japan. This award-winning meat benefits from rich marbling and gave us some of the best, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth yakiniku moments we've ever had. One of the highlights in set F is Today's Special which includes the special cut of the day and comes in a smokin' treasure chest. Set menus also include US and Australian Wagyu, with grill selections including premium cuts and beef tongue, alongside selected fresh seafood, beef sashimi, sushi, and much more.
But the free-flow doesn't end there. We opted for all-you-can-eat and drink (range from $48 up to $78) which gives us unlimited salad, dessert and drink at the bar, so you can graze on a variety of salad, as well as over 40 desserts (including some really great Japanese ice creams and ice bars), Japanese rice waters, and fresh fruit juices. Other drinks, including wine, sake, beer, highballs, cocktails, and mocktails, are available on the a la carte menu at additional prices.
Dinner at Wagyu Yakiniku Ichiro is guaranteed to be a fun experience. If not for the novelty of 'speedy' food, but the variety of choice so your palate doesn't get bored too quickly. In our experience, the atmosphere was buzzing with hungry punters, all vibing on the fast-paced concept and also on the incredibly modern Japanese hospitality.
