Even though it’s located in expensive Ginza, this Kobe beef speciality restaurant is reasonably priced. The interior features wood that’s been recycled from an old house that once belonged to a village headman, and has a sunken hearth to create an authentic local setting. Order the delicious marbled sirloin steak for its juicy flavour, with slithers of fat that melt away as you take a bite. The beef is tasty enough on its own, but you can add a dash of Japanese aioli sauce or soy sauce paste for a twist – they won’t overwhelm the meat’s flavour.
