Yakiniku Champion Ebisu Honten
Time Out says
This self-styled ‘champion’ of grill-it-yourself meat restaurant stands out even in Ebisu, a neighbourhood known for its unparalleled selection of yakiniku joints. All the beef served is of the highest A5 grade, and in addition to listing familiar fillets, ribs and sirloin, the menu offers a veritable lesson in steer anatomy through its comprehensive list of rare cuts – how about some abomasum or top blade muscle?
When visiting for the first time, your best bet is to order one of the set dinners (from ¥5,600), which include appetisers and dessert to go with a selection of the day’s best meat. Reservations essential.
