The best Yakiniku I’ve ever had


A cheerful older sister will welcome you brightly. The reason why there are so many female customers in the store is probably because of the cleanliness of the store and the good value of the menu.
I ordered the skirt steak set meal from the lunch menu. After lighting the roaster and waiting for about 10 minutes, it was delivered.
The skirt steak is 100g, and the salad is coleslaw, which is a lot.
Comes with rice, soup, and kimchi. Refills of rice are OK. The kimchi was very delicious. You can eat white rice with just this. The soup is beef-based and not too thick.
Finally, put the skirt steak on the roaster. The sizzling sound of baking will whet your appetite.
When grilled, being careful not to overcook it, and dipping it in a light sauce, the meat becomes tender and the flavor fills your mouth. And if you put white rice in your mouth, it's the best lunch.

After paying, I was given a sorbet to cleanse my palate.

I wanted to go again.


Good value for lunch.
Today's recommended "beef tongue cut off set meal" ¥1280.
"Harami set meal" ¥1580.
Additional ``Special Loin'' ¥550 and ``Special Kalbi'' ¥550.
The heat is a little weak, but it might be good for eating slowly.
The additional special loin and special ribs are incredibly tender and delicious.
There are plenty of seats, so it feels perfect for everyday use.
