One of if not the best meal I had in Japan. The staff was super nice and pleasant explaining all of the cuts of meat. They cook it all for you which was nice, I prefer that in higher end places over cooking it yourself, it adds more to the experience overall.

The sake is super cheap imo and strong, try the sparkling sake.

The heart and stomach was chewy but still flavorful.

Towards the end they offered rice with beef and kept on refilling if we wanted which was very nice of them.

Keep in mind this was a $200 experience per person. I think it was fully worth it.


Where do I start here. This is definitely one of the best food experiences in my life. The chef and staff knows their stuff and will surely offer an amazing experience.

Started with the squid sashimi which I was never a fan of but this place changed my mind.

Then came the tartar which made me sure that whats coming is going to be extraordinary.

The menu changing so its not always the same cuts but what we got was just perfect. Starting with three different muscles of beef tongue to skirt steak to cheek to Striploin and much more every single cut was respected and cooked and served in a way that made it even better.

Even the side of salad with a sharp vinaigrette or the rich bone broth are just perfect in any way you think of.

Make sure that you book at the counter the chef is just a humble and amazing guy.

There are a lot of great restaurants out there but when you leave a restaurant with a memory and a lesson you know that the place was extraordinary.


Modern BBQ, kinda South Korean style. A feast of diverse beef textures.

I took him there for his birthday. Apparently they made reservations well in advance. I went there looking forward to it, but I was surprised at how delicious the meat was. And the shop staff grilled it for me and cut it for me...


Translated from Japanese:

``Charcoal Grilled Yakiniku Nakahara'' Location: Ichigaya Budget 25,000 ~ This was my first time ~ I had been to Fuchioka before, but this was my first time at Nakahara, so I went for the most expensive special course. Quality of all meat...
