Yakiniku Hormone Arai-ya Shibuya Google Average Rating



The wagyu is FANTASTIC. The beef tongue is awesome! Literally one of the best I had so far in my life. 宮崎牛 is a real deal. Worth every penny.
However this special one needs reservation in advanced!


All food is delicious but time can stay is short.

Rice for each person
Four people ate this!
I was so happy to eat yakiniku with rice in one hand ❤️

In particular, the specially selected thick-sliced ​​tongue with salt is plump and plump.
It was unbelievably delicious!
The 3 kinds of thin special tongues are also the best~

The upper skirt steak has a lot of flavor and is rolled with rice.
It's bliss ♡
I finally replaced it.

The top loin has quite a lot of marbling.
I think a regular loin that isn't top quality would be enough.
Eat with vinegar and green chili sauce
I love the crunchy texture of menbu✨
You should definitely ask.

As hard as a high school boy returning from club activities
I ate it, and this is the correct form of Yakiniku ❤️
It was really delicious!
