Eating beef in Kobe
Sorry if this has been answered already, but I can't find it if it has!
I will be in Kobe for the day in a few weeks and really wanted to go somewhere very good to try out the beef, but I am having difficulty in finding recommendations. Ideally I would like to be able to try it raw as well as cooked, but that's not essential.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
well - I went to A-1 in the end. Found it luckily as my map had it on the wrong side of the road. I don't know how this places stacks up with other teppanyaki restaurants but WOW it was fantastic!
I like to think of myself as a bit of a meat snob, but this was easily the best steak I've ever eaten. I wasn't expecting it to be nearly that good (steaks are effectively un-aged as far as I know), and it was easily worth Y8000.
The only thing was that I had the bigger portion size, 240g instead of 170. But this stuff is so rich, next time I think I will go smaller. I didn't eat for 24 hours afterwards...
Dave has already had his Beef in Kobe but for information, there is a place called Onishi that serves Kobe Beef, teppan yaki style. Recently moved to a new location, but its previous restaurant had autographs of many famous people, including baseball players and singers.
