Sukiyaki in Osaka

Any recommendations for where I can get some really good sukiyaki in Osaka? Would ideally like to keep price below 15k per person, 10k would be better ;-) Hopefully for this price you get pretty good wagyu?

  1. I haven't been there myself, but Kitamura, in business since 1881, seems to be the old standby:

      The Suehiro Honten is pretty good too.

        Kitamura looks good, it's quite close to my hotel too.

        I've had teppanyaki before, but neither shabu-shabu or sukiyaki. I think sukiyaki sounds nicer, what are peoples' opinions on this?

          Shabu-shabu and Sukiyaki are nothing like teppanyaki, not sure if you were comparing all three, maybe I misunderstood. Shabu-shabu has a much cleaner, simpler flavor than sukiyaki. Sukiyaki has the salty-sweet thing happening. Both are tasty, it just depends on what you're looking for. Personally, sukiyaki, about once a year at a home party is enough for me.

            Yes sorry I wasn't very clear. Basically I love beef, especially Japanese beef. I've had it Teppanyaki style before, so I was thinking this time I should go for something different. What do you think is the best way of showing off the meat?
