So to round off my trip, We were disappointed earlier that in Saga, we couldn’t get beef .. so we decided we should at least have a meal that ends with beef. We were waitlisted for 1 hour ++ because this place was SO FULL!! and I must say, although we were quite hungry and irritated to have to wait so long for the table, the wait was well worth!
we all went for the sukiyaki set. I really do admire the Japanese in their patience and pride in making a type of cuisine so refined and everything is broken down into steps that probably have been well thought out and practiced over the years.
We chose a set that included premium and normal beef.
Normal beef - melts in the mouth supers
Wordy toufu looking thing is handmade gluten
This is a picture of the normal beef. IT MELTS IN THE MOUTH! literally! even uploading this picture makes my mouth water thinking of it … We were so pleasantly surprised, squealed with excitement and gave the server a shock hahaha in the process. The normal beef had such high standards.. the premium beef! we can’t wait to try it!
Look at the marbling in the beefie man!!!!!
All good things must always come to an end .. we slowly devoured all our beef .. and with the remaining eggs, the lady poured it into the pan, and cracked a few more as well .. thus looking like :
At the end of the sukiyaki course, egg is being poured into the pan, cooked in the essence of what was left from the whole cours
Then .. all is not wasted as there are beef essence (we also kept some meat to last us till the end when the rice came! Each precious piece! The lady must have thought we were crazy or something! hahahaha ..
remaining sauce is cooked with egg and poured ontop of rice 🙂
mixed together to become :
A totally enjoyable and unforgettable meal! I must say this was one of the best highlights of the trip! Nonetheless, look forward to return again in future, and re visit some of the places!
