    There are many delicious places that serve grilled meat dishes in Japan, so they all have their own charm. However, meat has many cuts, different methods to cook them and various ways of eating it.

    Even Japanese people don`t really know what exactly each of them is, the best way of eating it, ending up ordering the same thing all the time.

    Thanks to many years of experience in this field, we can carefully select the most excellent Japanese beef among the breeding cows.
    The next step is cutting the meat; Our skillful chefs use hand-cutting when preparing the dishes and they adjust the thickness to 0.2mm, changing the angle of the knife according to the characteristics of each part before cutting it.
    The sauce is also very important along with the way we grill the meat, followed by the last step: serving it.
