Japan Trip: Dinner at Wakkoqu

As I mentioned in my previous post, the only reason our family stopped at Kobe was because Dad wanted to eat Kobe beef. I’m not even kidding. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him that happy before or ever after. Seriously though, if you tasted this beef, you would be all smiles too.

We arrived for our dinner reservation and were seated at our table around a teppanyaki grill. After a brief look at the menu, we (or rather, my Younger Sister and I) decided on the Chef’s Special course. We start with two entrees before the main event arrives.

This Kobe beef is a thing of beauty! I’m salivating just remembering how amazing it tasted. With this course, the chef prepares and cooks the beef in front of you on the teppanyaki grill.

Different cuts of the sirloin are cooked differently, and the chef tells you how to best savour each bite. For instance, eatng one piece with sansho pepper, one piece with salt, and one piece with fried garlic. Honestly, it’s all just amazingly melt-in-your-mouth tasty. Especially the piece of rendered fat they serve you. Oh so good…

The course also includes vegetables and fried rice, both being cooked in the fat from the Kobe beef. It sounds so bad, but tastes so good! It was then finished off with fruit and sorbet for dessert.

I won’t go into detail about dining here (I ain’t no food blogger, but you can read this review I found that had me booking a table ASAP); however, I will say that it had my whole family smiling and devouring every morsel of Kobe beef. I know my Younger Sister and I were dying from how amazingly delicious this meal was. Seriously, sooooo good! Someone take me back!

    That Kobe beef looks amazingly marbled. Grade A5 or more, no doubt. I bet this was dissolve in you mouth food. The Japanese do it so well.

    I’ve been told there’s even a correct way to add wasabi to sushi. So many protocols, so little time.

      That Kobe beef was mouth-wateringly good! It’s worth a trip to Kobe, so if/when you’re ever in Japan you should swing by. πŸ˜€

      Also, I never knew there was a correct way to add wasabi. I must look that up. The Japanese do seem to have a lot of little rules, but I find that they appreciate their food much more.

    That looks so good ^^ We had the chance to try Kobe beef for the very first time, during our trip to Tokyo. It’s probably one of the best beef that we’ve ever tried (´q‒ α΅• ‒q`).
