Semmon Hiyoko prepares steaks for over 50 years in a very small building which one can only describe as a shed. His menu which consists of a one course meal has not changed together with the entire kitchen equipment.
Once you arrive, you get unceremoniously served a glass of water and a small salad from the only helper in the kitchen. At the same time Mr. Hiyoko starts preparing your steak, which is generously sized at around the 400g.
He grills the vegetables and the steak on the same griddle. Once done, he plates the dish and cuts the steak so you can eat it with chopsticks.
The meat is unbelievable smooth without being too soft and it melts in your mouth. The flavour is strong without any hints of very long age.
All in, he turns you around in less than 45 minutes without you feeling rushed in any form or shape.
What a treat! Go there as long as Mr. Hiyoko still cooks.
