Brand new Yakiniku, not even in Google yet. The brother of famous Kaiseiki Chef Yamagishi, just around the corner from the main shop.
The beef is Ōmi Beef (近江牛) from Shiga, one of the oldest, if not the oldest beef brand in Japan
The course menu is interspersed by various salads and vegetables courses which are prepared by one of the Souschefs from Yamagishi but changed to fit the Yakiniku theme, so for example and added tripe from the second stomach of the cow.
The cooker is gas fired as in the old town of Kyoto there is a regulation of having charcoal grills in the dinning room, but a brand where the flame is not directly hitting the beef.
The beef is marinated with a special sauce which includes banana, apples and the dashi from Yamagishi. And of course there is the famous Uni Maki, this time enhanced by a lawyer of filet underneath the Uni.
Don’t over eat and safe some space for the curry rice, just the right spiciness and very, very tasty,

It is early days but this place shows true potential. The wine list is a little limited and quite pricey but I hope this will get solved soon.

Great fun, delicious food.
