Misono is all about the kobe beef.  Located at the top of a building in the Ginza section of Tokyo.  We were ushered back to a semi-circular table where one half was bar stools and the other half was a hot stainless grill.  

Once we sat down they gave us each a plate of cured ham.  Then the grilling began.

Veggies and how they cook
Then he put the pot over them to grill and roast at the same time.

A salad came out with a very light vinegar based dressing.

Voila our veggies are ready to eat.

Here is our kobe beef raw.  See the garlic slices next to it?  I nixed that.

A small dessert to end the night.  Strawberry ice cream, cheese cake and a strawberry.

Nice night.  Very rich meat.  You do not need a lot to hit the wall.

    Was the beef eaten really rare like that picture? How did it taste?I like how evenly marbelized these steaks looked.

        Interesting. Is this the preferred way to have Kobe meat?

        1. Gotham Gal

    It’s probably on your agenda but you should be sure to have an Okonomiyaki meal – preferably when in Kyoto – very typical and yummy. If you’re going to Nara – they are known for their tofu – very delicate. One tip – we got great local guides, mostly students wanting to work on their english from the people-to-people ambassador sites. Also, if you can Hiroshima is really a worthwhile day trip from Kyoto.

    Looks really great. I have become more of a fan of eating rare meat over the past few years and those steaks look delicious. Another reason to visit Japan!
