Japan day 12: Tokyo Gyukatsu Motomura

We are back in Tokyo again. Tokyo is really a metropolis compared to Kyoto. Broad roads, tall buildings, big and hip shops..

But Tokyo also has the smallest restaurants like Beef Kontatsu “Gyugatsu Motomura”. I think I found this restaurant on Google maps with 4+ stars. The place has one stroke of walking area, with the kitchen across of the eating counter. There are 9 seats I believe.

When we arrived there was a short line, about 40 minutes waiting. But it was really worth it; soft beef in a thin crispy dough layer. You could dip it in soy sauce and wasabi, which reminds me of sashimi. And there was a horse radish sauce, which was my favorite. We ate very fast, because people are waiting outside and it was so quiet. Everyone was just enjoying the food.

The price for all of this? 1200 yen, which is about 9 euro. So cheap for such high quality meat. Lazy Bear and I agree, this was more delicious than Kobe beef. 😬

When we left, the line was twice as long. But it’s worth it!

That’s it for today. Let’s end it with a smore ice cream from Dominique Ansel Bakery.
