Nishiki is an old style yakiniku shop located near Niwase station on the old route 2 (now route 162). I wanted to visit this place for a long time since it’s in the same family as Taiko, my favorite shop in Soja.
Ishigaki Island is the last frontier of Japan, a remote outpost closer to Taiwan than the main land. It is also famous for it’s beef and I had a chance to try it at Takesan Tei.
My quest for great yakiniku has recently taken me just outside of Okayama City to Myondon yakiniku. The restaurant was recommended to my wife and we finally made it to Setocho which is more than an hour drive from where I live in Kurashiki.
Who the hell goes to a piggish dinner at 4h30 PM? Apparently, there is a shit load of people who aren’t phased by the early hours in this deep suburb of Osaka.
When I left Moriyama after lunch for a long bike ride by the shore of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture, my goal was to get to Nagahama city early enough to secure a table at Marusa, a popular yakiniku restaurant. All I can say, the reward was worth the super windy 70 km bike ride.
The area around Niimi in Okayama Prefecture is famous for Chiya gyu, a type of Japanese beef known for its marbled meat which is very similar to Kobe beef.
Taiko is a heart stopper, one of these restaurant where you wonder if you will wake up alive the next day. Well, I did and let me tell you about my favourite yakiniku joint located in Soja city, just outside of Kurashiki.
