Takesan Tei: Ishigaki yakiniku

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.

Takesan Tei is located a couple blocks away from the tourist street.

The restaurant was really busy and they offered a great menu of Ishigaki beef.

A couple second before the great food started to arrive.

Veggies locally grown.

The meat was top grade and the service at Takesan Tei beyond reproach.   I was happy my wife found this place.

I know this place is not exactly the easiest place to get to, but such a nice restaurant makes the whole trip worth it.

The special cuts of the day are posted on the wall, I suggest you get there early if you want to eat the best parts.

If you visit Ishigaki, reserve early and take a small walk to Takesan Tei. One more thing, their passion fruit chu-hi was really good!
