My sister was already back home in the Philippines by now and it was my last couple nights in Kyoto. After recuperating a bit from our Koyasan trip, I went back out to find a place to have dinner.
I walked down a couple alleyways lined with restaurants.
I finally decided that I could go for some wine and a steak. Well, Steak & Wine was the perfect place!
The restaurant was narrow and tiny with a few tables along the wall and a long counter leading towards the back.
I grabbed a seat at the counter and went over the menu. The restaurant specializes in Kobe beef and Japanese wagyu ad offers various cuts of steak.
They’re also known for their very generous pours of wine. Cheers!
Like many eateries in Japan, this place served otooshi which is a small appetizer given to you automatically for a small table charge or fee of a few dollars. Many tourists are known to complain about these, but I didn’t mind the melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu Beef Prosciutto.
It was tempting to get the popular Kobe beef, but I didn’t feel like spending too much. I went with a nice piece of Japanese Wagyu Omigyu which was still pretty tender and very tasty for a more reasonable price.
Omi beef is known throughout Japan for its unique, marbled appearance and its incredible taste.
After dinner I just wanted to walk around the city for a bit before calling it a night. I was looking forward to Arashiyama the following day.
