Back to Tokyo: Hakushu Teppanyaki

I left Osaka and made my way back to Tokyo. For the first part of our trip we stayed in Shinjuku, now I was staying in Shibuya. After checking in to the hotel, I walked around the corner and went to a teppanyaki restaurant called Hakushu Teppanyaki for dinner.

Hakushu Teppanyaki

Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses a large solid griddle to cook food. Teppan means “iron plate” and yaki means “grilled” or “broiled”.

When I entered the restaurant, I was asked if I had a reservation. I did not, but they still gave me a seat at the counter overlooking the large griddle.

The menu offered Kobe beef in all kinds of cuts and sizes. I didn’t go too crazy and ordered one of the smaller selections.

The gave a couple small bowls of dipping sauce and another small bowl with some salt and pepper.

The cute elderly lady behind the counter seemed to be running the show. She cooked the vegetables first followed by my steak, all with a subtle smile on her face.

She placed the pieces of beef on a slice of white bread so it could soak of all the juices and goodness.

The beef was very tender and just melted in my mouth. Kobe beef is amazing stuff! It went great with their special dipping sauce too.

I had my beef and grilled onions, eggplant, and squash. She also started cooking a small batch of bean sprouts for my meal.

Everything was so simply prepared, but so delicious.

After finishing everything, she took the piece of white bread that’s been soaking up the juices, added some butter, and grilled it until it was golden brown.

The toasted buttery goodness is eaten at the very end and concludes the meal.

It was a long day and I went back to the hotel for the night. I only had 3 more days left in Japan!
