The popular "Black wagyu beef suki claypot rice" is a rice dish cooked with burdock and dashi, and topped with black wagyu sukiyaki and rich egg.
The “Chef’s Choice” course uses seasonal ingredients according to the 24 Solar Terms. The “Kasugyu” is a dish not to be missed, it is Japanese black wagyu that is marinated in sake lees for 7 days and 18 days. You can also choose your preferred claypot rice and tea in this course.
