I believe Japanese beef is the highest quality on earth. When I say high quality beef, it’s marbled beef which is like a masterpiece of art or greater than that. You can enjoy it even by visual itself not only its taste. Among such beautiful beefs are available in Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurants in Japan and they are fiercely competing each other especially in Tokyo area.
“Yakiniku Sakamoto” is one of my best Yakiniku restaurant located near Sangenjyaya Sta. of Tokyu-denentoshi-line. It serves awesome high rate beefs, and my favorite menu is Jyou atsugiri tansio (High rank thick slices of beef tongue with salt).
See this beautiful pieces of marbled beef tongue. It’s so high brand, fresh, smooth and crazy tender! Once you experience the taste you won’t be able to eat tender sirloin beef because it’s not “tender” for you anymore. Only this beef tongue is the real tender beef!
You can eat them even as raw meat since it’s too fresh, we call it “niku sashi” (Sashimi of meat) if we eat meat as it’s raw. I recommend you to grill them with medium rare grilling 30-45 sec for both front and back. Staffs at the restaurant might stop you saying like “Don’t grill for such a long time! super rare is good!” but just ignore it. Believe me medium rare is the best.
They are thiner slices of tongue which is more typical beef of tongue style. How do you see this beautiful flower of meat? Don’t feed water! You just devour it!
Anyway I love beef tongue and highly recommend you to try this Yakiniku restaurant. It never betray you and you’ll be falling in love with her.
