Wakkoku Review

At this elegant dining room, the excellent Kobe beef is sliced thin and cooked before you on a teppanyaki grill along with fresh vegetables and served with pepper, mustard, and soy sauce for dipping. Wakkoku uses meat from three-year-old cows that have never been bred, which is said to be the reason for its unbelievable tenderness. Lunch set menus start at ¥2,940 and go up to ¥5,040. The pricier option uses the highest-quality meat, a small but noticeable difference.

    I have just come back from my trip to Japan, and had the opportunity to try the kobe beef in WAKKOKU restaurant near shinKobe station.The beef was very tender as confirmed by other members.But I would hesitate to recommend . I believe it was over-rated, and for 13000 yens (dinner),one can get better value almost anywhere in Japan.
