Ushibenkei

Ushibenkei Review

High-quality marbleized beef is taken quite seriously in Japan—cuts are ranked based on the ratio, distribution, and sweetness of the fat in relation to the meat. And at Ushibenkei, you can sample some of the highest rank at reasonable prices in a charmingly rustic atmosphere. For the full experience select a gyu-nabe ("beef pot") course, and your server will move a shichirin (a portable coal-burning stove), to your table and prepare a range of cow tongue, beef, tofu, and vegetables in front of your eyes. The meat is fresh enough to be safely eaten raw, so don't be surprised if you are given paper-thin cuts of beef that are only lightly seared. There are à la carte options, too.
