I have been trying to go on a diet lately.
Purposely failing every single day … because what the heck I live in Tokyo and there are temptations everywhere.
The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it… everyone knows Oscar Wilde speaks truth !
God, I love Yakiniku.
Here’s Yakiniku Jumbo Shirokane, one of my favourites these days.
Started off with the yukhoe (ユッケ).
This was well received because unlike at many other places, the sesame oil did not overpower the flavours of the fresh raw beef at all.
Then I had my favourite noharayaki – a signature here at Yakiniku Jumbo. Basically 3 pieces of this thinly sliced sirloin and a bowl of rice is all I need to get a glimpse of heaven. I meant this literally and this means quite a lot for a physically bound human being.
The noharayaki is grilled and then dipped in egg, eaten like sukiyaki but probably better than most sukiyakis 😛
The harami was also of very good quality – good for those who prefer beef with a bite over buttery beef. This contrasted nicely with the noharayaki which pretty much evaporated as soon as I put it in my mouth.
The Tongue was also one of the best I’ve had in Tokyo so far 😀
Also had kalbi, sankaku, etc. etc. My dad ordered some pork knuckle dish which I did not take a photo of because I found it slightly gross.
And the meal ended with a soothing gukbap. I prefer gukbap authentic Korean style but still have a habit of ordering gukbap after all my yakiniku meals. Anyway, I absolutely loved this place and would definitely come back again!
