A cozy yakiniku restaurant lies on a quiet street in Osaka, and while it looks just about average on the outside, the variety and quality of beef served at Tsurugyu are second to none. Guests can enjoy grilling the meat right there at their table, with the assistance of the staff who make sure that the meat isn’t ruined by an amateur’s touch.
Offering both a la carte and set-course meals that allow you to taste a variety of beef and parts, every penny spent here is worth it. Some of the beef served includes the Kuri steak, finely-marbled and known for its ideal sweetness and tenderness, and the Tajima beef that's from a pure breed of cattle raised in the prefecture.
With the course meals, every cut of meat comes with a different set of dips, and no two dips are ever the same. They use a mixture of simple and elaborate ones, matching to the specific meats. The best part of it all? The course meals come with a signature oxtail soup that goes extremely well with the tender, succulent, and juicy beef.
The service is impeccable as well, as the waiters constantly check on the tables to see if the meat is being overcooked, then assist their guests in flipping and arranging the meat properly. At the end of your dining experience at Tsurugyu, you'll be a veritable black-belt in the art of yakiniku grilling.
