Beef consumption in Japan is relatively new. Actually only after the Meiji restoration in 1868 eating wagyu (which literally means “Japanese cow” ) has become more common. Nowadays Japanese have the best beef in the world and plenty of ways to prepare it. One of my favorites is teppanyaki which was invented in 1945 by Misono restaurant chain in Kobe.
In the images – my dinner at Osaka’s Misono last August… A grilling show always fun to watch, smell and eat!
