Yakiniku Jumbo Shirogane(焼肉ジャンボ 白金)

Yukke. Simmered wagyu tongue. Both very good!
Assorted Kimchi. Beef sashimi.
Some pork some beef…can’t remember names… Veggy on the right is “Sanchu”.
The beef on the right is “sabuton”.
Pork feet is cold and hard and tasteless – don’t order it!

All different parts but can’t remember names…

Korean cold noodles. Spicy soup with rice.

Have been to the honten(original shop) in Shinozaki(see tag). The variety and the quality of meat is about the same(i.e.very good), but I must say the portion is much smaller in this Shirogane branch. I was stuffed to my throat by the end in Shinozaki and I paid about 7000yen including drinks, while in Shirogane I wasn’t really that full but the bill came up to 10,000yen per person. Though my visit to the Shinozaki honten was in 2007 and I haven’t been back since then. Shirogane is a much more convenient location and not too far from the station, while the honten is a hell of a walk from the out-of-the-way Shinozaki station. If you care for nice interior, young and lively staff, high percentage of female customers in trendy clothes, then Shirogane is your choice. I, on the otherhand, prefer the honten’s busybody owner who sticks a gun to your head if you cook his top-quality meat too long(3 seconds max!). I don’t think there was a time limit in Shinozaki, but you can only stay for two hours in Shirogane. I took pictures of the whole menu but most of the meat we ordered were not on it and were explained to us by the staff. I was too lazy to take notes but my friend’s choice “U-wa-mi-su-ji” had the most marbled fat and was the most juicy. Sabuton was also my favourite. Just like the honten, the grill wasn’t really that hot so I actually preferred cooking the meat – which was so fresh that it could be eaten raw – for more than 3 seconds(*gasps*). All the side dishes like yukke, soup rice were much nicer in Shirogane branch.

Menu: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

This place is very near to Labyrinthe’s Patisserie Shinohashi which I’ve bought some bread before(entry here).

  3. that’s a lot of meat! The simmered wagyu tongue looks soooo good~~

    3 secs sound way too short for meat…isn’t that still too raw?

  4. But I think this location seems less pressure as you won’t get scold at for cooking the meat for 4 sec, but definitely the other one is more for foodie. Do they have pretty much the same supplies (and same quality) of meat as well? Maybe this trendy one won’t have as much more ‘extreme’ (for the ladies) stuffs like liver and hearts.

    3 secs was too short for me but I guess it depends on how rare you like your meat to be. When I have steak I usually ask for medium not rare.

    Oh we didn’t get “scolded” like, in a rude way. ^^;; I think they have similar supply and quality, only differ in price, environment, location and service. But the service in the honten is by no means rude. We didn’t order any rare stuff like liver or heart because one of my friends can’t eat that. They have a lot of horumon(innard) available in the trendy branch too.
