Yakiniku And Wine Dining Experience At YARUKI

Yakiniku literally means "grilled meat". At YARUKI you are served raw ingredients such as bite-size slices of meat and vegetables that you grill yourself on a grill at your table. Once grilled, you dip your ingredients in a special sauce before eating them. If you haven't tried yakiniku yet, you'll surely find it to be an extremely fun and relaxing dining experience!

You can order different cuts of premium wagyu beef as well as salad, wakame soup, rice, ice cream and much more! A total of 15 items are on the all-you-can-eat menu.

À La Carte Menu

There are many noteworthy items that are not part of the course mentioned above. Here are a few items you should most definitely try if you order à la carte.

The Black Wagyu Karubi is a dish of boneless ribs made from Japanese Black beef of the finest quality. This dish is served raw and comes with a special tare sauce (soy-based sauce) which goes perfectly well with the exquisite meat. For the quality of meat you get, this is of great value for the price. A must-try item.

Kobe Beef Sirloin [¥12,000]

If you're seeking to try Japan's legendary Kobe Beef, YARUKI's got that covered too. The tenderness, oiliness and deep taste is something incomparable.

Uni (Sea Urchin) With Black Wagyu [¥1,950]

This dish is YARUKI's signature delicacy. It's a combination of delicious, fresh sea urchin and premium quality wagyu sashimi. The tender, rich meat and the uni's salty ocean taste with a custard-like texture make a surprisingly sublime combination.

Shrimp, Avocado, Soft-Boiled Egg Hiyashimen (Cold Noodles) [¥690]

This very popular dish is an original creation of YARUKI. Although hiyashimen (cold noodles) is a common side dish to have with yakiniku, YARUKI's dish is outstanding in the combination of toppings: avocado, shrimps and a soft-boiled egg to which is added a slightly spicy sauce, makes the perfect dish of hiyashimen.
