Located at just a 5-minute walk from the Shibuya Station, Queens Steak & Burger serves authentic American steak. It's the kind of quality you'd expect to find at fancy restaurants in Ginza or Roppongi, except that the price is a lot more affordable. You can enjoy dry-aged beef, T-bones and smoked tomahawk steaks among other things.
A rare restaurant serving authentic American steak in Shibuya
Queens Steak & Burger is located at a 5-minute walk from the South Exit of the Shibuya Station. It's in the Sakuragaoka area, just aside from the hustle and bustle of the downtown core. There, you can have some pretty awesome authentic American steak.
Worthy of special mention is their BLT Steak, which is made of meat of the same quality you'd find at a nice Roppongi or Ginza restaurant, except that the price is a lot more reasonable!
Most of their beef is premium grade from the US. This place is definitely worth the go!
You must try the T-bone steak made with American beef!
Prime T-Bone Steak for 3-4 people (about 750g), ¥12,000 (taxes not included)
This is the most popular menu item. The T-bone steak here is made of premium quality dry-aged beef. It is as beautiful as it is tasty! It is cooked very quickly at a high temperature so that the outer part is fragrant and well cooked and the centre part is tender and juicy.
The 750g piece is made to be shared between three or four people, but real meat lovers order this one for two people. It's also possible to order a smaller portion of 500g (¥8,200, taxes not included) if you want more variety.
You can enjoy the sirloin and filet parts when you order the T-bone. The sirloin part is succulent and firm, full of fresh umami. In contrast, the filet part is tender and has a milder red meat taste. The meat is cooked with butter which gives it a nice flavour too and enhances the natural tastes as well.
What the dry ageing does to the meat is that it eliminates the moisture in it, making the rich natural savouriness more pronounced.
Another recommended dish is the smoked tomahawk
Smoked Tomahawk for 2 people (about 600g), ¥8,000 (taxes not included)
This dish was smoked in-house! The generous portion looks so appetizing served with the bone. It is smoked and aged for two weeks, which results in a meat that is remarkably tender!
The meat also has an irresistible mellow smokey scent. It is simply seasoned with salt and pepper but that really is on point, because it leaves the stage for all the delicious natural umami flavours. This is really a must try item as well for the nice smell and the supreme tenderness!
As an accompaniement, try the smoked mashed potatoes!
Smoked Mashed Potatoes, ¥800 (taxes not included)
This is the most popular accompaniment to the steak. It has a creamy texture that is extremely addictive. The reason why it is so good is that about half of it is butter, so you get mashed potatoes with the richest, deepest taste you can imagine.
It's meant to be eaten with the steak but it's so good that you might end up eating it by itself.
Onion rings unlike anything you've ever seen
Onion Rings, ¥680( taxes not included)
This is another accompaniment that you can't go wrong with. These are not your ordinary onion rings! The outside is really crispy and the onions inside are really sweet. The combination of texture and taste is just perfect. They also come with a house-made Aurora sauce.
While you wait for your steak, how about some salads or other side dishes?
Chef's Special Paté, ¥1,200, ¥700 for half size (taxes not included)
At Queens, there are plenty of other foods you can order aside from the steak. Try for instance the Chef's Special Paté. This paté is nice and rich with a rich taste and goes really well with wine while you wait for your steak.
Avocado & Shrimp Cobb Salad, ¥1,400, ¥800 for half size (taxes not included)
If you want something light and healthy, how about this Avocado & Shrimp Cobb Salad? It's packed with fresh vegetables and the spicy cobb salad dressing will stimulate your appetite for what is to come!
Reasonably priced wine to pair with your food
Various wines from ¥600 a glass or from ¥2,800 a bottle (taxes not included)
What better way to enjoy your steak than to pair it with a good wine? Queens has a good selection of affordable wines. The staff will gladly recommend wines based on your preferences.
Burgers with really thick beef patties
Queens Prime Beef Burger With French Fries, ¥1,400 (taxes not included)
Queens specializes not just in steak, but also hamburgers. The picture above is the most popular option. It comes with a nice amount of French fries too!
This prime American beef burger has a patty that has a whopping 180g of meat in it. You can't go wrong with this one if you're a meat lover. The spices are spot on too.
You can have it for lunch for ¥1,200 (single item), or order it as part of a set that comes with French fries and a salad for ¥1,500. (Both prices do not include the taxes).
