tcc ROGAMA Steak
tcc ROGAMA Steak specializes in incredible steak cooked in a traditional Japanese stone oven called a 'rogama.' In a rogama, the steak is cooked directly over bamboo charcoal that reaches temperatures of more than 900 degrees. The outside of the steak is thus quickly seared, locking in all the juices. The steak is then moved to the side of the oven, where the temperature is much lower, and the heat evenly penetrates all the way through the steak. Steak prepared in a rogama is very tender and juicy while being evenly cooked throughout.
tcc ROGAMA Sumibiyaki Steak is the only restaurant in Tokyo to get its beef from Maruki Fukunaga Kisaburo Shoten, a famous meat supplier in Omi, Shiga Prefecture that also provides beef to the top-rated steak restaurant in Kyoto. Maruki Fukunaga Kisaburo Shoten's cows are raised in Omi, and the brand is known for its extremely high standard of quality. Despite this, tcc is actually a bit less expensive than other steak restaurants in Ginza, with courses available for around ¥12,000.
