Omfg, where do I start? The chilled Chablis was an excellent jumping off point.

Very simple presentations here. Nothing to marvel at visually but the flavors were all spot-on. Some simple Caprese salad.

Followed by octopus salad.

Then came the amazing sirloin of Sanda beef. Sanda beef is actually better than Kobe beef.

Omfg, the fat on this was like eating o-toro, fatty tuna.

Gone.

We ended with a bottle of some amazing Morey-Saint Dennis 2007 Burgundy. This was after Suntory whisky distillery tour. First time I got thoroughly drunk on this trip.

The som who is the brother of the owner only likes California and Burgundy wines. Said that he just had a private wine dinner with the son of the owner of Harlan estates, whose wine club I’m a member of, at the Osaka Ritz. He says that head of Opus One wine comes here once a year for steak. Ranked the best steakhouse in the world for the past five years consecutively.

Again, very deceivingly simple appearance, the photos do not do this place justice. They don’t have 2 Michelin stars for nothing.

By the way. The Japanese did not invent cheesecake, but they have mastered it, no one can do it better in my humble opinion.
