Amazing lunch for great price

Okahan Honten a fancy restaurant most known for their high quality teppanyaki, grilled meat and vegetables. Expect to pay ¥20,000 per person for dinner.

However, their lunch is unbelievably reasonable.

The restaurant is conveniently located at a seven-minute walk from Ginza and Shinbashi stations. It is opposite Shiseido’s headquarters.

There is a big menu placed outside the building.

I take the elevator up to the eighth floor. I get out fearing there is going to be a huge waiting line, but am happily surprised that that is not the case.

I enter the restaurant and am taken right to my seat by the counter.
Further in the restaurant, there is the grill counter and a few tables.

Matsuzaka beef grilled right in front of my eyes!

I decided to order thin Wagyu slices.

I am right away served with hot green tea, a wet towel, followed by a bowl of salad.

Other than fresh vegetables, there are croutons in the salad, covered in a creamy dressing.
The vegetables are nice and crunchy.

The chef brings me a plate of beef, pasta, and bean sprouts and asks me if it looks okay.
It’s so fancy!

The chef grills it all on the hotplate in front of me. Starting from pasta, then to bean sprouts and finally to the beef.

I’m sitting here amazed, just

First, I try the meat, after dipping it in the sesame sauce.
Wow!!! It melts in my mouth.
The bean sprouts definitely taste much better than usual ones!
The pasta is lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. Very tasty!

The rice served in the charming bowl is soft and tasty. The miso soup in the small container has a very delicate and sophisticated flavor.

On the side is beef stew with chunks of roughly cut vegetables. Also delicious!

Teatime in a separate room

I feel my body appreciate this out-of-the-ordinary lunch.

As I finish the meal, I am guided to a table for coffee or maccha green tea. Coffee and English tea is quite common, so it was nice to see they included maccha in the menu… even though I ended up choosing coffee.

I believe that lunch is the most important meal of the day.
I think it’s quite all right to enjoy a fancy but reasonable meal once in a while!

It looks like Okahan even won an award for the Matsuzaka beef in 2014. I’m not at all surprised!
