Downtown Wagyu/SteakMar. 11, 2016 UPDATE
Wagyu steak always chosen as best by all


/ はふう 本店
Located near the south of the Imperial Palace. Hafuu offers the top quality beef at the lively atmosphere. Since they originally used to be a butcher for a long time, they can stock up fine beef and provide them reasonably. There are a wide range of beef dishes such as steak, beef cutlet, and more. If you visit at lunch time, all menus are with salad, miso soup, pickles, and coffee. So you must be satisfied. The interior of the restaurant is a mixture of Japanese traditional and modern styles an...mored also staffs give you a good service to make you feel at home. There is a counter table. Try to take it and see how to cook your dish over the counter.
Take out lunch boxes that are more reasonable are also available even if you don’t eat in. There is the kamo river close to the restaurant. Let’s try to take out and have a seat on the bench beside the river to eat.

I have never eaten such a great beef steak! Glittering looks caught my eyes so that I couldn’t wait to eat. Salad that come along with the steak was so fresh and refreshed in my mouth I wanted to eat like a horse!
It is located in the residential area and appearance of it is a bit difficult to find. Please check the map above carefully before visiting.
I highly recommend you to eat Steak Bowl! Sliced beef is a bit boiled and lightly seasoned so that it is great with fresh Japanese leak. I could eat more and more.
Why not try to order sirloin steak if you are a big eater! It is worth having!
Wagyu sirloin steak (Japanese beef)
1Must Eat !
Wagyu sirloin steak (Japanese beef) / ¥4,500
Thick juicy steak is extremely gorgeous and will melt in your mouth shortly.
Fat of the beef is very light so that you won’t feel sick after eating.
It comes along with rice, salad, miso soup and more.
You would eat a lot of rice with only one cut beef.
Dip on salt a bit or mustard in order to get more taste.
Filet steak is also served for ¥4,800
Steak bowl
2Must Eat !
Steak bowl / ¥2,800
So many sliced beef over the rice like a mountain!
The taste of the beef is very strong.
We highly recommend you to eat beef in Japanese-style
Chopped Japanese leak and horse radish are on the top of the bowl.
Enjoy yourself with them and pour soy sauce on it to change the flavor.
Beef cutlet sandwich
3Let's Try !
Beef cutlet sandwich / ¥1,900
The impact of thick beef culet is more outstanding than you expect!
Not only a special sauce and cabbages assist the taste of beef better, but also a bread itself is so fantastic.
Take them out can be great for your dinner at a hotel because you may like to eat again and again even after having them for lunch.
