Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
Shishikin is located along the takasegawa-river. The appearance and inside of the restaurant is a traditional Japanese style. I can enjoy special cuisine in a calm space. Of course, beef taste is a high quality. In addition to that, its appearance is also significant point of this restaurant.
I enjoyed a difference of each part taste. My most favorite is Brisket which is good and chewy. And white rice goes well with beef, I think, it is must item with beef ! Fresh vegetables helps to refresh beef oil.

Sparkling water
3Let's Try !
Sparkling water / 650 yen
We highly recommend to drink sparkling water after eating beef. It helps to digest beef oil. There are 2 kinds of sparking water. The one in this photo is made in Spain and the other one is made in France which is good for a hard water lover. Please refresh with it after enjoying your meal.
