Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the finest Omi beef and Kyoto vegetables at Yakiniku Dining Kinoe
Yakiniku Dining Kinoe is located a 5-minute walk away from the Kyoto City Hall. It is a popular yakiniku restaurant that offers Shiga Prefecture’s famous Omi beef at reasonable prices. They use fresh meat, so at Kinoe you also get to eat raw beef in Omi beef sushi, sashimi, and yukhoe, which are also the dishes this restaurant is the most famous for. For those from overseas that are not very used to eating raw meat, it may be a challenge, but I would like you to at least try raw beef here. The restaurant has a Japanese permit to serve raw meat. They don’t only serve Omi beef, but also Kobe beef, the beef most popular among foreign guests. At this restaurant, you can have the luxurious experience of comparing Omi and Kobe beef. They also serve some rarer cuts that you don’t usually see at yakiniku restaurants and have really many options on the menu, so be sure to go to Kinoe hungry!

This dish collects the best of the best on one plate. You have some of the best cuts of the cow on the plate, like sirloin, rump, flat iron, aitchbone, among others, and altogether you get to taste six different cuts of wagyu beef, all of them full of the delicious umami only found in Japanese beef.

Today’s Omi beef grilled in sukiyaki-style / ¥2,000
This thin slice of beef is steeped in sukiyaki sauce, and then quickly grilled. And like in sukiyaki, you get to dip the beef in the raw egg. Remember to beat the egg first! This is a great chance to try two Japanese classics at the same time, sukiyaki and yakiniku.

How to Order

how to order - Kinoe

At Yakiniku Dining Kinoe the normal way of eating their yakiniku is to dip the meat, which is served to you already steeped in tare sauce, in their specially made vinegar. As many of their foreign customers seem to not like vinegar, they have prepared especially for you these five condiments you can see in the picture. From the left, soy sauce used for sashimi, sweet tare, miso tare, ponzu, and fried garlic. Enjoy Omi beef whatever way you want!

If after grilling a lot of meat, the grill’s mesh gets dirty, you can request for it to be changed.
