Story & Recommendation
Exceptionally delicious wagyu in the sightseeing mecca of Kyoto, Arashiyama
Steak Otsuka in Arashiyama is a peculiar restaurant. It’s located in a house that looks really normal, not like a restaurant at all. And it’s also surrounded by other such houses. The restaurant is located in a quiet residential area, but there’s still always a line in front of it. And it’s only open for lunch! But that’s not all: their steaks are, to say it simply, mouth-wateringly delicious. You also get rice and a salad with the steaks. You can order a 100g or 150g steak, but as the Japanese beef they use is quite fatty, you’ll feel surprisingly full after eating it. Note that short plate, flap, flat iron, and chuck flap steaks are available in both 100g and 150g portions, but 150g is the only choice for sirloin steaks. And for the quality of the beef you get, their prices are pretty reasonable.
