On the way to Jojoen previously, I noticed meat. It was a teppanyaki place and I wanted to come back to try it. So we did.

Fortunately, we asked what was good. They recommended this sort of seafood pancake that had some roe. It was tasty!

Some veggies, to offset all my meat intake.

And the meat! It was good. I liked it and would eat here again if I stopped by Skytree.

The rice was good because of its chewy texture; I don’t think people know how to make rice like this in the states.

Definitely want to come back here, when I feel like splurging.

The star of the show! Wagyu beef in some sort of lightly sweet sauce. I think this dish alone was ~¥5000 or so. I’m salivating just posting this; next time I’m here I think I’ll eat four of these by myself.

I struggled with balancing under- vs. over-cooking the meat. It’s pretty thin. Fortunately, it’s good either way.

Someday I’d like to be able to slice a lemon this thin.

A sweet ending; green tea ice cream.
