No visit to Japan would be complete without sampling one of the nation’s most popular styles of cooking, ‘yakiniku’, which literally translates to ‘grilled meat’. Perhaps the main attraction of yakiniku is that you get to cook the ingredients yourself on what is best described as mini barbeque grills which are built into the tables. Not only can you see that your ingredients are fresh before you cook them, but the whole process can be a lot of fun. Vegetables are typically served with most meat dishes, although they can be ordered separately; they too are cooked on the grill.
Ishigaki beef tongue (¥2000). A plate of fresh sliced tongue – typically over a dozen slices.
Nabe (880 Yen). Maru’s popular speciality nabe (Japanese hotpot) includes various vegetables, tofu, along with some offal.
