Chanced upon this little place near where we stay.

Food is good, ambience is nice and they have English menu.

A typical lunch set with aged kobe is only 1980 yen. Cooked to perfection. Worth a visit definitely.

We ended up in steakhouse Pound by coincidence rather than having planned it, as our hotel restuarent had failed us in our pursuit of wagyu beef.

At first glance Pound resembled many of the other small and cosy restaurants in the area -well except for the large window display of beautifully marbled meat. Which naturally .... with our intentions

The place was small but felt in no way unpleasantly compact. While we only experienced the lower floor consisting of 2 table sets for 4, and a bar like setup i suspect that the 1st. floor also had seatings.

The kitchen or rather the grill was placed in line of sight of all seats so guest could easily enjoy the sight of the course getting prepped.

The waiter albeit not being the most eloquent english speaker guided us nicely through the ordering process with the aid of english menus, instruction notes and even a nice handout on where the different parts originated from on the cattle.

We had the recommended wagyu ribye 288 gr, along with a 668 gr dry aged ribye roll, which translated to a decadent but marvelous meatfest for the duration of the next hour.

We totalled at 31.000 yen , which i guess is somewhat steep compared to street food. However the quality of the meat served made up for the expenses

5/5 would come again
