Kobe!

It was around 7:30 P.M. and a group of my classmates as well as myself were waiting patiently for our professor to meet us in the lobby of our Osaka hotel. We were about to make a 65-80 dollar investment on one of Japan’s most famous meals, Kobe Beef. Actually to call Kobe a meal is an insult; it was a delicacy of flavors that danced around enticing the pallet. Walking into the diner I didn’t think much of the place, it was small and shared resemblance to the greasy spoon diners back home. As we sat down at the bar like counter there were only two options placed in front of us, a small set for 6500 yen or a medium set for 8000 yen. Anybody who didn’t know what they were into would’ve left that diner faster than they entered. We finally finished ordering our sets and that’s when the fun began. The chefs at this place must have studied a long time because every action performed was synchronized. The steak was placed methodically on the skillet which was then garnished with onions and steak fries and the wine turned up the heat turning the dish into a pillar of flame. Skillets were removed from the heat source still aflame and put out with a few light flips from the chef. All of our steaks were placed in front of us still sizzling with an aroma indescribable by words. All you needed was a chopstick to cut the steak it was a tender juicy masterpiece. Kobe Beef is a must experience for anyone in Japan no excuses, if you come here you must get some.

Kobe!
