We got off at a calm station that is named “Mikawashima”. Mikawashima station is within a walking distance from Nippori, but contrary to busy Nippori, Mikawashima is quiet. We had dinner at Yakiniku Yamadaya (焼肉 山田屋) , a little far from the station.
They are good at Yakiniku, especially innards of pigs & cows.
At first my friend and I toasted with drink. My drink was ginger highball. It had a large slice of ginger. It’s hard to decide whether I eat this ginger or not. I didn’t eat after all.
Steamed beef tail. It’s very popular among people. It’s a mass of collagen !
Pig’s liver sashimi. We might not be able to eat it before long in Japan. Already serving cow’s liver sashimi is restricted by law and some of people that serve cow’s liver as raw in restaurants were arrested. Not only the owners but also part-time workers. Incredible…
So owners are very nervous. Also Yamadaya didn’t show it on the menu, though pig’s liver sashimi is not restricted yet. I couldn’t know its price. They called it “Pig’s sashimi” and they never used the word, “liver”. It’s so tasty all the same.
Steamed fatty pork tongue. I ate much tongues that day. Pig’s tongue was good, too. As you see, so fatty.
After that another friend arrived at the shop. So, I ordered a coke and drunk a toast again. I think coke is the best friend of yakiniku.
We ordered a second helping of steamed beef tail, but it was already sold out. Alas, I wanted to eat more.
Uterus sashimi. Its texture was funny. And it was fresh and tasty. Lots of green onions and ponzu went with the uterus very well.
After that we started to eat yakiniku. Thickly sliced beef tongue.
Good smell ….. Though it was thick, it was easy to chew ! And so fatty !
This aged beef was not on the menu. The name was hanged on the wall as special. So I forgot its price. The staff said it is aged for 60 days, so I think it must be expensive. Though it is not good expression, aged-beef is just before rotten. As you see, those didn’t have good color partly. But the more it was chewed, the tastier it became.
Deluxe sirloin. The menu not says it is aged-beef, but it looked like long aged-beef and tasted great.
Beef large intestine. That’s mass of fat ! We are thirties and forties, so it’s hard to eat the mass of fats up 🙁 When we were in teenagers, we must have eaten it greedily…
Kkakdugi. Much fatty meats made the inside of our mouth sticky, so we ordered a kimchi.
Simmered giblets with salt. It don’t have miso, so, It tasted light.
And, Yamadaya’s special assorted beef innards. It’s valuable dish ! Some parts of cows’ innards were on the dish randomly.
Beef spleen sashimi. Beef spleen and reticulum were mixed together. We had to eat soon because the water of the reticulum got out of it sooner.
Gomguk soup. It’s a beef tail soup having much vegetables. We were refreshed 🙂
We enjoyed a lot. They serve such a good meats at inexpensive price because of such a location. Though I want to visit there again, I don’t have good means of transportation.
