Hagiwara-san beefs it up at Yamazato
Yamazato, The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s signature Japanese restaurant, is proud to showcase fine foods shipped fresh from the Kansai region of Japan.
Yamazato Master Chef Shigeru Hagiwara and his Yamazato culinary team are creating exciting dishes using, for example, traditional Oumi beef. Kansai is a large and influential part of Japan’s Honshu island with its heavily populated urban areas of Kobe, Kyoto and Osaka.
A ban on eating beef in Japan, which lasted for about 1,000 years, was lifted in 1868 as part of the Meiji restoration. Today, breeders in Japan rear some of the world’s finest and most sought-after beef.
Chef Shigeru Hagiwara’s new dishes at Yamazato include simmered Oumi beef in a thick soy sauce; grilled Oumi beef tenderloin and sirloin served with vegetables; and a very special Teppanyaki set menu featuring Oumi beef.
Mie prefecture in Kansai is famous for its Ise lobsters. Yamazato offers grilled Mie Ise lobster with tomato salsa sauce as well as tempura of Matsuba crab and grilled Mie abalone steak with seaweed sauce.
