Kobe beef has now become a globally renowned brand of beef, attracting an endless stream of visitors from around the globe to Kobe in search of its exquisite flavor and texture.

Unknown to most, however, is that an essential point when it comes to enjoying delicious Kobe beef is how it is prepared on the “Teppan (iron griddle)”.

“Iwasaki” is the restaurant of Chef Makoto Iwasaki, who after being the top chef for over 10 years at the famous Kobe beef teppanyaki restaurants “Bifuteki Kawamura” and “Kobe Beef Steak Ishida,” opened his own business.
The top-grade A5 Kobe beef and A5 Wagyu beef which Chef Iwasaki serves is undoubtedly the cream of the crop and its quality has been strictly appraised personally by his experienced and discerning eyes.

In recent years most Wagyu beef vendors emphasizes the marbling (fat distribution) and its subsequent visual appeal. But Iwasaki you can savor the perfect balance of fat and meat which will help you understand what true Kobe Beef is supposed to be.
The secret lies in the cooking techniques. All the flavors of the meat are extracted by Chef Iwasaki, who has honed his skills over 10 years as a chef and has an in-depth understanding of the art of teppanyaki.
