Review: Mouriya Kobe Beef Dining

Hello true believers, Ash here to faceroll my keyboard until a blog post coalesces

One meal we had in Japan deserves special attention, more so than the rest. The place in question is called Mouriya, and being situated in the heart of Kobe, it was only fitting that they specialised in Kobe beef. Having already dabbled in the stuff in a couple other places and being aware that it is beyond scarce outside of the Nihons, we (mainly me) wanted to experience the absolute best of this delicacy, and in light of it being our last supper in Japan, we decided to go fancy.

Mouriya opened up their first location in 1885, and their longstanding success serves as a testament to the fact that are one of the most famous and well-regarded Kobe Beef restaurants.

  Other than the striking stained glass windows, another pleasant facet at the outset was the personal table service we got from the chef.  When choosing drinks he cheerily informed us that due to ongoing Whisky Festival celebrations, all their scotches were discounted and seeing as how we were already spending a pretty penny, decided to hit up the fancy stuff: Macallan.

サラダ (Salad): Roast Kobe Beef Salad

スープ (Soup): French onion soup

 It soon became apparent that the cuisine was largely French-inspired,  and prepared with top Japanese produce. For hors d’oeuvre, we had some tantalising duck liver pate. Following that, we had some tasty roast Kobe beef salad and French onion soup, using what we were informed are the best Japanese sweet onions – which may sound a bit like hyperbole, but I can say it was some damn good soup.

Finally, ladies & gentleman, what you’ve all been waiting for, the main course: Kobe Beef Filet Tenderloin cooked medium-rare on sizzling hot plates. Other than it’s succulence and being super delicious, the fact that it’s A5 tenderloin says it all: SO GOOOOD.

 I cannot praise this place enough. Seriously, the food and not to mention the service was some of the best I’ve ever had – if you plan to take a trip to the land of the rising sun soon and have even a passing interest in beef, make sure to pen Mouriya into your itinerary. While it may break the bank, you won’t regret your newly broken bank one bit.
