Only a 2-minute walk from Okachimachi Station, this sukiyaki (hot pot stew) and shabu-shabu speciality restaurant seeks to give clients high-quality meat cuisine at reasonable costs. The Olive Yumebuta is one of the dishes presented that cost less than 1,000 Yen. The pork in this dish comes from pigs bred on Shikoku Island’s Kagawa Prefecture. Because there are so many olive trees in this location, olives are put into the pigs’ meal. The meat from these healthy pigs has a rich, sweet, and refreshing flavour, as well as a strong umami component. This restaurant’s sukiyaki and shabu-shabu are both fantastic!
