Steakhouse Satou Redux
Posted November 13, 2011on:
I just had to visit this steakhouse again since I’m in Tokyo once again. I’ve blogged about the steakhouse in greater detail in a previous post which you can read so I won’t go through the whole thing again.
Once again there was a long queue snaking around it. I didn’t join it the previous time I was here but since I was early this time, I decided to join and buy it as well.
Looking at all the raw slabs and slices of beef in the showcase while waiting in the queue.
And checking out the butchers inside working hard.
They were selling these wagyu minced beef croquettes
Very reasonable price as well.
So I bought one to try, since I don’t really want to fill up my stomach before my actual lunch.
Crispy on the outside but so moist and tender on the inside! And of course delicious! I really really want to buy a box of them just to eat but lunch beckoned as Satou just opened its doors.
Back up at the steakhouse, once again they squeeze in a bunch of chefs into the tiny kitchen.
Appetizer came straight away, a salad.
After making my order, the manager of the steakhouse came over to show me the slab of beef from which he would be cutting out my portion from. Look at the glorious marbling! Oh and somehow he also recognized I was Singaporean and talked to me a bit about their feature in our ST Life a while back.
My steak arrives!
I can only say that it’s like eating meat tofu (well not thaaaat soft). Kinda like nicely grilled fat that still has a beefy taste. Mmmmm…
