More than half the restaurants in iSquare in Tsim Sha Tsui are Japanese. You can find bread, pasta, tonkatsu, ramen to shabu shabu and sukiyaki and the prices range from affordable to expensive. I featured Gyu Jin Shabu Shabu & Sukiyaki where we had our fill of eat all you can shabu shabu. This time we tried Yakiniku Gyukura which specializes in yakiniku or grilled meat.
The beef was slightly frozen and unseasoned. When cooking the beef on the grill patience must be observed. You must stop yourself from turning the beef every few seconds. Let it cook for a 3 minutes per side or until how you like it done. As expected the beef was melt in your mouth tender. My only complaint was there wasn’t enough beef. I guess that’s what you get for the price.

At first I thought “udon with cheese? gross!” Until I tried it. The soup base was a light tomato soup and cheese was simply grated on top. It was strangely good. It was unexpectedly yummy. I loved it!

Overall the meal was faultless. The place was packed when we were there. I just felt the price was a little expensive. For a better bargain, although the place is smaller and not as nice, I suggest Gyu Jin Shabu Shabu & Sukiyaki where you can eat as much wagyu beef as your heart and cholesterol can stand.
