Never be fooled by photos! Searching for a new steak restaurant is not as easy as it looks. After some book research I discovered this restaurant (Chicciano) which is in principle a restaurant specializing in /gyu/ meat. After our entrance to the restaurant, I immediately established that most of the beef is not what I expected.
This is a good example of Japanese beef that is second-rate. I was surprised that when they showed me the cut dusted by salt and pepper as this seems inappropriate. The bone-in chuck steak or roast is one of the more economical cuts of beef and you see why.
The beef that they serve most is American beef, and you find groups of men looking for a good cut, however they did have some Japanese gyu from Saga island /chuck/ which I ordered. The rest is history, a decent steak but by know my means worthy of the cost.
