Insatiable Girl

Tsuruhashi puts Gyu-Kaku to shame. This place was amazing. Everything we got was great: assorted kimchi, salted prime beef tongue (pictured above), Kobe beef, Harami (prime around the skirt), Asian yam wrapped in perilla and bacon (pictured below), burdock root wrapped in bacon, seafood plate, berkshire pork belly, kimchi fried rice, mango pudding, and coconut milk with green tea (last picture). My mouth is watering just thinking about it again.

It’s the best yakiniku spot I’ve been to, probably because the meat was really fresh and marinated well. It also helped that they gave you multiple sauces and the servers were nice and on top of their game. My glass never reached half full and an empty plate never stayed on our table for more than half a minute.

My favorite dishes were the Harami, Asian yam, salted beef tongue, and coconut milk with green tea. The only downsides: 1) the restaurant is pretty tiny (when we left, the wait to be seated was more than an hour) and 2) the ventilation system sucks. Two hours later, I still smell like meat. It doesn’t matter though, this place is worth the drive. Check it out.
