The Finest A5 Rank Wagyu Comes to Asakusa at the Wagyu Dining PANGA585!
PANGA is a very well-known brand for its overwhelming taste of yakiniku at Yakiniku PANGA in the Okachimachi area (Tokyo), and now they offer a Japanese wagyu in Asakusa by opening their second restaurant “Wagyu Dining PANGA585”.
The restaurant is at 4th floor of Marugoto Nippon building, 8 minutes walk from Asakusa station and 9 minutes walk from Tawaramachi Station (both station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line)
The interior of this restaurant is a bit different with the one in Okachimachi, as all of the seats is designed to counter-seat with a teppan (iron plate) in front of each seat.
This time we would like to introduce the tasty wagyu course of Wagyu Dining PANGA585 which is available from 7thof June!
The course menu consists of salad, meat sushi, sirloin and outside skirt steak, A5 rank wagyu steak, ishiyaki roast beef fried rice, and yoghurt with date syrup as dessert.
The course starts with the green salad.
Most of us are familiar with the milled sheets of nori that are enfolded around mostly sushi, but for this appetizer, seaweed as the salad topping generate a Japanese style of salad.
Undoubtedly, seaweed can never go wrong with anything as the taste of the salad blends well with the pleasant savory flavor of seaweed. The salad is served fresh, has a great taste sensation, and not to forget it is good for our health too!
Have you had a beef sushi before?
If not, this is your chance to have a bite of it. The tenderness of the beef makes an absolute touch of its taste.
We took one bite of the slightly scorched beef sushi and was instantaneously in love. The soft texture of the beef and rich fatty senses filled in the mouth, making this a definite must-try.
Then after the beef sushi, we had a sirloin steak.
It’s important to note that “sirloin” signifies to a large cut of steak that gets cut into several other types of steak. Sirloin comes from the back of a beef, behind its ribs but ahead of the rump area.
The sirloin steak served in medium rare and as it is the top sirloin meat, it is delicate and don’t have a need to chew. A good balance of texture and flavor.
