Cooking methods you can choose

At Misono, they prioritize having their customers “Eat warm meals by having a teppan plate in front of each table” while keeping the style of Teppanyaki steaks. Therefore, They have provided two cooking methods of styles A and B, and customers can choose by themselves.

◯Style A: HALAL cooking method
Although it differs from style A, they grill beef with dishes and cooking utensils exclusively used for HALAL. They grill meat by placing HALAL teppan plate on top of a generally used teppan plate.

*All ingredients and condiments used in both styles are HALAL and disposable plates, and utensils are available.

◯Style B: Existing cooking method since establishment of the restaurant
Although we also use the same plate to grill non-HALAL beef, this is a method that makes the beef taste juicier.

Why did they decide to start HALAL-friendly services?

They received many requests from customers mentioning “I want to try HALAL Kobe beef.” Although normal Kobe beef is already something of a very high value, HALAL Kobe beef is even more rare to find, so they thought over about it many times until deciding to incorporate it.
