Aragawa in Tokyo is one of the most expensive steak houses in the world. The chef, Yamada Jiro, serves up only the best Kobe beef. Literally meaning the hide of an animal, Aragawa is the Japanese translation of the title of a novel by the famous French writer Honoré de Balzac, Le Peau de Chagrin (The Wild Ass’s Skin).
The signature dish is a charcoal grilled beef steak, made with special high-grade Tajima beef - grilled over binchotan charcoal in a bespoke kiln and simply served with seasonal vegetables to showcase both the skills of the chefs and the quality of the meat.
