 For starters, a must is Smoke Salmon. &nbsp;They only make it once a week by using a smoking vessel in the kitchen. &nbsp;This smoke salmon will change your mind about the smoke salmon you ever had in the past. The rich flavors goes par with the steaks and also matches perfectly with great white wine they select.   前菜で外せないのはこのスモークサーモン!週に一尾しか燻製しないという希少性!  今までのスモークサーモンの概念を代えさせられ、メインに匹敵する濃厚な味わいはお店が用意する最高の白ワイン達との相性も抜群です。

 I recommend to share various parts of meat like sirloin, filet mignon, ramp in small portions who you came with and have the steak cooked in medium.&nbsp; By using a special firing vessel, first the beef is cooked close to the fire so the umami stays inside. &nbsp;Once the umami is locked inside, the beef is put away from the charcoal so it slowly cooks in the inside. &nbsp;And when it's finally done, the outside is crisp,&nbsp;inside juicy and unlike other premium wagyu beef, it's not over fatty at all and you can keep eating forever.   サーロイン、ヒレ、ランプ(事前相談)等様々な部位を少しずつ堪能出来るのも楽しみの一つですが、焼き加減、私のオススメはミディアム!特製の炉窯で表面は炭火に近づけて旨みを閉じ込め、その後炭火から離しじっくり時間をかけ中に熱を通していく…  外側のカリカリ感と内側の凝縮されたジューシー感は、よくある高級肉の後半の嫌な重たさが全くなく、いくらでも食べちゃえます!

 This night Château Mouton Rothschild was served with our amazing steak and of course some lees were left. &nbsp;Lees were poured over ice cream, and tasted beyond words. &nbsp;I didn't know it was this good and if you order ice cream and red wine, I strongly recommend to have it served this way.   最高のお肉と合わせたシャトームートンの最後の「澱」の部分。この「澱」をアイスクリームと合わせる事でこんなにも爽やかな味わいになるんだと初めて知りました!行かれた方は是非試してみて下さーい(^-^)。
