One can never have enough Japanese food. At YURAKUEN, they entice you to a spread of delicious mouth watery goodness all in an attempt to transport you to a place magical place far far away.
Huge doors greet one after walking through a long walkway. An escape from the concrete jungle, the main dining hall of YURAKUEN is an excellent place for a relaxing getaway.
If one would wish to do teppanyaki, small private rooms are prepared with excellent exhaust and equipped with proper equipment to give you a show.
Fresh Salmon is mixed with onion and lemon sauce to give it a zesty flavor. A perfect precursor to salad.
Looking like ordinary croquettes, these balls have squid inside the salmon meat. As such, each bite has something to look forward to.
A special kind of roll, the YURAKUEN is a must order. Similar to a California Maki, this one has twice the meat and a layer of cream cheese.
FRESHNESS is an important aspect of JAPANESE FOOD. At YURAKUEN, they take this very seriously.
Diners that aren't quite into raw dishes, would also appreciate that there are a lot of grilled and cooked items that would make their stomachs happy.
For something on the sweet side, you could go for the BEEF NEGI ROLL TERIYAKI.
The BUTA KAKUNI is a pork dish that one might mistaken for beef. The tenderness is on point and is unmistakenly delicious.
Something from the grill, the BEEF KALBIE YAKI NIKU is definitely worth the waiting for.
But if there was one beef dish you shouldn't miss, it should be the WAGYU. Served on a sizzling plate, get a piece after a few seconds as it cooks instantly. The marbling shows the high quality. After one bite, experience and understand the price tag that came with it. There's a certain flavor and texture that brings out the goodness.
Solo diners need not worry as there are also sets that are available for lunch or dinner.
For someone that might be indecisive, they could go for a BENTO. It might have some tempura, grilled meat, an assortment of sashimi. If soups the bet, YURAKUEN has the CHIRINABE BENTO SET that has excellent soup option that is filled with seafood and has different sides as well.
