Matsusarap!

29 Dec

One of my mother’s friends recommended this restaurant in Osaka. It’s called “M” or Matsusakagyu Yakiniku. Must-visit daw when in Osaka. So dito pa lang sa Manila, nagpa-reserve na kami, table for five. Thanks to their online reservation. And thanks also to Dante for booking ๐Ÿ˜€ I believe they only have seven tables.

ย 
So we made it to our 6pm reservation. Hehe! Di kami naligaw. Yes, thanks again to our tour guide, Dante ๐Ÿ˜‚ ย Well, at first when we got there, litong lito sila kung sino ba kami?! We said reservation under “Cantada” (my maiden name). Wala daw. Baka daw we’re reserved in another branch. But no, sure si Mother na ito yung branch ๐Ÿ˜‚ Medyo ninerbyos ako kasi OMG, gutom na kami ๐Ÿ˜‚
But anyway, to make the long story short, the reservation was under “Dizon”. LOL.

So according to Kuni, the owner slash chef slash taga-explain ng menu slash new friend ni Dante on Facebook, this was their bestseller, the Matsusaka Beef DX Platter ๐Ÿ˜€

ย 

So there it was… A plate full of perfectly sliced raw meat ๐Ÿ˜

ย 

Look at that marbled meat… They say it’s even better than wagyu beef.

ย 

So Kuni helped us out ๐Ÿ˜€ he started by spreading this block of what seemed to be like butter but was actually fat ๐Ÿ˜‚ OMG and my dad thought that it was some kind of appetizer ๐Ÿ˜‚ he almost ate it! Hahahahaha! Buti na lang, he asked me first what it was and I’m like “I have no idea!” ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

We also ordered some garlic rice to go with our beef platter. Soooo good!

ย 

It also came with some mushrooms, veggies and corn. Damien loves corn ๐Ÿ˜€

ย 

So there it was… Soft, tasty, melts-in-your-mouth beefy goodness. Oh my. ย If beef were marshmallows, this would be it. Hahaha! Labo?! ๐Ÿ˜‚ But you’ll know exactly what I mean.

ย 

We all had a great time here in M. ย Definitely a must when in Osaka ๐Ÿ˜ Winner siya!

ย 
Thank you, Kuni, for accommodating us! See you again soon for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™ Hopefully no more confusion with reservation names ๐Ÿ˜‚ LOL!

ย 

We went to the branch called M Hanare at the 2/F Daruma Building, Namba, Chuo-Ku, Osaka City.ย  Make sure you go to the right branch.ย  LOL!

Get ready for all my #missingOsaka posts.ย  Haha!ย  I so miss Japan and being with my family!ย  Cannot wait for the next trip.ย  Luckily, we all got a 5-year visa!ย  Hooray!ย  So we’re already planning our next trip.ย  Haha!

We enjoyed Osaka so much.ย  Food trip siya talaga.ย  I really didn’t shop much but eat… oh yes.ย  You can enter any restaurant here and for sure masarap yung food!ย  So yes, we entered this restaurant because we saw pictures of one of our favorites… Karaage!!! Also lots of pics of chickens on their walls.

Everything in their menu was Japanese and no one really spoke in English, so I apologize I don’t know what this restaurant is called nor the exact address.ย  Haha!ย  I am so useless sorry.ย  Haha!

Thankfully all their menus always have photos which is a lifesaver!ย  So I got my favorite, the katsu chicken with curry of course.ย  Hehe… It was 824 Yen which is around Php 321.00.ย  Not bad at all!!!

I am also so glad that Damien loves Japanese food as well.ย  It’s not hard to feed him here.ย  Unlike when we were in Hongkong, all he ate was fried rice.ย  LOL!

My parents got the chicken with egg over rice dish ๐Ÿ™‚ย  My friend, Isabel, said it’s called Oyako-don.ย  “Oya” means parent and “ko” means child… So the chicken is the parent? and the egg is the child? LOL.
