Grilled meat lovers would most cer­tainly find this restau­rant a treat as pre­mium cuts of beef are lov­ingly cooked the tra­di­tional Ja­panese way.

Cur­rently, this pop­u­lar Ja­panese grill house has over 70 out­lets world­wide, a far cry from its hum­ble be­gin­ning in a small back street in Ebisu, in Tokyo’s Shibuya area. Its rep­u­ta­tion pre­cedes it pri­mar­ily due to its top drawer Aus­tralian beef and the sig­na­ture di­a­mond-cut treat­ment of their meats. Hence, you can’t go wrong with the di­a­mond­cut kalbi. One of To­raji’s sig­na­ture dishes, the di­a­mond-cut en­sures the short ribs are cooked bet­ter and faster, re­sult­ing in a nicely done sear that seals in the juici­ness of the meat.

The meats are served in a beau­ti­fully set plat­ter, with a stand­out found in the grilled Wagyu. Bear­ing the high­est grade that can be be­stowed on Ja­panese beef, the A5 grade Wagyu is sim­ply ex­quis­ite – nicely mar­bled and melts in the mouth.

A rec­om­mended soupy ac­com­pa­ni­ment to the meal is the restau­rant’s hot and spicy ‘yukke­jang’ noo­dle soup. The hearty broth bathing the mix­ture of noo­dles and beef slices is lightly spicy with an almost creamy con­sis­tency that is sim­ply flavour­ful and tasty.
