One of the best place to get a good meal at reasonable prices in Japan is to go to supermarket section of the mall. Usually a food hall comes along side the supermarket.
A meat wholesale store that has been in business for over 40 years, Roman-Tei is a wagyu beef butcher that specialise in ビフテキ重 bifutekiju or “beefsteak”, where traditional craftsmen carefully select cows one by one from their single breed sources and cut them carefully according to the parts of the cow.
This is their only direct store that served their beef alongside their butcher store.
A combination of sliced meat in yakiniku style and beef steak grilled to medium rare, it is visually beautiful with its two-colour (nishiki) presentation. Furthermore, you can enjoy the bento in three ways to eat. The first is to eat as it is to savour the beautiful texture and flavour of quality wagyu.
Then add a condiment. You can eat the steak with fried garlic or wasabi for that extra kick.
At the end, you can put the soup stock and enjoy it as ochazuke.
Chazuke or ochazuke is a simple Japanese dish made by pouring green tea, dashi, or hot water over cooked rice. Common toppings include Japanese pickles, umeboshi, nori, furikake, sesame seeds, tarako and mentaiko, salted salmon, shiokara, scallions and wasabi.
For me, I liked it straight up.
