Simple Fare

Happy Kitchen 金の鹿 @ Nara

There’s only one reason why a tourist would go to Nara – to visit Todaiji and feed those wild deers roaming its gardens. On the way leading towards Todaiji, there’s only one place you will pass by that would your last chance to catch lunch.

After feeding the deers in the morning, Happy Kitchen was the only place without a one-hour wait during the weekend we were there, and it was lunchtime. So we decided to go ahead and feed ourselves.

What attracted us was their すき焼きハンバーグ sukiyaki hamburger. It is similar to MOS burger but using local Japanese black beef! At ¥980, it was a steal!

The beautifully melted cheddar added to the appeal.

10/10 for presentation, it was delicious too.

がっつリステーキ gatturi beef steak

The がっつリステーキ gatturi beef steak describes the way the steak is cut into many (gaturri) pieces. Served with its au jus and a side of rice, but it was a poorly executed steak, very dry and overcooked.

Luckily for me, the 牛すじ煮込み stewed beef tendon was beautiful and the rice from the beefsteak was just perfect to eat with the sauce from the stew.

Not a place I would make a detour, but it would be a good place to take a rest before proceeding to Todaiji.
