Ishigaki Yoshida - Japan




Visiting Yoshida Ishigaki teppanyaki restaurant was one of my favorite Wagyu food experience in Tokyo!

Owner and Chef Junichi Yoshida opened this house in 2013, with the theme "Teppanyaki in a new era", with the aim to spread the innovative world of Teppanyaki (grilled on metal) with the spirit of Shuhari (Japanese concept which describes the stages of learning to mastery)

Ishigaki Yoshida is an open kitchen that uses teppanyaki and charcoal fires to create the best cooking methods for each ingredient, where the protagonist is the Wagyu beef!

Owner-chef Junichi Yoshida, who has more than 20 years of teppanyaki experience and serves as a director of the Japan Teppanyaki Association, has been working to develop the teppanyaki industry as a certified instructor since the association was established.

This house uses one of the best Wagyu beef, sourced from “Ishigaki Island Kitauchi Ranch” and cooks it with the “Ishigaki Yoshida Ultimate Crispy grill formula” which makes it super crispy on the outside and explosively juicy on the inside.

The grill formula was developed by Chef and Owner Junichi Yoshida. Initially, the steak is cooked in the teppanyaki at a very low temperature for about 1 hour and finally grilled at high temperature using “Kishu Binchotan” charcoal (a special oak charcoal). Due to this formula you can enjoy a unique texture, a fragrant aroma, incredible juiciness and a lingering umami flavor 🙏🙏👏👏

Ishigaki Island Kitauchi Ranch, ensures the following values :

- Cattle enter olee from Tajima linage
- Long term fattening, for more than 43 months (which is significantly higher than the 28 months average of a standard Japanese black cattle)
- non genetically modified feed
- raised in Ishigaki island where cattle has long hours of sunshine and grass can be harvested 5 to 6 times a year

Thank you Owner-chef Junichi Yoshida san and team for your kindness and professionalism!!

Looking forward to visiting you soon again!
