Japanese style Korean BBQ better known as Yakiniku was invented by Korean's living in Japan after World War II. It is different from real Korean BBQ, but unless you can't or don't eat beef, most people will say that Yakiniku is one of their favorite foods. Almost everyone has their favorite Yakiniku restaurant, but the most famous one and considered the best to many is SUTAMINAEN at Shikahama.

スタミナ苑 teppan
So what makes Sutaminaen special? Well its not only the quality of meat, but how the owner/chef trims it. They use an old fashion steel plate and gas grill which you don't see much anymore.

スタミナ苑 生野菜
Like most customers you want to start out with NAMAYASAI (Salad)

スタミナ苑 kakuteki
and order some KAKUTEKI

スタミナ苑 キムチ
or KIMICHI (Spicy pickled radish or Chinese cabbage)

スタミナ苑 ポテトサラダ
Their POTATO SALAD is famous as well.

スタミナ苑 上タン
Then move on to JYO TAN SHIO (Special tongue) for 1,800 yen just like any other Yakinuku restaurant.

スタミナ苑 ミックスホルモン
Next would be their specialty MIX HORUMON (Various guts) for 1,700 yen. By far this is the best horumon I ever had.

スタミナ苑 上カルビ
You want to try their Karubi so you order JYO KARUBI (Special boneless short rib) for 2,400 yen

スタミナ苑 特選上カルビ
or if you want to try the best its TOKUSEN JYO KARUBI (Prime boneless short rib) 1 slice 1,200 yen.

スタミナ苑 特選上ロース
It you want to try a steak kind of Yakiniku try TOKUSEN JYO ROSU (Prime loin) for 8,000-11,000 yen price

スタミナ苑 中ロース
or JYO ROSU (Special loin) for 2,400 yen, which is thinner.

スタミナ苑 特上ハラミ
You should also try JYO HARAMI (Special skirt steak) for 1,700 yen

スタミナ苑 牛ヒレ
and GYI HIRENIKU (Filet Migion) for 2,200 yen as well.

スタミナ苑 tegutan
You can order rice on the side as well, but with it also order TEGUTAN (Spicy beef soup) for 1,000 yen

スタミナ苑 comutan
or KOMUTAN (Beef soup) 1,100 yen. They are both delicious.

Sutaminaen is located in one of the most inconvenient locations. They do have a parking lot, but if you are taking public transportation, you need to take a bus or taxi from the nearest train station. Also, the wait can be crazy on weekends. Former Prime Minster Obuchi was a regular of Sutaminaen but even him with his secret police guards had to wait on line like any other customers. If any of your friends is a regular at Sutaminaen, the owner will serve several dishes which aren't on the menu. These are not only special but great as well.

スタミナ苑 inside
Its not a pretty restaurant at all and needs serious renovation, but people from all over Japan want to eat here and once you do I'm sure you will be back even with the crazy wait or inconvenient location.
