A newly opened restaurant in a shopping street of Hankyu Higashi Street, “Makiyaki Niku Bar Crackle” offers the authentic Yakiniku experience with firewood and was already interviewed by media. Since the temperature of firewood is lower than the one of charcoals, it takes longer to grill and makes it even softer.

Also, it goes well with a glass of wine or beer while enjoying a smokey smell of Yakiniku. Of all menus, “Rump” is strongly recommended. When you chew a piece of meat, juice comes out instantly and tastes nice, and in addition, adding some seasonings such as mustard, pepper, and salt changes its flavour so that you could actually eat it forever!
