Speaking of brand beef in Kumamoto, “Akaushi Kumamoto”. In fact, it is one of the wagyu beef originated in Korea, and it is said to be very rare wagyu because the ratio of “scallion” is only about 10% of the total wagyu in Japan.
“Farm House Restra Mountain Village” raises calves in its own ranch. The characteristic of Akagyu is that it is raised freely in nature and eats a lot of grass full of minerals, so the flavor is condensed and has a solid taste. Although it contains a lot of red meat, the meat is soft and contains less excess fat. For this reason, the restaurant’s popular “Loin Steak Set Meal” has 250 g of beef in its portion, but it is so healthy that even one person feels that the portion is just right. Once you chew on the hot meat, the juices will fill your mouth and the unique flavor of Japanese beef will pass through your nose. It is a superb item that can be enjoyed with five senses. The recommended way of eating is to enjoy the original flavor of the meat without dipping the first bite. And for the second bite, you can try it with natural salt from the sea of Amakusa in Kumamoto that goes well with meat. It is a style of grilling meat with lava stone, so you can eat it while it is hot until the end.
The colorful pickles that comes with the set meal and the Ohagi dessert are actually hidden local flavors. It is a traditional flavor that has been passed down for a long time as “Farmhouse Restaurant Yamano Sato”. They also provide rice grown by themselves and grown in the famous water of the head of Ikeyama. They mainly use ingredients that are grown in their own garden or caught in the Aso area. They are particular about their homemade dishes too. In addition, the interior of the shop, which is built like an old Japanese house, is a traditional wooden house with tatami-matted horigotatsu seats and large beams lying on the ceiling, making it a relaxing space. The nostalgic and homey atmosphere that makes you feel as if you have returned to your hometown will soothe your travel heart. “
