YAKINIKU, meaning “grilled meat”, is a Japanese term that, in its broadest sense, refers to grilled meat cuisine. “YAKINIKU”
originally referred to western “Barbecue” food. Today, “YAKINIKU” commonly refers to a Japanese style of cooking bitesize
meat (usually beef and offal) and vegetables on gridirons or griddles over a flame of wood charcoals carbonized by dry
distillation or a gas/electric grill. In many parts of the world, YAKINIKU is also commonly referred to as “Japanese Barbecue”.
Most of restaurants put “bite-size meat” on plate and serve it only. People eat it after grilled by themselves.
It was our common sense until FUTAGO opens in Tokyo…
WHAT CHANGED BY FUTAGO STYLE ?
1. Half Meal by Half Price
When order a portion for one person in general yakiniku restaurant, there are 7 or 8 bite-size meats on a plate, so people cannot enjoy many kinds of meat because they’ll be full before ordering other meats.
2. A Hall Staff Grills Meat for You
Be able to eat meats at best, get a knowledge about meat, enjoy with conversation and more, getting repeaters will be available by these effectiveness.
3. Eat it Anytime, Not a Special Day
Yakiniku is known as meal for a special day. FUTAGO is trying to change that by FUTAGO STYLE such as “Half meal by half price”.
4. Satisfied with Carefully Selected Meats
During the popular lunch, only a small but divine selection of ramen is available, accompanied by a rich tonkotsu broth. The thing that sets a meal apart at this Japanese jewel is the stunning beef quality – cuts like black Wagyu or Hamideru kalbi are fantastically creamy, bold in meaty flavors and rich with fatty notes.
