The restaurant's top choice is its Western-style menu featuring Nagasaki's Houjyuu pork, which is raised in a clean environment. The rare chateaubriand of Houjyu pork, which is so well managed that it can even be eaten as sashimi, is deep-fried with exquisite heat, making the pork cutlet pink in the center and soft and juicy. Also, familiar Western dishes such as hamburger steak made with Kobe beef and ground beef are a rank up in taste. The Chateaubriand Tonkatsu Set Meal, 2,200 yen, is limited to 10 servings per day.
