Famous restaurant [Wagyu, Yakiniku, Horumon (Japanese beef, BBQ, Horumon) Sankichi] in Uradera-machi is back with a bang!

October 08, 2023 open

We caught good news that the popular yakiniku restaurant [Sankichi] in Uradera-machi, which regrettably closed in February 2020, has been revived for the first time in about three years. The key figure behind the revival is Ryoma Kihara, a former regular customer and the current owner. I myself have been a regular customer for over 20 years. I used to go there all the time with my friends and family. But when I heard that the owner was closing the restaurant at the end of 2019, I wrote him a letter asking him to give me the recipe for his secret sauce, and he gave me the recipe," says Kihara. He said he was going to use the sauce recipe he learned personally at BBQs and other events, but as he made the sauce, he perfected it and reported it to the former general. He was told, "You can do whatever you want," and that is when he started thinking about opening his own restaurant.


While working as a painter, he also spent every weekend at a yakiniku restaurant to deepen his knowledge of yakiniku. As a result, in addition to the famous horumon, wagyu beef, which was not on the menu before, has been added to the lineup so that customers can enjoy yakiniku to the fullest.


I was really happy to receive the signboard that was used in the old store, the kitchen knife used by the owner, and the soot-covered manekineko (cat) that was the symbol of the store. I want to make it a fun place where everyone is laughing and smiling.


Wagyu zabuton 1680 yen. A rare part of Wagyu beef from Kumamoto Prefecture. A high quality part of beef so rare that it is eaten with steak, but feel free to try it with yakiniku.


Horumon Hoso - 700 yen. Hoso, a specialty served with secret sauce.
