Enjoy Gourmet Dishes and Sweets in the Tokai Region
AEON MALL Nagoya Noritake Garden has 48 eating establishments.
With so many restaurants, choosing which place to visit might be a dilemma. If this describes you, we will now introduce two eating spots where you can savor cuisine from the Tokai region.
1. Isshobin: Enjoy Matsusaka Beef Yakiniku-Style!
When visiting the Tokai region, you'll want to try premium Wagyu Matsusaka Beef, a specialty of Mie Prefecture. However, going to Mie Prefecture to try this expensive beef costs money and time.
Fortunately, there's a conveyor belt yakiniku restaurant at AEON MALL Nagoya Noritake Garden—something that's unique even in Japan. At Isshobin, diners can enjoy this delicious beef yakiniku-style at reasonable prices.
Isshobin opened for business in 1962. It's a long-established, premium Matsusaka Beef specialty restaurant in Mie Prefecture.
The shop can maintain quality control and cut costs by purchasing an entire cow. This, in turn, allows customers to enjoy beef more reasonably priced than other restaurants.
Customers can choose their yakiniku ingredients by taking them directly from the conveyor belt or ordering them using the menu tablet.
The menu offers 32 different cuts of beef―each one representing a different part of the cow. There's also premium Japanese Black Wagyu Beef, vegetables, and other single items.
When cooking the Matsusaka beef with vegetables on the grill, the meat's delicate fat brings out the delicious taste of the veggies.
2. Saijoen Matcha Cafe: A Must-Visit for Matcha Lovers!
After a delicious yakiniku dinner, we recommend dessert at Saijoen Matcha Cafe. This matcha specialty cafe is popular in the Tokai region.
Saijoen Matcha Cafe was established in 1988. It sources Nishio Matcha, a rare and organic matcha green tea. The shop offers various innovative sweets that combine tradition and modern-day sensibilities.
On this visit, our writer chose the Matcha Zukushi Parfait and Saijo Matcha Soft Float from the shop's popular menu.
The slight bitterness of the matcha perfectly matched the parfait's sweetness. It was so tasty that our writer couldn't stop eating! This was truly a blissful moment.
