Although roast beef originated in England, fusing it with Japanese rice bowl-style cuisine gave birth to the “Roast Beef Don (roast beef rice bowl).”

Roast Beef Ohno opened as a specialty shop for the dish in a time where Roast Beef Don was not being offered at many places in Japan.

Nowadays, it has become a popular spot where people visit all the way from overseas just to savor the Roast Beef Don.

For the sauce, diners can choose between two types: the “Chaliapin Sauce,” which is made by seasoning grated onions with soy sauce, and other ingredients, and the “Yamawasabi Sauce” (Horseradish Sauce).

The Chaliapin Sauce is a staple at Roast Beef Ohno, known for its richness and sweetness. The sauce has a delightful aroma and pairs excellently not only with the meat but also with white rice.

You can choose between Chaliapin Sauce and Horseradish Sauce

On the other hand, the Horseradish Sauce combines grated onions and homemade sauce with the addition of wasabi, providing a deep and flavorful taste.

The horseradish adds a refreshing aftertaste to the dish!

How to best enjoy the Kuroge Wagyu Roast Beef Don Set, which sells over 300 orders in a day

At Roast Beef Ohno, there’s a recommended way to eat the Roast Beef Don.

For the first bite, try the roast beef with just homemade mayonnaise.

The homemade mayonnaise has a refreshing taste with subdued tartness, complementing the natural sweetness of the Kuroge wagyu.

As you progress, breaking the egg yolk adds richness, bringing a change to the flavor. The creamy texture of the yolk also provides a different feel to each bite.

Eating it together with white rice makes for a delightful taste that fills your mouth with joy.

For the meat that hasn’t been touched by the homemade mayonnaise, sprinkle some rock salt provided on the table. The rock salt elevates the umami of the roast beef.

Finally, try the condiments included in the set, namely the “Horseradish” and “Miso-marinated Cream Cheese,” with the roast beef.

The horseradish adds a spicy kick!

For those that enjoy rich flavors, the Miso-marinated Cream Cheese is a great choice. The cream cheese marinated in miso adds a really rich aroma to the dish.

Roast beef prepared with meticulous care

Roast Beef Ohno takes great pride in the fine details of their roast beef: finely marbled fat, thin slices, and a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

In order to preserve the meat’s texture, it’s slowly roasted in a low-temperature oven.

Following that, the meat is aged for 24 hours to truly bring out its flavor—a roast beef made with time and care.

The painstakingly prepared roast beef is moist and has a glossy texture, aptly described as “silky.”

The roast beef is so delicious that people are continually drawn in by its taste, with the restaurant selling around 300 servings a day due to its immense popularity.

The long lines forming even before opening are understandable once you’ve tasted this exquisite dish at Roast Beef Ohno!
