yonezawa beef

Dear all,

I am seeking your advice on where I can find the yonezawa beef? Obviously I need to go to Yonezawa town. But are there any good restaurant you guys recommend? (Preferably for lunch since that will be cheaper :) )

Thanks for the advice.

Everywhere in town in Yonezawa you can find places that serve Yonezawa beef. Even on the platform of JR Yonezawa station, there are stores with Yonezawa bento boxes from 800-1200 yen.

If you visit Yonezawa Shrine, nearby is a 2-story souvenir place 上杉城史苑. One of the restaurants there is called ABCYS which serves grilled Yonezawa beef meal from 4200 yen. They also have 690 yen Yonezawa beef burger and 150 yen Yonezawa beef bun.

We didn’t go but a restaurant in town called 登起波comes highly recommended by a friend who had been there. G/F has all kinds of Yonezawa beef souvenir, 1/F is restaurant. A popular hot-pan grill is called 壽喜燒. Note that the place is closed on Tuesdays.

hi william512, i think due to the time constrain, we may not be able to go to yonezawa. Do you think there is any city which I can get the yonezawa beef?

We will be travelling from 山形 to 藏王温泉 and realize that going to yonezawa might take up too much time.

Thanks!

Will you be going to Ginzan Onsen? One of the ryokans there called Kozankaku is famous for its Yonezawa beef meal.

Hi all,

I decided to go to yonezawa in the evening. I am wondering if I have a budget of 4000 yen per person for dinner. Will that be possible to have yonezawa beef?

Do you have any recommendation? Because I usually have a lunch at decent place. However, the schedule is pretty tight and I will miss the lunch time.

ABCYS in 上杉城史苑 serves more budget meals, but the place closes pretty early at 16.00. Meals in 登起波 are more expensive. My friend says it starts from 4500 yen to 8000 yen, and he was there 2 years ago! 登起波 is opened till 21.00, but reservation is mandatory after 18.00. And remember it closes every Tuesday.

Thank you, William512. I guess I will stick with the following 2 restaurant provided by you and aim for a 3000-4000 yen lunch set then :)

Those lunch set at 3650 yen looks good! And most importantly accordable given yen rate is so high nowadays!
