Hokkaido Guided Tour #1 – Shiraoi Beef

Date:  Dec 12, 2015

After the morning walk, about 2.5 hours of non-stop walking and bird watching.  We are hungry.  So, the tour agency arranged us to have lunch here.

Iwasaki is a famous restaurant for Shiraoi beef.

I have never heard Shiraoi beef before.  But apparently, it is very famous in Hokkaido.  It is their home grown beef.  Similar to Kobe beef from Kobe.

From their facial expression, you know they are hungry and tired.

You don’t have to cook for a long time.  Depends how you want it to be.

Amazing, I have never eat the beef like this before.  So, we just keep grilling the steak.  And eat until our stomach is full.
