Stewed tail

Stewed oxtail is a premier masterpiece dish created by the founder of Skewers & Stewed Tail SamaSama over the course of long years spent in the restaurant business.
Searching for a delicious dish that would please people, he overcame difficulties and failures until his quest finally ended in the discovery of this dish, the specialty of the house. We are justly proud of this dish, and we are sure it will bring a smile to your face.
While the beef that is most widely stewed elsewhere is beef tendon, at our pub — as its name itself indicates — we stew the tail. The tail is the part of the body that moves the most, and stewing it preserves all its flavor and makes it very soft, so that it melts in your mouth, fills you, and makes beer go down great!
Be sure to enjoy our stewed oxtail over drinks!

What is stewed tail?

We stew the tail in our secret, original sauce for eight hours. But eight hours of stewing will not necessarily make oxtail fluffy and pulpy. For that, just the right timing and heat are required, otherwise the meat will separate from the bone and you will be left with something unpalatable that is hardly stewed beef. In order that the stew will be tasty, at our pub only fully approved staff members are permitted to do the stewing.
It is precisely because we pay attention to detail that we are able to offer you a taste that is the same every time.

Japanese skewer cuisine

The other main line of cooking here — also found in the name of our pub — is skewer cuisine.
We offer a variety of skewer dishes, everything from grilled chicken and chicken meatballs to pork cutlets and grilled foods.
We are committed to serving you grilled dishes that are grilled over charcoal, and deep-fried dishes that are freshly fried and crispy.
We offer a large variety of dishes of each type, making our pub an enjoyable, popular place for young and old, for men and women alike.

Kyoto's famous obanzai cuisine

Kyoto is famous for its obanzai cuisine. At each pub, our chefs prepare 5–6 different types of obanzai per day.
They are made using Kyoto vegetables and fresh, seasonal ingredients, so they offer you the chance for a new discovery: to experience the seasons, one by one. You'll want to come in and try an obanzai even if you are dining alone.
