True to it’s motto,Mouriya is a exclusive restaurant but it’s easy to go in.

The meat is so tender with fine, sweet, marbled texture which melts in your mouth.

Mouriya is located just across the Bifteck kawamura,so it’s a little hard to choose which restaurant I should go:)

They purchase whole carefully selected champion Kobe cows,so they can provide the best meat at reasonable prices.

KISSHOKICHI has two stores in Chinatown Kobe. One is a stand and the other is a restaurant.
