Akaushi Dining Yoka-Yoka opened on November 29 on the 10th floor of Kitte Hakata. The restaurant is the first and only restaurant in Fukuoka to source akaushi beef directly from an affiliated farm in Kumamoto Prefecture. Akaushi is a brand of beef from Kumamoto known for its red color and lean quality. The meat used for their Akaushi-don (¥1,800) is not fatty, yet maintains a good level of marbling. This is a great opportunity to enjoy this umami-rich Aso specialty without having to visit the area. The dish is prepared with a layer of flash-fried beef on top of white rice covered in a sweet soy-based sauce and accented with a soft boiled egg and wasabi. The company has 13 restaurants in Kumamoto, but this is the first location outside Kumamoto.
