Yakiniku in Japanese literally means “grilled meat” and these style restaurants have adopted this name because guests eat what they grill on the table. Dai Yaki is a popular Japanese yakiniku restaurant that originated in Chiba Japan but now has branched out internationally in Bangkok’s Takatown in the Phrom Phong area.
When you enter Dai Yaki you will immediately feel like you’ve been whisked away to Japan. The two-storied restaurant is decorated with Daruma dolls, and the large posters illustrating the different cuts of beef spotlight what Dai Yaki is known for, incredible meat.
Begin your culinary adventure with gyutan, or Japanese beef tongue. This particular cut of beef is considered a delicacy in Japan. It’s usually thinly sliced so that it cooks fast. Make sure to flip it quickly once the meat begins to curl so that it remains tender and doesn’t overcook.
The beef tongue should hit the grill before other meat cuts so that its distinct flavor is not contaminated by other flavors. Dai Yaki offers three choices of gyutan on their menu listed as Tongue (150 baht), Special Tongue (299 baht), and Special Thick Cut Tongue (450 baht).
Dai Yaki is a place where you can truly pamper yourself with some of the most premium quality choices of beef in the world. They have a special license to specifically import Matsuzaka Gyu (950 baht), Kobe Gyu (900 baht), and Osama Karubi (999 baht), some of the best cuts of beef direct from Japan.
Meat of this quality comes highly marbled, cooks quickly when grilled, and is guaranteed to melt in your mouth. Make sure to dip the sizzling slices in one of Dai Yaki’s homemade sauces before eating it!
For the more adventurous diner, intestines are a popular must-try yakiniku item. On the menu as Insides (150 baht), these small intestines may not sound appetizing, but they are excellent to snack on while imbibing due to its strong, distinct flavor. They can be a bit chewy, so grill them over a medium flame to cook it longer without burning, though some prefer a slight char on the outside.
For solo or budget-conscious diners Dai Yaki offers several set menu items that will let you enjoy the yakiniku experience without breaking the bank. As an example, the Beef & Tongue Set (199 baht) includes meat, a bowl of rice, small side salad, and a soup.
Vegetarians won’t feel left out at Dai Yaki. The Yasai Yaki Set (179 baht) is a vegetarian-friendly alternative set menu that includes a selection of vegetables for grilling, a bowl of rice, a small salad, and soup.
For an authentic yakiniku experience, visit Dai Yaki in Takatown for their incredible selection of premium quality meats at fair prices.
