Uni Goya Opens New Restaurant ‘Yukke Goya’ in Collaboration With Ozaki Beef

05.December.2018 | FOOD / SPOT

Sea urchin specialist restaurant Uni Goya has teamed up with one of Japan’s leading wagyu beef brands Ozaki Beef to open their new restaurant Yukke Goya. The grand opening was held in Shinsen, Shibuya on November 30, 2018.

To celebrate the opening, the restaurant is selling its Uni Special at the special price of ¥2,500 from the regular ¥3,500 until December 30. It’s made with world-renowned Ozaki beef and additive-free sea urchin which is imported by air every day.

 

The use of absolutely no coagulant alums in the sea urchin means the taste is never bitter or sharp. The taste is as close as possible to freshly fished sea urchin allowing you to practically enjoy the real strong and sweet taste obtained when fished fresh from the ocean.

 

Okazaki Beef is a name given to beef farmed from cows in Miyazaki that have been raised from calves by Muneharu Ozaki. This Japanese black beef is the only brand in Japan to have the rearer’s  name attached to it. Its international recognition comes from the quality of fat in the beef. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say there are no other brands out there at such a high quality and with such light fat. To fully enjoy this lean meat and its fat, Yukke Goya will serve it sliced as yukhoe but replace the egg yolk with sea urchin.

Ozaki Beef – 3 Grill Combo

(Small) 1-2 People – ¥5,200 → ¥3,900 (Pre-Tax)

(Large) 3-4 People – ¥10,400 → ¥7,800 (Pre-Tax)

This triple grill combo is served rare and offers the full delicious flavour of Ozaki beef. It comes with lean Ozaki beef, specially selected A5 grade fillet, and Chateaubriand steak to taste and compare.

Ozaki Beef Chateaubriand Roze Katsu (80g): ¥4,200 (Pre-Tax)

This Chateaubrian steak, cut from the thickest part of a fillet of beef, is served very rare (cooked in 30 seconds). By eating it with the accompanying truffle salt you can enjoy the sweet and full delectable flavour of the meat.

Ozaki Beef x Additive-Free Sea Urchin Yukke: ¥2,400 (Pre-Tax)

It isn’t packaged sea urchin that is used for this dish – it’s saltwater sea urchin. No coagulant alums or any other additives are used. Instead, it is shipped soaked in sterilised saltwater with the same salt content as in the ocean. It is shipped from Hokkaido on the same day it is caught fresh.

There are 20 specially selected sea urchin dishes to choose from including the Sea Urchin Shabu, Sea Urchin Glutton and more. Food connoisseurs won’t be able to resist the menu over at Yukke Goya!

  • 【Tokyo Dinner】Nostalgic food! The next trend is Monjayaki!? Shibuya”Osozai to Senbei-Monja Sato”

    31.May.2017 | FEATURES / FOOD

    The good old days food such as spaghetti Neapolitan, shaved ice cream, hot cake, and yakisoba has been becoming popular again. These are nostalgic foods for looking back at good old memories for people who are born in Showa era(1926~1989), and it also is kind of new food for people who are born in Heisei era(1989~).

    170525_KS_00010

    I would like to focus on “Monja-yaki” as the next Showa gourmet trend. People who are living in other than Kanto area may not be familiar with this food. There are two different ways to cook Monja-yaki in Tokyo; Asakusa way and Tsukishima way.

    170525_KS_00020

    The big difference is to make the base or not. The base is like building a breakwater not to spread dough on the pan. Tsukishima way is to make a base with ingredients such as cabbage at first and then pour the dough on to it. On the other hand, Asakusa way is to make the thin crust with dough at first and then eat it with chopped ingredients on the pan.

    170525_KS_00086

    Sato Koji who manages unique restaurants such as “Cristiano’s” in Yoyogi-uehara and “Pappon Kitchen” in Shibuya opened the new restaurant called “Osozai to Senbei-Monja Sato” this year.

    170525_KS_00016

    As a lot of experienced chefs who learns a lot about multi cultural food, he prepared from standard Monja-Yaki to unique ones such as Russian style ones(1620yen include tax) which has beets and sour cream and Thailand’s style(1620yen include tax) which has fish sauce.170525_KS_00033 170525_KS_00066

    Asakusa style thin crust type Monja is the one which Mr.Sato has been eating since he was little. I highly recommend you to enjoy the nostalgic food in this at home restaurant.

This dish features beef and chopped onion that has been marinated for approximately one day, and then fried in garlic oil for the ultimate tender texture. Another tongue-tantalizing dish is the “Roast Beef Massaman Curry” — a log dish of three layers filled with vegetables, beef, tortillas and much more. The dish is completed with curry sauce.

    There is also a whole roast chicken on the menu. The whole chicken is marinated with original spices and cooked in a Dutch oven. The grilled dishes are packed with goodness and overflowing with originality.

    20.May.2020 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    Shibuya 5G Entertainment Project launched its new digital platform “Virtual Shibuya” with an opening event on May 19. The event Virtual Shibuya helped promote release of Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 with talks and performances from SEKAI NO OWARI’s DJ LOVE, virtual YouTuber and member of Nijisanji Ange Katrina, Chinatsu Wakatsuki of Future Design Shibuya, and Naohiro Ukawa of S/U/P/E/R DOMMUNE—all of whom are fans of Ghost in the Shell.

     

    Officially recognised by Shibuya City, Virtual Shibuya comes in response to the effects of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) which has brought tight restrictions to the economy and people’s way of life. It will enable people to continue enjoying entertainment from the comfort of their homes by participating in a whole host of virtual events and activities. The project aims to deliver content from Shibuya with live performances from artists, art exhibitions, talks, and more. The use of 5G and the latest cutting edge technology will connect the real Shibuya to a virtual space, combining the realms of the digital and real world.

     

    The guests joined over 50,000 users for the first event which went down a storm. Chinatsu Wakatsuki said: “I was amazed how much it looked like Shibuya! I can’t go to Shibuya right now, so it felt like I got to visit home again after so long.”

     

    Shibuya was fully recreated a virtual space for people to visit

    Lots of Ghost in the Shell fans gathered in the city

    Everybody in this virtual world jumped into their avatar skins, including the diverse range of guests who probably would never have come together had it not been for the Ghost in the Shell theme, as well as DJ LOVE, Katrina, Chinatsu Wakatsuki, and Naohiro Ukawa.

    The real world and the world of Ghost in the Shell collide

    The four performers, who were coming face to face with each other for the first time, talked to guests about what they love about Ghost in the Shell while strolling around Virtual Shibuya and having fun with fans on equal terms.

     

    Comments from the performers

    ・Chinatsu Wakatsuki (Future Design Shibuya)
    “I was amazed how much it looked like Shibuya! Shibuya is a place I hold near and dear to my heart. There were a lot of ‘firsts’ for me, like my first time using an avatar, and meeting new people for the first time, so I thought it was going to be difficult at first, but I found myself not nervous at all and had fun with everyone in there using this futuristic entertainment. Looking forward, au 5G will grow and the number of things we can do will as well. I hope to challenge myself as a tarento and a mum in many different things and have fun with this Virtual Shibuya!”

     

    ・“DJ LOVE” (SEKAI NO OWARI)
    “It felt like I had dived right into the world of Ghost in the Shell, my favourite series. It was a wonderfully fun event which expanded on my dreams. I’m looking forward to seeing it evolve and I hope to perform live there at some point. I want to make stuff that people who haven’t been physically able to go to venues up to now can enjoy. I think it would be fun to communicate with people who participated.”

     

    ・Ange Katrina
    “The streets of Shibuya I know were completely transformed into the world of Ghost in the Shell, and my favourite Tachikoma made an appearance too. For a Ghost in the Shell fan like myself it was a whale of a time! Right now we have to battle with staying indoors. Me having disappeared has caused a bit of trouble, but the thrill of this virtual event has lifted my nerves. I had a lot of fun.”

     

    You can check out footage from the event in the video below which was posted on Shibuya 5G Entertainment Project’s official YouTube channel.
