Well, almost. We came here for dinner and were quite sceptical about how good the food was since it was all horse meat. We were surprised. We took a set menu (see photo). Started with appetiser of horse meat sashimi and various cuts, horse "parts" soup and ended with various cuts of horse meat on a hot stone. Service was... More

It was my second time to go Suganoya Kamidori. The raw meat is soft, juicy, gummy, good-flavor, and creamy. You have to reserve the seat before you go for sure. Sushi, and rare-grilled BBQ are also "must-eat". Around JPY 20000 1.5 hour-dinner for 4 people, with some beer and grasses of alcohols. Good C/P value for this quality.

Horse meat is a must try in Kumamoto! There is horse steak, horse meat humbug and horse meat sashimi. All tastes lovely! It is not as scary as you think. We enjoyed it very much!!
