Beef Shiogamayaki at Gion Sasaki

This video introduces the amazing beef "shiogamayaki" (protein cooked in salt crust) at Gion Sasaki, at three-star restaurant in the Michelin Guide.

Gion Sasaki opened in 1997 in Ponto-cho, Gion, and after moving once in Gion, opened its current location in 2006 in Gion, where many old establishments are still standing.
The restaurant has been awarded three stars in the Michelin Guide.

In Gion Sasaki's beef shiogamayaki, wagyu beef is first seasoned with salt and pepper, let to sit, and then wrapped in a cherry leaf.
They use egg whites and salt to create a "salt kettle" around the beef and then place it in the pizza oven until it's completely browned.
When you crack the salt kettle, you can smell the fragrance of cherry blossoms in the steam.
Be sure to check out the video of the beef shiogamayaki with beautifully cooked wagyu beef and the aroma of cherry blossoms!
