I went to Aso, Kumamoto prefecture with my friends from the US for sightseeing. We went to Uchinomaki hot spring to eat Aka-ushi beef, i.e., red cattle beef. Kumamoto is famous for its Aka-ushi beef.
Basically, Kuro-ushi beef, i.e., black cattle beef is popular in Japan because Kuro-ushi beef contains a lot of fat and therefore is sweet. However, Aka-ushi beef contains less fat and has light taste. That's why you can enjoy the taste of the beef itself.
We went to Rorian in Uchinomaki hot spring. The restaurant has traditonal appearance and interior. Inside of the restaurant was very quiet and I felt very comfortable. I ordered Aka-ushi steak and my friends orderd Aka-ushi hamburg steak. The Aka-ushi steak had a very good taste and melted in my mouth. You can enjoy the marvelous steak only at 1980 yen! The humberg steak was also very good. It was verys soft and its demiglace sauce was very rich. You can get it only at 1180 yen!
