It is not impossible to get a cheap steak in Japan. Osaka offers up Outback Steakhouse. I have been there several times. It is well worth the money.


The above bad boy was $160. And, it was worth every yen! You do get what you pay for in Japan. It had been aged more than three years.

There was a great place in Tokyo that sold this one for $20.


This steak can be found in Himeji for $10. It was a great deal. I wanted to order it again, but my Perfect Wife stopped me! Don`t worry, we went drinking instead..

It is also possible to go seriously on the cheap. This yummy steak was just $20.


It pays to look around a bit in Japan when you have the time. Of course, people come for the Kobe beef. But, honestly, you just buy a burger and stand in front a sign that that reads “Kobe.” It is not worth the money.

I ate (several times) it, and all I could think was “Where’s the beef?”
