i had the same experience at a similar joint with my inlaws. then i had the same dinner prepared at a different japanese steakhouse and it was delicious. it's all about the cook. though i usually just stick to the sushi.

Yea, that does seem really cheap. I think the really good stuff is closer to $30 per ounce. Just recently had a Kobe burger @ a place called Burger Bar ('upscale' burgers and a fantastic craft/import beer selection). I can do better at home with ground chuck.

Yes, it is all about the cook. I love teppyanki and have had some that was really good and some that was really bad, both at the same place. That doesn't change the fact of what it is though, cut up and sauced meat.

When it comes to good beef, it can be hard to beat a good Brazilian steakhouse. Man alive, when they come around with the giant skewers....mmmmmmmMMMmmmm!

The Japanese kick ass with fish and seafood, but for a good hunk of red meat, nah.

It's just so hard to choose one from a Brazillion.

Yes. Those joints are the best when it comes to all you can eat MEAT!

While I have had bad experiences at restaurants and can understand your disappointment, it is hardly the restaurants fault. If you go to an Asian restaurant and expect them to prepare you and American style steak, that is pretty odd....

Yes. I fail to see the tragedy here on the restaurants part.

I absolutely adore most American steak. Although I like to try other foods, I still have a steak of one kind or another 90% of the time we eat out. I just know that if I try something different I will regret that decision and wish I had the steak instead.

I have never, ever proved myself wrong, so 10% of the meals I have out are steakless and a personal tragedy for me.

I do the same thing. MY wife "Why don't you try something different?"
"No. I want steak."
"But you always have steak"
"I like steak."
