Idea once had a higher rank than Kawamura on tabelog and it’s something that I did’t quite understand.
The only dish that I enjoyed was the beef tongue with white truffle. And honestly, I enjoyed the beef at kawamura way more than Idea that I could skip to Idea for one Kawamura. Maybe the beef in idea has a stronger beef flavour than in Kawamura, but I think wagyu is not just about the flavour but also the appreciation of the mixture of fat and meat.
I would say it’s still a nice place but I don’t think it worth paying 25,000 yen for it.
