Halal Wagyu beef course for Muslims is back at Japanese restaurant GONPACHI

GONPACHI, the famous Japanese restaurant chain favoured by international celebrities operated by Global Dining Inc., is bringing back its Muslim-friendly menus with a new Halal Wagyu beef course. It is available starting 14 October for the first time in almost three years.

GONPACHI is famous for its carefully selected Japanese dishes, including skewers carefully grilled over binchotan*1 and freshly fried tempura.
This creative Japanese restaurant made headlines in February 2002 when PM Junichiro Koizumi and US President George W. Bush (both at the time) used the restaurant for an ‘izakaya’ (Japanese-style pub) meeting. As of October 2022, it has seven restaurants in Japan with three overseas franchises (Hong Kong, Dubai and Shanghai).

Halal Shiretoko-Beef Steak Course/21,780 yen (tax incl.)

The new Halal Shiretoko Beef Course is a set meal course with steak made from Halal-certified Shiretoko Beef, a high-quality Japanese black cattle breed. The restaurant offers creative Japanese cuisine with a unique twist on WASHOKU (Japanese Food) in a nostalgic ambience of good old Japan. WASHOKU is also registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

If you want to try this halal course, make sure to book at least 3 business days before your restaurant visit
