Kagoshima Beef Set from Itacho HK

Kagoshima Beef Set

Here was the Kogoshima beef set from Itacho Sushi at Hong Kong airport. I wasn't quite sure if it would be worthwhile to get Japanese beef while in HK, but this seemed like the most unique thing on the menu. Besides, wasn't it a shop in HK that paid the highest ever price for tuna at Tsukiji not long ago?

Unfortunately, this was a letdown. I was expecting a rich and buttery thing that just slid down my throat. Instead, this was relatively tasteless, making this thing really just raw beef. OK, there were a couple of pieces that were seared with a nice grilled flavor, but otherwise this was pretty forgettable, and not worth the HK$338 (US$41) price. On second thought, maybe it was because I didn't pay enough!
