The Japanese rock garden brings its owner a sense of peace, not unlike the beef garden, where owners rake through spare ribs to reflect on life's most savory morsels. Savor tasty Far East fare and create a tranquil tummy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Japanese barbecue and drinks at Yagyu Yakiniku on West Spring Mountain Road. Known for serving a variety of prime grade cuts of beef, Yagyu Yakiniku presents diners a high-quality traditional Japanese-barbecue experience. Their meat library includes volumes of Kobe, Kalibi (prime boneless short ribs), and Rosu (prime rib eye), alongside various pork, chicken, and seafood anthologies. Comfy booths surround combination charcoal and gas grills at the center of each tables; each grill fires up the customer's choice of temperature, whether they prefer the feeling of a warm hug to the scalding wrath of a pottery kiln that can't remember its email password. After cooking freshly cut proteins to their liking, diners can then douse their comestibles in two dipping sauces. Meanwhile, draft beers are served at a chilly 29 degrees, transforming throats into icy high-speed food chutes for maximum efficiency when downing edible bobsleds of tangy barbecue.
- We actually ordered a meal that was not on the menu, but had a selection of different meats. The meat was absolutely perfect and tender, and better since we cooked it to our liking. There were three different kinds of meats. – E P., Yelp
