Restaurant Monn, Sasebo (れすとらん 門 佐世保), Nagasaki, Kyushu

 This restaurant made my basis of the European foods. They are running the restaurant for more than thirty years and keeping very classical French style on their dishes with Japanese essence. They raised a restaurant on the name, but we feel very casual atmosphere like bistro in the hall. The restaurant is one of the oldest one in Sasebo. They opened the traditional and homely atmosphere restaurant on 1955.
 The former hall, they moved from building in front of the main station of Sasebo, is very warm and decorated with brown orange brickes. The capacity of main dining room had been for ten persons.
 The special cuisine of this restaurant is Tataki(タタキ) and beef steak. The chef keep using the Goto islands or Ikitsuki or Hirado islands Wagu beaf, the western islands of Nagasaki prefecture. The beef from these islands, especially in Ikitsuki and Hirado were tasty like Angus beef from Scotland and melted on your tongue like other Japanese wagu beef. The farm in Hirado and Ikitsuki island are located in the mountains face to the small bays in the islands. The sea wind with salt and grass with strong winds from the sea made them like Angus beef.

 The Tataki is like the roast beef, but roasted just the surface of the block and serve as thin slice like two to three millimetre covered with tiny sliced Negi. The source was based from the soy source with onion and garlic.

The best Chateau briand

On my teenage, I called them the Tataki and curry (curry and rice is also the cuisine but very hot and spicy, I loved) for take away. But in these days, the law is very strict to serve the raw meat in Japan, it is very difficult to order the tataki for take away. You can take away the curry source.
If you would like to taste the Chateau briand , from the very rare in beef, please call them for reservation. The staff may communicate in only Japanese, but please try.
