If you're familiar with Halal Wagyu Yakiniku Panga in Taito City, the restaurant surprised us with a second outlet named Halal Wagyu Dining Panga 585
! Opened in April 2019, this halal-certified wagyu steakhouse is tucked away in Marugoto Nippon, a shopping complex filled with fresh produce, beauty products and traditional handicrafts (shopaholics, there's nothing like killing two birds with one stone ?).
Come with a huge appetite because Halal Wagyu Dining Panga 585 has a menu of mouthwatering selections ? You might be tempted to enjoy sukiyaki or roast beef rice bowl for lunch, but their top-grade wagyu is not to be missed!
Staying true to its name, the restaurant serves the exquisite A5 wagyu, which is the highest grade in the Japanese wagyu beef grading system. Known for its beautiful marbling and texture, it won't be difficult to imagine the wagyu's tender and buttery flavours playing with your tastebuds ?

Why will the restaurant be opened for only 585 days? Well, this wagyu steakhouse is meant to serve as a pop-up experience for Muslim travellers to savour melt-in-your-mouth wagyu in Tokyo. At the time of writing, the restaurant may relocate to a new location after 585 days, but their future is still up in the air. If you need to mark your calendar, this restaurant is estimated to open from now until 2 December 2020.
After you've cleared the last piece of wagyu, make the most of your day by exploring the best of Asakusa! You can visit the Senso-ji temple, ride a retro roller coaster and snap a photo of Japan's tallest tower ? Let our Muslim-friendly guide to Tokyo's Asakusa neighbourhood
