Beef Salad

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

Soba Nippon created this star item on its menu, beef salad. The salad is a regular iceberg lettuce, shredded red cabbage and carrot salad with a ponzu-based dressing. What’s remarkable are the thin slices of seared beef prime rib that sit on top of the salad. Dressed with sesame seeds, the slices of beef are still slightly warm, and upon first bite are so tender that they almost melt in your mouth. The cut of the meat is so scrumptious and juicy, laced with just the right amount of fat. It’s one of those things that I eat with my eyes closed in disbelief, while savoring every bite. As the Japanese say, “Umai!” (“Excellent!”)
