Shizuoka Specialty “Hamburg Steak Restaurant Sawayaka”:Great Japanese Family Restaurant


When you hear the word “Shizuoka”, what do you think of?

Shizuoka prefecture in Japan is famous for green tea, Mount Fuji, and eel. Of course, they are great, but I want you to know a hamburg steak restaurant “Sawayaka”.

The hamburg of Sawayaka can only be enjoyed in Shizuoka prefecture.


Sawayaka is very particular about taste and quality of meat. We can taste hamburg steak cooked medium rare, because the meat is very fresh.
Yaizu, Shizuoka
They serve many kinds of dishes, but most popular food is “Genkotsu hamburg steak”. The Japanese word “Genkotsu” means “fist”.

Also, “Onigiri hamburg steak” is popular food too.

You can choose demi-glace sauce or onion sauce for hamburg steak, and the onion sauce is much better than demi-glace sauce.

In addition, I recommend you eat the hamburg steak only with salt and pepper at first bite. The salt and pepper are placed on each table.


“Genkotsu hamburg steak” and “Onigiri hamburg steak” are cooked medium rare, so it’s not good for kids.

Fortunately, Sawayaka has many kinds of kids food that includes baby food and allergy-friendly food.
