Ninokichi was founded in 1981 in Fukuchiyama, where a meat-eating culture has taken root. Currently, the restaurant is run by its second generation owner, Mr. Shinya Otsuki, and it's attracted attention for its French-based meat dishes, particular about their quality.
Quality is the top priority for beef used at Ninokichi. Beef here is sourced from far and wide, from local sources to as far as Kyushu in southern Japan, all to carefully select the best ingredients attainable at the time. The chef oversees most of the process, from aging to cutting, ensuring nothing gets overlooked in the pursuit of the best taste. Furthermore, as you can see by the beautiful presentation of the meat dishes here, Ninokichi is defined by the creative presentations of Mr. Otsuki, with his background in French cuisine. Unique menu items have included dishes such as smoked deer and bagna càuda dip, which many customers have enjoyed paired with wine. At Ninokichi, you're sure to find some surprising deliciousness in the mix of grilled meat and French-style cuisine.
