I went on the wrong freeway this morning and ended up in Costa Mesa.
On my way back to the 405, I passed by Mitsuwa Marketplace.
I haven’t been to their food court for quite some time, and really miss the grilled beef tongue at Gyutan Tsukasa.
I guess it’s meant to be!
Food court just opened at 11 am, and it was already filled with people.
After ordering the to-go bento, I watched the chef making my grilled beef tongue through the window.
There’s an article from OC Weekly praising the food at Gyutan Tsukasa.
I got two grilled beef tongue bento. It’s Dr. P’s first time trying this place.
Very simple bento box. There are 8 pieces of grilled beef tongue, pickled vegetables,
seasoned green onion (to eat with beef tongue), and rice.
Simple, and absolutely delicious. The beef tongue was grilled perfectly.
It was thick and tender, and just lightly seasoned with salt.
Dr. P was very impressed. He said this is the best beef tongue he’s ever had.
The only thing I didn’t like about this place is that it’s cash only.
Glad I had some cash on me today.
