This cozy restaurant located about 15 minutes from central Takamatsu is a true gem. With three private rooms and several tables in the main space, owner-chef Mori has created a simple, welcoming atmosphere that allows diners to focus on the main attraction: Olive-fed Wagyu. Mori purchases the entire cow from local ranchers; two per month on average, and handles the butchering, curing, and storage onsite. Lunch offers several sets at very reasonable prices, including OFW served in a variety of ways and accompanied by soup, rice, and salad. But it’s the dinner menu that really shines thanks to the courses including small dishes served prior to the presentation of the succulent OFW, lightly grilled and served with a hot stone on which diners may place each slice for additional cooking.

As of early November 2017, Mori is opening a second restaurant just behind Ichi-go that will be emphasize traditional Japanese architecture and design. Available by reservation only, it will feature kaiseki dining with the focus remaining on OFW.
