You’ll find this upscale steakhouse at 88 Marketplace, a very large shopping complex just west of Chinatown. Inspired by Korean BBQ, each table at Holu has a grill where the server (or you, if you like throwing caution to the wind and/or are a control freak) cooks your steak. And the main reason we like this place is the incredible quality of the meat.

Most of it is aged in-house (you can say hi to the impressive selection displayed in the window while you have a drink at the bar), with everything from ribeye and zabuton, to wagyu tongue and A5 Japanese Kobe. It comes with a portion of everything, along with some banchan-style sides, and a dessert. Each person is provided with some sea salt and a “secret recipe” fruit sauce (ingredients appear to be “deliciousness”) that complement the meat perfectly.
