Located in the East zone on Daiya-gai, Satou is a steakhouse and meat shop that serves the top quality beef from Matsuzaka. Satou is especially popular for its menchi katsu (メンチカツ), a deep fried meet ball of Matsuzaka ground beef and chopped onions. Because Satou's menchi katsu provides a way to taste Matsuzaka's beef at a very low price, a long procession of people, waiting to take out menchi katsu, forms daily in front of the store.
The steakhouse on the second floor is small with limited seating. If you like to dine at the steakhouse, find the stairs on the west side of the shop behind the meat shop, and go up to the second floor.
A long waiting line forms for menchi katsu at the meat shop. The line forms even slightly before the opening hour along the street between the West and East zones toward Isetan Department Store. There are usually two lines. A shorter line is usually for buying other items such as croquettes.
Satou is in a two-story building. The first floor is a meat shop, where it sells its top quality meats and other fried meat balls as takeouts. The second floor is its steakhouse. As one of the main attraction in Kichijoji, Satou has drawn many locals and visitors outside the town. The restaurant was also featured in a Japanese movie.
