SHIBUYA: Late night stop at KINDENMARU Ramen... very lowly ranked but oh well it was very late.

Its always not the greatest idea just to walk into any ramen shop but it was very late and Kindenmaru happened to be on our way to Shibuya station.

Lots of choices all pictured.






I also ordered a 100yen Kaitama (noodle refill).

And here they are... 






I had a view of the outside from where I was sitting and noticed this Shibuya girl with light blue hair.

I really can't say much for the ramen... it was just very average.

SHIBUYA: Good Beer Faucets... 40 craft beers on tap, generously spacious interior and the friendliest staff ever~

Got an invite to meet up in Shibuya and little did I know it would be at a new discovery with some amazing craft beers on tap!  I really need to start visiting more micro beer bars.

These photo's of the interior were taken at closing time so there are no people but there were a few foreigners, some college girls, a few couples and some dudes.




I managed to squeeze in my 1st order a few minutes before 8pm Happy Hour ended.... 200yen off all beers!  This Bruery Mischief was sooooo great.  Has the country of origin and the color of the beer on the menu so easy easy without having to ask tons of questions.

My 2nd Beer... Rogue Farms 7 Hop IPA!  Another great selection...

My favorite dish of the entire evening... Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce! Couldn't stop and ordered 3 dishes of this tasty tasty tasty.

Our most awesome waitress Marie from the US.  

I highly suggest ordering a beer that's served in a Tulip Glass~

Beer #3 and I almost had seconds... Bombshell Blonde in a Tulip Glass.




I'm not too sure about the wine selection... seemed a bit limited.




And nearly 4 hours later our bill for 5 people came out to 33,110 yen (USD330).  The pints of the good stuff were 1,300 yen each but they also served some in the 700yen range.  It was just too hard to stop drinking all these great beers thus the chunky bill.


I'll definitely be back again for sure... Oh the owner is Japanese (they just opened up another branch in Fukuoka) and the manager is an Israeli guy but he wasn't in tonight.

And I leave you with a very nice Bentley Continental GT spotting in Shibuya.

TOKYO: MATSUYA Beef Bowl Franchise for a friendly 330yen Curry Rice and Miso soup combo~


Walked past Matsuya and noticed a pic of curry... and in the details it came with a bowl of Miso Soup all for a very reasonable 330yen.


Regular size and Large size options... no toppings for this selection.
If you like toppings check out the menu here:


One man operation...

Lots of great salad dressings.

They serve Breakfast too... a rare sight in Tokyo.

Curry had a nice hint of spice and it wasn't watery... they must have stewed vegetables inside because there were thick portions in the curry.  Hit the spot.





Matsuya's are located all over Japan so if you spot one why not give it a try.
