GAIENMAE: Canton Meisai Tomitoku. A chinese restaurant owned by a famous chef! Nice lunch set.

In the shadows of my office building is a spot with restaurants in a very inconvenient location thats always quite deserted... I never know how they can be profitable.

Photo of the famous chef.

You only have 1 lunch option but if 2 or more people order then different lunch options are available... 

Lucky so score the only private room for 6

The lunch special!  The seasoning was so heavy... loved it. 

If you are between Aoyama Ichome and Gaienmae you can check this area out.  There is a great free gallery in this complex also with rotating exhibitions.  

Occasionally the gallery displays works by art students and I had to purchase this wonderful painting of a dog... hanging in my room.

SAKURADAI: 7 years later Akimoto-Ya Yakitori is awesome! WOW... lots of regulars. (SONY RX100)

OK! I'm so tired of always going to budget Torikizoku Yakitori that had to him up a friend who lived near Sakuradai Station... Akimoto-ya on a Sunday at 5pm and it was nearly a full house.

Scored 2 counter seats with a great view of the yakitori grill and a little spot next to the grill where all the pre-cooked items were laid out.  

Customer orders right in front of us..  had to point to the avocado wrapped in bacon.


The owner and chef Miura-san.  Chilled nihon shu.

Not too much to say but everything was sooooo delicious... 2 hours, lots of nihon shu and yakitori for almost JPY 10,000... gotta splurge on chicken once in a while. 

Shop: Akimoto-Ya Sakuradai Branch
