ROPPONGI: TGIFridays back 1 year later after my annual medical check-up... Free Massive 200 gram burger!

In Japan we have something called Ningen-Doc thats an annual full medical check-up that is paid by employers... fun part is drinking barium swallow testing.

No Chili Burger this year!  Soooo just went for the regular hamburger.



My budget was 1,000 yen.

So tried the Fridays Lunch Hamburger.

Burger in its most basic form.  It really had no flavor at all... this was probably the most boring burger I have had in a long time except for the McD's 100 yen hamburger.


A few bites and it was sooooo dry... 

But as I worked my way into the burger I noticed some parts were a bit juicier.

Overall if you want to get fully stuffed then this burger is for you... but if you prefer something more flavorful then maybe you should visit AS CLASSIC DINER in Roppongi Hills (thats still on my to try list).

AOYAMA ICHOME: Hamaou Minato-Tei for their Nikomi-Hambaguuu (Stewed Hamburger) Lunch. YUM!!

This place has a wonderful steak lunch set but had to go for the other osusume (recommended) item on the menu!  The nihomi-hambaguuuuu




There are 2 items with the red Osusume next to them... the steak I tried previously and the stewed burger.

Lunch set includes salad, soup, rice and the main dish. Think you can get refills on the soup and if you want a bigger portion of rice say "Gohan Oohhmori-Kudasai".

Hugh solid chuck of burger!  It was incredibly meaty.  But I loved the stew with veggies even more.  It kinda tasted like demigras sauce with hints of tomato.   Sooo perfect for cold winters.  

If in Aoyama for lunch you gotta go here!  Just point at the items with the red indicators... you can't go wrong.

Honda Showroom is just around the block so stopped by to see what was on display.  The FK8 Civic Type R racing cars... nice.




And a standard CTR was on display too.


NSX always nice but for the same money I would have to go for a Italian supercar.


One of my favorite bikes... the 250 CC class.
CBR250RR but at a whopping USD $8k... phew.

ROPPONGI: Tetsu Ramen has super thick noodles again for dinner! YEAH!


Ramen Tetsu was always my go-to spot for closing the night in Roppongi but for some reason in 2014 they started only offering thin noodles after 5pm.

Walked by and asked the staff if what kind of noodles they served... and he said Futomen!



Jumbo noodles volume at no cost... 

Counter seating... and table seating. There is also a section in the back that seats 4 per table.




Its been soooo long since I had dipping noodles tsukemen that I forgot to ask for Atsumori where they don't run the noodles thru cold water before serving.  Oh well...


Soup was not as muddy as I remembered.


Fried onion chips for topping.

Overall I'm glad Tetsu decided to return to their original thick noodles.
I will surely be back.


Beautiful Porsche GT3 spotting... want!
