Late night dinner in Shirokane-Takanawa (just one stop from Azabu Juban) and what better meal to warm us up during a very cold Tokyo night...
When you step inside the smell of Yakiniku is quite overwhelming... definitely not a date spot or a place you want to hit up first before heading out for drinks... unless u don't mind smellin like smokey beef.
Honestly... this was the highlight of the entire dinner... and its was free. Yeah, those little dishes Korean restaurants provide you with but in this case it was just a single dish of seasoned bean sprouts. Tasty tasty~.
Hot barley tea... hit the spot.
Special sauce for the ....
...1,300yen Potato-Chjimi... chopped up potatoes baked with flour about the size of my hand... hmm... hmm... 1,300yen... hmm.... I can buy a sack of potatoes for 130yen at the supermarket... hmm...
Please goto 1:00min mark for a very nice "Sack of Potatoes" reference :)
Next came the 1,100yen Tofu-Chige Soup... fairly bland and very little soup... zzz...
At the end of the meal the waitress will offer Vanilla or Green Tea ice cream that's included with everyone's meal. I have to say hands down the service from all the staff was excellent... smiles, friendly and prompt.
I can only assume that looking around most of the customers were enjoying Yakiniku so perhaps our choices and my review doesn't truly reflect how good this restaurant might be... it has a respectable foodie ranking of 3.40 on Tabelog so someone really enjoyed their meal... but unfortunately not me.
