I really don't know what else to recommend in Akasaka other than Korean food and of course The best Hawaiian Restaurant in Tokyo "Ogo's"
KOKAAN has one of the highest Korean rankings among foodies in the Akasaka so I had to go! Their daily special and brand new on the menu was "Tori Kalbi Teishoku" for 850yen..
Lots of items to choose from. The Yakiniku Salad Teishoku was a huge hit with the ladies having lunch in this place... brought out in a gigantic bowl. But after asking the super kind waitress what she recommended she said go for the Chicken Kalbi Lunch because its very good. Sounds good to me!
Very cool chopsticks... they were very long and pointy and quite fun to use.
There it is! A great value for 850yen.
This was kind of like a beef stew with korean spice... The potatoes and carrots were extremely tender and seasoned, the chicken very tasty and the stew base had a sweet/spicy flavor. It really did taste like home cooking... sooo good.
There seems to be alot of choices for dinner but this was the only page with pics other than the lunch menu so if you go make sure to brush up on the Japanese.
There were quite a few pretty ladies and unusually several foreigners having lunch here... All tatami seating.
I can't remember the last time I saw these cool rubber Korean slippers (used to goto the restroom).... must have been when I was attending Taegu American Elementary School! It was sooo nostalgic.
Lots of magazine coverage
The entrance is very subtle so have an eye out for the 1st floor Yello TODOROKI Ramen Shop. Overall the service was just super friendly, the food sooo good and the atmosphere was sooo comfortable. If you are on the look out for Korean this place is a must in Akasaka!
