AZABU JUBAN: Torikizoku Yakitori... franchise prices up fr18yen to 298 yen as of Oct. 2017! Still a great value and busy.

Brand new menu's with new pricing!

I've always been a fan of Torikizoku and should have purchased some of the stock... up over 300% in 2 years.... ugh.




Free endless refill cabbage... always a good choice.

Look at the picture of the beef sticks... looks like 4 pieces per skewer.

But we this is what arrived... oh my.... not as pictured.

Fish eye shot with the boys.

I bought a new Fisheye VCL-ECF2 Converter for my Sony NEX-C3!  





This Sony fisheye is great... GOPRO wide range but with a huge APS-C sensor.


Always go for the seasoned rice with chicken and veggies.



Towards the end of the night we started chatting up the couple next to us.  Its quite amazing that some Japanese people are fully bilingual... the girl went to high school in New York.





Overall the small 18 yen price increase in the menu won't make much of a dent to your wallet... lots of families, couples and younger crowd this night.

EBISU: Fuji Soba Franchise for a quick and budget friendly Japanese dinner... curry and noodle set.

If ever lost in Tokyo and unsure about Japanese menu's at Izakaya's then Fuji soba is a great spot to check out... Menu items are all displayed and numbered.






Curry and Japanese Soba Noodle set..

Hand your ticket to the friendly chef and when its ready just go back to the counter to pick up your tray.



Lots of topping options for you.





Rarely do I see a lady chef at these franchises but she was so friendly.  This franchise is scattered around Tokyo so give it a try!

KOKUSAITENJIJOSEIMON (TOKYO BIG SIGHT): Tyoujukan Korean Restaurant for a full course dinner.

My boss always likes to take us out to dinner after exhibiting at Tokyo Big Sight tradeshows  Today I picked this Korean spot for dinner and drinks.  

All you can drink nomihoudai menu... normally 90 minutes but used Tabelog's coupon to extend it by 30 minutes.  



Enjoyed this... lots of seasoned veggies and kimchee


The waiter cuts up the pork samgyopsal and cooks it for ya... easy breezy. 


Korean pancake... yum

Motsunabe with lots of Tofu

Seasoned fresh salmon... I was never a fan of raw salmon.

Of course I had to have some sweet Korean makkoli

Then to close egg, rice and seaweed are mixed into the remaining stew soup.




Yum! 

Overall there are such limited selections in the Tokyo Big Sight area and most of the restaurants aren't very good... but totally recommend this Korean place!  Service is a bit slow so keep ordering drinks before you finish your current one.

Rarely have a chance to watch Projection Mapping but got lucky this night after the trade show.  Shot using my Sony RX100.
