EBISU: Blacows... lunch soooo delicious on the company tab! Otherwise CP is rather low. (Canon G7X)

Business lunch and we headed to Blacows for their rather poor cost performance burgers!

Most burger spots in Tokyo offer a lunch special that includes a burger, drink and salad for about 1,000 yen but Blacows is ala carte all the way... and its VERY pricey.  BUT this day I didn't have to worry about pulling out my wallet.

For an additional 500 yen you can get a very tasty salad and drink.

My colleagues Teriyaki burger... a pass for me.  Teriyaki seems so USA.

OK! I ordered the limited special Hokkaido Laclette Cheese Burger with an extra Avocado topping (additional 200 yen).  No cheese in sight yet...

Then the waiter arrives with a hot plate full of melty cheese... 

Oh my goodness... this cheese was so incredibly flavorful! YUM!!

Client ordered a salad but it was massive... looked great.

Brought along my Canon G7X but the photos are so soft... hmm... $400 you are totally not satisfying my photography needs. 

If you don't have to worry about a reasonably priced burger then you gotta head on over to Blacows that even has a $40 one pond (pound) burger that takes 30 minutes to prepare.

HIGASHI NAKANO: Oomori-ken Chinese restaurant for a gyoza set... just one elderly chef.

Always welcome these photos... but I'm a huge gyoza fan so just went for that.

Free wifi and no smoking... my kinda place.

I think this might have been 500 yen?  Honestly this was a long night so I really can't comment too much on the texture of the gyoza but tabelog foodies give it a very respectable 3.56 points.

Located just near the tiny police koban box...

NAKANO: Juke 80's Bar... the Western one! No entrance fee, one coin drinks and select 80s music yourself.

Watched an episode of Why are you in Japan TV show and they were exploring Nakano... following foreigners into bars and this was a spot they visited. 

Have a big catalog of songs and just select your favorites... no charge.

Bartender was super friendly... if you need a quick spot for a few drinks and blast to the past you gotta go.  Actually went on a Saturday and about 80% foreigners... then on Sunday at a super early 7pm with just a few Japanese folks.
