EBISU: Shuichi Curry Dipping Noodles... was a late late laaaate night so don't quite remember. Highly ranked on Tabelog!

My very first adventure into Curry Ramen... Curry Udon is a very familiar sighting in Japan.

Yup this was 3am on a late Saturday night...or should I say Sunday.

No no... I had enough sake for the night.

Just an FYI post as I don't remember how it tasted even though it was last night.
But its highly ranked by Japan foodies on Tabelog.

OMOTESANDO: Tori-Maru for some friendly Yakitori with friendly customers~... then off to NARF on the 3rd floor.

I met the owner of Torimaru at a Yelp event a few months back (blonde guy with red shades) and finally had a chance to give it a try.

1st floor counter seating and tables were all full... so headed up to the 2nd floor.

Entire section with just us and the 3 ladies in the back.

Out with Dentist Koji

These chicken wings were so super juicy and of course I had to order my chicken tails.

At around 9pm a gang of 20 salarymen took over most of the floor... no ladies :(

So we were asked to move next to these ladies and eventually joined their dinner party.

The bartender

In Japan its good to close with some chicken soup at a Yakitori spot.

Then of course we head to the 3rd floor NARF for some beers.  Nanako on the DJ and DJ Honda also stopped by to check out the bar.  Its nice to be able to start and close out the night at 1 building... if you are in the area give Torimaru a try then visit NARF!

June 2016... I'm here for date night.

HARAJUKU/KITA-SANDO: American Club House Hi Daddy for a wonderful Roast Beef lunch and 80's on the BGM!

Yesterday I spotted a very trendy fashionable group of people exiting American Club House and thought it was time to give this basement establishment a try.

Located right across from BAPE Nigo's Human Made shop.

Daily special Chicken Sauté with Curry Cream Sauce.  Also spare ribs, Japanese style sirloin steak, sea food curry, beef curry, tuna and tomato pasta and the one I got... Plate Lunch with Roast Beef!

House wines

The menu... drinks are 150yen extra

2 proper elderly chefs.  

Interior was very cozy.

Can see the tops of the chefs cap over the counter.

Thats my plate.   Hot butter fresh bread, miso soup, cabbage with Japanese dressing, 2 cuts of sweet egg, a little potato salad and some tender roast beef.

When I stepped in I heard Pet Shop Boys!... then Phil Collins - Don't Lose My Number, then Gloria Estefan, Prince... full on 80's.  Rare BGM in Tokyo and very nice.

I arrived at their 11:45 open and had the entire place to my self but at arond 12:10pm the crowd started flowing in and sounds of people asking for ashtrays began.  I'm not a fan of smokers during lunch so if you want to give it a try I suggest avoiding the peak lunch hour between 12-1pm.
But I'll be back to give the spare ribs a try!
