IKEBUKURO: Osteria Sante Massive 250 gram meatball for lunch... Mangiare Italian Meatball!

Right around the corner from Sakura House Hotel in Ikebukuro is an Italian lunch spot that will definitely help you gain a little weight for 1,000 yen!  Waaaaay to generous!

Massive meatball... this is not a hamburger but its just a massive meatball!  With lots of boiled veggies underneath...

EBISU: Taruya Korean for an itsy bitsy samgyeopsal! Just had laugh...

Korean in Ebisu at a place that has been around forever... went with the 4,280yen Manzoku-Course.

The best item of the night was shoyu sesame oil marinated tuna... very similar to Hawaiian Poke.

This is... this place is famous for Samgyeopsal and we got 4 tiny pieces... just had to laugh.  No wonder this place is popular with the ladies... small portions.

Its a very nice cozy Korean restaurant with counter seating, table seating and tatami-mat seating... but I wouldn't go here for the food.  If you like to drink alot then hit up the 3,200yen course and all you can drink menu... and drink alot cause the food ain't all that.

NAKAMEGURO: Kushiwakamaru Revisted after 5 years and still packed and tasty! ENGLISH Menus!! Super Crowded on a Sunday!!!

Automatic Otoshi... little boiled fish on some white raddish.  Don't forget the shoyu!

All the Yakitori and other items are in English!

Interesting mug with all the Japanese prime ministers.

A great view of the chef and counter frig full of items.

Cheesy bacon green pepper was fun.

Chilled nihon-shu in a bamboo cup.

Seafood items too.

Overall had a great time with my date.  Hope to be back sooner but definitely make a reservation or you'll have to wait in line for an open table.  Reservations are good for 2 hours then they ask you to leave... time slots are 5-7, 7-9, 9-11pm I think.
