KAMIYACHO: Honey Baked Yam x YELP... Cozy early Christmas gathering~

Invited to enjoy a little Ham baking session at Honey Baked Ham's cozy little restaurant in Kamiyacho... with CEO and Chef Mr. Paul.

Ham Cheese Bread!  Little sandwiches for me!

 Speech and Cezar Salad tutorial time!

The perfect cesar salad recipe

Home made sangria

Trading Christmas gifts with Yelpers... scored a little balloon car from the president of Yelp Japan Tomo-san... unfortunately I had to leave early for a bday party and forgot my gift! Ugh...

Definitely the highlight of the evening was the glazing of this huge piece of Ham!

I really enjoyed this little cozy restaurant... perfect for a date or if you are a lone diner there is counter seating with a perfect view of the fully visible kitchen and Blue Moon on tap!

HARAJUKU/OMOTESANO: Seiko-En Yakiniku! Hawaiian Style with so many celeb sightings... meh~

AKB48 Mayuyu greeted me at the entrance...

This felt so much like an restaurant in Hawaii... There is a square bartender bar area in the back that should definitely transition into a standing bar at night.  This restaurant was incredibly spacious and nearly smoke free!

More celebs!  In the end I realized that this restaurant must be connected to the TV industry... I've never seen so many celeb pics at any other restaurant in Tokyo.

All you can eat menu! We went for the Premium Course 3,880yen... so many choices!

90min 1,500yen All You Can Drink menu if u like.

For the tabehoudai this selection automatically arrives... Cow tongue, pork slices, and 3 beef selections but...

This special beef that is not on the menu because of its high quality was like eating a rubber slippah!  We made sure to ask the waiter what it was in order to stay faaaaar away from it.

I loved this all you can eat Salad Bar!  Especially the Japanese dressing, sesame seed dressing and Korean choregi spicy sauce.

We were only allowed to order this one tiny plate of Yukke (raw seasoned beef)... definitely my favorite dish of the night. 

Nearly smokeless grill!

You can also order spicy ramen noodles... but it was incredibly hot and very sure it was just the 100yen  instant Samyan Ramen.

They have Long Board! Big Wave!

There were alot of young ladies, couples and tourists dining this evening.  The location is very convenient and atmosphere super relaxing but as for the Tabehoudai food it was simply mediocre at best.  I won't be back but if you order off the normal menu there are very premium grade meats at a hefty price.

YOYOGI: Burgers Base... its like they used 2 small pizzas as buns for this Special "JUMBO" Hamburger!

I had a morning meeting near Yoyogi Station and Burger's Base along the way... so just had to check out this 2 floor burger spot that sits along a busy rail crossing at Yoyogi Station.

I was so happy to see a Chili Burger in the menu!

1st floor has 3 little tables for 2 and the same for the 2nd floor but smoking was allowed up there... small space with smokers, nah no thanks.

For an additional 100yen you get a drink... Ginger Ale for me!

They ran out of buns for the Chili burger so asked for the shops recommended choice... the Sasebo Burger size JUMBO!  I just figured it would have a big beef patty and some extra toppings.  Nope the buns were large Frisbee's and it weighted so much!

Its bigger than my iPhone 5!

Eggs, Cheddar Cheese, Bacon and a beef patty... the volume was massive and it wasn't too bad.  But its my very first time to actually slow down halfway thru my burger.  I seriously was considering a doggy-bag.

"Lucky Denver" by Mint on the BGM... alot of nice song from the 80's and 90's.  The burger chef looked kinda like a rocker maybe thats why the music.

After 3pm starts the all you can drink plan A for 1,000yen with 1 beer and all the mixed drinks or Plan B 1,500yen with all the beers and alcohol you can drink for 90 minutes.  The only catch is you need to order one food item!  

Super friendly waiter, interested rocker chef and a perfect view of people crossing the tracks... I think I will be back one day soon for the 1,000 yen all you can drink plan plus the chili burger.
