ROPPONGI: Menya Musashi Kosho... My favorite HK based Japanese foodie post. Definitely on another level! (SONY RX100)

My  favorite Instagram foodie and quite spot on photographer based out of Hong Kong.  Most of her adventures are another level but on her recent visit to Tokyo she near my office. Had to visit her ramen shop post in Roppongi! @furellie #furellie 

L shaped counter and must have had at least 50% Southeast Asian diners this night. 

This was when we entered at 9:20pm but before my ramen came out there was a line outside.

The push button system here is interesting. The most expensive items are pictured on the top row while most Japanese ramen spots will put the least expensive but most recommended item on the top left.  This was the first time I paid 1,200 yen for a bowl of ramen.  Thinking back.. I went to a Musashi in Shinjuku back in 2010 that was 1,000 yen! Same owner?

3 guys on deck...

I think you can level up your noodles all the way to 1 kilograms! Phew.

yeah this ramen was a beauty... The pork was nicely grilled, the noodles perfectly think & chewy, the soup delicious.   Honestly if you had to have just 1 bowl of ramen please skip Ippudo and Ichiran. OR if you are up for and adventure at a budget 600-700 yen price range thats hella delicious check out Jiro.

I think this seasoned semi-boiled egg was an additional 100 yen.

Probably my first photo of the AC system in any restaurant.. enjoy!

Will be back for their dipping noodles tsukemen soon.

And of course when in Roppongi you will always spot supercars.... Lamborghini Aventador S?

ROPPONGI: Yatai-ya Hakata Gekijo Restaurant... wow! The biggest cheapest H-Balls ever, great gyoza and awesome staff! A FAN!! (SONY RX100)

Good friend came back from Davos then Germany then somewhere else... It had been a while since we hit up Roppongi so went to Havana Cafe for 1 happy hour drink then decided to wander until we found something new.  Sooooo glad we spotted this fairly new March 2018 open Izakaya.

Nice mix of all kinds of age ranges and with a few foreigners at the counter.

But along with being a super fan of gyoza (pot stickers) I am a suuuper fan of huge drinks at a great value and this Dodeka (super massive) whiskey hi-ball was spot on my style.  I have NEVER seen such a huge glass for only 580 yen.  Normally these go for 1,000 - 1,200 yen.

This was the automatic appetizer called Otoshi in Japanese.  Has little bits of Konbu or seasoned seaweed I think... free refills! Wow I have never seen a restaurant in Japan that serves free Otoshi refills.

Sauces for gyoza but then thre was one little glass bottle with yellow pills!

OMG! Free Ukon!  This is turmeric that helps the liver and hangovers.

Seasoned boiled quail eggs.

Cucumbers with umeboshi sauce.

Famous folks left a few signatures.

The gyoza took about 45 minutes to arrive... guess they had a big influx of orders.

If you are a lone diner or want a view of the chef in action definitely hit up the counter seat!

Fried oysters... crispy on the outside and yum

Counter seating had these red seats but the other tables used yellow bottle beer cases with a little flat cushion... probably to assist in customer turnover.  But the waitress said our limit was 2 hours.

Free Kitkat service to close out the dinner.

They also have an app... think I may have gotten a discount by downloading this but after 3 of their 580 Dekka-Hiballs I can't quite remember.

When in Roppongi this place is a must!  I will definitely be back their huge drinks, super variety food menu but most of all the staff was sooooo attentive.  GO GO GO! Its just a few seconds from Hard Rock Cafe.
