AKASAKA MITSUKE: Hitori Shabu Shabu Matsugoro BACK for their amazing value 980 yen Wagyu Lunch! (Sony RX100)

Did a short staycation in the same building as Hitori Shabu Shabu Matsugoro and of course I couldn`t resist visiting for lunch!  If in the Akasaka area you gotta check out The Best Western Hotel Fino Tokyo Akasaka  ... brand new and incredibly priced due to Coronavirus.

Lunch Menu... but just have my eye on one item!

80 grams of sliced Wagyu Beef for only 980 yen!  Limited to 30 a day. 

You can either choose ponzu or sesame sauce with spicy oil.

Plus lunch includes Ramen Noodles!

Here it is!  All this for only 980 yen!

Every slice of the wagyu beef was butterly tender... it was just sooo good. 

My view of the large oval counter. 

The sesame goma sauce was a bit sweet on this day compared to my previous dinner visit.

When you are ready for ramen just let the staff know.   They will bring out a bowl with ramen seasoning inside and put 7-8 scoups of the shabu shabu water into the bowl.  

Boil the noodles in the hotpot for 2-3 minutes then transfer to the bowl. 

To close with ramen is wonderful.

Lots of seasoning dips ready for the rush crowd. 

Meat is sliced to order... view of the large metal slicer. 

Just fabulous lunch for only 980 yen.  This is just a total must go!

AKASAKA: Saizeriya Italian Franchise... cheap and cheap and just plain bad. Just go for the wine and pasta. (Sony RX100)

I was just craving 1 thing at Saizeriya and they no longer carry it! The Spaghetti Vongole was just soooo satisfying.  So I went for the Penne Arriabiata to find out it was sold out.  UGH!

300 yen glass of beer in a very light plastic mug... Are we at a picnic BBQ?

Bottle Wines are insanely cheap... definitely drink a few if you are a wine lover. 

So went for this delicious looking Buffalo Mozzarella Pizza!

But got kind of an oval shaped supermarket quality pizza... ugh.

This hamburger steak with cheese and tomato sauce looked yum!

But this arrived and a few bites I was done.  Nothing was good here.

No longer have tabasco but the home made hot sauce was nice. 

What looked like plastic files taped without care to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (Covid19).  The partitions were just caked with dust... not 2 sh@ts given for cleanliness.  

Just couldn`t eat the hamburger dish...  tasted like microwave TV dinner or a really bad domestic flight meal.  

Overall this location is a definite NO unless you go for the pasta.  When in foodie town Akasaka avoid at all costs and explore all the delicious restaurants.
