Aoyama-gaien

Discovered a new Yakiniku restaurant last weekend located in Aoyama/Gaienmae. Nice fancy romantic atmosphere, good meat, I’d be honest here – The service wasn’t the best. But good cost performance wise and the famous ‘Narisawa’s Bees Bar is just next door for you to enjoy post-dinner cocktails. I would definitely […]

D-29, Omotesando

Discovered a casual but high-quality Yakiniku restaurant called D-29 located in Minami-Aoyama. Don’t be fooled by its casual appearance as the quality of meat is supreme.
