Limited in selections for late night ramen we hit up Tsukemen Yasube in Nerima.

Small, Regular, Large "chu-mori" and Extra Large "Oo-mori" were all 720yen. I'm all in for the Oomori!

Fairly crowded for 1:30am!  Wow...

We were all very tired as the night started at 5pm... this is our 4th location of the night.

300yen Ebisu Beers!

My Large "oomori" noodles were massive... phew.  

The tsukemen soup was very light... it didn't cling to the slippery cold noodles very well.

Tried my best but eventually left a bowl full of noodles... this is after sharing some with my friend.

Not my favorite style of Ramen but its nice to close out the night with Ramen.

AZABU JUBAN: AW Kitchen 5-5... don't bother, food was unusually bad.

I just didn't get it... the reviews were so great but the food was such a disappointment

We all went with the 5,000yen dinner and drink course. I should of looked more closely at the menu... 6 appetizers? for real?

Now here we go... for a grand total of 15,000yen (3 guys) we start with a little bit of olives in a garlic olive oil dressing.

Few tiny cut up veggies...

4-5 tiny marinated fish.

The Bagna Cauda veggies were so old and so tiny... where do u find such tiny veggies?

Very soupy bagna cauda dip.

The 2 hour all you can drink menu.

Mashed potatoes...

One carrot! Really... for 3 guys? It was just so silly.

2 types of pasta and the noodles for both were still hard... this chef really sucks.

Anyways after spending 5,000yen each I was truly dissapointed with AW Kitchen 5-5... the food just sucked. There are so many better places in Azabu Juban to spend your money... DO NOT GO HERE!!

EKODA: Oshidori Izakaya for a wonderful Motsu-Nikomi-Teishoku!

I'm huuuuge fan of Motsu-Nikomi and even a bigger fan of reasonably priced food so this menu caught my eye.  570yen for a full Motsu-Nikomi Lunch! I'm there!

This place was incredibly spacious... some tables but mostly floor seating.

I later looked at this menu and noticed they have Sashimi Teishoku for 780yen!  The guy next to ordered it and wow there was so much fish... On my list for next week!

Arrived fairly quickly.

This was just soooo tasty with a nice spicy kick.  Super tender pieces of Motsu YUM!!

Long table seating...

Interesting crowd.  Elderly, young couples, college guys and families. Everyone loves this place.

Featured on Sakaba TV show where this guy goes into great Japanese restaurants to eat and drink and chat with the customers.

Seasonal Japanese Flowers... all over town.  I'll be back Oshidori!
