MEIJIJINGUMAE: Brown Horse Cowboy Cuisine... incredibly disappointing Curry lunch. Where are the Tacos & Burritos!?

I'm a huge Taco fan and when I saw this Chili Burritos and Taco's sign I just had to get me some.

Looked a the menu and all they had was curry... dang... what happened to the Tacos?  Anyways I'm not a fan of paying 1,000yen for curry so was hoping for the best with my Butter Chicken Curry lunch.

1,000yen... no drink... no dessert... I'm soooo sure the cost to make this was like 150yen.
It tasted boring, rice was too mediocre and it didn't come with a drink... just tap water.

Large L shaped counter seating with lots of interesting decorations to view.

Cozy sofa seating...

Seems in the evenings they serve more Mexican selections but the attraction seems like all you can eat bbq meat and drinks set for 3.980yen  

Yeah thats right... please please don't venture into this place during lunch for their completely overpriced boring curry's.  Will update if I ever try their dinner menu.

SHIBUYA: Very interestingly hidden Chopstick Cafe Shirubei a little trek from Shibuya Station... fun times.

This night I followed a few pilots, cabin attendants and visitors from Australia into a very underpopulated part of Shibuya thru a tiny maze into Shirubei.

Specials for February 22nd.

We ordered several dishes but they were rather average at best.  I think the main selling point here is the cozy interior and Japanesy experience.

Fresh saba fish before it gets torched...

Overall the food that we ordered was very mediocre at best but I think the cool part was getting to the restaurant and the interesting interior.

YOTSUYA: YELP at Siddique Palace for some amazing belly dancing and incredibly delicious instant Butter Chicken and Lamb Curry!

This night our amazing YELP Tokyo Community Manager Rika set up the perfect event with a great Belly Dance team from the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies and instant curry straight out of little boxes~... the best instant I've ever tasted!

The night was so incredibly windy and cold!  Proud Yelp sign laid out on the steps...

Counter seating area for 8.

The owner doing a bit of MC.  Yelps official photographer... He brought along his Canon 5D and brand new Canon 7D Mark II with a 24-70mm lens.  

I met a fellow Elite this night.. Mr. Toshi in Blue.  One of the best thing about these events is that you will meet so many great people who are so social and if you continue to attend the friendly regulars are always there.

The beautiful and talented belly dancers from TUFS Belly Dance Club
東京外国語大学 ベリーダンスクラブ.  I've watched belly dancers thru the years but honestly the first time I really enjoyed all the different performances.  Spot on super.

26min video taken with my little Sony HDR-AS10 Action Cam.
Lots of great performances!

With the capacity of this restaurant at 92 and having 140 Yelpers I waited until the very end when the line died down before giving food a try.  The butter chicken was so deep and rich... yum!

Lamb curry was also incredibly tasty.

And so this is where we all found out that the curry being served was instant box curry!  Definitely a fan but being instant we weren't exposed to the authentic food that this restaurant actually makes... a bit unfortunate. 

If you aren't a Yelper please download the app and begin!  You won't find a better group of Community Managers, Elites and super friendly people who all love food.

The final dance with Yelpers

I leave you with a 2015 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible. Dealership located on the same block as Siddique Palace.
