SHINANOMACHI: Forest Beer Garden... outdoor all you can eat BBQ and self serve open bar!

Hot Tokyo summers require a visit to all you can eat yakiniku bbq locations.

All you can eat menu... plus drinks.

Budweiser on tap! YEAH! Because there aren't many Bud fans in Japan the draft beer was ice cold compared with the other choices.  

The metal beer mugs they provide aren't insulated so if you have a Hydro Flask I'd definitely bring it along!

Lots of meat and veggies... you can keep ordering. 

There are only 2 types of dipping sauces so I really recommend you to bring some of your own favorites... I brought along some garlic paste and spicy yakiniku sauce. 

Also hard liquor at the self service open bar... 

My colleagues... always a fun bunch.

If you need a great spot for a company dinner this is a great place.  All you can eat for 1.5 hours and all you can drink for the full 2 hours as its an open bar.  Staff was mostly university students and super attentive and friendly. 

And the Lexus showroom nearby with a nice LFA

EBISU: Kicho for a great dish of gyoza and bottled beer! Very old skool... no foreigner spotting here.

I'm a huge fan of great gyoza and quite hesitant to enter this restaurant as it was so old skool and I have never seen any foreigners dine here.

It was steaming HOT in here! But I guess that can be part of the appeal... goes well with cold beer.

Great thing about this gyoza was it was very meaty... usually there are more veggies in gyoza at regular spots.

Mix the different sauces for dipping.

I'll probably be back again but it was just sooo hot in here... no AC?

NISHI AZABU: 86 Luca's Kitchen for a rather dry 500 yen kebab... ho hum.

Always noticed a kebab spot located next to Joe's Bar in Nishi Azabu and thought I'd give it a try.

Unfortunately the kebab is pre-cut and stored in this big metal pot.  Perhaps thats why it wasn't juicy at all... a bit on the dry side.

If you are hungry for a kebab I'd suggest hitting up Kebab Bar in Roppongi.

Always nice car spotting in this wealthy neighborhood... Bentley Mulsanne.

EBISU: Yaro Ramen... so super empty on a Saturday night. Oh my... but super close from the station!

Passed by here after a night of being out too long... so just pics as I don't quite remember what kind of noodles they used or the flavor of the soup. Sorry!  Will update if I ever go back again.

It was such a slow night the staff was waiting outside for customers.
