Kushiwakamaru in Meguro: An All-Round Unbeatable Yakiniku Tavern!

Looking for a yakiniku restaurant in central Tokyo that is affordable, delicious, has good cheap drinks and a Japanese tavern-like atmosphere? If so, Kushiwakamaru is the place for you to go!

Feel free to follow favy!

Kushiwakamaru

It's basically everything you want in a yaniniku restaurant. The only downside to this place is that it's so popular that you might have to queue for a while to get in. You can, however, make reservations. Kushiwakamaru has approximately 50 seats. It opens from 5 PM and closes at midnight every day. Located a 3-minute walk from the Nakameguro Station.
There are a good many counter seats from which you can see the chefs grilling.

Food and Drinks

Everything is grilled on charcoal, as yakitori should be! It makes the meat tender and gives that extra little smokey flavor. The cost is pretty reasonable. Most skewers are between 200 and 400 yen.
Another reason this place is so popular is this. A skewer of meat and Japanese green bell peppers wrapped around melting cheese. How to top that off?
How about with some "Jaga Butter", which are grilled potatoes with butter. A popular, original item from this tavern that is really popular.
Try out all kinds of skewers! The good thing is that they have an English menu so you should get a pretty good idea of what you'll get if you don't read Japanese.
Perhaps the shirasu bowl is not everyone's cup of tea, but you should definitely try it for something different! It's one of the specialties of this yakitori restaurant. The shirasu is a baby sardine.
As for drinks, they're mostly around 500 yen. They have beers, Japanese spirits (shochu) and various cocktails. Japanese sake comes in a bamboo container. How cool is that?

Lastly...

A value-added of going to this restaurant is that it's located near the beautiful Meguro River, known as one of the best spots in Tokyo for cherry blossom vieweing.
