Torishiki is a yakitori restaurant unlike any other! It has earned a Michelin star for bringing yakitori to the level of a culinary art. This place is extremely popular so reservations as much as 2 months in advance might be necessary to guarantee yourself a seat at this elegant restaurant. There is no fixed menu here, instead, the chef charcoal-grills in front of you his omakase selection (omakase means to leave it to the chef). He will first check if you have any preferences. Prices start at 5,000 yen for the omakase. Order your drink first at a separate cost and sip on your drink while the chef grills to perfection one by one your yakitori skewers. Possibly the best you will ever have! Counter seats only.
Men-ya Ishin 麺や維新
Men-ya Ishin is about a 5-minute walk from Meguro Station. This resto appeared in the 2015 Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide, this means it is considered to be a delicious restaurant for a cheap price. The most popular ramen is a soy-sauce based broth mixed with both chicken and dried sardines. It gives the broth a deep and sharp umami!
Yakiniku Inada 焼肉稲田
Yakinku Inada has a very stylish wooden interior design. It's the ideal place to dine and relax in a comfortable setting. You can even reserve private rooms for large groups. As for the food, it's simply one of the best around Meguro. You can get some prime beef cuts for a variety of prices, the most expensive being 2,400 yen for the superior cut of beef tongue. Cheaper and popular options are the kalbi with yakiniku sauce (1,300 yen). The restaurant is quite famous for tripes as well, and their kimchi appetizers are something you should definitely try!
Sushi Rinda 鮨りんだ
Sushi Rinda is a sublime sushi restaurant located near the Meguro Station. It is a place you have got to try if you are a sushi connoisseur. It is, in fact, pricey but it will be totally worth it if you're seeking the finest quality sushi. The concept is quite simple: offer the sushi made of the best seasonal ingredients and with rice cooked in the most traditional way, using a kamado or charcoal-fueled cook stove. Another characteristic of Sushi Rinda is that it uses a type of traditional red vinegar that has a stronger taste than commonly used sushi vinegar.

If you want to try old-school Japanese soul food, this is the place to try. Meguro Mitsuboshi Shokudou is just a 5-minute walk from Meguro Station's East Exit.

Their omu-ebi (shrimp) curry is also a must-try.
