[Tokyo]Various kinds of meat dishes! 2

You can see kebab restaurants here and there in Akihabara, and Kebab is famous as the local specialty. Now, “meat” restaurants serving dishes other than kebab are opened one after another, and a “meat” boom has come to Akihabara. Let’s go straight for meat dishes with glances at the electric town, “maid cafés” and other scenes of Akihabara.


Rich flavor of “white liver” with a scent of charcoal

Wine bar where you can enjoy yakitori grilled over charcoal fire and wine carefully selected by a sommelier. The bar serves rare parts of chicken grilled and skewered, and, of all the rare parts, “white liver,” fatty liver of a chicken is recommended most. The “white liver” does not have the odor unique to livers, and has tasty and rich flavor with a smooth texture.
Condiments for yakitori (eight flavor chili pepper, Aguni salt, spicy miso and Japanese pepper) are specially blended by a master chef. They give some different flavor to thigh, tsukune and other regular items.

Now the shop turns 10-storied building, which serves various kinds of meat dishes, such as grilled meats, steaks and pork ribs noodles at the same place. Grilled steak at Chiyoda on the 10th floor is worthy of mention. You can enjoy the luxurious atmosphere in the restaurant surrounded by huge glass windows. An iron plate is placed in the center with tables around it. Rich Japanese black marbled beef is grilled with seasonal vegetables in front of you, which is the height of luxury.
