BROZERS inside

A & G DINER (Gaienmae)

AG DINER outside
When I first came back to work in Tokyo from the states, there were only a handful of restaurants which served a decent burger. Now there are famous burger shops from the states in Tokyo, but many good local burger shops have opened in the last 10 years as well. A & G DINER at Gaienmae is one of them.

AG DINER inside
A & G Diner's burgers are pretty authentic, so I won't get into details, but all you expect in a burger is all there.

チーズバーガー AG
CHEESE BURGER for 1,050 yen,

べーコン&チーズバーガー AG
BACON CHEESE BURGER for 1,200 yen,


They also have FISH CHEESE BURGER for 1,000 yen,

バッファローチキンウイング 700円

GUMBO SOUP for 550 yen,

オニオンリング ag
ONION RINGS for 480 yen.

Of course, you can takeout most items, but for takeouts items like PORK CUTLET SANDWICH,

サーモンとクリームチーズ ag
SALMON & CREAM CHEESE SANDWICH are more popular than burgers, since the burgers are very juicy which makes the buns wet for takeout.

AG DINER menu 3
There is an English menu, so you shouldn't have any problem ordering your food. Its not a big restaurant, but if you want to have an authentic burger in Tokyo, A & G Diner is one of the places you want to consider.

TUCANO'S (Shibuya)

TUCANOS outside
Ever since I was a kid growing up in New York, I loved Brazilian food. There was a restaurant which was one of my late father's favorite and he would take the family their twice a month. But after moving back to Japan, I didn't have any for a couple of years. For some unknown resson there aren't too many Brazilian restaurants in Tokyo. There are actually a couple of cities outside of Tokyo, with a large Brazilian community and restaurants. One of the few Brazilian restaurants in Tokyo, which serves Churrasco BBQ is TUCANO'S in Shibuya.

トゥッカーノ ribs
Churraso is one of the most popular foods of Brazil. Various meats are on a skewer, cooked in a rotating grill and at Tucano's it is served by waiters dressed like Gaucho's (cowboys).

トゥッカーノ beef
They carve meat off the skewer on your plate each time,

トゥッカーノ various meats
They serve 10 different parts of meat which are PICANHA (Beef rump), ALCATRA (Top Sirloin), CUPIM(Topsider), COSTELA (Beef Rib), PICANHA NO ALHO(Garlc Steak), LOMBO (Pork Loin), COSTELA (Pork Rib), LINGUICA (Pork Sausage), FRANGO (Chicken Drum Sticks), CORACOES (Chicken Heart).

トゥッカーノ salad bar
One of my favorites is the salad bar with over 30 vegetables and 10 dressings to choose from.

トゥッカーノ fegioada
There is FEIJOADA (Brazilian Beans Stew), which is eaten with rice for almost every meal in Brazil and also CURRY, SAUSAGE, FRIED CHICKEN, PASTA, FRENCH FRIES and many other items at the buffet.

トゥッカーノ dessert
They have various desserts at the buffet as well

トゥッカーノ chocolate
including a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN, but compared to other items all the deserts are average or below average.

トゥッカーノ garlic steak
For lunch, you can just have the buffet or STEAK PLATE for 880 yen on weekdays, 980 yen for weekends & holiday or even have CHURASSCO for 1,980 yen on weekdays, 2,900 yen for weekends & holiday. There is also MINI CHURASSCO lunch, 5 different parts of meat instead of 10 for 1,590 yen on weekdays, 2,500 yen for weekends & holiday. A soft drink bar is available for 110 yen as well.

トゥッカーノ dancer
During dinner time they have a band which plays bossa nova, and also samba dancers come out as well, so the place is a bit lively and loud.

トゥッカーノ inside
Tucano's beef is from Australia not Japanese beef, but it is top Australian beef. I usually have the lunch Churassco on weekdays when I'm in Shibuya because it is half the price of dinner. Plus the samba dancers at night are a bit disturbing for me, but if you like entertainment during dinner it should be fun. It may not be one of the best Churassco's you ever had since I've had better ones myself in Brazil, but if you are craving for beef or Brazilian food, Tucano's is one of the few places to go in Tokyo.
