If someone asked me where my favorite inexpensive restaurant for eating beef is the answer is very very easy. Its KITCHEN CARROT at Nishi Ogikubo. Cost performance wise no restaurant beats Carrot (most people call Kitchen Carrot just Carrot). Carrot's owner/chef family originally owned a small meat shop, but since he decided to become a chef instead, he closed the meat shop and opened Carrot. Not only the portions are huge and cheap, but all the beef used are Japanese, not from Australia or US unlike all other inexpensive restaurants. The reason why Carrot can provide dishes at a reasonable price is that owner/chef still has relatives working at beef market and also he purchases one whole cow, not by parts. Most of the menu are a combination grill like Steak & Hamburger Steak and there are over 30 of them.

But the most famous dish is SUTEMORI CHICKEN (Steak, Sauteed Chicken & Cheese Hamburg Steak). It weighs a total of 800g, Steak & Hamburg Steak 300g each and Sauteed Chicken 200g for only 1,580 yen. Not everyone orders this because of its portion, but since I only have one meal a day this is what I order all the time.

If you want to do kind of a surf & turf, there is JUMBO EBI FRY TOH STEAK (Deep Fried Jumbo Prawn & Steak) for 1,980 yen.


double steak
Or if you just want to have steak, there is DOUBLE STEAK, a combination of two different parts of beef for 1,280 yen.

Other popular dishes are OROSHI HANBAHGU TOH EBI FRY CREAM KOROKE (Hamburger Steak with Oroshi, Deep Fried Prawn, & Cream Croquette) for 950 yen.

During the winter and spring they serve deep fried oyster. You can order it as an appetizer, but most order it as a combination grill like HANBAHGU TOH KAKIFURAI (Hamburg Steak & Deep Fried Oysters) for 980 yen or with regular steak instead of hamburger steak for 1,280 yen. I've never had better deep fried oysters than Carrot's including the expensive restaurants.


beef stew carrot
Dishes like WAGYU BEEF STEW for 1,280 are available as well. And if you just want to eat top wagyu sirloin or filet mignon steaks as well, its available for less than 3,500 yen. Prices vary depending on the size of the steak.


carrot rice  miso
All dishes come with rice, miso soup and

coffee (hot or cold) or orange juice.


inside carrot
There is nothing around Carrot since its a middle class residential area, but whenever I have time I go to eat here even if it takes a little less than one hour from where I live. Its one of those restaurants where you eat and just leave, so if you are looking for a nice atmosphere this isn't the place for you.

Plus the wait can be more than 30 min on a bad day, but if you want to eat inexpensive steak/meat, this is the go to place not only in Tokyo, but in all of Japan. Its only 15 min away from Shinjuku by train, so if you are in Shinjuku or near by and finished shopping, craving for beef, get on the train and go to Carrot.
