Sorry that I haven't been able to post anything for almost a year, but my new gig has kept me away from everything including my better half. Will try to post at least twice a month from now.

UR outside
Japanese people just love Korean BBQ, but that is Yakiniku (Japanese style Korean BBQ) and I think any foreigner would admit that they love it as well. There are just so many Yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo, but if you are looking for a place where you can use for a date or business dinner and still have top beef, USHIGORO at Nishi Azabu is one of the new trendy Yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo.

UR tennai
You can order a la carte at Ushigoro, but my recommendation is to order their most expensive course called KIWAMI COURSE for 10,000 yen per person. Kiwami means "The Best" and the beef is exceptional for this price.

UR sirloin
It starts out with a thinly sliced Sirloin.

UR Sirloin yaki
It's just cooked for a few seconds and then they roll it, deep it in an egg sauce and you eat at one bite.

UR Tongue
Next is Tongue which is also thinly sliced. It's rare to see such thinly sliced tongue.

UR Tongue cook
This is also just cooked for a minute or two.

UR Bui 1
Various parts of beef are provided. It usually depends on the day, but HARAMI (Skirt), TOMOSANKAKU (Top lound), KALBI (Short plate) mostly served.

UR Namuru
Of course, KIMCHI (Spicy pickles) and NAMURU (Light boiled seasoned vegetables) come with the course.

UR mino
Stomach parts like MINO (Tripe) is in the course and not chewy at all.

UR Chateau Burian
But the best part is CHATEAUBRIAND (center part of tenderloin). It is unbelievably tender and juicy. By far, my favorite part of beef at Ushigoro.

UR Rice
At the end, you get to choose from BEEF CURRY and a couple other soup rice dishes before desert.

UR desert
And of course, just like any Yakiniku restaurant they offer simple deserts like ICE CREAM, and ANNINTOFU (Almond jelly).

UR Wine
For a yakiniku restaurant, Ushigoro has an amazing wine list. I've never seen such a wine list at at yakiniku restaurant. Plus the prices are very reasonable. Make sure you make a reservation a couple of days in advance. It is not down to earth Yakiniku, very modern, but if you are looking for a non-smoky Yakiniku restaurant with top beef and service, Ushiroku is for you.
