JINGISUKAN is from Hokkaido, where its the most popular & common BBQ they eat.(at home, outdoors and restaurants) There weren't many Jingisukan restaurants anywhere else in Japan, but about 6 years ago, a boom came since mutton/lamb meat has less calories than any other meat and woman jumped on it. Because of this many restaurants in Tokyo opened. In the beginning, people thought it was just another boom, but it turns out it wasn't. And one of the first shops to open and good one is KUROHITSUJI at Nakameguro.

Jingusukan is a pretty simple BBQ. Its slices of mutton meat with bean sprout and onions. The word Jingusukan actually comes from Genghis Khan, the famous ruler of Mongol. People in Hokkaido, eat marinated mutton, but in Tokyo non flavored mutton is more popular than marinated mutton. When its cooked, you dip it in a soy sauce based sauce. In my opinion, its this sauce which separates the good restaurants and not so good restaurants, more than the quality of mutton/lamb.

Put bean sprouts and onions on the grill first and keep the center part open so there is room to put the meat. Just grill it til its ready and dip it in the sauce before it goes into your mouth. JINGISUKAN (Mutton BBQ with vegetables) is 1,000 yen.

You can have a bowl of rice with this, but I recommend to have try their ramen, which is called ZEPPIN RAMEN for 480 yen.

The interior is simple, but modern unlike other Jigisukan restaurants, but do remember that it is very smoky inside.

If you don't have a reservation, the wait can be over a hour so I strongly recommend to make one. Also, for weekends they are open for lunch as well. Unless you over drink, they bill per person should be somewhere between 3,000-5,000 yen.
