ONITEI (Shibuya)

Posted by Tokyo Joe on 25.2011 Izakaya & Nabe 20 comments 0 trackback
鬼亭 outside
This restaurant is probably my favorite restaurant in Shibuya. They mainly serve chicken bbq (not yakitori) and if you book at least a day in advance they have a great nabe which is one of a kind. The name of the restaurant is ONITEI in Shibuya.


鬼亭 鬼亭サラダ
You need to make a reservation to get a table at Onitei which is pretty small. If you are a party of 6, you'll be squashed in a table which is suitable for actually 4. You wanna start out with ONITEI SALAD, which is basically a chicken mayo salad and then move to chicken BBQ.


鬼亭 ももの香草焼き
Vairous parts of the chicken are available and also it could be served in different sauces as well. Most of the sauces are a original of Onitei and not available anywhere else. What I usually do is order 3-4 chicken BBQ dishes starting out with MOMO NO KOHSOYAKI (Thigh meat with herbs).


鬼亭 grill
Grill the thigh meat which is marinated with dill and when its done dip it in a olive oil sauce, which has garlic & herbs in it. This sauce will be warmed on the grill as well and once it comes to a boil you take it off the grill. If you are a first timer, the waitress will explain everything to you.


鬼亭 ネックの葱塩 enlarge
Next is NECK NO NEGISHIO (Neck meat with green onion & salt). The sauce over the neck meat is made out of green onion, sesame, salt and sesame oil. You mix it up with the neck meat before you grill it.


鬼亭 つくね
A favorite to almost everyone is TSUKUNE (Minced chicken meat).


鬼亭 つくね 1
Don't know what all the ingredients are but its not your ordinary Tsukune. My favorite way of having it is with Wasabe on top. You can also have it will herbs are as well, but in my opinion it goes better with Wasabe.


鬼亭 砂肝
They also have meats like SUNAGIMO (Gizzard).


鬼亭 nabe
If you did make a reservation at least a day in advance, you have to order their special nabe (hot pot), ONITEI NABE. When you do make the reservation you need to tell them you want to have this. What's in it is various vegetables, chicken and pork belly. The minimum order is for 2, which is the above for 5,600 yen and it is huge. I always go with 4-6 people and we just order for 2.


鬼亭 nabe 1
First, the chef/owner will come by and prepare it for you. He will cook the meat first and then add the soup stock, which is a chicken based stock with chili pepper added to it, and then green onions will be added on top like you see in this picture.


鬼亭 nabe 2
When the green onions shrink, its ready to eat.


鬼亭 nabe3
When you are done with vegetables and meats, you add the noodles to finish it. But if you are still hungry, you can add rice to is as well and make OJIYA (Rice gruel) like other nabe's.


鬼亭 蔘鷄湯
Besides Onitei Nabe, there is SAMGYETANG (Whole Chicken in Chicken Soup with sticky rice inside). This is delicious as well, but you can have this at Korean restaurants since this is a Korean dish and probably get the real deal instead of a Onitei version of it.


鬼亭 inside enlarge
The chicken they use are super fresh, not only the ones that I mentioned, but various parts are available and also the BBQ could be served in different sauces as well. Most of the sauces are an original of Onitei and not available anywhere else. If you didn't book a day in advance and not order Onitei Nabe or Samugetan, they have other dishes you can order when you get there, but I strongly recommend to reserve a few days in advance and order Onitei Nabe. Its one of the top 5 nabe's I ever had.

Your photos never display when I view your entries, no matter what browser (I get a "Page not found" error when I click on the photos). Know how to fix it?

I've just tried it with my friend's laptop at starbucks wifi connection, but the problem you mentioned didn't occur. (used IE, Firefox, Chrome) Don't know what it is so you might wanna google it and try to find out or contact your isp and ask their customer service.

Hey, just wanted to say this is an awesome food blog. I'm going to Tokyo in a few weeks and will likely go to half the places you have here.

Thanks. If there is any particular type of cuisine (even area where you will be at) you are looking for let me know. I'll pass it on to you or even post it before you get here. Have more than 100 restos to post still. There are over 80,000 restos here.

To be honest, you have a great selection of restaurants. I've actually mapped every single one of your restaurants in google maps..

I did have two questions. Have you tried any beef sashimi places? I hear they're quite popular nowadays. Also, I'll be in Kyoto for another 5 days. Do you have a blog or trusted source I should look to?

Most top steak restos have beef sashimi as an appitizer, but here is a place in Tokyo which I've never been to but heard from friends that its good. They use Matsuzaka beef, which is as just as famous as Kobe beef in Japan.

USHIMARU (in Japanese 牛丸)
Address: 3-2 Kagurazaka, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo
(in Japanese 東京都新宿区神楽坂3-2)
Nearest train station: JR or Tokyo Metro Iidabashi (5 min walk)
Tel: 03-3266-8100
Reservations: Yes
Website: http://ushimaru.jimdo.com/ (in Japanese only)
English menu: No
Credit Card: Yes (VISA, MASTER, JCB only)
Open: 5:30pm-10pm
Closed: Sunday & Holiday

Also, I go to Kyoto often so I do know many restaurants there, too. If you wanna go to a beef place in Kyoto, I strongly recommend YASSAN or ISSHIN. There are both famous Japanese style beef restaurants so ask your hotel concierge to make a reservation for you.(its a must to make one and you might not be able to get a table on such short notice...btw, I like Yassan more than Isshin, but they are both great) Found a blog in English about Isshin, not for Yassan, but Yassan has there own website.
http://shaneonthego.blogspot.com/2010/02/isshin.html
http://www.yassan.net/index.html

I don't know any English blogs regarding Kyoto, but I have a list of places to go. Let me know what you want to eat and I'll give you my recommendations, but here is a resto thats super popular to locals and great value for Japanese food.
http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g298564-d1778631-Reviews-Giro_Giro_Hitoshina-Kyoto_Kyoto_Prefecture_Kinki.html

Also my friend's husband who's from Israel owns a Sake bar in Kyoto. Really famous to not only foreign tourists but to locals as well. Its closed Monday & Tuesday, but if you ask him, he'll give you tons of advice on where to dine and hang. Just tell him that his wife's high school friend who lives in Tokyo recommended his place. There is only one who lives in Tokyo so he'll know who I am.

Hope this helps...

Wow, thank you!

Ill be going to all those places. I'm in Kyoto for five days so if you could give me your top 10-15 places to eat I would go exclusively there. To your point, trusting Zagat and Tripadvisor has netted me fairly mediocre foodie experiences. Your site is awesome to find those places only a local foodie would know.

In terms of what I would like to eat, I'd like a mix of high end, medium end, and "blue collar" type places. Basically, my only requirement is that its good and uniquely Japanese/Kyoto.

Once again, your site rocks. I'd recommend starting up a twitter account and/or facebook account to get more people onto your site.

Here are 5 restos I recommend from high end to blue collar. I strongly recommend TEMPURA MATSU, which is near Arashiyama. Almost, every Japanese food chef goes here to eat and learn. The chef is really respected from his pears. There are other restaurants more famous and than this one, but this is my go to restaurant in Kyoto even though its on the west end of Kyoto. Great value and amazing food.

Also, I do have a personal twitter and facebook account using my real name, but don't want to associate it with this blog. Maybe if I make another account I could, but too lazy and too much to do.

Found a resto guide in English for major cities in Japan. Think its pretty useful.

Hey Joe,

I'll be heading to Tokyo on Friday and am locked and loaded on your suggestions. I'll be going to Tamoiyanse, Tonki,MOCHI MOCHI NO KI, Namiki Yabusoba, KANEMASU and sushiso masa. I'll tell you how it goes. Thank you for all your help. I'm still putting together my Kyoto Itinerary.

As an aside, do you have any lunch recommendations for Kamakura and Nikko?

For Kamakura, for a typical cheap good Japanese lunch try
TATSUYA (in Japanese 達や)
Address in Japanese: 神奈川県鎌倉市扇ガ谷1-1-29
its located on the 2nd of the building, right above a hair salon called PACIFIC BLUE
3 min walk from Kamakura station
Tel: 0467-84-8873
Open: 11:45am-1:30pm
Closed: Thursday
Credit cards: No

They only have two set menu's for 1,000 yen. One is DASHIMAKI TAMAGO TEISHOKU (Japanese Egg Omelet) or YAKIZAKANA TEISHOKU (Grilled fish). It comes with a bowl of rice and miso soup. If you are more than 2 people order one each. Also, for the YAKIZAKANA TEISHOKU they might have several fishes to choose from.


Regarding Nikko, there is really only one thing to eat there which is YUBA (Tofu Skin). There are many restos which serve a full course of it, and I've only been to one place which is:

NAGOMICHAYA (in Japanese 和み茶屋)
Address in Japanese: 栃木県日光市上鉢石町1016
20 min walk from Tobu Nikko station
Tel: 0288-54-3770
Open: 11:30am-2:30pm
Closed: Wednesday
Credit cards: No

This place only has two set menu's as well.
One is YUBA LUNCH for 1,500 yen and the other YUBA KAISEKI for 2,500 yen

Btw, if u r going to Mochi Mochi No Ki for ramen, the soup is super hot so be careful when you drink it. I would try TONARI near Tokyo station as well. All my friends from the states love TONARI, plus its near Tokyo Station.

How is it going so far with the restos?
Enjoying Japan and food?
2011.12.13 14:03 | URL | Tokyo Joe #- [edit]
It's been going great! Thank you for all your recommendations. I'm going to sushi masa tonight. I've been to kanemaru, gogo curry, Tamoiyanse, tonki, the spicy ramen place, and a few others. My only concern now is my five days in Kyoto. I'll be using your recommendations there as well!

Like I said before, your site rocks!
