Shibuya is one of the most famous places in Tokyo. It offers many restaurants, shopping malls, and various amusement facilities. If you want to explore and enjoy Shibuya, you should have a nice meal before that.
In this article, I'll introduce the yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant DOGEN in Shibuya. Their dishes are not only delicious but will also provide you with nourishment and power for your travels. Let's check it out!
Follow the Smell Towards the Yellow Lantern
The restaurant is located near Shibuya station. It is marked by the yellow lantern.
Many people are sitting on the foldable chairs around the simplified tables in the restaurant. This is also a great place to experience the atmosphere of an IZAKAYA (Japanese style bar). Let's go inside!
Beef Belly so Juicy That It is Melting in Your Mouth
You might be concerned that Japanese yakiniku is expensive because of the high-quality beef. However, you can eat juicy beef belly for only 480 yen in DOGEN.
This time I ordered "thin beef slices of Japanese black cattle" for 900yen.
Let's grill! Look at this fresh and juicy beef belly.
It is cooked very quickly because it is cut in very thin slices. Do you already feel your mouth watering?
Beer goes very well with any kind of barbeque. So why not order a cold glass of draft beer to go along with your freshly grilled meat?
Let's eat! The fresh beef belly will melt in your mouth. You nearly don't have to chew at all. The flavor is mild and slightly sweet. It tastes even better with rice.
