Indulge in Delicious Japanese Beef in Tokyo

In Tokyo there are countless restaurants where you can sample exquisite Japanese and western-style food, including sushi, ramen, and local dishes.
One food you definitely should try is wagyu beef.

Today we'll introduce different wagyu beef restaurants suitable for solo diners, groups of friends, and also for those following halal dietary restrictions.

Try this truly delicious beef just once and you'll become hooked to its great taste!

Restaurants Ideal for One Person!

1. Misono in Ikebukuro

Misono is a yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant geared for those eating alone. It uses A5 rank wagyu beef and customers can order their meat by the slice and choose from the 55 different cuts of beef.

At a typical yakiniku shop, a set for one person usually consists of four or five pieces of the same cut of meat. This makes it difficult to try different kinds of meat if you are by yourself.
But no worries! This yakiniku shop has solved that problem.

Our recommendation is the moriawase (assorted meat) course, which costs 3,000 yen plus tax. This course features twelve different varieties of meat, allowing you to savor the taste of wagyu slice by slice.

This is the perfect shop for diners wanting to sample various cuts of beef when dining solo.

2. Jiromaru - Stand and Eat Grilled Meat in Shibuya!

Jiromaru Shibuya is another yakiniku restaurant ideal for single diners. Here you can eat high-quality wagyu beef at reasonable prices.

This is a stand while you eat (tachigui) establishment, with no chairs at the tables. We've been told that because of this dining style, customers stand close to each other and socialize naturally.
