KOKUSAITENJIJOSEIMON (TOKYO BIG SIGHT): Tyoujukan Korean Restaurant for a full course dinner.

My boss always likes to take us out to dinner after exhibiting at Tokyo Big Sight tradeshows  Today I picked this Korean spot for dinner and drinks.  

All you can drink nomihoudai menu... normally 90 minutes but used Tabelog's coupon to extend it by 30 minutes.  



Enjoyed this... lots of seasoned veggies and kimchee


The waiter cuts up the pork samgyopsal and cooks it for ya... easy breezy. 


Korean pancake... yum

Motsunabe with lots of Tofu

Seasoned fresh salmon... I was never a fan of raw salmon.

Of course I had to have some sweet Korean makkoli

Then to close egg, rice and seaweed are mixed into the remaining stew soup.




Yum! 

Overall there are such limited selections in the Tokyo Big Sight area and most of the restaurants aren't very good... but totally recommend this Korean place!  Service is a bit slow so keep ordering drinks before you finish your current one.

Rarely have a chance to watch Projection Mapping but got lucky this night after the trade show.  Shot using my Sony RX100.

TOKOROZAWA: Izakaya Honoka.... This town in Saitama is filled with 1,000 yen all you can drink Izakayas!

On the way back from watching a rather boring play at a theater in the burbs we headed to Tokorizawa for a bite to eat.  This town has a great long shotengai with restaurants on both sides.  Loooots of Izakaya's offering 1,000 yen 2 hour all you can drink plans. 

4-5 restaurant sales guys must have approached us within a span on 50 meters and decided to go with Honoka that includes draft beer in their plan.






Food choices were ho hum... think Watami is much better than here.









Overal ho-hum but we didn't really go for the food... just the drinks.

OMOTESANDO: Harakara Burger finally has lunch combo specials! 1,000 yen for burger, fries and tasty drink.

Located right across from the brand new AVEX Headquarters... and in the same building as NARF and one of my favorite Yakitori spots Torimaru


I like the burgers here but tend to stay away from burger joints that don't have lunch time combo deals... some places its dinner pricing all day.


Lunch Combo... pick your items from Burgers (toppings extra), choice of a side (i got the fries) and a drink.


I ordered the Yuzu Tea with yuzu peels on the bottom... there must have been a hint of honey.  It was sooo tasty.

Free self serve water.

My plain lunch burger... this place doesn't carry any ketchup or mustard.

Loved the fries... very crispy with a super chewy center.  Addictive and ketchup wasn't necessary.



Overall a well balanced burger.  The patty was had a smooth texture (no steak chunks) so if you have a tooth ache this is your spot. ;)

Maserati GranTurismo nearby... think I prefer a Porsche.
