A crossing on a major road somewhere in Motosumiyoshi (Toyoko line) marked by two imposing looking yakiniku restaurants on either side road.
Deciding between the two came down to Yakiniku Peking having more customers visible through the 2nd floor window, and the nice way the neon signage looked on a dark, humid, rainy night.
This atmosphere carried through to the shop interior itself. Clearly a relic of the bubble years, there was something “classic” about the place.
The tabletop grill was in a style I’ve yet to come across, and indeed, my dining partner informed me that the grill with which we were confronted was all the rage in the eighties.
The food itself was a little fresher. None of the meats offended, being tasty and reasonably proportioned.
The best of the evening was the cucumber kimchi and the tongue.
Not a bad restaurant overall, but no better than cheaper chain offerings, such as Genkaya.
