ishiyaki garlic rice
assorted kimchi



this was def one of my favorite meals in 2013! the food was absolutely mind blowing. def the best japanese yakiniku/korean bbq ive ever in my life. ingredients were def top notch. every single piece of meat was super tender and well flavored. not to mention everything felt very authentic, jus like i was back in tokyo. it was ‘life changing’ experience that i can never go eat korean/japanese bbq ever again in boston.

service was good for a regular restaurant but not super good for a japanese restaurant. very reasonably priced. we had at least 4 pitchers of beer and everything only came to about $55 per person including tips. reservation is recommended since they are always always business.
