Meal under $100
Finding a high-quality dining experience for under $100 was too easy. We consulted our connections and found strong support for Yakiniku, ideal for relaxed group dining. Originally Korean, this cook-at-the-table, barbecue-style meal has been embraced and modified by the Japanese.
It began with grilled chicken and various vegetables including mushrooms, tasty side dishes and culminated in marbled wagyu beef with delicious dipping sauces, served straight from the grill we sat around.
What more could an Aussie tourist want? A beer, of course. In this case, Yebisu, one of the many first-class lager-style brews available in Japan at very attractive prices, hit the spot.
Another advantage was that the restaurant was around the corner from the hotel.
