Japan Tokyo Kabukicho Izakaya

6 May 2010

Food in Kabukicho

First an update on the feet situation. I decided to drain my various blisters, using the sharp corner of a pair of tweezers. Im sure they will redevelop, so fear not photos will be forthcoming on the next draining.
This seems to work though, as my toes feel much better.
I decided to head out around my hotel this evening, as it was quite late when I left. Also I ate a lot of crappy food today, so dinner should be something healthy, at least that was the plan.
I looked in some chemists (drug stores) for foot treatment things, and there seems to be these expensive sprays for your feet that are like antiseptic foot hardening products. They arent just foot deoderant as I saw those also, these things come in black fancy packaging and cost like $10. But all the writing on the box is Japanese and the 3 places I went to no one spoke a word of english, more research required.

After chemist failure I played some video games, including mario kart with 5 other dudes, I didnt come last, then I found my favourite dessert (before dinner), then I had my best dinner yet.

I walked the opposite way from my hotel, and found an entirely new area of bright flashing lights. By now all these photos are starting to look the same I am sure.

If you read everything I put on the internet, you will have seen these things in Hong Kong on my previous trip, and at the Adelaide Central Market. I rate this one as on par with Adelaide but inferior to Hong Kong. They are filled with custard or red bean paste. Tonight I had custard. I am sure they are really very bad for you, the dough is like a pancake, only very thick.

Dinner was at Don Don, when I arrived there was a hidden table around the corner at the back, and it seemed to be a lot of young yakuza type guys there with fancy hair and sunglasses on inside etc. Similar guys were all up and down the street tonight, unlike the last few days which were holidays. I guess Yakuza only control the red light districts on working nights, perhaps Kabukicho caters mainly for Japanese workers.
Anyway, they seemed slightly annoyed at my presence, but too late I had sat down. They left soon after.

This is a charcoal barbecue place where you cook your own.
I pointed at the menu and got some beef, corn and eggplant. The guy slices the beef while you wait, and sprinkles various spices on it and its splashed wish some kind of flavoured oil, as are the vegetables.
Inside the flaming bowl is very hot charcoal, the whole place fills with smoke as I cooked my meal.
It was delicious though, a bit of a financial splurge compared to other nights as it cost nearly $10 Australian.
