Best Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ ) Dinner in Shinjuku | Tokyo

What is Yakiniku


 

Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉), meaning “grilled meat“, is a Japanese term that, in its broadest sense, refers to grilled meat cuisine. “Yakiniku” originally referred to western “barbecue” food, the term being popularized by Japanese writer Kanagaki Robun (仮名垣魯文) in his Seiyo Ryoritsu (i.e. “western food handbook”) in 1872 (Meiji period).[1]The term later became associated with Korean-derived cuisine during the early Shōwa period.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Due to the Korean War, Korean restaurants in Japan were divided into North Korean (Kita Chōsen) and South Korean (Kankoku); the reference to a “yakiniku restaurant” arose as a politically correct term for restaurants of either origin.[8]

Today, “yakiniku” commonly refers to a Japanese style of cooking bite-size meat (usually beef and offal) and vegetables on gridirons or griddles over a flame of wood charcoals carbonized by dry distillation (sumibi, 炭火) or a gas/electric grill. In many parts of the world, yakiniku is also commonly referred to as “Japanese barbecue”.[9]

4.Choshunkan (長春館)


This place has the good balance between price and value. It is not too expensive but good quality. If you just go random Yakiniku in Shinjuku(especially Kabukicho) there are a lot of rip off or the restaurants are not providing good enough quality. These days those kind of restaurants , they are targeting tourists. I highly recommend not to listen to what they say.

This is more like for local Japanese favorite place I (Japanese author ) do recommend this type of place.
