Bakamon (2F Chitose Kaikan, 13-8 Udagawacho, Shibuya; http://meturl.com/bakamon) is the only sakura niku, or horsemeat, specialty restaurant in Shibuya Niku Yokocho (“meat alley”) where 16 lively izakaya crowd together. They proudly serve a great deal of only fresh, non-frozen meat at reasonable prices. An assortment of three kinds of basashi (horse sashimi) served with special Kumamoto-style sweetened soy sauce and horumon (offal) are both only ¥1,000. Low-calorie and high-protein yukhoe (Korean style steak tartare) for ¥600 and chili sakura nabe (hot pot) for ¥1,800 along with yakiniku comprise just a few of their most popular dishes—and all for a very good deal.
