Newly opened Kalbi Dojo (2-13-3 Akasaka, Minato-ku; http://r.gnavi.co.jp/b457603) brings together the best of casual Japanese and Korean dining. The raucous one-room standing izakaya features gleaming steel-topped tables with built-in yakiniku grills. Cuts of meat range from bone-in beef kalbi (¥980) and marinated pork (¥680) to a 1m-long strip of intestine (¥1,980). A wide variety of other horumon riyori is available from just ¥480. Non-grill items include kimchi (¥380), Korean nori (¥380), hiyayakko cold tofu (¥480) and wasabi-flavored potatoes (¥480). We’re not sure what the “otona macaroni salad” (¥380) is, and we’ll probably stay away from the “okra with mayonnaise and gochujang” (¥380), but there’s plenty else on the menu to enjoy. The vast drinks list includes makgeolli, plum liquors, sake, highballs, beer and lots more.
