Gonpachi Roppongi (Nishiazabu)

gonpachi roppongi

Let me talk about a Japanese restaurant/izakaya Gonpach in Nish-Azabu, Roppongi.

Well, I guess many of you may already have heard about this place as it has been quite famous already. The former Prime Minister, Mr. Koizumi took President Bush here, and it was used as a movie-set, which Uma Thurman played the action scenes of “Kill Bill”.

I’ve just been there for the first time and was surprised to see there were more foreigners than local customers. Some of their staff can speak English and the price is reasonable, it would be good place for a traveler. It seems that many business men transferred from overseas frequent here.

You can enjoy a good dinner of a la carte including yakitori, sashimi or donburi together with some sake, and it would only cost about 5,000 yen (about $50 US. ) per person.

To me as a Japanese person, the caricatured Japanese-style interior was very interesting!

It is about 10 min. walk from Roppongi subway station, located at the Nish-Azabu intersection.

Marunouchi HOUSE” has been opened last year as a community place where the people who work for these companies to meet and communicate. It is located on the 7th floor of the Shin-Marunouchi Building with cafes, restaurants and bars. In the open space, people can get together bringing the food & drinks they select from those shops.

You can look down Tokyo station or Imperial Palace from up there, and it is transformed to a club space with famous DJs playing at night. (I haven’t been there myself yet, but heard that DJs like Tei Towa and FPM’d played there.)

Because the concept is to “invite” your friends to Marunouchi, the area seems to be a sort of “established” during the day time, but “Marunouchi HOUSE” at night sounds like a casual and fun place. If you have a change to come to Tokyo, why don’t you check there?

    MOS Burger offers a wide variety of unique and original MOS burger, as well as local specialities. Menu and styles might have changed but the MOS policy and passionate commitment to creating delicious,quality burgers has never changed.

    My favorite combination is Spicy Mos cheeseburger,Spicy chili dog, French fries and Onion rings with New England clam chowder soup and minestrone.

    There are also items called “rice burgers”. The buns are made of rice, and instead of patties,they have cooked shrimps or pork cutlets with miso sauce.
