In Japanese, Korean BBQ is called Yakiniku, meaning "grilled meat". Ushigoro is a trendy non-smoky Yakiniku restaurant located in Nishi Azabu area. The restaurant offers premium beef at a very reasonable price. If you love red meat, this would be a great place to go.

Restaurant menu is in both Japanese and English. You can order a la carte or a set menu. Set menus come in three different prices, ¥6,500, ¥8,500 and ¥10,000. The more you pay, the better beef you get.  I went with the ¥8,500 course during my first visit. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed the meal so much that I decided to visit the restaurant two nights after and went with the ¥10,000 course. I highly recommend to choose one of the set menus as you can experience different cuts of beef. Make sure to make a reservation. If you want to choose the ¥10,000 course, inform the restaurant during your reservation as they need to secure the highest quality beef for that day.
