A Japenese restaurant opened up closeby a couple of years ago. I’d visited a couple of years ago and had some really decent yakitori so as I was out in town one evening I thought we might as well give it another try.
Gypsy and Pig, located at the corner of Little Lonsdale and Hardware Streets, is a well patronised Japanese restaurant in the Melbourne CBD and it specialises in Japanese pork dishes.
The last day of my 4th Japan trip had arrived and after popping into Bic Camera in Akasaka I strolled back towards my hotel and along the way I knew I’d be heading past a restaurant called Masamune which specialises in tonkatsu, crumbed pork cutlets.
After my offal yakitori I headed pretty much next door to the Ottotto Brewery.
If you don’t go out of your comfort zone every now and then when you travel you are possibly missing out.
On a rainy Friday evening in Tokyo in the Hamamatsucho area I pulled up a map looking for yakitori and there was one with pretty good reviews less than 100 metres away.
