We stumbled across this restaurant when we were looking for a Yakitori restaurant to complete our dining experience in Tokyo. Musashibou Restaurant is below street level but there is a display window of their dishes at street level.

We were attended to by a lovely old gentleman who didn't speak much English. He had a little notebook with English-Japanese phrases that he referred to while conversing with us. We ordered Rolled Omelette, Chicken Yakitori with a combination of cut and minced meat, Chicken Wing Yakitori, Deep Fried Shrimps, steamed rice, green tea and Japanese beer.

The chicken for the three types of Yakitori we ordered was grilled to perfection with the seasoning complementing the chicken nicely. The Yakitori with the cut chicken meat was accompanied by grilled spring onion which also nicely complemented the grilled chicken.

The portion for the Rolled Omelette was quite generous and the omelette was soft and fluffy. It was accompanied with some grated daikon that provided a good contrast to the egg omelette.

Apart from the Yakitori, one of my favourite dishes was the Deep Fried Shrimp which is eaten whole. The shrimps were not too salty and had a lovely crunchy texture.

We also decided to drink some Japanese beer, considered to be the thing to drink when you eat Yakitori. The beer we drank came from the famous Asashi brewery. It was enjoyable to the point that we wanted to purchase some to take home with us as a souvenir but unfortunately we found out that beer could not be carried aboard the plane.
