Izakaya Opens till Late Night in Shibuya

Enjoying awesome food and drinks at late night is always fun, especially with your good friends. But isn't it always hard to find a good restaurant opens late when you don't know the area? 

In Shibuya (so as other cities in Tokyo), many restaurants close between 10:30-12:00.  This list will help you get away from wasting time wondering around hungry! 

I categorized in  a price point so chose the one that suit your budget.

BBQ/Gut BBQ/Izakaya

If you are looking for a good gut (horumon) BBQ, this is the place.  It's in the middle of Love Hotel area so it's definitely a hidden spot even for locals.  They have regular meat and Izakaya side menus so you can still enjoy Ajikuara even if you are not into gut meat.  I usually order thick cut tongue (atsugiri tan)  and lightly roasted liver (aburi reba). You've got to try them!

Izakaya/Sake Bar/Japanese Fusion

I have been to Iwao several times and I keep on going back for their friendly customer service and good selection of sake.  Of course their food is awesome too. Nothing will disappoint you. The restaurant was originally a old folk house build 70 years ago and renovated beautifully.  The small entrance reminds me of traditional tea arbor. Just a note, Iwao opens until 1 AM only on Fridays and Saturdays.

Japanese BBQ/ Izakaya

Takibiya offers A-rank quality of meat and their specialty `Nikuno Hymalaya' (800g of Meat Chunk) kills every meat lovers.  They open until 2PM except Sundays and Holidays.  I love their BBQ but I usually go there for lunch to eat it cheaper.

Izakaya/Japanese Fusion/Dining Bar

Japanese restaurants usually give you 'fancy' potion but not at this place. Great value! Food menu is nothing crazy creative but just a basic Izakaya menu works for me.  Imamomukashimo is loacated very close from the station, about 3 minutes walk from East Exit of Shibuya Station.

Yakitori/Seafood/Izakaya

Toto means Fish, tori means chicken and ton means pork - Yes, basically this place has everything. I used to come here when I was young... because I had no money and wanted to drink all night!  Their all-you-can-drink course package is 3 hours where other restaurants usually offer 2 hours. Tototoriton offers a great value but if you are looking for a quiet place, you might want to pick a different restaurant.  

¥2,000-3,000

Kushiage/Kushikatsu/Izakaya/Udonsuki

Kushikatsu Tanaka is an Osaka style deep-fried skewer restaurants. So what can be on skewers? Anything! They have a dipping sauce for kushiage which is mild and sweat kind of like a light BBQ sauce. Dipping in a sauce twice is a big NO-NO in Osaka, so please don't do it and get yelled at by the owner!  It's a chain restaurant so you can find another one in different areas.  (There are 3 in Shibuya!)


TORIKIZOKU

 Izakaya/Yakitori/Chicken

This is Paolo's favorite because he loves Yakitori and it's REALLY CHEAP.   It is also a chain restaurant that you can find everywhere in Shibuya, but it's always full. If you are on a budget but still need to eat yakitori, Torikizoku is your choice.
