Tangier Korean BBQ Of Tokyo

You would think after my last visit to a Chinese buffet, no more buffets for yours truly. Call me a glutton for punishment or someone who really appreciates deals. One of those coupon sites had a great one, two all you can eat dinners and sake for $25. Normally it would be $25 each or $20 on Monday nights. Months ago I tried a Korean BBQ in Koreatown for $9.99. Why would I spend more when I could have just gone back for another round?

You Get What You Pay For

In the past, I ate to live. My palette couldn’t differentiate between regular meat and higher quality meat. More recently, my taste buds were finally awakened. Simply put, Tangier serves the good stuff.

Hole In The Wall Hideaway

Tangier is a very unassuming restaurant from the outside. When you enter, you journey into a secret hideaway that is surprisingly bigger than it seems. You are greeted by enthusiastic servers yelling welcome in Japanese. These greetings rang throughout the evening. I started yelling some incomprehensible Japanese just for fun. The sake may have something to do with it. Plus, when in Japan, do as the Japanese do right?

Final Thoughts

For all you anime fans, a handful of your favorite characters guard different sections in the restaurant. To top it off, you have a psychedelic video screen grooving with European house music. I was so excited I told some friends who live out of town about my visit. Since they appreciate anime and good meats, the next time they are in town, the first stop will be Tangier Korean BBQ of Tokyo. If you are frugal like me, you normally would be quite satisfied at a $9.99 joint. But after working so hard and being so mindful of your money, do yourself a favor and live a little. You really do get what you pay for, if you are a smart shopper. Finally, when ordering your meat, try the Harami (skirt steak). It is to die for.

  1. We eat at hole in the wall places all of the time. I much prefer one off restaurants than big chains. Not only is the usually better but you get a real unique experience too. I have had Korean BBQ too just the veggie kind. It is quite yummy.

  2. 2 for $25 is a great price. I’ll have to go with a buddy though, Mrs. RB40 can’t pull her weight in a buffet.

    It is interesting that their name represents three locations in the name. Tangiers, Korea and Tokyo ( Japan). We occasionally eat Korean food and love the marinated food.

  4. This post has made me so hungry. Love great food, and this looks to be amazing, and outstanding value.

  5. Hole in the wall joints often are the best food. You just have to be careful — food poisoning can be a pain! Ha. I’ll have to try that Korean BBQ…..I’ve had Southern BBQ and it’s incredible. Korean though? Hmm…interesting.

      True on both points. For Korean BBQ, you fry your own food so just make sure it’s cooked and you’ll be fine. Quite different from Southern BBQ, you should give it a try if you are a meat lover!

  6. Count me in… love buffets, wine, and deals!!! Just have to remember to avoid overdoing it 🙂

  7. Hey Buck! Just giving you the heads up. Yakezie seems to have been hacked!

    oh yum. I had some kalbi yesterday at a friend’s bbq. I don’t go to all you can eat places that often b/c I always feel like I’m going to explode afterwards. I’m a casual gal so I don’t need a lot of ambiance to become a regular at a restaurant. Food quality comes first, prices and service second, location third, ambiance last. -Sydney

  9. Sounds like a fun time. You’re right, it’s good to be frugal, but we all have to remember to live a little as well. 🙂 In my area, I have found “several hole in the walls” that have amazing food for great prices. 🙂 Definitely a great night out.
