I'm open for suggestions but preferably within the same price range. :)
1. I would like to try good beef but only have a limited budget, ¥3800 would probably be the max, so I chose 511. Is this a good choice?
2. Do you think I should go ahead and break my budget for unagi and go with either Izuei Honten/Nodaiwa/Obana?
3. I read that Maruni serves Wagyu steak, has anyone tried this? :)
4. I chose Tonki just because of the open kitchen.
Any other suggestions for a better lunch/dinner? Thank you! :)
