Tokyoen, located at Korean town in Ueno, is well known for the skirt steak so called Harami or perhaps may be better to say they made the skirt steak well known in Japan. The restaurant is so small and seems really outdated from ouside that you would not imagine if this is really the one that is famous, yet the fresh Yakiniku meat they offer for the customers are just splendid. This is a kind of place where you cannot judge a book by its cover. Among many tempting choices on the menu, Harami and Hormones are just exceptionally good which you might get caught in a situation whether you should order a second one or not. Tokyoen, on the other hand, is also quite popular for the celebrities in Japan, proving its highest quality. When you are looking for a good grilled meat restaurant in Ueno, Tokyoen is the must go place without doubt.
