Restaurants & Cafés


Located in the centre of a triangle made by Akasaka-mitsuke Station, Akasaka Station, and Tameike-sanno Station, Kintan is a dimly lit restaurant and a relaxing atmosphere, known for their ‘Kintan Tongue’, which carries the same name as the restaurant itself (tan meaning ‘tongue’). Priced at a slightly extravagant ¥2,500, the ‘Kintan Tongue’ consists of 200g of meat taken from the prized section of a kurogewagyu (Japanese Black cow) tongue that’s been aged for twenty days. Additionally, they also offer some of the best reba-sashi (raw slices of liver) in Japan and warayaki-sagari tataki (straw seared hanging tender beef cut into slices). Furthermore, they also have set course menus that includes a yakigyu (grilled beef) set course for ¥7,500, a special ‘Kintan’ set course for the steeper price of ¥11,000, and a chef’s special course for a more reasonable ¥3,800.
