Food Porn- Kanpai, Japanese Barbecue

25 Jul

Visited Kanpai for my sister’s birthday a few weeks ago. It’s a Japanese barbecue/beer joint that’s popular with the young lads. Yes, we came here with our parents, and yes, we were probably one of the oldest tables at the restaurant that night.

Whatever.

Everyone ordered a beer, though unless you order just straight up beer, the “beers” are really not that strong. Fun fact, if you finish your drink by 8pm, where everyone in the restaurant kanpais (cheers/toasts to each other), the restaurant will provide you with another drink for free!

lime beer. Tasted like lemonade in beer.

plum beer. Plum juice and beer. Surprisingly refreshing and delicious.

two barbecue sauces. Miso on the left and sesame oil on the right.

seaweed cabbage salad. Light, refreshing, crunchy, and tasty. It was really delightful, I can have just this for lunch any day.

homemade kimchi.

dont get grossed out, but this is beef tongue. don’t judge.

pork, delicately sliced.

beef tongue action on the grill.

assorted beef. Meat was tender and sweet. really delisher!

more beef, delicious!

Overall, it was quite a pleasant experience. There is a host on mic that gives special shout-outs to every table at 8pm, where everyone “kanpais”, cheers. Really fun without the cheesy factor that I always try to avoid. Meat was good, drinks are always good (for me anyway), and the atmosphere is nice. I highly recommend this place for your celebration, if you are in Taipei of course.
