# Gourmet ♪ Japanese Yakiniku (Grilled Meat) Restaurant Under the Feet of Gigantic Godzilla in Shinjuku!!





Japanese Yakiniku (Grilled Meat) Restaurant in Shinjuku!!
 ~ Yakiniku BlackHole ~



In the sleepless district Shinjuku, you can find lots of shopping centers, commercial buildings, sightseeing spots, and also the newly opened bus terminals. Speaking of Shinjuku, we cannot miss the famous area Kabukicho!

About Kabukicho in Shinjuku

Kabukicho in Shinjuku is famous for the night time entertainment. Besides restaurants, bars, clubs, movie theaters, game centers and hotels etc., now there is another reason why visitors and locals come to Kabukicho!


They are here for the 12-meter tall Godzilla which is sitting on the Shinjuku Toho Building that was opened in spring 2015. Just at the corner with the big Don Quijote shop, you can find this gigantic Godzilla looking down at you! The Central Road in front of the Shinjuku Toho Building is even called by local people as "Godzilla Road"!!


Since the "Godzilla Road" gets so famous and the image of Kabukicho changed a lot in the last couple years, people started to gather around this area instead of gathering in front of the Shinjuku East Exit which is very crowded. So next time if you want to pick a good meeting point in Shinjuku, "Godzilla Road" is a good choice for you!


On the Central Road, there are many different restaurants and izakaya. Not too far from the Kabukicho entrance, you can find a famous Yakiniku (Japanese grill meat) shop where you can taste good quality Japanese beef! What's more? Even some Japanese super starts also visit this yakiniku shop!

A. About the Wagyu


Beef with high quality that even famous beef names cannot give you!

Speaking of wagyu, famous names like Kobe Beef and Matsuzaka Beef come to many people's mind for sure. However, there are still many other Japanese beef that has no names but the quality and taste are very good.

At BlackHole, professional chefs select the best meat, and only the meat with the best quality of the day is provided to their customers. So it is not about the names, it is about the quality!! 

BlackHole highly recommends the following beef to us:

01. Tri-tip (トモサンカク)


You may not familiar with this name indeed. Tri-tip is the tender triangular muscle cut from the bottom of the sirloin. It just tastes like eating the fatty tuna!

It also goes well with the green onions

Price: 1,700 yen + tax

02. Flap Meat (カイノミ)


Flap Steak comes from the beef shank where muscles exercise a lot. It has a great meaty flavor and fine texture.

It is especially tastes good with garlic and green onions

Price: 1,600 yen + tax

03. Chuck Flap Steak (ザブトン)


A good balance of meat and fat makes this steak tasty.

Suggests to eat it with some lemon juice squeezed on.

Price: 2,200 yen + tax

Grilling meat on charcoal!


Actually it is getting more difficult to find yakiniku shops that still use charcoal in Japan.

However, at BlackHole, they still provide charcoal grilling to make sure meat is cooked with the best taste. Grilling meat on strong burning charcoal fire gives you juicy and tender meat!!

Unique way to enjoy the grilled meat!


BlackHole provides 8 different types of green onions sauce for you to eat with the grill meat!

Looking for a healthier way to eat grill meat? Try eating it with these green onion sauce which makes a good balance with the meat.

Specially made alcohol to go with the meat! 


Black pepper is added to these two special drink which gives an interesting taste! It goes very well with the alcohol indeed!


Gin tonic with lemon, 790 yen + tax

B. Great Service

For those who are not into beef or do not eat beef, don't worry at all! On BlackHole's menu, you can find many other dishes that are not beef or made with beef.


For example, the seasoned chicken are other nice choices too!


Vegetables and salads are good choices to go with the meat too.


Other than those non-beef dishes, you can also find Korean style pancake "Chizimi" in Black Hole's original recipe.

This time, we ordered the "Half-Half Korean Pancake" (Korean Pancake with rice cake and cheese and Korean Pancake with shiso (an Asian culinary herb) and lotus root). We can try two different Korean Pancake at the same time!!

Half-Half Korean Pancake, 1,200 yen + tax

Big Surprise!!


At BlackHole, customers can even order something big and extra!! A whole big piece of awarded beef can be ordered here! Wanna get something in high-quality and do not mind to spend a bit more? Maybe this is what you want to order! However, it depends on your luck that day if the shop provides the awarded beef or not.


Once you had the beef in high quality and good taste in BlackHole, it is very difficult for you to go to other shops again since their meat and food are unforgettable!!

Foreign visitors are welcome!!


On the English menu, you can find two sets on the front page which include everything from salad, appetizer, meat, vegetables, rice and drink. So if you don't want to think about what to order, these two sets are good choices for you.


If you prefer to order things separately, just feel free to use the a la carte menu at the back. However, please note that a cabbage salad is served and there is a 500 yen (+ tax) appetizer charge for each person. Also, please order 1 drink at least per person.


After having a big yakiniku meal, why don't we take a walk on the Central Road! We recommend you to visit the famous Don Quijote shop and the drug store right across Wagyu Shio Yakiniku BlackHole!
