2020 is a leap year, which means there will be an additional day in February, the 29th. Since ‘29’ can be pronounced as ‘niku,’ which means meat in Japanese, there are some restaurants that are planning to offer all-you-can-eat options to celebrate this special day that only occurs once every four years.
Here we will introduce three shops with amazing cost performance for all-you-can-eat lamb meat, sushi and shabu-shabu, a Japanese hotpot dish!
1. Carnism: Have Your Fill of Charcoal-Grilled Lamb Meat Bursting with Umami!
From Azabu-Jūban Station on the Toei Ōedo Line, a 1-minute walk will take you to Carnism.
This is a store specializing in charcoal-grilled chunks of meat cooked in stone ovens and locally produced craft beer. For the whole of February, at just 2,902 yen, Carnism is offering “Lamb Matsuri Course Zenjuppin”, an all-you-can-eat meal course with ten items, including four lamb dishes.
The four lamb dishes available under the all-you-can-eat option are lamb thigh meat, lamb arm, frankfurters made from minced lamb and winter-limited lamb hotpot. The lamb meat is grilled over charcoal in a clay tandoor oven till they are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Filled with umami, the lamb meat is cut and served to order.
Other items in the meal course include sheep cheese Caesar salad, lamb carpaccio cooked at a low temperature, homemade lamb gyoza, salt-boiled lamb meat on the bone, noodles, and dessert, totaling 10 items.
All these for under 3,000 yen is a real steal! Plus, the craft beers are locally brewed, and the in-store lineup includes over 30 selections. With the wide range of flavors available, you will be able to find one to create the perfect combination with your meal.
