American-sized dishes piled with splendid meat-based cuisine

With a glass of wine in one hand, eat to your heart's content

This restaurant is found in a building on a back road behind the Bishamonten temple, just off Kagurazaka's main street. If you're looking for meat, then you've found the place you want to be.

This is 29. Locals and regulars call it simply "Niku", a Japanese play on words meaning both meat and referring to the name of the restaurant, and it has earned its name among meat-lovers.

The first floor provides a chic air of seclusion, as if you have entered someone's secret abode. Take a peek through the window at what's happening in the kitchen as you enjoy your wine.

The second floor was designed with an underlying white tone which, combined with the large windows, creates a feeling of openness. It even has a counter, perfect for those choosing to dine alone.

As you would expect, each dish is designed to ensure that diners get the true unadulterated flavour of the meat.

The most popular dish is their US Angus ribeye steak frites. This is the steak to eat, and diners inevitably let out a squeal of glee when it arrives at the table. This red meat is both healthy and richly flavoured, and even those with light appetites find themselves almost licking the plate clean.

If you're looking to try a few different meat flavours, your best bet is the daily three meat grill sampler. Each day the chef offers a selection of meats to satisfy the palate of any gourmand, and dishes can include lamb shoulder, aigamo duck, whey-fed pork, and beef rumpsteak.

Meat quality is of prime importance, and once you try a bite of properly prepared shoulder roast or any of the other cuts of offer here, you will never look at red meat the same way again. Come to 29, where you can treat your tongue to a truly profound and joyful meat experience.

Interview

What is unique about your restaurant?
The staff are all men. Some of them have been here for a while, but all of them put their hearts into the service and food we offer. What makes us most unique is that even the staff love the restaurant, and they have fun as they work hard.
What it is often utilized?
Sometimes we get groups of women where everyone wants to eat as much meat as they can, and sometimes it's boy night out, and the guys just want enough to whet their appetites. The atmosphere of a restaurant is created by its customers, so when everyone is excited and having fun, that's when I happy.
What do you think is important in cooking?
When food is sent out, I'm always thinking about how I would feel if it were my dinner. Taste is obviously important, but I also try to give people get a sense of surprise and enjoyment in the presentation and aromas, too.
