    Midtown BBQ

    I just returned from a three-week trip to Japan and my stomach still longs for their food. My wife did not want me to get American BBQ since, you know, "we're in Japan". But luckily for me, she left the global wi-fi on the Shinkansen (bullet train) so I, the dutiful husband, volunteered to go alone from Nagoya to Tokyo to retrieve it. Of course, I went to a place with American-style BBQ.

    This place is great and convenient to the Suidobashi and Iidabashi Stations. The food was extremely well prepared with a good smoke and rich flavors. I ordered the Big Boy plate (though the Godzilla plate was tempting) and ate the ribs with my fingers, not chopsticks. They let you split the sausage, one spicy and one less spicy which I chose. The waiter was from North Carolina and said the Big Iowa BBQ is also a good place that even served cornbread.

    They have locations in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Yokohama. Just search Midtown BBQ Tokyo and you can access the menu and all locations.

    I spent 18 days in Japan in December. One night we took a train from Tokyo to Yokohama. We had dinner at a resturant in Chinatown and then hit the streets and feasted on more food, street food, steamed buns, and yakitori, among other tasty morsels and desserts. I was stuffed.

    On the way back to the station, my daughter suggested a brewpub she had been to, Bashamichi Taproom. We stopped in to sample a flight or two. We were seated upstairs with the other foreigners and given a beer menu. I could smell smoke, sweet smoke. I asked my wife to hand me the dinner menu. Sure enough, BBQ!

    There was hardly room in my stomach for a sip of beer. Let alone ribs or brisket. Luckily, their house-made sausage is on the menu as an appetizer. I ordered a plate. Judging from the sausage, I would bet the BBQ was very good. The owner was from or lived in Texas, and the place was legit. This was the only American-style BBQ I had while there. I would have had more, but the beer was good too!​

      Beer tasting is a thing. I bet that pairs well with the BBQ plate.

    So not a traveler, but after watching Bullet Train, I would at least spend a couple weeks in Japan.
