Japan is often fairly light on the meat dishes compared to western countries so it can be a shocking sight to see a mountain of meat in front of you. If you're up for the challenge and craving some nice quality meat selections, Midtown BBQ is the restaurant for you!
With locations in Nagoya and Yokohama, this steak and smokehouse is something you don't want to miss. Midtown BBQ serves burgers, barbecue, ribs, steaks, and salads, and almost everything on their menu is made in-house. They even have original BBQ rubs and sauces. Even their desserts are handmade.
In addition to these menu items, Midtown BBQ is famous for its dinosaur tray. This absurd portion offers a variety of meats and sides that are sure to fill you up. With a wide range of meat on your platter, including chicken, sausage, ribs, pork, and four sides, it is all you could ever ask for. The dinosaur platter comes with great quality meats and tastes like nothing else you'll find in Japan. Once you finish, you'll be so full you won't be able to leave!
If you are looking for something a little lighter (but still quite large!), Midtown also offers a big boy tray. This dish serves ribs, pork, chicken, and sausage in smaller portions with three sides instead of four. For those craving a burger, Midtown BBQ has a plate called “The Great Outdoors," serving four burger patties with four slices of cheese.
Midtown BBQ's philosophy is simple – delicious food, great drinks and gracious hospitality. It makes for a fun environment with good music and a wide selection of drinks.
