Hakata Motsu-dokoro Kirari Reviews

Hakata Motsu-dokoro Kirari Google Average Rating



I made a reservation for 5 people and visited around 7:00pm on Tuesday. Even though it's a weekday, it's full, and it seems to be a popular restaurant with new customers arriving even around 10pm.
There was a birthday seat set up at the end of a raised table, but there wasn't much room for the table or seats, so it wasn't comfortable.
It was very disappointing that some of the drinks were sold out.

I ordered two types of motsu nabe: Meguro nabe (black) and Kiranashi nabe (white). I guess my expectations were high since it's a popular restaurant, but it was delicious, but not really delicious. I also ordered some horse sashimi and chopstick rest items. I have the same impressions about motsu nabe.

Both the customers and staff are young and lively, so it might be a good place to search.


Impressed by the super delicious motsu nabe ☆☆☆

The popular Motsu nabe restaurant in Meguro was definitely a must-see.
The inside of the restaurant was very cozy and the staff were friendly, so I was able to enjoy my meal.
This time I ordered Meguro Nabe, which the restaurant staff recommended.
Then, in between the hotpots, I ordered three kinds of horse sashimi and Tatsuta-age beef tongue, and to finish off the hotpot, I ordered a rice porridge set.

All of the meat dishes served by this restaurant have no odor or taste and are easy to eat.

☆Assortment of three kinds of horse sashimi...You can enjoy the texture of different parts of the horse, and there are various condiments, so you can enjoy variety.

☆Tatsuta-age beef tongue...The cubed beef tongue is crispy and soft in texture. An irresistible dish for beef tongue lovers.

☆Meguro hotpot...just the right amount of spiciness. Even though it has a miso flavor, it doesn't have a strong taste, and the flavor of the charred garlic makes it a rich and delicious soup.
The offal was plump, soft and easy to eat.

☆ Rice porridge set: Once you put down the pot, you can make it in the kitchen. It was an exquisite porridge with the concentrated flavor of the soup, aroma, and mellowness of the egg. It was very satisfying and I finished it in no time.

If you want to eat motsu nabe, this restaurant is definitely a must.
It has become my favorite shop.


Hakata Motsudokoro Kirari Meguro store in Meguro
I went to the Ebisu store before and had a hot pot that I had never had before, but this time as well⸜(๑⃙⃘'ᵕ'๑⃙⃘)⸝⋆︎*

What I received was
⭕️Assorted horse sashimi 5 types
⭕️ Heart sashimi
⭕️Kirari Nabe (Tororo Soy Sauce Flavor)
+ For porridge
⭕️Beer, sake, red wine

Horse sashimi and heart go perfectly with sake.
Last time I ate Meguro hotpot, it was quite rich and I felt like I was eating it.
This time I used a different white gleaming pot.
The combination of the grated yam and the richness of the offal and the light taste was great.
I don't think you'll feel hungry even if you eat porridge.
There was mentaiko and tofu inside, so it looked like Hakata hot pot!
It's a hot pot that's perfect for fall and winter₍₍( ´ ᵕ ` *)⁾⁾
