Tantale Fuji Reviews

The banquet I had with the Fukuoka master who helped me with my youth judo class was at ``Tantaire Fuji'' in Akasaka 3-chome.
This is a popular store that used to be located in Nishinakasu when Nobuta was in the Fukuoka branch.
Now, it has been relocated and has become a store with a great capacity.
From the outside, you can't imagine how spacious it is (lol)
As the name suggests, Tongue and Tail restaurant has 10 popular dishes listed at the beginning of the menu.
Salt-grilled tail
grilled tongue
Reba stab
Fried gyoza
tail soup dumplings
Tail soup offal hot pot
Japanese senmai sashimi
Foie gras liver sashimi
Stir-fried levanilla bean sprouts
In order.
The instructor will be ordering a la carte.
At the end, there was even fried rice that wasn't in the top 10, and I ate it up a lot (lol)
By the end, I was tired of eating.
By cutting down on alcohol, I was able to avoid binge drinking.
Grilled tongue, salt grilled tail, and grilled sagari were extremely delicious. Especially the tongue was terrible.
Thank you for the meal❗❗❗


A restaurant where you can order anything you want

All of the dishes that were served were delicious, and I was a little salty as I ate them while crying tears of frustration, wishing I could eat as much as Gal Sone.

It was my first time to eat tantail, and the flavor of the fat and the sweetness of the meat were strong.I wanted to eat it elegantly, but before I knew it, I was biting into it.

Also, when I was full and thought I was at my limit, when the yakimeshi to finish the meal came out, I thought I could only take one bite, but the yakimeshi here is a different drink.

When I ate it, it was gone.

Maybe he didn't eat, so I had to go again.

Such a wonderful shop, Tantail Fuji

I recommend it.


It seems to be a popular restaurant, and when I called on the day to confirm, I was told that it would be okay until 8:00 pm, so I immediately left the hotel and arrived just after 5:30 pm.
There was only one customer at the counter, but by the time 6pm passed, more and more customers were arriving.
The carefully selected tongue, tail, and heart sashimi were delicious.
