Yakiniku Like is a Japanese bbq fast food restaurant with the concept of a place to enjoy yakiniku alone. Yakinikus are usually known to take a while to order and eat, but Yakiniku like serves within 3 minutes after receiving an order on the simple menu. You can eat at your own pace, with your favorite doneness. The ingredients are cooked on a grill built into the table, with several pieces at a time. Yakiniku Like has locations all over Japan and 34 alone in Tokyo!
In Yakiniku Like, you can choose the kind of meat, amount, and sauce, to try to find a combination that you like best! The quick 3-minute service allows for a great quick and fuss-free meal. Yakiniku Like’s sets come with Yakiniku, rice, seaweed soup, and kimchi. The different kinds of meats they have include beef, kalbi, harami, wagyu, beef tongue, pork belly, chicken thighs, and more. The menu starts from 580 yen for a 100g mixed kalbi set, and my favorite set is the gyusuki set which includes a raw egg that I love to dip the meat in. Even though it is very inexpensive, the quality meat is high-quality and very delicious.
The best part of having your grill is having no pressure when cooking, or having the need to share. Most people who come to eat here are alone, and I think that alone, you get to savor and enjoy each bite to the fullest since you don’t need to worry about anyone else. There are also grills for sharing if you come in a pair or a group as well.
All the meats are already marinated in their in-house sauces, and their tables have many kinds of sauces to dip in, like Garlic Soy Sauce, Sea Salt Sauce, Miso Sauce, and lemon sauce. I like mixing a bit of everything to make a Frankenstein sauce to dip my meat.
Yakiniku Like is truly a great way to have a fun quick meal while out and exploring Japan. Sometimes during lunch or dinner time, some locations have a line to dine, but it is worth it. Next time you need a quick meal, go to places like McDonald’s or Saizeriya instead of going to Yakiniku Like!
