Marumo styles itself as a Japanese “bowl cafe” serving Japanese “soul food.” It’s definitely a bowl cafe: The teishoku (lunch sets) include bibimbap, doria, donburi, om-rice — standard and simple. The bowls are big enough to wash a newborn baby in. Marumo also has ...

Wakanui is a big posh steakhouse — a date kind of place (or, ideally, an expense-account kind of place). Their French rack of Canterbury lamb is grilled on Japanese binchotan charcoal (considered Japan’s best).

The company’s name, Bakushu Kobo, translates as Beer Workshop, and the brews, though promising, are still a work in progress. Nomura experiments with flavor profiles by adjusting recipes frequently. All of the beers are unfiltered, fresh and light on the palate, if a little ...

With 20 taps running in the bar, there’s a beer to suit every taste. In addition to the six main beers, four other taps will be special editions, some exclusive to BrewDog bars. The establishment also features beers made by other breweries all over ...

Kaiserhof does a number of German classics, such as eisbein (pickled ham hock), spatzle (pasta-like dumplings) and a whole lot of wurst (sausages). The latter are served on hot cast-iron pans with sauerkraut, flavored — appropriately — with caraway seeds. There’s apfelstrudel (apple strudel) ...

The menu at Zum Bierhof isn’t as extensive or as fancy as at Kaiserhof, but you can get currywurst (and it’s cheaper, at ¥1,029). Both Kaiserhof and Zum Bierhof serve beer from Hofbrauhaus, Munich’s famous 400-year-old beer hall (though at a hefty mark-up).

Konig is steps from Inokashira Park and also does other picnic-ready items such as grilled sausages and leberkase (“liver cheese”) sandwiches; there is also a fridge full of German beers.

The inspiration for the kitchen here is Italian. The antipasti list is brief, but there’s a good range of pasta with several made fresh in-house each day. But these are mere preliminaries for the main event: pork (spare ribs or shoulder butt), chicken or ...

Expect to find an equally eclectic range of quality ales, lagers, pilsen, stouts, lambics and heady Trappist brews at the new venue. There will also be a food menu with distinctly Flemish overtones, including mussels steamed in wine and their patent recipe for frites ...

The food is never the main reason for going to any beer garden. And although there it does feel rather institutional at times, Sekirei has much more to choose from than fries and chicken wings.

Beer like this is virtually a meal in itself, especially when you have such a variety of flavors. But with alcohol levels of well over 5 percent in these brews, some solid fuel is definitely a good idea. There is a good range of ...

This remarkable pub is a mecca for all microbrew enthusiasts and carries scores of jibiiru (locally brewed beers) from all around the country.
