This cool and casual meat bar in Nishi Shinjuku is the perfect place to chill with great food and great wine in the heart of Tokyo! Diamond Dining Co., Ltd. has opened their new “MEAT & WINE Wine Hall Glamour NEXT Nishi Shinjuku” where you can sip wine at crazy low prices, starting at 60 yen. Let's see what they have in store for us!
Although you pay a small (500 yen) entrance fee, you'll soon make that up in incredible deals - their specialty is offering wines incredibly close to market prices! With highballs for just 60 yen, and beer for 160 yen, you'd think they would have no more room for cheap drinks on the menu... But you can even get full bottles of wine starting from 800 yen! (We were shocked too!)
If the low-price drinks aren't enough to tempt you, there's more - the food is incredible! With each dish being made onsite, you really know you're getting quality gourmet dishes. Let’s take a peek at the exclusive menu...
Shinjuku Store Dish Recommendations
In recent years, lean meat has really been in the spotlight. This dish really combines delicate taste with serious visual impact! When it first arrives at the table, we’ve been recommended to try it with the original taste of the meat together with salt and wasabi. After getting a full understanding of the taste of the meat, then try it with the original sauce that combines fond de veau and Vinho da Madeira to emphasize the essence of the red meat.
This thick-cut pork shoulder may look somewhat tough in texture – but looks can be deceiving! Once you raise it to your mouth, you’ll realize the pork is delightfully tender. The secret is their maturation process in which they use a 2-day herb marinade. A MEAT & WINE specialty created with 48 hours of labor and love.
Since its debut at other branches, this has been the most popular dish at MEAT & WINE. This meat comes from the tender rib area, and the meaty appearance is certainly reflected in its delectable taste! If you’re lost in the sea of delicious-looking items on the menu, this is definitely a good place to start!
“Freeze Maturing” is a technique for aging at freezing temperatures, making the meat fluffy and juicy even once cooked, a perfect pairing with any of the wines on offer. Of course, a healthier option is the herb chicken, which has recently been popular in Japan for its high-protein, low-fat properties!
A luxurious part that is often used for steaks, this melt-in-the-mouth sirloin is specifically tailored to shabu-shabu. The chicken on the other hand packs a punch even from first sight! The juiciness of the fried chicken with spicy undertones is complemented by the stimulating and refreshing spiciness of chili. Perfect with beer or a highball!
It’s not all meat! If you have someone who is not so much of a meat fan, these original seafood dishes might be a better option.
Despite the distinctly Japanese tastes, the crab dish goes well with the Western-style bread accompaniment. Speaking of Western-style, the Oyster Ajillo is not to be missed! With a Japanese twist of nori seaweed, this is something you won’t find elsewhere!
