At Yasukuniya in Nikko

Yasukuniya is a typical countryside izakaya.
What's not typical about it is that it's famous for a gigantic proportions pork steak.
It's so famous, it's been featured on NHK.

Here's what I saw.

Unremarkable from the outside:






A simple, gray building:



A very cramped interior:






And a small "reserved" dining area:





But the food... Oh, the food is delicious!!!

Heavenly buta kimchi (pork kimchi):



And finally, the dish that brought the NHK tv crew here:



Pork steak so big they call it "Ayers Rock". My hand next to it for scale. Yep, it's huge slab of meat. And it's delicious. They can make a doggy-bag for you if you can't finish it all there.

There is also a monster-sized fried chicken on the menu. I want to try it next time :-)
