Ever dreamt of becoming a Japanese martial arts master? Then you wouldn't be a stranger to the iconic yellow jumpsuit first worn by Bruce Lee (and then Uma Thurman) in "Kill Bill"!

But even if yellow jumpsuits don't suit you (pun intended ?), you can still channel your inner Japanese martial artist when you dine at Gonpachi in Tokyo's Nishiazabu district--the restaurant which inspired the memorable set in the "crazy 88" fight scene in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill!

Best of all, they've just recently launched a Muslim-friendly menu which is sure to be a "killer" hit among Muslim travellers everywhere ?

So not only do you get to dine in an authentic Edo-style interior at Gonpachi, you can also treat yourself to some authentic halal Japanese food here too!

Enjoy sumptuous classic Japanese favourites like ebi shinjyo (fried shrimp), sumiyaki (charcoal-grilled beef and chicken), and tempura in Gonpachi's rustic environment for just ¥6,500.

From fried shrimp dumpling with yuzu chili sauce to kuroge beef sirloin skewers to spicy snow crab, squid and vegetable tempura, who could say no to all that mouthwatering, lip-smacking goodness? ?  *

As if that isn't enough, help yourself to Gonpachi's kuzumochi and vanilla ice cream with kinako and black sugar syrup--because there's always room for dessert (of course!)

Trust us, it's so irresistible, you'll be wiping those plates clean and asking for second servings before you even know what hit you.

Disclaimer: Although the meat and seasonings used for the Muslim-friendly menu at Gonpachi is halal, alcohol is served in the restaurant, so do dine at your own discretion ?

Good things come to those wait: remember to place your orders for the Muslim-friendly menu 3 days in advance. Gonpachi also employs Muslim staff with whom they cooperate to prepare Muslim-friendly menus.

They'll even take pains to prepare disposable cutlery and wooden chopsticks just for you and your dining party. Top marks for such thoughtfulness ?
