Located in the bustling streets of Shibuya, Gyumon is the perfect place for an authentic yakiniku dinner after a day’s worth of shopping! ? Just choose the cut you prefer and they’ll serve it to you raw and lightly seasoned for you to grill on the charcoal stove. The beef tenderloin, grilled to medium rare is just perfect! ?
