Motsunabe is one of the most divisive Japanese dishes - people tend to either love or loathe it, and very few fall in the middle of those two extremes.
Nabe refers to a type of Japanese hot pot, a huge stew that is meant to be shared with friends, and motsunabe is a type of offal hot pot originating in Fukuoka, crammed full of green onions, bean sprouts, and beef intestines.
Yamanaka is widely regarded as the best place in town to sample this local delicacy, as it uses high-quality ingredients and is prepared in a distinct hakata (pork bone) broth. All nabes are meant to be shared by at least two people, so be sure to find someone else with a similar palate to you.
This branch of Yamanaka is on the second floor of the Sunny Akasaka shop.
