We had a splendid dinner at a restaurant that's said to be the inspiration of Quentin Tarantino for the set of Kill Bill. At the narrow entrance were framed photos of the gaijin owner with celebrities who have dined in the popular restaurant. Gonpachi is located near the corner at Nishi Azabu in the Roppongi district of Tokyo. It is a short bus trip from our hotel and a 10-minute walk away from the Roppongi Station of the Hibiya Line of the Tokyo Metro.
We were greeted with a welcome drink cocktail of sake and enjoyed a dinner consisting of salad, barbecue, soba, and ice cream for dessert. I will feature this dinner in a succeeding post but for now here are a few photos of the place, which was packed with diners considering it was a Monday night.
