This restaurant, situated down a Shinjuku alleyway, is a playground for adventurous eaters — and I mean really adventurous. They serve something called “stamina” cuisine: a general term for Japanese foods thought to bring energy and vitality — often not-so-subtly alluding to bedroom stamina for gentlemen.
On another topic entirely, this restaurant’s name translates to “Morning Wood”…
If you’re in the mood for a stamina-boosting challenge, you can sample some really out-there dishes like raw frog, raw cow heart, and grilled salamander! If that all sounds very tame to you, perhaps you want to try the next level up — pig testicles or penis.
Okay, maybe that would be taking it a little too far. If so, you’ll be happy to know they also offer some delicious conventional dishes for you to fill up on after pushing your culinary boundaries to their limit. These include hotpot, grilled beef, and even deer and boar, at times.
Take a look above the counter and you’ll see a load of turtle shells. These are all signed by past customers who ordered the turtle hotpot, and had their trophy hung up on the wall after they finished.
No matter where you draw the line with adventurous dining, you’re sure to find a delicious dish to suit you at Asadachi in Shinjuku.
