Service: Very friendly and great explanations
Equipment and facilities: Great overall cleanliness. Superb Washroom
Strong points: Great use of local meats and Vegetables. Very healthy BBQ and brochettes. Excellent reasonable wine list.
Brochette means “Kushiyaki/串焼き” in Japanese. One could say they mainly serve BBQ-style meat and vegetables on skewers for dinner. But it is not limited to that. They actually serve very reasonable full lunches!
Located along a very busy street in Shizuoka City, it is actually owned by a Driving School Company! Talk about diversifying!
Especially at lunch have a good look at the menu board outside!
But it is always a good idea to reserve as the place gets full within 30 minutes!
Once inside you will be handed very practical menus with photographs and clear price indications!
They also a special bargain lunch for every day of the week!
Brochette is very much a bistro-style establishment with many tables, one private room and 2 seats at a counter.
And it is entirely non-smoking at lunch time!
Chef Yoshinori Yanagisawa/柳沢義憲 ably helped by Sommelier Tomohiro Sugiyama/杉山友啓 prepares food with carefully selected vegetables and meat mainly from Shizuoka Prefecture!
A single look at the refrigerated display will convince you!
I love Japanese-style open hamburgers! They call them “Hambaagu” here!
So I opted for the 100% beef home-made hambaagu steak lunch set at a very reasonable price!
Onion consomme soup and fresh vegetable salad.
French bread and olive oil.
You can ask for plain rice instead.
The open hamburger with a demi-glace onion sauce and three kinds of vegetables served sizzling hot on its thick iron plate!
Not only the Japanese, but any Westerner will love mixing the mashed potato with the delicious sauce!
And it is so reasonable!
Look forward to the dinner report!
