Tongue de Boracho is a new modern style Japanese pub restaurant in Kitami city that is great for late evening drinks and food and is quite popular with the younger crowd that enjoy small dining items and wine served by the glass.
The menu offers a good selection of inexpensive food items that are all very well presented. The most popular items include an assortment of barbecued foods including beef tongue and Japanese wagyu steak.
For those that are out at night for a glass of wine there is an assortment of cheese and other light foods that go well wine.
Wine: There is a good selection of wine on the menu but if you call ahead of time it may be possible to negotiate bringing your own bottle. I was charged a corkage fee of 1,500 yen to bring my own bottle. A very reasonable charge and quite surprising considering that this establishment is a bar!
