토키바야마 (이태원) – This place you will never find unless someone tells you to come here. It’s hidden up an alley in the back alleys of Itaewon. It’s up on the hill and to the right past Rocka Doodle (fantastic Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich shop).

It is a Japanese restaurant where you can enjoy various course menus (W90,000, W65,000, etc.) or order various dishes a la carte. The sushi chef owner was a former sumo wrestler.

Pictured below are the W90,000 Matsu course menu items. I will definitely be back here for sure. Yummy!
