It may look like
just another Tokyo
craft-beer bar, but
Vector serves up an
appealing menu of
beef-tongue dishes
and other solid
izakaya fare, making
it a popular dining
destination as well
as a bar. The
charcoal-grilled
sumibiyaki tongue
(Y980) in particular
is a crowd favorite
- slightly chewy and
cut a bit thinner
than average, with a
nice charcoal-in-
fused flavor that's
complemented by the
accompanying wasabi
and crunchy pickled
hakusai.

There's plenty more
tongue in store -
tongue and mushroom
ajillo, two kinds of
tongue meatballs,
tongue demiglace
stew, home-made
tongue ham, tongue
cutlet and menchi-
katsu (deep-fried
minced tongue). The
tongue rillettes
(Y480) are a good
quick-starter dish
while you're waiting
for your grilled and
fried items.

Vector is also one
of the better craft
beer bars in town,
with ten taps dis-
pensing a well-cho-
sen selection from
Japanese and US
small breweries, all
at very reasonable
prices. Three-beer
tasting sets (Y1000)
are a great way to
compare different
breweries and
styles, and the
bar's convenient
late-night hours are
another bonus. Bud-
get around Y3500 for
dinner and drinks.
