Antonio Inoki Sakaba

By Weekender Editor

Inspired by Antonio Inoki, a legendary pro wrestler, who even won a match against Muhammed Ali in 1976, is the inspiration for this bar — complete with a museum — featuring live shows and a Janken (Rock, Paper, Scissors) championship, where the winner gets to wear Inoki’s champion belt.

Most of the food offered at Antonio Inoki Sakaba is mega-sized (with smaller portions available). Highlights include the Michinoku Driver, a super thick Sendai-style gyutan, and the Antonio Ribs, grilled to perfection in a rotisserie oven in-store.

Inoki himself also occasionally drops by, so if you are lucky, you might even have a chance to see the legend in person.

Address: 1F Denen Bldg., 4-1-13 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo
