    Stamina Taro is an all-you-can-eat restaurant chain in Japan. In this chain are their two affordable all-you-can-eat restaurants, Stamina Taro and Stamina Taro NEXT. Both have the same menu; the differences are that Stamina Taro NEXT includes all-you-can-drink while Stamina Taro doesn’t include drinks in their all-you-can-eat menu, meaning there is an additional fee for drinks. This, of course, makes the price differ slightly; the 60-minute course is offered by Stamina Taro NEXT only.

    There are more than 100 different dishes featured on the menu offered by both Stamina Taro and Stamina Taro NEXT. This article, however, will focus mainly on the meat dishes.

    In Stamina Taro, you can choose from their meat set menus. All of the meat is raw and each table is equipped with grills so you can cook it by yourself in the traditional yakiniku way. The staff prepares and serves all dishes to you when you select your desired set so you don’t need to worry about choosing from the many different dishes available. When it’s served, grab the tongs and get cooking!

    Their meat selections consist of pork, beef, chicken steak, and pork and beef offal. There are two types of seasonings for the meat: sweet and salty. Sometimes, there is also spicy sauce for those who prefer a sauce with a kick. If you’d like a side dish, you can choose onion, bell pepper, or small saltwater fish too. Some scallops and clams are also provided in case you want to grill them, too.

    Other than those, they have sushi, Chinese food, ramen, curry, takoyaki, salad, and even desserts like cakes, cream puffs, ice cream, and candy. In Stamina Taro, you can even make your own cotton candy with a machine you normally see used in cotton candy shops.
