It’s a section of the building that’s rather lively, especially towards the evening. There’s plenty of outdoor seating, too. If you live or work in the area, it’s a convenient spot to grab lunch or a bite and some drinks for dinner.

Dos Bandidos Platter (¥288)

They’ve been working on perfecting their smoked meats and grill. And from previous visits, the brisket is much improved (it’s delicious) and the ribs, which were good before, are great.

Get the Dos Bandidos Platter (¥288), which comes with two pork ribs, sausage, 150g of brisket, and half a roasted chicken. Served with garlic bread and choice of two sides. There’s an even bigger platter, the Tailgate Party Platter (¥588) for basically double the amount of the Dos Bandidos.

Veggie fried rice side dish. Sides are ¥27 each, including Bandit Slaw, French fries, and garlic bread sticks.

As for the burgers and hotdogs, there’s a short and sweet selection of heavy-hitting sandwiches. The Bandit Burger is particularly good, and there’s also a vegan option with patties from Starfield, a plant-based meat brand based out of Shenzhen. All burgers and hotdogs come with a side dish of your choosing.
