El Borracho, a Fukuoka-based Mexican restaurant with shops throughout the city as well as Tokyo (and even Cancun!) has added a craft beer bar and grill to its lineup: Fukuoka Craft. Located in the heart of Daimyo, the new shop, which just opened this July, has an open kitchen visible from the street that serves up Mexican BBQ, craft tequila and 10 kinds of craft beer on tap. For a quick bite, try the carnitas—pulled pork tacos topped with guacamole. Prefer dining more leisurely? Try the BBQ platter. An on-site craft beer brewery is slated to open next spring.
Menu: Mexican BBQ platter ¥1,180, carnitas ¥380, lamb chop ¥380, kale salad ¥680, edamame roasted in habanero ¥580, seafood burrito of the day ¥880, craft beer ¥430~, craft beer flight (4 glasses) ¥980, homemade lemon sour ¥500, craft tequila (Shizuku Blanco) ¥430/30ml
