Ganipganop's: Prime Rib soon to hit Sasebo
Opening late March or early April 2008 in Sashikata-Cho near Huis Ten Bosch Ganipganop's will be serving favorite American sandwiches by day M,T,&F, closed W & Th, Specialty dinners on Friday and Saturday night such as Prime Rib and Cajun Chicken Alfredo, deserts like chocolate lava cake. Open for American breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The restaurant will feature imported American food items that aren't served anywhere else near Sasebo. I've had the opportunity to be a sampler for the food going into this restaurant. So far I've had the shrimp po boy (fantastic), Cajun Chicken Alfredo, (AWESOME & SPICEY), Loose Meat Sandwich (couldn't stop eating it) and the Prime Rib (Fine dinning at it's best)! I've also had the Philly Cheese Steak, different than back east, but very good! It had was served on a parmesian cheese bread. I also tried the french toast breakfast. It was truely American homestyle breakfast. The flavors were dead on!
Favorite Dish: Priime Rib... I've had a pre-sampling at the owner's house the other night. Prices will vary greatly depending on which seating you go to. Breakfast and lunch around $10 or so per person.. Friday and Saturday dinners more expensive given what they are serving. Around $40 or so per person, but well worth it for a fine dinning experience! Daytime menu of sandwich service in the little red baskets, but the restaurant will transform into a candlelight fine dinning experience for Friday and Saturday nights. Pricing completely understandable given the import fees, taxes, rent, thought & decoration the owners are putting into this place. It will be like stepping out of Japan for a while & stepping into Sasebo's first true American style restaurant!!!

Windmilll Snackshop: Great Fried rice and cold beer!
Skinny's has been around for a over 20 years.
When you walk into this small and friendly dinner, you may hear the tunes of Jimmy hendrix or the Rolling Stones or Clapton. It's a 8 barstool counter with a couple of boths to sit.
I recommend you first order a beer, and the owner will break out the coldest mug from his freezer and pour you a Asahi beer from the Tap. Mmmmmmmmm!
Most of the customer are the local sailors that are on there way home or local bargirls eating prior to starting there work night.
Small but a great experience to start your Sasebo night!
Favorite Dish: He only has about 15 items on the menu, but they are all so good and so greasy!
Fried rice the specialty, ghioza and the famous BLT are alll great.

donkeys: food to fill you up
the food there is great!...it is a hambugersteak place served to you on a hot plate!...this restaraunt inside displays a more retro 50's look with 50's and 60's music playing and the place is pretty big for a normal restaruant in Japan
Favorite Dish: hambuger steak with cheese served with fries...I usually get the big hamburger steak...and at 4 dollars you can get a drink of coke in a glass almost as big as a trophy!...there side dishes are okay as well as there deserts...unfortunately they only accept japanese yen so make sure you don't carry American money there...

You can find it around town.: Sasebo Delicacy
It is said that the Sasebo is the place where the hamburger was first introduced. This would only mean that Sasebo has created it's own original hamburger which draws visitors around the area to this this little waterfront town just to try out the "Sasebo Burger".
Favorite Dish: Good local burgers.

Street vendor in Saki Town
Favorite Dish: Takoyaki! Most Americans do not know about this Japanese street food at all, but, if you are adventerous, go for it! These are spherical octopus fritters served with a dipping sauce. They make these while you watch and you eat them as hot as you dare. Cooked octopus has the flavor of scallops with a very little bit of toughness.
In Saki Town, there is a place that prepares "okonomiyaki". These are savory pancakes made with fish cake, cabbage and green onions, plus other ingredients. These are prepared right in front of you on teppans by only one person, a Japanese Grandmother! She speaks not a bit of English, but her smile makes you feel like you are family.
Favorite Dish: Okonomiyaki and try the noodle variation, with a Kirin Ichiban! Kampai!
Snack Windmill a.k.a Skinnys: The Greasy Spoon
The best way to describe the food would be Asian Fast Food. The shrimp fried rice and Giyoza are great. The chicken is pretty good too. The inside of the place is less to be desired though. While you're eating you might get a visit by one of the local roaches that live in the restaraunt. The food is pretty good though when you're drunk. They also serve beer which is always a plus for me.
Favorite Dish: The giyoza is great. It's kind of like an eggroll I guess. It's a shell with meat and veggies fried inside. Good stuff if you're not worried about a heart attack.
Skinny's or (SNACK WINDMILL): Skinny's or (SNACK WINDMILL)
He doesn't clean his knife or use a different one when preparing meals. There is a thing called e-coli.... just watch him cook your food. Try to stomach it after thinking about it. Also its cramped as all hell in there. It can't fit more then 10 people.
Favorite Dish: ............ HAH
(It Says COFFEE)Its two stores...
(It Says COFFEE)Its two stores right of the 'love snack' sign
Its a coffee shop that sells alcohol.
Favorite Dish: The breaded fish value meal. Its not really a value meal... but you know how the menu looks in most Japanese chow halls... It tasted great with all the asahi I had drunk down. (update)Asahi aside, everybody I bring there and order meh value meal loves it. Soon alot of people will know about it. The food is beautiful.
Freshness burger: Freshness burger
Favorite Dish: this is a Japanese type Mcdonalds franchise but the burgers are really small but really good and as small as they are they actually fill you up pretty good I can't really say what's on the menu I mean they have Cheese Burgers but I'll tell you what they put alot of cheese on it ah it's good...and they have bacon cheese burgers and just plain hamburgers ...you just have to go there that's all I gotta say...
Momma sons: Momma sons
Favorite Dish: Like I said about skinny's whats not to love about this place, they server basicly the same thing as skinny's except it's a little old lady that runs the place and if skinny's is to busy just walk down the road a little bit and you'll find momma sons
Skinny's (It has another name...
Skinny's (It has another name but I can't remember it but all you have to do is ask someone where skinny's restaurant is and they'll know what your talking about)
Skinny is cool as hell he can speak english very well so if your not very good at Japanese don't worry about it.
Favorite Dish: I like everything on the menu Fried Chicken, BLT, Giyoza, Yokisoba, Chicken, Pork, or beef fried rice you name it this man can cook it
