How do you research eateries in Japan?

Quick question, what resources/ website do you use to research eateries in Japan? It doesn’t matter if the resources/ website is in written in Japanese. Best if its a resource used by Japanese and not tourists. The Japan equivalent of Yelp / Google Map reviews/ food forums.

I don’t mind and will walk into random places of course, but sometimes I also want to know if there are some places that I should prefer over the others, whether in big cities or small villages.

Thanks!

Tabelog is quite popular

Gurunabi (“gourmet navigation”) is second to Tabelog in popularity for such things. The site can also be used to help make reservations.

I rely on “tried & tested” printed food guides by writers whom I trust.
