New crop rice, fish, small plates and miso soup. What else I could ask for? the definition of J-soul food. They proudly harvest their own rice.
Yoyogi and Omotesando
I tell you my secret. The 4,000 yen lunch special will make your day. Unvarnished white wooden counter oh so smooth.
Fun Loud Yummy Freestyle east meets west kinda Seafood place. NY pizza place like wall full of snap shots with celebrity.
Urban solarium in the middle of busy Harajuku. I dream about their home made Pot de crème. Hope you do too.
Fruit Parlor Fukunaga
Feels like you are in your aunt's kitchen. Japanese version of sofa fountain. Seasonal fruit parfait will blow your mind.
Yakitori + Izakaya = Happy stomach
Fresh seasonal ingredients fried in their secret crystal clear sesame oil. Sit at the counter to witness the chef's delicate works.
The definition of Power Breakfast. Forget about being in line for sushi for 5 hours. Fried mackerel and oyster. Limited house made curry over rice.
Classic love affair with nicely done cocktails.
Tonkatsu restaurant circa 1927. Golden fried pork, cabbage, rice and miso soup. What else could I ask for?
The OG no frill juice stand. Walk along the ally and pay a pilgrimage to Ozawa Fruit for another cup of again, juice.
Affordable amazing quality sushi. Can be quick meal or just a snack. Yes, sushi can be a snack.
Most people go to fancy dinners here, we like it for sitting up at the bar, making friends with the bartender, and having a cocktail.
Cafe de l'ambre
Time stops here. Bring your book. Pretend you are local. Smell hand drip coffee. Try coffee jelly (you have no idea).
Been there once. Worth the hype.
Best Neapolitan pizza Margherita or Marinara. Polpetta (meat ball) from antipasti is a great addition.
In Tokyo's oldest Korea town. Sul lung tan for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Simply one of the best. Open 24 hours.
