Over the past week or two we had posted stories of eating in Tokyo. Those were about the more formal restaurants. Our other meals were at a mix of casual places – cafes, izakayas, casual food places. Our final story about our 2016 Tokyo trip is a quick summary of the other places that we tried as well as those we would like to visit in the future.
Tea House at Aoyama Flower Market – desserts and tea in a beautiful cafe in a flower shop.
Izakaya An An near Akasaka Mitsuke station
Sangyodo Izakaya near Shibuya Station. We tracked down this place which is listed in Tokyo Time Out magazine’s 101 things to do in Shibuya. It was worth the hunt. From Hachiko Statue, walk into and through Tokyu department store to emerge at a bus depot. Continue walking straight, cross the roads by taking the overhead pedestrian bridge. The izakaya is at the foot of the stairs on the other side.
Food streets around Shinbashi Station. Hokuto ramen and gyoza.
Singapore chicken rice restaurant in Shiodome – complete with Merlion and Tiger beer. KIV for future trip.
Daikanyama is an interesting neighbourhood. Nice atmosphere and lots of cafes and small shops. Deserves a return trip.
Nakameguro – a quiet neighbourhood across the subway station. These cherry trees will bloom and look amazing in spring.
Auxamis Tokyo – French restaurant in Marunouchi Building. High quality French cuisine in a casual setting. Degustation menu costs 8,500 yen.
Eat till the end! Narita Airport Terminal 1 restaurants before passport control. We were happy with the two that we tried, Sushi Yuraku and Dashichazuke – a restaurant serving only rice with tea. There is another small sushi bar inside after immigration that looks good but was crowded.
This concludes our stories about eating in Tokyo in autumn 2016. Thanks for reading.
