SHAKE SHACK

An east coast staple burger joint comes to Tokyo and it is welcomed in full force. With humble beginnings, Shake Shack first started as a hot dog cart at New York Madison Square garden in 2001 and has since become one of New York’s staple burger joints with never ending lines to prove it. When…

DUE ITALIAN

An Italian style Ramen.

The name of this restaurant in Shimbashi might not suggest a Ramen place. Just in case some of you aren’t familiar with the term, ramen is a hot savory Japanese noodle soup dish that is considered an easy lunch or dinner in Japan.

MAME-CHA

If you happen to be looking for a nice lunch spot in the Yurakucho area, consider dropping by Mame-cha located on the 8th floor of the Lumine department store building. Its located under a cinema and relatively new on this floor.

SAVOY

I decided to try this tiny pizza place called Savoy today as I was enjoying a leisurely afternoon stroll in Azabu-juban after many wet Tokyo days. A friend recommended this establishment and so I decided to give it a try.

AHILL

  This restaurant calls itself a “French Teppanyaki” restaurant so I was rather intrigued to find out what that meant. Ahill has a branch in nishi-azabu but I visited the one at the Velvia building in Ginza a few days ago for lunch with some friends.

MERCER BRUNCH.

THE BEST FRENCH TOAST IN TOWN. Brunch everyday is the concept of this cute little restaurant in Roppongi near the Tokyo Midtown establishment. It is relatively new and the cosy design of this establishment has been pulling me in every time I pass by.

BIANCA

When there is a restaurant in town that bears your name,  you are of course obliged to give it a try (and maybe take pictures in front of its sign).

ALOHA TABLE

  I’ve never been to Hawaii and have no idea what Hawaiian food is all about, but I guess it is safe to say that if you are looking for a taste of Hawaii in the Daikanyama area then Aloha Table is the place to go.

ABURA SOBA

Let me introduce you to my new favorite ramen!. I visited their tiny restaurant in Ginza and fell immediately in love. Abura soba’s noodles are different.

KEAT’S HOUSE CAFE

  After the endless stream of guests visiting Tokyo over cherry blossom season and nights of extensive dinners, I was so ready for some healthy food. A friend recommended this place called Keat’s House in Yutenji.

REI-KA-SEN

If you ever get hit by a hunger pang while strolling through Shinjuku’s Takashimaya department store and can’t decide what to eat, Rei-ka-sen, a ‘chinese’ restaurant perched on the 13th floor may be an option.
