Do you remember Julia Roberts eating delicious pizza in the Eat Pray Love movie? In the movie, she is visiting Naples and she eats pizza from L’Antica Pizzaria da Michele until she can’t fit into her jeans. Surprisingly, you can eat the same pizza (minus Julia Roberts) near Ebisu station in Tokyo.
I’ve been in Okayama for 10 years and I am still waiting for a good soul to open a banh mi shop. On my last trip to Tokyo, the Ebisu Banh Mi Bakery just happened to be located right next door to my hotel is Ebisu, so I could simply not resist.
Pizza Slice which is located in Shibuya between Shibuya and Ebisu station is the perfect pizza fix if you are nostalgic of sliced pizza.
I finally made it to Taco Bell in Tokyo! I’ve been having a serious case of MOFO since Taco Bell came back to Japan in 2015 .
During my latest visit to Tokyo, I was craving something a little bit different and decided to give Dhaba India South Indian Restaurant a try since it was conveniently located near Tokyo Station.
Abura soba can be translated to “oil noodles” and it’s a great meal for anybody not thinking too hard about their own arteries getting slowly clogged down. My co-worker strongly recommended Kasuga-Tei when I recently visited Tokyo. I had a meeting near Tokyo Station and the shop in Akihabara was the nearest one.
Hocus Pocus / Little Nap Coffee Stand is a minimalist Donuts & Coffee shop that was conveniently located in front of the conference I attended in Tokyo. It’s the first time I visited this area of Tokyo which is a short distance from National Diet and the Imperial Palace.
Exploring Tokyo on a bicycle proved to be a great way to discover places I would probably never get to see otherwise. After grabbing lunch in from of the main gate of Yasakuni shrine, I headed back toward my hotel in Akasaka and stopped at Jupiters Coffee Roasters ジュピターズ コーヒー ロースターズ.
I was siphoning the WIFI connection at Fuglen when I came upon a tweet about C.O.D. where the author mentioned he ate the best chili dog. My plan to eat at Ahiru wine bar had failed and a chili dog sounded like an amazing idea.
With a bit time on my hands, I let my feet and my stomach guide me in the back streets of Shibuya. I made a right turn up a small hilly alley and I found Kiraku next to somekind of sex shop.
Chatei Hatou (茶亭羽當) is one of these coffee shop that keeps popping up in the coffee press. The shop is only a few minutes away from the iconic Shibuya crossing.
