Tokyo is a foodie’s haven and nothing less than a paradise for someone like me based in the culinary wasteland of Ruian in China’s Zhejiang Province. During my thirteen days in Japan’s capital, a good chunk of my meals came at Tokyo’s amazing themed cafes, bars & restaurants, where dishes and drinks came served with an often bedazzling dollop of live entertainment. But sometimes you just wanna enjoy dinner without a bikini-clad winged warrior shaking a tambourine in your face. Whatever I was in the mood for Tokyo had me covered from Japanese beefsteak, omelettes and pork cutlets, to the finest sushi and ramen I’ve ever had. There’s also a thriving Indian restaurant scene and a seemingly infinite array of coffee joints, one of which had me actively choosing and enjoying Spam for breakfast!
Enjoying a tipple or three can be a really expensive business in Tokyo, so I took care to choose wisely with a select range of watering holes that give you an extra kick for your Yen. After all, if you’re paying an arm and a leg for that beer, why not have it in a super cool place you’re gonna remember for years to come.
