Tokyo Food Porn!

I was thinking about what photos I should share next from our Tokyo trip for this post and realised that some of my best memories from the trip was the food! All the amazing food! So get ready to be hungry! My bowl of ramen with charcoal grilled pork and yuzu welcomes you…

Huge gyoza from a small place in Sky Tree!

This burger was from a Hawaiian restaurant in Lumine Est, Shinjuku. The restaurant was really cool with painted blue skies and a laid back atmosphere.

This is supposed to be the best gyoza in Harajuku. Usually the line was down the street but we arrived this night at the perfect time – no line! And they really did live up to the hype, seriously delicious!

We couldn’t read anything on this menu and just ended up picking from the couple of things with pictures. It ended up being really yummy Chinese food! This was a super spicy, sizzling pot of tofu! We stumbled upon this place in DiverCity, Odaiba.

My SO is a fan of Gundam so our first stop in Akihabara was the cafe! Everything was themed which was cool! I don’t know what those noodle type things ended up being but the whole thing was really good. Especially the garlic bread. ;)

Tokyo Banana! They are little banana cakes with cream inside. These ones had chocolate cream inside and leopard spots on the outside!

Of course we had a number of crepes, haha. This is my SO’s first one. It has ice cream and cheesecake inside!

Drinks from Milky Way Cafe in Ikebukuro. Everything here is star themed, even the shape of glasses!

Cute Moomin meal from the Moomin Cafe and Bakery at Sky Tree! I had to add that they seat a plushie Moomin toy with you as you eat and when you leave they say kiitos (Finnish for goodbye) to you in the cutest way.

Gyoza, ramen and spicy chicken in adorable bowls was a random place in Lumine Est. It was all about fresh vegetables and produce! The curry was a curry restaurant in Hamamatsucho that had English menus and catered for salary men.

A penguin parfait that I got at the Sumika Aquarium. We could sit and watch the penguins in their pool right in front of us! You had to be carful because they kept splashing people over the side, hehe. The tempura was from a great chain, this one in Harajuku, that we visited probably 4 times – it’s that good! They give you delicious free tea and have an excellent sauce to add to your bowl brimming with fried goodness!

Ohhh looking over all these just makes me want to go back right. now! So much deliciousness! What I’ve learnt through eating all this food is not to feel anxious about going into random restaurants or ordering without knowing the language. Just do it and keep an open mind of what you get!
