Foodie Files: Tokyo Eats

Posted on 21 August 2017

In case you haven't noticed, we're serious Japanophiles. Tokyo is always a good idea, not just because it's one of the coolest trendsetting cities. The ultra modern sits right next to tradition, from design, culture, technology to food of course! Here are a few of our current favourite Tokyo eats.


Hailing from Sydney, bills Omotosando does great brunch food and atmosphere. Just get there early because everyone wants in.
Must order: Ricotta hotcakes, warm bananas and honeycomb butter

Nestled among the greenery of the charming Daikanyama T-Site complex, this place makes you feel bookworm chic with Tsutaya bookstore right next door.
Must order: Classic Buttermilk pancakes
Address: Daikanyama T-Site Garden, 16-15 Sarugakucho, Shibuya

Bar Piano
One of those quirky Tokyo experiences not to be missed. It's the tiniest, most stuffed-animal head and chandelier filled bar you'll ever go to.
