The oft-visited Japanese restaurant “Ginza Toyoda” featured in Michelin Guide is located on Namiki-dori in Tokyo’s Ginza.This time I stopped here for lunch.
I recently had lunch at Ginza Kashiwa, a restaurant that opened in April of 2018. Here, diners can enjoy Hinai-Jidori, a premium brand of chicken from Akita Prefecture. It's considered one of the three tastiest varieties of chicken in Japan!
The flagship store for Shiseido, “SHISEIDO THE STORE,” opened in January of 2018. This time, I’ll be having lunch at the 4th floor café of that very building, in “SHISEIDO THE TABLES.”
As expected of the cosmetics brand Shiseido, the café supposedly sells healthy food and drinks that are made with seasonal ingredients.
The historic western-style restaurant first opened in 1903 alongside Hibiya Park. The park’s fountain is located just in front of the restaurant, and it’s also close to the Imperial Palace, so it’s a great place to visit while walking through the area.
Ginza’s A Votre Sante Endo is where you’ll find unorthodox fruit curry and traditional omelet rice under one roof.Read Later
I visited A Votre Sante Endo, a western food restaurant in Ginza, for lunch. Their menu boasted the usuals: pasta, pizza, traditional curry, and various other dishes. But, believe it or not, what this eatery is famous for is its fruit curry and omelet rice! (Yes, you read that correctly!)
Hibiya is a neighborhood in Tokyo known for its cinemas and theaters. In March of 2018, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya opened and I visited a Shanghaiese restaurant called Raika in this building. There are also Raika branches in Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen and Aoyama. All three locations are so popular that it's hard to get in without a reservation.
In business for over 120 years, “Tsukiji Miyagawa Honten” is famous for its historic unagi (eel). This is the main location for the “Miyagawa” restaurants scattered across Japan. This is where I decided to enjoy a somewhat luxurious unagi lunch.
“Zenshutoku” is a Chinese restaurant that serves up authentic Peking duck. Their Peking duck is carefully prepared in the same process, made up of over 50 steps, as that at the famous restaurant “Quanjude.” Zenshutoku’s Ginza location closed over 3 years ago due to a fire, but it was finally able to reopen in November of 2018. I decided to stop by for lunch right away.
