Tokyo, Meguro-ku, Higashiyama 2-1-1
Kan is a modern japanese Izakaya in a sophisticated setting. The long counter-table make it interesting to interact with the chef and witness the whole cooking process. It’s one of my favorite restaurant for a dinner with clients or friends.
Tokyo, Meguro-ku, Higashiyama 1-8-6 #109
This upscale Izakaya offers a great dinning experience with possibility to book one of their few private rooms for an intimate dinner with a small group of friends or out-of-town guest. I particularly recommend their sashimi and the off-menu Soba.
Tokyo, Shibuya-ku, Sendagaya 3-63-1
AFURI ramen has quickly become one of the best ramen shop in town. The Harajuku branch is definitely my go-to spot for a quick noodle fix. I usually order the seasonal AFURI’s suggestion, their Yuzu-style ramen is perfect for a hot Tokyo summer night.
Tokyo, Setagaya-ku, Daizawa 3-12-26
Kantera is my favorite Korean BBQ restaurant here in Tokyo. It’s a bit of a drive from Shibuya but definitely worth the ride. Kantera offers a great selection of Wagyu beef and I particularly enjoy their boneless short ribs. The restaurant itself is very well-designed and they also have a nice patio with outdoor tables.
Tokyo, Shibuya-ku, Udagawacho 11-2
French food and jazz music! The oversized Niçoise salad are very good and their Plat du Jour selection is always on point. Perfect for a lunch near my office.
