The Best Places to Eat in Tokyo

submitted on 13 March 2023 by

Tokyo - the land of sushi, ramen, and endless culinary adventures. As a tourist, it can be overwhelming to navigate the city and figure out where to go beyond the typical tourist traps. But fear not, my fellow foodies, for I have scoured the city and found some of the best places to eat in Tokyo that are off the beaten path.

First up, let's talk about Tsukiji Outer Market. This bustling marketplace is the perfect place to try some of Tokyo's freshest seafood. From grilled squid to tuna sashimi, there's no shortage of delicious seafood dishes to try. And the best part? You can watch as the vendors expertly prepare your meal right in front of you. But beware - the crowds can be intense, so make sure to arrive early to beat the rush.

Next on our list is Tonkatsu Tonki in Meguro. This unassuming spot serves up some of the best tonkatsu (breaded and deep-fried pork cutlets) in the city. The menu is simple - just choose your cutlet size and sauce - but the flavor is anything but. And the crispy, golden-brown exterior is the stuff of dreams. Pro tip: make sure to try the tonkatsu sandwich for a portable, handheld version of this delicious dish.

For a taste of Tokyo's famous ramen, head to Menya Musashi in Shinjuku. This cozy spot is tucked away in a back alley, but the line out the door is a testament to its popularity. The broth is rich and flavorful, the noodles are perfectly chewy, and the pork belly is melt-in-your-mouth tender. And for those who like their ramen with a little extra heat, try the spicy ramen - it's not for the faint of heart.

If you're looking for something a little different, head to Asakusa for some tempura at Daikokuya Tempura. This spot has been serving up crispy, golden tempura for over a century, and it's not hard to see why. The menu features everything from shrimp to eggplant to sweet potato, all expertly fried to perfection. And don't forget to try the tempura ice cream for a sweet and savory twist.

And last but not least, let's talk about dessert. Tokyo is home to some of the most delicious sweets in the world, and one of the best spots is Higashiya in Ginza. This elegant tea house serves up traditional Japanese sweets that are almost too beautiful to eat. From delicate mochi to sweet red bean paste, every bite is a work of art. And the green tea is the perfect accompaniment to these delicate treats.

So there you have it - a few of the best places to eat in Tokyo that are off the tourist trail. And while the typical tourist spots are definitely worth checking out, sometimes it's the hidden gems that leave the biggest impression. So go forth, my fellow foodies, and discover all that this culinary wonderland has to offer. And don't forget to bring your sense of humor (and your appetite).
