Food Adventures In Tokyo

From now on, I’m going to try my best to throw out some more travel post since I’ve had a lot of great experiences and photos that I’d love to share with you. If you didn’t notice last Sunday I had a post on my visit to Kanagawa, so I’m going to stick with this Japan series just for a bit. As I was looking at my photos for inspiration, I noticed a vast amount of food photos. It’s insanely ridiculous how many food shots I took while I was in Tokyo – and even funnier how much I ate yet I lost 10 pounds (about 4.5 kg) while my 3 week stay there. Weird huh? So if you’re feeling hungry right now it may not be the best time to take a look at these photos. Otherwise enjoy 🙂

By the way, I narrowed this down as much as I could!

Japanese take their presentation seriously.

Belgium waffles were the “thing” when I was there.

Go to an Italian restaurant in Tokyo and this is what you get…

Delicious udon! Lots of love for eggs in their food there.

Izakaya time – chopped-up squid legs anyone?

I never thought about mixing tamago (egg) and kimchi (spicy Korean pickled cabbage) together until I saw this.

Can never go wrong with yakitori (grilled skewer) and some sake (Japanese alcohol).

Why is it that everywhere but North America has amazing and freshly packaged food?? We need to step up our game people!

If I recall, I remember paying 450円, which is about $4.70 here.

A very traditional Japanese dish that is made for the New Year.

I had to eat this meal before putting on the kimono. If you have worn a kimono before you would know what I’m talking about!

No trip to Japan would be complete without trying the most delicious sushi ever. Nothing has ever compared since…

*For food porn purposes only*

Super fluffy caramel drizzled green tea cake with red bean on top.

The making of a super delicious okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake).

Alice and Wonderland themed restaurant…not the best food but it’s all about the experience!

Curry udon is life.

I ended my trip the perfect way, shabu-shabu’ing in good company.

    I’m not a big fan of asian food, I’ve always found it very different (how it looks, the ingredients, the soups) however I do enjoy sushi and some asian rices. I’d love to go there but I guess I’ll have some trouble with the food.

    • It really depends where you eat it. Often americanized asian food taste extremely odd and is not even close to being true to the authentic taste, but that goes with all cultural food. There’s certain foods I thought I didn’t like until I tried it! A lot of the Japanese food here that you see I didn’t even know about until my Japanese friends introduced me to it. It helps to have friends from the culture so they can also help you find the best restaurants 🙂

  2. Love this post! I was drooling over the food pictures 🙂
