Reissure

If you come to this place, you must try their 3D latte art!  You need to pay extra for the 3D latte art (I had a cup of cappuccino (650yen) + 3D latte art (additional 500yen)), but it is definitely worth it.  If you want customized latte art, be prepared to show a picture to the server.  They will make your latte, based on the picture you have!  You can also have lunch there as well! Their food was good but the portion was a bit small.

Note:

  • They accept CASH ONLY!
  • They don’t take reservations.
  • Each person must order 1 drink.
  • Cost: ¥1,000 – ¥2,000

It was cold and snowing when I went to Luke’s Lobster, but their lobster rolls made my day better!  Although it was not very crowded when I visited, my friend told me that you have to be in line for more than an hour sometimes…  It is a bit overpriced in my opinion, but the amount of lobster meat is generous.  The bun itself is pretty delicious with a warm, crispy outer layer.

Note:

  • Buy it over the counter.
  • There are a few seats outside, but most seem to stand and eat as quick meal.
  • If you are there at popular times, be prepared to wait in line.
  • Cost: ¥950 – ¥2,000

Address:

6-7-1 Jingumae, Shibuya, Tokyo

Although this place is not really known by tourists, this place is popular for Japanese people.  If you want to escape from Tokyo’s craziness and relax, this place might be a good choice for your lunch spot, and the atmosphere might remind you of Kyoto.  Their interior is also amazing with 2 long commuter table facing a small Zen garden.  I had ¥2,800 course lunch, and that includes appetizers, 2 main dishes, and dessert.

  • Besides the lunch course, they have 2 courses; 5,000yen or 8,000yen.

Eddy’s Ice Cream

Eddy’s Ice Cream, located in Harajuku is the cutest ice cream I ever found in my life!  The shop is all decorated in pink color, so everywhere is literally a photo spot!  No matter what spot you choose to take your photos, it will look amazing in Eddy’s Ice Cream.  The ice cream is also creamy and delicious. There are two flavors; vanilla and strawberry. I had vanilla, and it was so milky! For your ice cream, you can choose between vanilla, strawberry, or mix, and you can put any toppings you want!

Note:

  • The shop gets super crowded in the afternoon, so I recommend you to visit for the morning or just before closing time, especially if you want to take some photos.
  • They accept CASH ONLY.
  • Cost: ¥900 – ¥1,400

There are about 234 Michelin Stars restaurants in Tokyo, and Craftale is one of them. However, what differentiates this restaurant is their creativity and cost performance.  Each dish was presented with the beauty of the plating or the surprising combinations of flavors.  Every plate was phenomenal, but my absolute favorite was the steak! They cooked the beef perfectly. Also the atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable… you can even see beautiful cherry blossoms from the window in spring. I definitely recommend here for the best places to eat in Tokyo 🙂
