Sunday Dinner In Tokyo

April 21, 2013

Our first visit to Tokyo and we are absolute tourists, doing an open bus tour to get our bearings – not recommended – and just going with the flow. We stumbled into a gem of a place called Tokyu Food Show in Shibuya and stayed for hours, sampling food and sake, and just walking around with our mouths open ( literally!)…. We thought we’d been to some pretty good places in the world, but today we think this one is the best, maybe because of it’s cuteness in packaging and detail, and variety of produce. We were tired and hungry at the end of the day, so decided to take dinner home. Unable to communicate in Japanese I  purchased this delicious rice with mince and vegetables dish sold in a terracotta pot and bring it back to the hotel. It stayed hot for two hours.

The happy exhausted diner. The verdict – delicious, and I’d do it again to get another bowl!

    Wow looks amazing! They would certainly teach our farmer’s markets a thing or two!

    Mary we miss you! The kids missed you on Sunday for breakfast. Glad to see you are in BCN – Tokyo sounds fab and I think you seem to have done so much because there is so much to see. Love you xx
