Akasaka

Lyla,Akasaka (French)

Making a pilgrimage to the food mecca that is TOKYO could be difficult, and too often there are simple too many well-reviewed restaurants falling short of expectations. Honestly, ‘LYLA’ is not one of them. On the contrary it is a beautiful cosy, well hidden and not easy to find hidden […]

Hocus Pocus, Nagatacho

”Hocus Pocus” means magic in English. The shop is just all about that! Doughnuts may not be the healthiest option to eat, but they might just be what your brain needs. They have an ample amount of sugar which is great for concentration. Among the places in Japan which serve […]

The Bar code name Mixology, Akasaka

Code Name Mixology, Akasaka has everything you’re looking for in a grown-up bar: elegant decor, flatteringly dim lights, and expertly crafted cocktails, and surprisingly great collection of whiskey. The smoky chocolate martini is their specialty you must try. Mixology bartenders use this special tool to smoke the drinks and food […]

Bistecca, Akasaka

Goo Italiano Bistecca is a reasonably priced bistro on Akasaka Dori with a steak restaurant grafted on to it. Bistecca Akasaka has definitely been my go-to place for lunch with friends, family or just for some indulgence all by myself. They do some good pastas, vegetarian salad  and steaks but […]

This restaurant ‘Nomad Grill Lounge’ is just about 15 min walking distance from our house in Akasaka. Realizing Japanese hospitality and cuisine you can only […]

Sunaba, Toranomon

This two-story wooden building commands a corner on a Toranomon back street where it feels like time has stopped. Inside, the brightly lit interior gives the restaurant a more modern feel—standard tables and chairs are on the first floor and tatami seating on the second. The menu is classic soba, […]

Gyoza It, Akasaka

This ‘Gyoza’  restaurant is conveniently located in Akasaka (Tokyo) 1 min walk from Akasaka metro station.The stylish restaurant adds a modern twist to the gyoza — which is something of a Japanese soul food — pairing different styles of dumplings with wine and champagne in a chic setting. The interior […]

Djangos, Akasaka

This small neighbourhood spot ‘Djangos’ located in between Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka severs good, Californian style cuisine and reasonably priced New World wines. Their menu/food is hard to categorise. I think its easiest to call it ‘international’ – a mixture of Japanese, Italian and Californian. The great thing about this […]

Bar Watershed, Akasaka

BAR WATERSHED I loved grape juice,soda,and grape candy as a kid. As an adult I kind of left them behind because they were too sweet. Then, one day, I discovered that adding some booze fixed that problem. Now finally Bar Watershed I get to enjoy this “Purple Nagano” cocktail and I […]
