Avoseta, Roppongi

Avoseta, a newly opened fancy but causal restaurant located in Roppongi Hills. A light warm atmosphere overlooking Keyakizaka street, perfect for a date night or grab drinks before dinner. However, we found the food mediocre. We ordered  the following dishes. — Avocado toast (600¥) for appetizer — Salami platter (1200¥) — […]

Piccolo Grande, Azabujuban

I beleive that Italian is one of those cuisines where no matter how fancy the restaurant, one should feel comfortable walking in, finding a table and enjoying a hearty meal. Piccolo Grande is a nice cosy local Italian restaurant located in Azabujuban, Tokyo. It has the feel of neighborhood restaurant […]

Cucina Hirata, Azabujuban

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 […]

Bamboo, Omotesando

Walking the beautiful Omotesando street, we spotted this cute little place just off the main avenue lined up with high-brand stores in a serene location with beautiful terrace seats and a cozy but fancy interior. My little girls were in a mood for pizza 🍕 so we ordered for a […]
