Tonkatsu Maisen, Omotesando

D72_4879

Tonkatsu is a breaded and deep fried pork cutlet, usually served with a thick, tangy sauce (“Tonkatsu sauce”), shredded cabbage, and miso soup. Inspired by European cuisine, it first appeared in the late 1800′s in a Western-food restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo.

These days, Maisen in Tokyo is pretty universally acknowledged as one of the best tonkatsu houses in the city. Their signature dish is the kurobuta tonkatsu (literally “black pork,” also known as Berkshire pork in the US). Kurobuta is known for its high fat content and intense, juicy flavor.

The restaurant is uniquely situated inside a former World War II public bathhouse. In fact, the main dining room (pictured above) was once the changing room, complete with some of the original architectural details in the high ceilings.

Robot Resutaurant, Shinjuku

Every night in a basement in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district, bikini-clad women stage mock battles using enormous robots – though it’s more steroid-enhanced fairground attraction than modern-day Gundam. Fitted out at a cost of ¥10 billion, Robot Restaurant looks like something straight out of Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void, all migraine-inducing neon, video screens and mirrors.

Omotesando Koffee, Omotesando

Omotesando Koffee is a quaint coffee shop located in a residential neighborhood between Omotesando and Gaienmae. It’s literally someone’s home which has been converted into a coffee shop, but it serves playful and delicious coffee. The very minimal zen-like decor and well designed space makes this one of those places you’ll definitely want to try if you’re a coffee lover.
