Japan is home to many remarkable food and Japanese cuisine is something that the world loves. We’ve got sushi and sashimi, ramen and udon, omu rice and tonkatsu.
And the latest dish that people in Tokyo are crazy about is gyukatsu – deep-fried breaded beef cutlet. It is very much like the tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet) that we are all familiar with.
Well, because we are such fans of Japanese cuisine, we had to give gyukatsu a go, of course. Here’s where you can try the famous gyukatsu in Tokyo – Gyukatsu Motomura.
We had one of our best Japanese meals this year at Ginza Yoshihiro.
And this is one new Japanese restaurant in town that you definitely must know about. With over 30 years of history, Ginza Yoshihiro first started their family legacy at Ginza, Tokyo. Priding themselves on their signature specialty oden, the Japanese restaurant enjoys great popularity and is now spreading the love of Japanese food in Singapore.
Ginza Yoshihiro at Marina Mandarin Hotel is everything we want in an authentic Japanese restaurant, and if not, more. We dare say it is one of the best new Japanese restaurants in Singapore.

Tokyo has one of the highest number of Michelin Starred restaurants, and while we ate at several of the well-known establishments in the city, our favourite meal was, however, at Uoriki Kaisen Sushi, a humble and small sushi bar within the supermarket at the basement of Tokyu’s department store in Shibuya.
Uoriki Kaisen Sushi does not have any Michelin stars, nor is it extremely popular. But it serves exceptionally fresh sushi and sashimi at ridiculously cheap prices. It is a hidden gem in Tokyo, and I wholeheartedly recommend this place when you are looking for a place to eat in Shibuya.
Whenever I travel to a new city, I always make it my mission to look for good coffee joints, and my recent trip to Tokyo was no exception. We managed to check out many popular cafes that serve speciality coffee in the Capital city.
