Sushi Iwa is arguably one of the most talked about sushi restaurants in Tokyo. The One Michelin Star restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo, has an elusive shop front and an even more “exclusive” reservation list.
It took us numerous attempts over a period of two years before we finally succeeded in scoring two seats on one of those weekday afternoons for lunch.
So, are they really worth all the hype? You will find out in a while.
UberEATS has finally launched in Tokyo, Japan! We were invited to the launch of the app in Tokyo and had a full experience of UberEATS, from tap to table.
While UberEATS has been around in Singapore for awhile, this launch in Japan is the 8th country and 34th city added to their fast-growing and extensive list.
Their mission is simple – to make eating well effortless at anytime for anyone. The efficiency of tapping on your smart device and having a meal or snack delivered right to your doorstep is our idea of convenience. In Tokyo, 150 restaurant partners have partnered up with UberEATS for this launch and there will definitely be gradual expansion in time to come.
Launched on 29 September 2016, UberEATS has already been a hit with the local crowd. Tokyo is a unique city as it has a strong dining culture. UberEATS in Tokyo is so diverse because you can get anything from a simple Acai Bowl to a full on restaurant-quality meal from Michelin-starred restaurants such as SOUGO.
Japanese food in Tokyo is one-of-a-kind experience and is a leisure on a whole different level. Sushi and sashimi are so fresh that you will never see Japanese food in the same light ever again. And the authenticity is one that you do not get as with eating local food at any other country. For one, it is beyond atmospheric that, once again, eating Japanese food in Japan will change your life altogether – in every good way, of course.
People always speak of how expensive Japanese food is and how the price tags deter them from feasting when in Japan. It is not true. We have sussed out 4 Affordable Sushi Restaurants in Tokyo that you can try without breaking the bank.
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.
