Top Gaijin eats or Non-Japanese foods in Tokyo

Savoy, Seirinkan and Napule are all offering a rather different experience, though. If you're craving US-style pizza, I'd go with sonik212's original recommendation of Rocco's. Apparently the Nakameguro Taproom has started serving New Haven-style pizza recently, though I've yet to try it.

Lauderdale in Roppongi (http://www.lauderdale.co.jp) is good, though I'd be lying if I said it actually reminded me of home. I have American friends who insist that Pizzakaya (http://www.pizzakaya.com) is good for US-style pies, though I'd much rather go and get the Italian version elsewhere.

If anybody knows where to get a good cheese pasty like they make them in Blighty, I'd be very interested to hear about it.

Very spicy food in Tokyo

The ramen place was Mouko Tanmen Nakamoto (http://www.moukotanmen-nakamoto.com/). They've got branches all over Tokyo, and the Hokkyoku Ramen is pretty firey.

Grab and go espresso in Tokyo?

I've only been there once, but I was still enjoying the aftertaste half an hour later. THAT'S what good espresso is.

Veggie restaurants in Tokyo

I'm quite fond of Nagi Shokudo in Shibuya: http://metropolis.co.jp/dining/dining... - good luck finding it if you haven't been there before, though. While you're in the area, Kuumba du Falafel is also amazing, and - as far as I know - totally vegan.

Where to find the spiciest noodles in Tokyo?

That's actually the same place. The full name is Mouko Tanmen Nakamoto. You have permission to be confused.

Japan Board is dead, lets discuss Pizza

I've only ever been there for lunch, but the pizza was the real deal. Proper coffee at the end of the meal, too, which is something far too many places skimp on.

Actually, I just had lunch at a new place in Nakameguro run by Hisanori Yamamoto, who used to work at Napule. Well worth checking out: http://www.da-isa.jp/

I used to go to Esse Due in Akasaka all the time when I worked in the area (http://www.esse-2.com/). Pizzeria GG in Higashi-Nakano is also good, not to mention cheap as chips (http://sanbancho.jp/franchise/pizzeri...).
