Top Gaijin eats or Non-Japanese foods in Tokyo

Here are some place I've tried ordering from (they both take Paypal):

Meat Guy - Has a wide variety of unique meats, sausages, tortillas, frozen cheesecakes (very evil :)

The Flying Pig - Costco items delivered locally or personal import (PI).

They use to have refried beans locally but now they are PI. But I'd get a case with their 40 pack of tortillas to make burritos for the office. Just simple taco seasoning with some fresh garlic mashed up. Add water and sitr on low for a couple hours. Add oil if the meat didn't have a lot of fat in it.

Here are two place I've tried -

Dc Donald - Their friend chicken has a great crunch and the yangmyeom chicken is excellent. You order by either a full or half chicken. Fried gizzards is also another good one for those that miss them.

Chckholic - It's a little different from the other shop but also really good. The yangmyeom comes with white-yellow sauce to help with the heat. It's stick messy goodness.

Both place deliver locally and do take out. KFC's got absolutely nothing on these places. Just a warning that both places are Very addicting!

I found an interesting Chinese grocery shop in the same Shin-Okubo/Okubo area. In the basement they have all the dry goods stuffs. The real find was the sunflower seeds. They have a number of varieties and for an old school sunflower seed junkie, it was nice to find something local. Of course the tastes are a little different than the normal salt flavor back home but I found one brand i really like.

Their website is here in Chinese and Japanese www.kkshop.jp They don't mention clearly about the shop but it's open til midnight. On the 2nd floor they have frozen goods (just stay away from the wan-chan special meat pack :)

If you looking some great Vietnamese "banh mi" sandwiches then I highly recommend. I've been going here since they opened in Jan of 2011. The one to get is the ham and liver pate for 500 yen (add avocados for 70 yen extra - goes well with the creaminess of the pate). They make everything themselves, and that ham isn't what you normal see. It's two types of cured ham. I thought the sandwiches I use to get in Seattle were good but this place is excellent.
