In a 20-hour layover at NRT this Saturday, I will attempt to eat at as many exciting places as possible. Since neither my budget nor time would allow for a dinner, what Lunch Kaiseki restaurants in Tokyo would you recommend? My budget is around 5000 yen per person.
It would be cherry on top if it could be reached easily by public transport...
Several that I have found so far are:
After eating at XOCO and having their chocolate+churros, I've been yearning for a good cup of semi-dark drinking chocolate. From experience, i like drinking ~70% and eating ~80%, but as i'm sure you all know, the percentage doesn't tell you nearly as much as actually trying them! Which is why I am turning to you all for help!
It would be nice to have some quality pastries to accompany the chocolate, but I can literally just drink cups after cups of gooey chocolate by themselves.
I take public transit, and i'm willing to walk the extra mile for a good cup. Budget shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks in advance!
Thanks everyone for their comments!
namster: after checking them out, i might just break my budget and go to one of your recs and buy everything! great choices
ilysla: i've been to lobsta truck before, and I really enjoyed it. I guess it's hard to escape that price tag if i really want a good roll. We have several Ethiopian restaurants here in chicago, but we might still go check out one of the ones in Little Ethiopia
Thank you for all your suggestions! I'd be sure to check those out (the maple donut looks especially enticing...) which brings me to another special requests...
Desserts! particularly drinking chocolate, pies, and ethnic!
Hello! Thank you for your help for a great food adventure!
Background: I'm from LA, but currently living in Chicago. My girlfriend (who's from a small town in the midwest) will be coming with me to LA for a week. She never had much cuisines outside of diners and bar foods growing up, but we love trying new foods!
Area: between 210/134 and 60. West of the 605. Basically 30 minute drive east and west of downtown.
What we're looking for:
Budget: below $25 per person
To give y'all an idea, here's the list so far (from places i've been to):
As you've prob noticed, I'm from SGV so I'd love some non-south asian recommendations.
Thank you so much! Y'all the best!
