Tokyo Travelogue: Makan Edition
No Tokyo travelogue will do without food. Food is probably the most essential of a trip I would say, especially when you’re travelling in Japan!
So I’ve spent a day in Tokyo eating to my heart’s fill before spending the night at Tokyo Tower enjoying the night view~
Tsukiji Fish Market
Need I say more about anything on Tsukiji Fish Market? It’s the place to go to for fresh sashimi and sushi! And what’s better than starting the day with an awesome Sushi breakfast? Tsukiji Fish Market was scheduled to move in Nov 2016 but plans were delayed until winter season in 2017/2018 earliest! So I say, plan your trips there soon! You never know when they might decide to bring forward the move date!
Other than fresh fish, you can find dried goods store around the market where you can get those Dried Hotate for souvenirs! Fresh fruits can be seen in the market too!
And not forgetting the Tamagoyaki! This is a must try!
Grilled Hotate! Fresh and juicy!! Need I say more?
End your Tsukiji trip with a soft serve and you can never go wrong with Matcha when in Japan! (^.^)/
Just follow the crowd from Tsukiji Train station and you find your way to the fish market! You should be safe as long as you pass by Tsukiji Hongan-ji~
Other than Baked, Pablo would be the other famous Cheese tart from Japan. Since I’m in Omotesando, how can I miss the opportunity to visit the cafe right? There will be a slight queue for dining in at the cafe at level 2, so do take note of that.
Ordered their original cheese tart served warm. It comes with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream which makes it more delish! I really love how fluffy the cheese tart is. It literally melts in your mouth! Prefer this over Baked personally and can’t wait for them to have an outlet in Singapore.

I first knew of Luke’s Lobster from a friend’s Instagram post and I tell myself I need to try it out when I’m in Tokyo.
I reached Luke’s Lobster around late afternoon 4.30pm and sadly they have sold out of their famous Lobster roll!! (>~<)/ But since we’re there, I’ve decided to try out their other options which is the Shrimp and Crab roll. I love how they have half and half option so we can try out two flavours in one roll! Though I must say that I wished I have gone straight for the Crab roll option because that is so good! The bread is warm and soft and oh so fragrant! I shared one roll with my mum as we both had quite a lot to eat already but I dare say I could finish one whole roll myself!
If you want to try out their signature Lobster roll, would definitely recommend you to visit earlier in the day! And I must say, I’m so loving the peaceful and vibrant vibe of Omotesando. Just sitting by Luke’s Lobster enjoying my roll and people watch. That is a lifestyle to look forward to. (^.^)/
