    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Tokyo Shibuya-ku Udagawachou 3-3B1F
    A French toast restaurant from Fukuoka located in the Udagawa-cho area of Shibuya City, Tokyo. The keys to the shop's delicious toast are the special bread that was developed by Ivorish over a half year period and the appareil made with a careful balance of eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla essence. Served fresh from the pan and redolent with maple syrup, the shop's French toast is crisp on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. Ivorish also offers season- and location-specific menu items topped with seasonal fruit and ice cream. The bare brick and warm wood interior of the restaurant creates a comfortable, natural atmosphere. Takeout available.

    I discovered this place on a previous visit to Tokyo and its been on my must visit list ever since. The French toast is to die for (both sweet and savory) abd their menu changes very regularly so...

    A hot and rising star in the world of tsukemen (noodles accompanied by a broth for dipping) and is located adjacent to Tokyo Ramen Street just past Tokyo Station’s Yaesu Exit. Rokurinsha established the now-popular style of ultra-thick noodles served with an ultra-thick dipping soup, and is one of the most lined-up for restaurants in Japan. The meat-based dipping soup also incorporates seafood flavors to create a delicious broth you will want to enjoy down to the last drop. Once your noodles are finished, you can request that additional broth be added to the thick dipping soup, watering it down just enough to turn it into an excellent standalone soup.
