There is literally nothing one cannot find to eat in Tokyo. Almost every nation with their own styles and flavors of food is represented in this mega city. Belgian waffles, Arabian falafel, New York style Hotdogs, Indian rice and curry; the city has got it all, and every year sees a host of brand new diners, eateries and fine dining restaurants opening up, adding to the multitude of dining options visitors can enjoy when in the city. The hardest part of dining in what some refer to as the ‘food capitol of the world’ has to be choosing where to go!!
For those visitors of a more epicurean nature, fine dining in Tokyo is, arguably, fine dining at its best; having the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the entire world means that this city is a gourmet’s dream come true. From classic French food to Fusion to traditional Japanese, whatever a visitor’s discerning palate craves, Tokyo can provide. Joel Robuchon, Quintessence, Ishikawa, Sukiyabashi Jiro and Araki are just a handful of the 3-star restaurants to call this city home, each providing the epitome of a unique and luxurious dining experience.
Joel Robuchon is particularly noteworthy as being housed in a classic French chateau built in central Tokyo specifically for the restaurant. Outlined by the modernity of the skyscrapers that surround it, the building is beautifully conspicuous in an out-of-time and out-of-place sort of way, giving diners a unique visual treat before tending to their palates.
Perhaps a traveler feels the need for more homely fare or a quick bit; in that case a visit to Omoide Yokochō (or Piss Alley as locals call it) is in order. The maze of lanes in this area is packed with small street stalls serving staple Japanese street foods: ramen, oden, yakitori, okonomiyaki to name but a few.
Whether for an epicurean feast or for a hearty bowl of ramen from Piss Alley, visitors to Tokyo will be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay while they discover the cuisines of this city, than the prestigious The Peninsula Hotel Tokyo. This magnificent hotel Tokyo is located opposite the Imperial Palace. As the neighborhood suggests, this luxury hotel Tokyo offers its guests the amenities, comforts and services fit for any royalty.
