Don’t-Miss Dishes in Tokyo

Don’t-Miss Dishes in Tokyo

One of the planet’s most exciting food destinations, Tokyo is hub for perfectionism on the plate. Chefs study specific techniques for years, even decades, taking pride in their mastery of a single dish. From noodles to sushi to tempura, here are some must-try dishes in Tokyo.

 

Ramen, Udon, and Soba

It's possible to spend an entire trip to Tokyo just eating noodles. There are ramen (noodles in broth), udon (thick noodles), and soba (thin buckwheat noodles) to choose from. Look for restaurants that specialize in a single type and dig in.

 

Yakitori

Walk just about anywhere in Tokyo for a whiff of chicken skewers grilling over a charcoal fire. Stop into anizakaya, or informal Japanese pub, and order a few skewers alongside a cold beer.

 

Sushi and Sashimi

Sushi and sashimi are an art in Tokyo, showcasing the skills and expertise of the chef. Sit at the sushi counter if possible and watch the master prepare your meal from slicing the fish to making the sushi.

 

Tempura

Tempura— battered and deep fried seafood and vegetables—is an art form in Tokyo. These bites are best enjoying piping hot, so eat them the moment they hit the table.

 

Gyoza

Japanese dumplings stuffed with pork and cabbage, gyoza are a popular dish across Tokyo. Compared to other styles of dumplings, gyoza have a notably thin outer skin.

 

Kaiseki

To witness the artistic side of Japanese cuisine, look out for kaiseki, a multi-course meal with beautifully plated dishes.
