Death by Tofu in Shinjuku

“Tofu is a white, wobbly, rather tasteless meat substitution, in the western world typically consumed with a thick sauce, or better, submerged in some liquid.”


Today we had lunch at a very pretty, traditional, Japanese tofu restaurant located on the 4th floor of an unexciting office building. A separate room with a tatami floor hosted us four, Yasuko’s friend Tokiko joined in, and a beautifully surprising meal.

The eight (8) dishes came soupy, liquid, firm, wobbly, salty and sweet, with lots of different mountain vegetables you need to come over to Japan to taste. The whole meal came at about 30 USD per person. See for yourself… and if you come to Tokyo go for the experience, a must-do which will make you leave that place with a big 🙂
