Casual Cool Dining in the Hippest Part of Tokyo Town
Weekend Garage Tokyo
I knew I wanted to come back after my first visit; now after several, Weekend Garage Tokyo has become my latest favourite Shibuya-Ebisu-Daikanyama hang. They're a unusually large restaurant/live house unconventionally located on an almost hidden street along the JR Yamanote Line train tracks.
Weekend Garage Tokyo is a wonderful mix of coffee shop eclectic and art house sophistication with contemporary restaurant and urban chic. Take advantage of their free WiFi at one of their many large tables, some with chairs you can literally sink into. Watch out, though. Once you're sat down, you may never want to get up!
Famous for their many kinds of burgers, their menu is also peppered with classy yet affordable dishes such as Sardine Escabeche (680yen), Octopus and Potato cooked in Tomato (680 yen), a Celery and Watercress Salad (780 yen), and Buttered Clams (680 yen). They also have a wide selection of pasta and a teppan/grill offerings.
Drinks include coffees and teas, juices and original non-alcoholic cocktails. But don't worry drinkers - there are alcoholic versions, too, as well as a full line of beers, wines, and spirits. Everything is served up by a staff who are super friendly and very professional.
Weekend Garage Tokyo has live events several times a month, just visit their online calendar for showtimes: http://weekendgaragetokyo.jp/event/
