Gut’s Soul Yoyogi, Shibuya

Went here with some friends. Ate almost ALL meat.

We ordered too much. We ate too much.

Everything was ok and it all pretty much looked like this. Wide variety of meat, all grilled on the fire. With us being noobs, the oils and drippings often caught fire, which made the restaurant smoky and made everyone look at us. Often. Lol.

Rin, Shibuya

A friend took us here. I think Rin is known for this sashimi plate with dry ice.

Gimmicky yes, but still pretty cool (no pun intended). Aside from the dry ice, it tasted normal.

I’m not used to using raw egg yolk as a dip. It was ok.

I liked this agedashi tofu.

I liked the other fried foods too. Japanese frying quality easily exceeds American frying.

Streamer Coffee Company, Shibuya

Found this place while looking for third wave coffee in Tokyo.

Lol. Wasn’t brave enough to try these.

Tried an iced latte. I liked it better than other Tokyo coffee houses I checked out, but I still prefer SF coffee.

Bear Pond Espresso, On The Corner, Shibuya

After not liking some of the more traditional coffee houses, I went in search of some third wave coffee joints.

View of the smoking section,  from the non-smoking section. Well, not really, but it smelled that way.

I tried espresso, but in the form of an iced latte (pictured, right). Also got an iced coffee with milk (pictured, left) because who doesn’t like double-fisting coffee amirite? Really, it was to try both forms.

I thought both were ok, not particularly special given the hype. Maybe I’m spoiled by the coffee in SF.
