Lunch was at the base of Tokyo Tower. There are a few restaurants and all their plastic food displays look duper attractive. Since we are craving for Unagi, we decide to settle down at this Unagi Restaurant for lunch. One set of this is about 1500 yen. Quite reasonably priced. ๐Ÿ˜€

Kira kira Unagi and I love it. The sauce is sweet and the Unagi is fresh! There’s no fishy taste and no bones. I know Unagi should have no bones but you know, sometimes they taste fishy and bony when it’s not done up properly. Heh. ๐Ÿ˜›

And there’s free flow of crispy crumbs (something like the crumbs from frying tempura?!) at the side of the table for us to add into our rice and soba soup. Yummy!

After lunch, we have dessert at one of the waffles store and it’s really damn good! This is waffle with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and corn flakes. The waffle is oh so fluffy and taste so buttery good!

Initially, we bought one chocolate sauce waffle to share. After finishing the first one, we cannot resist but to buy a second one. Lol.

This is waffle with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and almonds. I usually do not like caramel-flavored stuff cos they are most of the time, very sweet. For this waffle, the caramel fragrance is strong and nice but not very sweet! I love it!

If I ever come back to Tokyo Tower, I will sure eat this again. ๐Ÿ™‚

On the way walking back toย Akabanebashi Station, we pop in to the supermarket and we bought a lot of snacks, coffee / hot chocolate packets etc! It’s difficult to resist Japanese supermarkets! Too much varieties to choose from! ^^

Days in Tokyo – Breakfast @ Mos Burger

Staying at Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo is not only convenient and near to the Ikebukuro Station which consists of various subway lines, Tobu line and the JR Yamanote Line, just opposite the back entrance of the hotel, lies Mos Burger and Dotor Cafe which provides great and yummy breakfast! If you are more willing to walk for 5 minutes, there’s KFC, Yoshinoya and McDonald across the road. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our first breakfast in Tokyo, we chose to eat at Mos Burger. It was a chilly morning and we are so glad that there’s heater in the restaurant!

The meal comes in a set, set includes the main dish and choice of corn soup, tea or coffee. My parents chose tea and I chose the corn soup which i love, because the corn taste is so strong and fragrant, with bits of juicy corns in it as well. I had the burger with flat sausage (not sure if it’s pork or chicken). The burger itself is soft and fluffy (OMG!), the vegetables is fresh, so is the tomato which is so sweet and juicy.

Oh and if you are worrying about ordering in Japanese, there’s English menu which will be provided to you once the counter person notice that you are a foreigner. In any case if there’s no English menu being provided, there are pictures! Just point. Heh.

My parents both ate the bread with sausage. I had a few bites of it and I thought this was really delicious! The bread is toasted till it became crispy on the outside and soft inside, and it is totally not hard. The sausage is crunchy and juicy, with the mustard sauce, I thought it’s good.

In Japan, it is often a norm to bring the trays, plates, cups and bowls to the ‘Return’ area after you have completed your meal. At the return area, you will need to separate papers and plastics, and dispose them accordingly for recycling purpose.

I have never eaten breakfast at Mos Burger in Singapore, so I can’t compare, but I am happy with the quality of it in Japan. ๐Ÿ™‚
