Shimokitazawa Street Food

Our first of many stops. Here they serve rice balls wrapped with meat and you can choose from a selection of toppings such as kimchi and natto. We tried the original nikkun roll and tomato cheese, and the tomato cheese was by far our favorite.

 咖喱とレーパンの店 天馬屋
Piping hot curry pan off the street?  Of course we couldn't resist, so we hit up this little stand outside this curry shop.  Here they serve tasty curry-pan (curry-filled bread) for to go at a reasonable price.

In California, it's often easy to find some good boba, but living here in Japan has deprived us of it.  Searching far and wide, we came across this boba stop while walking around and we must say that Tapiya was pretty legit. We had a little chat with the owner Yasunori-san, and he was kind enough to offer to take a picture for us.

    Tsunami Dining & Cafe
This isn't necessarily street food, but we decided to end our day with a nice and relaxing Hawaiian dinner. Their servings are American-size and their menu includes local favorites such as loco moco and poke salad.
