Cafe Benisica, The Inventor of The Pizza Toast, Has Some Amazing Drinks Too!
Only 3 minutes from Hibiya Station, Cafe Benisica, is an old cafe that's been around since 1957. You can have pizza toast as it was originally served when it first arrived in Japan! You should also try the "devil's flames" which is an incredible drink which is made surrounded by fire!
Cafe Benisica, a traditional Japanese cafe since in 1957
It's only 3 minutes away from Hibiya Station or 4 minutes away from Yurakucho Station.
You're probably as curious as I am about this restaurant's super famous toast, which they claim to have invented, as well as the "devil's flames", with a name like that it is sure to pique your interest!
All that cheese and that chewy bread, it's no wonder it caught on!
At a period where most "kissatens" (Japanese traditional coffee shops) were not serving food, Cafe Benisica was the first to come up with the pizza toast.
The chewy bread and melted cheese combination will surely get you hooked! Under the cheese, there are some bell peppers, onions, bacon, etc.
Apparently, one person out of two visiting the cafe order this super popular dish!
Let's order this mysterious drink and see for ourselves!
The staff walked up to me and asked: "are you ready for your demon?".
I have to say it caught me a little by surprise. "Oh, the demon's flame? Sure, I'm ready." Am I though? I had no idea what to expect. Was I scared or excited? More of the latter, but a little bit of the first too.
The devil's flames is definitely an attraction at the restaurant.
Oh, I thought, I definitely ordered something interesting and there's no going back now, as the cafe turned pitch black and the staff set fire to some brandy.
There are other coffee drinks you can come enjoy as well.
When you stop by, you should definitely try this drink for yourself.
Come by Cafe Benisica to try all the menu items that are unique to this cafe!
