Some fantastic restaurants in Iidabashi, Tokyo

Shinjuku

Iidabashi is a great gourmet spot! These are some of the best restaurants and cafes in the area, from high-end to affordable and delicious.

Tobiushi

For exquisite yakiniku (Japanese BBQ), 'Tobiushi' is a fantastic option. It specializes in A5 wagyu (the highest wagyu rank). Here, guests are seated in private dining rooms equipped with tabletop grills to cook the premium beef. If you've never experienced top-grade wagyu before, this is the place to go. The 'Omotenashi Course' pictured above is ¥10,000. It comes with 12 items, including the restaurant's most popular wagyu selections.

Washoku Onodera

For quintessential Japanese cuisine, or 'washoku', this is one of the best choices in the area. Washoku Onodera only serves course meals that are made with high-quality seasonal ingredients. The dining experience consists of enjoying one by one a series of small dishes that are beautiful, simple, yet really tasty because of the freshness of each ingredient.

The interior is all in a peaceful white wood tone and there is even a traditional Japnese low table that you sit at if you are in a group of three or more people.

Evening courses start at around ¥10,000.

Agezuki

Moving on to much more affordable options, there is Agezuki, a tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlets) restaurant that is really popular in the area. They use a domestic kind of pork called the southern island pork to make their tonkatsu. The meat of superior quality has a delectable smell and is packed with savoury umami. Add to that the perfect crispy coating and you've got outstanding tonkatsu that attract fans from across Tokyo. You can choose several different cuts that range in price from ¥1,100 to ¥2,780. For a ¥380 extra, you get rice, miso soup, pickles and a potato salad. They have lunch specials too!

Kyorakutei

Soba noodles at this traditional type of restaurant are exceptionally delicious. They're house-made and you can have different types of them that vary according to their buckwheat content. The tempura and the soup and dipping sauces that come with them are also incredibly good! You should try them with a duck broth, which goes so well with the taste of soba. The quality is amazing yet the prices here are not that high! Most of the menu items are just around ¥1,000.

Ki-no Zen

This retro-style cafe is really nice to have some traditional Japanese desserts made with anko (sweets beans), rice balls, matcha, fruits and kuromitsu (black sugar syrup). Try their anmitsu (syrup-covered anko, fruits and other toppings) with a cup of green tea. This is a staple of retro cafes that you have to try at least once. Another stand out dessert is their matcha Bavarian cream with anko. The bitterness of the matcha green tea balances out perfectly the sweet anko. Most desserts are ¥1,000 or less.
