Feel free to follow favy!


Himonoya is an izakaya-style restaurant in Shibuya that serves truly outstanding fish dishes in a relaxed and cozy setting. You might think only of sushi and sashimi when you think about Japanese fish dishes, but Japanese-style grilled fish is incredibly delicious too! Give this place a try if you love seafood. It's pretty affordable too. You can have a good meal for around ¥2,000.

Curry House Tiri Tiri

Curry house TIRI TIRI's curry is made without any chemical ingredients. This natural curry is not only healthy but also tastes amazing. All the curries served at Curry House TIRI TIRI have an entire onion used in each dish, so the onion gives the curries their sweet and sharp natural taste. An order of curry is about ¥1,000.


This is one of the most popular ramen joints in the highly competitive ramen world of Shibuya. Just walking by Hayashi, you can smell the delicious scent of the fish-based broth that makes the soup.

The soup here is pork, chicken, and seafood-based. Having both ground animals and seafood in it makes the umami even deeper and more complex. Plus there is also some soy-sauce in it, so that's why the taste is pronounced, but still, it isn't too oily. It's the perfect ramen for the summer when you want something salty but not too heavy.

If you want to eat there, you're better to go outside of peak hours. The restaurant is opened for lunchtime only from 11:30 to 15:30.

Reg-On Diner

For burgers, this retro American-style diner is really great. The burgers are made with 100% Aussie beef and no additives are used. Lunch special burgers range in price from ¥1,050 to ¥1,800 and they are served with some French fries.

Chatei Hato

Chatei Hato is a wonderful authentic cafe, the kind that was prevalent during the Showa era. So it has a superb retro atmosphere with classical music playing and dim lighting in the evening.

The coffees are about ¥850 each and you can get a popular banana chiffon cake for ¥500 or a croque-monsieur (grilled cheese sandwich with ham) for ¥750. This is the perfect place to spend some downtime after having explored the overstimulating Shibuya district.


Zuicho is a tiny restaurant with only 8 counter seats. It is open on weekdays from 11:30 AM to 6 PM. Since the opening hours are quite short, you can always see a long line-up with customers coming in and out all the time.

Zuicho serves huge tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlets) on top of a bed of rice and fluffy omelette for ¥1,000.


Open since 1952, Shibuya Morimoto has become a cult yakitori restaurant. Located in a corner barely 300 meters away from the famous Hachiko statue, they serve yakitori, or chicken skewers, grilled to perfection. The staff is super friendly and they have an English menu. The skewers range in price from about ¥190 to ¥500. The restaurant sits only about 25 people with most of the seats at the counter tables where diners sit almost shoulder to shoulder.


Katsukichi is a restaurant established over 50 years ago which specializes in Tonkatsu. Tonkatsu is a popular Japanese dish where pork is coated with panko (bread crumbles) and deep-fried. What's particular about this place is that they've created a tonkatsu dish served in a cold soup that is ideal for the hot summer months of Tokyo. You might be put off by the cold soup if you're not used to it bu give this tonkatsu a chance! It's one of the most popular places in the area, actually.
