Rainbow Spice Cafe Chai Stall
Rainbow Spice Cafe is a franchised restaurant originally from Tachikawa that also has an address in the basement floor of Nakano Broadway. The indian curry they serve is simply amazingly delicious with a good balance of spices. You can choose from 8 varieties of the dish and some side orders such as salads and soups for just an extra 100 yen. They also specialize in original chai teas so make sure to try that too! Expect to pay around 1000 yen here.
Bar Zingaro, located on the second floor of the mall, is a really cool place, so unique for its flowery art display by famous artist Takashi Murakami. You go there not only for the amazing decor but also for the definitely awesome art latte coffees! The prices are affordable too. Most drinks are under 500 yen.
Daily Chico is a popular ice cream shop located in the basement floor of Nakano Broadway. No explanation really needed here as to why it became famous. Just look at the picture below. You can get a soft ice cream cone the size of your childhood dreams with 8 layers of flavors for just 490 yen.
Marukotei is your best option here for a healthy yet filling set meal. They specialize in dishes made with tororo (yam). You can get sets with tuna sashimi, pickles, seaweed salad and a bowl of rice mixed with barley, and of course some Japanese yam that you pour on your rice. The grated yam, shirasu (young sardines) and shrimp bowl is a very popular option here. Might sound like a strange mix but it is very delicious! Expect to pay between 1,000 and 2,000 yen.
