{  Announcing… ♡  }

It’s literally been the most rewarding as well as challenging 2+ months of our lives but I am very excited to introduce our daughter to all of you Tokyo Eats readers :) Thanks so much for all the warm wishes. We couldn’t be happier with such a blessing joining our family. Above photo is from a trip we recently took to Hawaii for a wedding as well as my daughter’s 1 week old photo.

Sadly, I haven’t been able to go out/won’t be able to go out to as many restaurants/cafe as I used to, but in the mean time, please check out my Tokyo Eats Guide Book if you haven’t already. It’s really packed with all my favorite places and I highly recommend getting a copy if you want advice on where to eat or visit in Tokyo.


Here are just a few comments from my awesome readers :)

Hi Maki,

Thank you for writing such a cute book! I just received my copy today and love it! I especially like the “secret” spots and the day trip notes.

Thanks again!



I am from San Francisco, and I ordered your Tokyo Eats guide a few weeks ago. I cannot tell you how useful it has been on our trip so far. Your guide took us to restaurants we would have never known about on our own: xxx in Ginza, xxx in Ebisu, and xxx, to name a few. We are so grateful for your guide—it feels like we have the trusted advice of a friend.

Thank you so much,


Dear Maki

I wanted to thank you for writing such a wonderful book! My husband and I just returned from Tokyo and we were so happy that we were able to try some of the great new places we found from your guide! We often visit Tokyo and mainly stay in the Roppongi area, so your recommendations gave us some new adventures in food! We love reading your blog and thank you again for creating such a wonderful guide. We look forward to trying more of your favorite places in the future!

Aloha from Hawaii! Lynn and Derek


Also, I just wanted to thank those of you who checked out places on my blog and kindly informed me when a restaurant/cafe went out of business. In this very competitive Tokyo food environment, it’s always hard to keep up with which ones close down so your comments have been very helpful.

Thanks again for following Tokyo Eats and hope you are all having a great day!

PS: My pinterest pin-it button wasn’t working for quite sometime but it’s now fixed.

Are you lacking some veggies? Then come here! This place is in the middle of Ebisu and Daikanyama and you can enjoy lots of different types of seasonal vegetables, herb teas, and more. As you can imagine, this place is very popular amongst women.

Pictured above are the pizza lunch set for 1100yen (the one that looks like a huge pita with salad on top with herb chicken) as well as the shrimp avocado salad pasta lunch for 1100yen. They both come with a small side soup and a drink of your choice so we chose the herb tea out of 7 different selections: Refresh, relax, detox, beauty, diet, recover, hang over, balance. They also have organic coffee, lychee tea, and darjeeling to choose from. Everything was delicious and it was hard to choose what we wanted to eat as everything looked good. Even though it’s just salad, it was filling as well.

PS: I know, funny restaurant name right? heh
