Aoyama Flower Market Tea House was beyond Ah-mazing. This beautifully put together tea house is located inside of a flower store. If you are just passing by, you would never know such a gem is inside. But because of that it’s still the best kept secret in town. Actually, this tea house only recently opened less than 3 months ago. We were in awe of how much thought was put into creating this space. The tables are transparent so that you can enjoy the fresh flowers beneath them – some tables even have tiny holes in them for white roses to peek out above the glass like a vase.
Though they only offer tea (no coffee), they have a large variety including herbal, dry herbal, and special seasonal teas. They also have a small food selection – which happens to include the most delicious french toast I’ve ever had (the food rating is strictly based on the french toast we had). It was so good that my friends and I had to order another plate before the first plate was even done – and we noticed the lady behind us did the same! The service is very slow since they are under-staffed, but it’s brand new, so I can definitely look past that. The ambiance, food, and tea were so perfect together that you’ll almost certainly find yourself not wanting to leave. We certainly didn’t!

You would never know there’s such a stylish spacious cafe like this in Shibuya if you were just walking by because this cafe/restaurant is on the 2nd floor of a random building. We’ve gone here for both lunch and dinner and their food is good. Wether or not you come here just to tea or to dine, this spot is a nice calm place to know in this chaotic city of Shibuya. (PS: Dinner time is more like 2000~3000yen per person).

Welcome to Tokyo Eats. Good food is my favorite simple pleasure – and when it comes to good food, the city of Tokyo definitely does it best. In fact, there are more three-star Michelin rated restaurants in Japan than in France (or anywhere else in the world for that matter). Since my two biggest passions are eating and taking pictures, I decided to start a blog on what I do best and share all my favorite places around Tokyo (and more)! My hope is that this blog will give you a taste of the happiness that comes from the art of eating :)
The cafe shown above, ‘nR Table’, is located in Omotesando - a neighborhood with lots of cute boutiques, high-end luxury stores, and lots of happening cafes and restaurants. nR Table is slightly off the main street in this area and is on the 3rd floor of a clothing store. The ambiance is both soft and light, with comfortable and natural wooden tables and chairs. It’s a nice and cozy place to go with friends to chitchat and enjoy some slow time after a long day of shopping.
PS: The girl in the top picture is not me – she is my friend, who you will probably see frequently on my blog :)
