In the mood for Mexican food?
Mucho Modern Mexicano is a lively restaurant joint with a bar counter which is located on the 2nd floor of a business building in Marunouchi near Tokyo Station / Yurakucho. Filled with large groups and many guests sipping on corona beers, this place is a fun and easy going place with good service that will satisfy your hunger.
As soon as I saw the menu, I realized that this place is owned by the same group which created Hacienda Del Cielo from Daikanyama and their menu was also very similar. We had lunch here over the weekend and had the “Holiday Lunch Menu” which comes with a starter, salad of your choice, main dish, drink, and a small dessert for 1500yen. I have to say it’s quite filling and a generous portion. Pictured above is the beef burrito and the chicken fajitas (we liked the chicken fajitas more).

“KITTE” is a new mall produced by the Japan Postal Service which opened this past Spring. Kitte means ‘stamp’ in Japanese and this building/mall is one of the most happening places right now especially opening right in front of the newly renovated Tokyo Station. It’s been a few months since the opening and the long lines have calmed down a bit so now might be a good time to go check it out.
Marunouchi Reading Style is located inside KITTE on the 4th floor. It’s a cafe/book store/shop all-in-one. The cafe serves small meals, desserts and refreshments so it’s an easy spot to take a break. The best part of this cafe is, you can read any books from the store at your table while you are dining at the cafe. There’s even an area to return your books to when you’re done reading them.
Might be fun to check out both Tokyo Station and KITTE on the same day and enjoy a nice afternoon here since they’re so close to each other.

Have you heard of this artisan French butter called ECHIRE?
Known as one of the best butters in France, it is served in the finest dining establishments. ECHIRE has a store in Marunouchi (near Tokyo Station) where you can buy their famous butter, croissants, madelines, financiers, ice cream and more. As soon as you walk in the door to the store, you immediately smell the rich scent of butter. You can’t help but want to try everything but as you might expect it’s a bit pricey. Both the madeline’s and financier’s cost 315yen/each. Apparently people stand in line to buy the croissants here and they sell out by the morning time.
This store is located at the ‘Marunouchi Brick Building’, a beautiful European-inspired brick building that is just oh so lovely. It’s a great place to come hang out with your friends and loved ones on a sunny day.
