With all our favorite cities, we go back to our favorite restaurants. Ramen Street in Tokyo Station is a must for every trip. Some ramen shops change while our favorites remain filled with lines. The station always has new restaurants and food stalls, plus many food attractions for the kids from burgers to snacks both sweet and savory.
Convenience store eats are another fun place to stock up for breakfast. I've been pretty obsessed with ikura (salmon roe) lately, so I really enjoyed the 7-11's ikura onigiris (rice balls) every morning. On the other end of the eating and price range, our hotel Japanese restaurant at the Palace Hotel has such a great ambiance for tradition Japanese dining.
And just when you think you can stop eating, Haneda airport has such a quality selection of eats before getting on the plane. You have a last chance for tsukemen and ramen; but my favorite is the Japanese curry in the ANA lounge. It's better than a lot of restaurants.
I got full and hungry again from writing about these eats. I can't wait to go back to Tokyo!
