If you’re looking for a fun eatery to visit with a large group of friends, head to Kushikatsu Arata for some fast-casual food. These deep fried skewers cost ¥120 to ¥280 a pop and are served with a housemade dipping sauce made from a dozen of secret ingredients. Aside from popular meat skewers like beef and pork, there’s also an array of seafood including shrimp and salmon, as well as veggies like shishito peppers, and tomato with cheese. If you’re here during the day, don’t miss out on the Osaka spiced curry, exclusive to the Shibuya branch between 11am and 4pm.
Shibuya Parco reopened late last year with much fanfare after a two-year major renovation, now sporting an impressive lineup of shops and restaurants. While the rooftop park makes a popular hangout on a balmy summer evening, the restaurants on the basement floor are not to be missed.
Just as its name suggests, Chaos Kitchen can be a little overwhelming with its vibrant decor and wide range of restaurants on offer. From wagyu beef ramen and DIY teppanyaki hamburgs to vegan izakaya meals and traditional Japanese desserts, this restaurant floor is a modern reimagining of a traditional Japanese yokocho, which is a cluster of alleyways crammed full of tiny restaurants and bars.
The vibe is youthful and it's a bit more spacious here compared to the street-side yokocho. And at Chaos Kitchen, you'll find that it has just about anything for anyone. So here are some of our favourite restaurants in Chaos Kitchen to help you narrow down your options.
