To give your ramen an extra kick, we recommend adding a bit of yuzu or kuro shichimi seasoning powder to the bowl...
Tokyo is the world's best food city, and we have the Michelin stars to prove it. But there are many, many other restaurants worth visiting besides those bestowed with a star, or three. So we have put together a list to make it easier for you to hunt down an exemplary restaurant – if you're in Shibuya. We've expanded our search beyond the immediate surroundings of the iconic scramble crossing and ventured into the adjacent neighbourhoods of Daikanyama, Harajuku and Yoyogi, which are within the Shibuya ward.
Whether you're looking for an elaborate kaiseki meal that celebrates the season, a hearty yakitori meal paired with natural wines, progressive Japanese-French cuisine, or even an updated take on the local fast food staple gyoza, start eating through this list. Oh, and we have included a vegetarian restaurant in here too, one that would wow even the meat-lovers.
