Although you no longer need to be Tom Cruise to get a serving of deep-fried bean balls in Tokyo, finding a proper falafel joint in the capital can certainly still be a challenge. Shaking up the competition in Roppongi since February 2017, the takeout-only Falafel Brothers has shot straight into the echelon occupied by the likes of Kuumba du Falafel, Ta-im and Pita the Great with its fried-to-order, crispy and gluten-free treats, served in both sandwich and salad form. You can choose your toppings from a selection of ten or so options, including burdock kinpira, beetroot, carrot and jalapeño, and wash it all down with a bottle of Maccabee beer. The full-size falafel sandwich goes for a reasonable ¥900 and is voluminous enough to satisfy big eaters, while a half size costs ¥500 and the salad bowl can be had for ¥1,000. Add in the unbeatable location – right behind Roppongi Station – and you've got yourself a winner.
