I love Tokyo. One of the things I love is the wide variety of restaurants, from traditional Japanese to theme restaurants to the quirky and unique. I figured I should start documenting some of the places I go.
Last Saturday I went to Harajuku, which just may be my favorite place in the world. I have wanted to go to a the Hideaway Cafe for a long time now, and finally made it there for lunch. It’s really easy to get to from Harajuku Station.
The restaurant itself resembles a tree house, and actually the green part you can see in the picture below is a tree house attached to the actual building, and that is a real, live tree growing up through the tree house.
The inside is quite cozy, and Raymond, Tomomi, and I got to sit in the actual tree house space.
I liked the mini tree house that was on the table (right side below)
They had a menu in English and Japanese, which was nice for me, even though I had two Japanese speakers with me. We all got a small salad to start with, which came with our meal.
I ordered a falafel pita. I haven’t had falafel in ages, and it did not disappoint. It also came with a side of pickled veggies.
It was a quaint, lovely place and I highly recommend it!
