Set in a beautifully restored traditional house, this natural wine bar in Nishi-Azabu may be my favorite find of the trip. The wood-accented interior was a calming setting for decompressing after a long day of grazing. And even better than the atmosphere was the wine list, which featured gorgeous natural wines from Japan!!! katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

I have to give it up to akiraakuto for always sending me lists of his favorite coffee spots wherever I may be traveling. I randomly stumbled upon this recommendation—one of about 20 he gave for Tokyo—while strolling around Shibuya. The place feels more like a modern art museum than a cafe and the interior is awash in white geometry, quite a trippy place for a jet lagged brain. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

If you don’t mind openly weeping at the bar when you are overcome by the balance and precision of Sawada’s perfect sushi, then by all means, try to book one of the 6 seats at this legendary sushi spot in Ginza. Don’t plan on doing anything too intense after. At the end of our 20-piece lunch (sorry no pics allowed), my travel pals ericwareheim, chloewise_, pizzacamp and I were frankly distraught that the spectacular meal was over. Here we are on the street outside feeling emotional with the linen napkins Sawada-san gifted us on our way out. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Hey it’s katieparla again and it’s my final day of my FRTakeover from Tokyo! First up, this serene garden around Yakumo Saryo is beginning to bloom, hinting at the arrival of spring. Past the garden, the serene interior of this classical tea house is the perfect place to sip tea with a side of wagashi, traditional Japanese confections. FRantasyTravel

Ahiru is my ideal neighborhood wine bar and I would have visited a few times if it wasn’t so hard to get into—the space is tiny and the bar is super popular. It was absolutely worth waiting outside in the cold for nearly an hour and a half for a tight seat at the bar. The wine list is amazing and the onion flatbread was delicious (s/o to wandrlstng for the rec and being my global bread guru)! katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

This popular izakaya in Shibuya served us a parade of dishes—sashimi on ice, grilled meat, veggie platters (can someone please explain to me how the asparagus and tomatoes are so spectacular in the middle of winter?), noodles, and more. Book well in advance (at the bar if possible) and prepare yourself for a sake-fueled night. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Just like back home in Italy, Japan’s beer scene is dominated by the big industrial brands, but there’s a small and growing craft beer movement brewing in the Japanese capital. See it in action at this brewpub and try one of the beers infused to order with domestic hops. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

I can’t go more than 2 days without eating amazing pizza so Tokyo is the perfect destination for me. The city has long embraced thick-rimmed pies thanks to Susumu Kakinuma who dutifully produces Naples-style pizza at Seirinkan in Naka-Meguro. The three-story pizzeria lists 2 pies on its menu (margherita and marinara), but if you’re lucky, the pizza master may grant your request of an off-menu white pizza topped with buttery melted cheese. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Ohayou gozaimasu from Tokyo! It's katieparla again with the FRTakeover! onibuscoffee, a supremely delicous coffee shop in Naka-Meguro, does double duty as a roaster—peep the 15-kilo-capacity Diedrich behind the till—and enjoy a tasty caffeinated beverage on the outdoor patio. FRantasyTravel

When you’re wide awake in the middle of the night and need a snack, head on down to one of the many 24-hour Family Mart shops across town for a fried pork cutlet sandwich, which is warmed to order (vegetarians: check out the egg salad sandwiches instead). Both snacks are surprisingly good in spite of resembling vending machine food and the white bread seems to defy nature with its lightness. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Everyone says the meat in Japan will change your life, and it will if you try it at Toranoana, a yakiniku (grilled beef specialist) in Ebisu. The multi-course meal starts with sliced raw beef and raw liver, then moves on to the grilled items: tongue, various cuts of short rib, then hangar steak and innards. While the focus here is squarely on carnivorous bites, Toranoana doesn’t skimp on the veggies and the salad and vegetable side dishes were some of the best of the trip. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Under normal circumstances, drinking half a dozen cocktails in an hour would be a recipe for disaster. But bar_gen_yamamoto’s 6-cocktail tasting menu is restrained, harnessing the finest seasonal ingredients and balancing them with fine Japanese spirits as in the freshly squeezed kumquat and sweet potato shochu drink above. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Wherever I travel, I always check out supermarkets and food halls to see how locals eat and shop. Located in the basement of the Tokyu Department Store near the east exit of Shibuya Station, Tokyo Food Show offers mind-boggling variety of gourmet products ranging from musk melons that will set you back a couple hundred bucks EACH to exquisitely marbled meat that is similarly luxurious. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel

Ginza Kagari’s tori paitan ramen features a thick and creamy chicken-based broth with noodles, perfectly cooked cabbage and carrot, and slices of tender chicken. You can add more toppings and flavors and on this brisk day I opted for the garlic butter, which intensified the already rich broth. katieparla FRTakeover FRantasyTravel Lipitor
