HARAJUKU: Timbuk2 Flagship Store reception with San Francisco Anchor Steam Beer!



First time ever to try San Francisco craft beer.... the bottle with the light blue cap was sooo smooth.  My favorite out of the bunch.












The Harvest IPA was a bit too heavy for me... 




Anyways if you like Timbuk2 Bags there is a small Tokyo limited edition in the window...

HARAJUKU: Kohmen Ramen... Location Location Location lured me in but never again. Not worth the calories...

I was always curious about Kohmen ramen because its been around forever... I only assumed because of the flavor but now I found out it was simply location and a big tourist following.


First off extremely lowly Japanese foodie review score of 3.01 points... in the realm of ramen shops anything below 3.5 is an almost guaranteed ignore.  https://tabelog.com/tokyo/A1306/A130601/13002516/


One free service item... great ramen shops will only do this for lunch but never dinner.

Craving a little seasoned boiled egg so this was all me.



First tasted the flavor of the soup.... then the ramen... it was just soooo mediocre.  Ugh... the rice seemed as if it was preserved in saran wrap and microwaved to order.  Something wasn't right.


Boring charsiu pork...


I don't think they have dedicated experience ramen chefs here... one lady seemed to be coaching a young girl on how to make the noodles.  

It was so odd to see Otsumami (Izakaya style mini items) like edamame.

Overall this kinda tasted like a very bad version of Tenkaippin Ramen.

If you are in Harajuku and craving ramen I would suggest going to Jangara Ramen nearby.

SHIBUYA: Fujiya Honten Dining Standing Bar... lots of nice fried pub foods plus Huge Mega Hi-Ball!








This fried squid with spicy salsa sauce was nice...


Fish and Chips... lots of volume!




Of the 3 dishes this had soooo many onion rings but got bored quickly




Mega Hi-Balls for only 600yen.

Long standing counter if you want to have a drink alone...saw a few lone lady diners here.



Overall its an all standing bar so easy in and easy out.
