Chip 'n Dale & Donald Duck Cafe@Omotesando ★★★

Fun Cafe with Cute Merchandise. Food was cute. Taste was ok. Portion was small.

Reservations recommended, but we were able to reserve on the same day with 30 min wait. Limited time pop-up 11/17/2023 - 1/21/2024. [developing story]

うなぎ はいばら Unagi Haibara@Tsukiji Market ★★

Fresh Unagi Set with Sansho Pepper. Has branches in other locations. Basic Ume Unaju set 3,000 yen, includes Japanese pickles and soup. Take Unaju with Grilled Unagi Liver Kushiyaki with upgraded soup 3,500 yen. Take Set is a better deal, because for 500 yen extra, you get Unagi Liver Kushiyaki & a piece of Unagi in the soup. Togo Bento also available for 3,000 yen. But if you are in the Tsukiji Market, it's better to focus on Sashimi rather than Unagi.
