5 Street Food Bites to Try in Akihabara
Akihabara is not necessarily known for its street food, but there are a few delicious bites worth seeking out. Here is a list of 5 street food bites to munch on while you walk --no wait-- stand! (Walking and eating is a no-no in Japan)
Feel free to follow favy!
Wagyu Skewers from Marujyu
If you want a quick bite of delicious meat, head to Marujyu, located in the Akihabara Don Quijote building, a 5 minute walk north of Akihabara station. At ¥1,000, a wagyu skewer will cost double what the standard (probably american) beef skewer costs, but is doubly delicious and worth it. The tongue skewer might be the best deal, though, and is my recommendation.
Matcha Cheese Tart from Pablo Mini
Ooey gooey yummy. Pablo Mini can be found all over Japan, but if you're in Akihabara and you've never tried one, you should! The popular cute little cheese tarts come in a variety of flavors with seasonal specialties also available. The plain, chocolate, and matcha all offer their own scrumptious experiences, so it is recommended to try them all!
Roast Beef Onigiri from Kamugen
Go to the 2nd floor of Akihabara UDX building to find Kamugen. Kamugen is a soba restaurant, but without going inside, you can buy these giant onigiri wrapped in roast beef! Take a bite and discover a whole hard boiled egg inside. These unique, enormous onigiri are a special treat that you won't find elsewhere.
Something Colorful from Yum Yum Monkey
The Kawaii food scene is really centered in Harajuku, but there is one store in Akihabara where you can get a colorful taste. Yum Yum Monkey (in the Don Quijote building) offers colorful ice creams, drinks, and the deep fried rainbow cheese shown above. It tastes like... fried cheese, but makes for a sweet photo. Check it out!
A Crème Brûlée Doughnut from Jack in the Doughnuts
Jack in the Doughnuts is a nationwide chain selling fantastic doughnuts. There is a huge variety to choose from, including "healthy" style doughnuts, and seasonal doughnuts. One of standouts is the Crème Brûlée doughnut, with a crispy sugar shell and scrumptious custard filling. Give it a taste!
