| Food | 3am Tokyo

I remember arriving in Japan and scorning our jet lag to head into Tokyo to catch our friend playing in a rather snazzy new night venue with some well-known DJ that we have never heard of. Not our music, but it didn't stop me dancing. I remember getting shouted at for taking photos in the club with my phone. The screechy bouncer really annoyed me and I am still patting myself on the back for not getting ugly with him. The good vibes held me back and I ordered another drink instead!

3am. Legs like cookie dough. Bellies like packs of hungry wolves. Brains turning into jelly. We found ourselves in a late night restaurant with spirited staff and the atmosphere and service that you would expect at a more polite hour of the day.

We devoured a glut of soba, hotaru ika (firefly squid), and riced topped with marinated seasoned fish. We left will happy tummies and we slept like logs that night.

  1. It is nice to be able to find some place to eat so late at night. In Asia I think this should not be a problem. Back home in Kuala Lumpur, one can get food at anytime of the day or night and they are cheap and good too! Certain places like in Italy, you can go hungry if you cannot cook and need to eat something at night or on Sundays!

  2. Right?!!! Well to be honest London always has something open serving food no matter how crazy the hour. The trouble is finding something good that doesn't cost a premium.

  3. oh the food looks so amazing. i may sound like i'm green behind the ears but why didn't they like you taking photos inside the club?

  4. No idea! I kept asking over and over again as he was shouting in my face - makes no sense!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
