2019 Tokyo Food Crawl - Day 9 Lunch - Japanese-style pasta in Azabujuban

Charles Yu | Mar 20, 201904:53 PM     8

Living here in Toronto, one of my favorite go-to place for a delicious and amazing, value-for-money 'fusion' meal is at J-Town's 'Shiso Tree'. Running at around $15, their luncheon combo of soup, salad and a well executed, well sauced pasta dish is value, pretty hard to beat!

Tokyo was recently rated as one of the world's 10 most expensive city in 2019, As such, one would expect similar deal is almost non-existence? Right?! Well, I was proven dead wrong by this surprisingly tasty and stunningly priced 'el-cheapo' lunch!

Soup, salad, beverage ( Calpis Yogurt drink ) and a Japanese style, creamy tomato seafood pasta, loaded generously with squid, shrimps, clams, mussels and snow-crab claws was only priced at an all inclusive, whopping $15 too! Though not using your top quality 'Tsujiki market' ingredients, but taste and execution of the pasta was commendable. Not bad! Not bad at all!!

My friend had a ' mutated ' Thickly sliced Bacon Carbonara pasta. And that was mighty interesting and fine too!
