Need Recommendations on "The Best of..." Tokyo & Kyoto

aquahot | Mar 2, 2008 04:59 PM

I am planning a 7 days trip to Tokyo-Nikko-Kyoto, and would like to experience the best of Tokyo/Kyoto's diverse cuisine. My budget for dinner in Tokyo would be from 2000 to 10000 Yen/per person and lunch can be street food or dessert/tea places. I will mostly stay in Central Tokyo and West Tokyo (Tsukiji, Ginza, Senso-ji, Imperial Palace, Meiji, Roppoingi Hills) but wouldn't mind going out of my way for a truly excellent meal experience.

As for Kyoto, one out of two nights I will be staying in a Ryokan with Kaiseki provided.

What are the best __ in Tokyo:
1.)(Kobe beef or some other variety) Steak
2.)Ramon noodle
3.)Puffer Fish
4.)Pork Chop
5.)Unagi don

in Kyoto:
Best tofu/vegetarian restaurant or traditional Japanese.
