Luke’s Lobster

Provided by Foursquare

Making a name for itself in New York, Luke’s Lobster’s Tokyo incarnation is no less popular. The eateries signature dish is their lobster roll: a soft, freshly baked bread roll packed with, you guessed it, juicy lobster meat. You can’t go wrong with this classic, but try one with added shrimp or crab for a bit of variation. The shop is located between Harajuku and Omotesando stations, though do be warned before arriving that there is very limited seating (all outside) and queues are a mainstay.

Barbacoa Grill Aoyama

Provided by Foursquare

Another good choice for those wanting a break from Japanese food. Barbacoa is a Brazilian churrasco grill restaurant modelled on a restaurant in Sau Paulo which is considered the best of its kind. The interior does a lot to transport diners to the other side of the world, but the food is the real clincher. The barbequed meat is presented to diners on giant skewers before being flamboyantly carved into slices by the expert waiters, straight onto your plate. For the very hungry, there’s also the option of an unlimited salad bar and even a tabehoudai (all-you-can-eat) option. To complete the experience, order a Pinga, a Brazilian alcoholic drink made from sugarcane extract. Just try not to have too many.

Kohmen

Omotesando isn’t known for its value for money, yet Kohmen is determined to buck that trend. Although a chain restaurant, the speciality ramen dishes are fantastic.
