Food sharing

filofari Nov 4, 2008 12:37 AM

I'm going to Tokyo in Dec with my mom and I'm wondering whats the food policy like in Japan. Are we allowed to order 1 set meal and share it. Or must we order 2 sets? I'm really hoping they allow sharing, so I can try as many restaurants as possible :)

    Hi filofari. Are you concerned about money, time? Is your plan to stop at more places (but eat smaller shared meals) through the day?

      my concern is stomach space (I'm a small eater) and time. I'm hoping to stop at more places throughout the day.

      If you see a set meal on the menu, it's for one person.

      If you want to try many different places, you might try izakayas, where you can order lots of small dishes. You also have to order a drink when you sit down, but it can be a soft drink like oolong tea.
