Help with low-mid end food choices, Tokyo

celstrial Dec 19, 2012 09:20 AM

Researching for Tokyo is very challenging for me b/c of the language barrier and the massive amount of choices in all price ranges. Most CHer's talk a lot about the michelin *'d spots, but was hoping for suggestions in low to mid level priced spots, especially where we'll be staying late Jan.

I found a lot of stuff around Tsukiji fish market although sounds like it maybe be a bit "tourist trappy"

We'll be staying at the Sheraton Miyako Hotel in Minato, off the Mita and Nanboku lines.

Interested more in yakitori, soba, ramen, unagi and mid-level tempura. planned sawada for dinner and ginza okuda for a lunch already.

    all of the foods you've mentioned have been discussed ad nauseum on the board. I would recommend doing a search for each food item and see what pops up. Plenty of mid-range and cheaper options have been discussed.

      I think most of the 'tourist trappy' places will be the sushi joints at the market... I went once to Sushi Dai...

      But there's more than that at Tsujiki... :)

      I like a lot of the suggestions made at this site...
