Japan Food&Drink ~6/10/2015 Ramen,Gyutan&kakigori
Mostly when people think about Japanese food it’s sushi or miso that springs to mind. One popular snack that probably won’t be pictured is kare pan – curry bread. Essentially, this is a crunchy, coated deep-fried doughnut about the size of a bread roll, stuffed with curry.
Tokyo is the city where you can enjoy all kinds of international cuisines; and even within this Tokyo, Nakameguro in the Meguro ward is famously known for its delicious restaurants. From luxury restaurants to causal ramen shops, Nakameguro has it all.

A few blocks from Tomita Ramen is another offshoot of the local Tomita Group enterprise: Tomita Shokudou, opened in 2010.

By now, you must have noticed all the weird food combinations in Japan.
Japan’s traditional summer treat, kakigori (shaved ice with syrup), made a strong comeback last year: specialist shops started popping up all over town, regularly attracting queues that bordered on the ridiculous.
