We had a lot of extra footage left over from our first vlog post, so we decided to make a quick video on Tokyo restaurants. Enjoy!

Hey everyone, Ramon Cuenca here, founder and director of Art and Finance. The website that makes learning about Finance fun and accessible.
Hopefully by now you’ve seen our first vlog post on the Japanese economy. And if you haven’t, please do check it out! Links in the description below.
So this video has like, 0% to do with Finance, and is only related to art if you consider eating an art. A lot of our unused footage for our first episode was all on food! So we decided to do a bonus video on all the other food we had in Tokyo. You’ve already seen Torigin, La Durée and Kyubey, but here are few more! Links to restaurants in the description.
Zakuro in Akasaka is well known for its shabu shabu (which is thinly sliced beef boiled in a stew), but we ended up having the set menu, which was fantastic. It included oysters…. Mackerel and tuna, seaweed and taro.
The food in our hotel New Hotel Otani was also really good.
Here you have a Japanese breakfast, and assorted tempura – which is various deep fried food.
At the Takashimaya department store in Shinjuku, We had dinner at Breizh Cafe, which is a French restaurant specializing in crepes.
We dropped by the KitKat store at the basement of Seibu department store in Ikebukuro station. Here you can find limited-edition KitKat. I should add that KitKat is a serious thing in Japan, where different regions offer different flavors of the snack. I bought the flavors unique to the Kitkat store, including strawberry maple and cream cheese. There were even more flavors at Haneda airport – like rum raisin.
You should also check out the rest of the department store – there are tons and tones of amazing pastries here – my eyes were seriously about to explode. And the thing about Japanese pastries is that they’re packaged and presented so nicely that you don’t want to open them up and eat them!
Our last meal was at Jomon in Roppongi, a restaurant which specializes in yakitori – basically barbecued skewers.
See those jugs over there? Jomon has a wide selection of shochu, which is a Japanese alcoholic drink. I highly recommend you drop by this place if ever you get the chance.
Anyway, that’s it for our bonus video. Join us next time when we talk about Personal Finance. See you then!!
