I had lunch today at Le Cordon Bleu Cafe in Daikanyama, which is also a culinary school. They have a reasonable lunch set of a main, salad, and coffee or tea for ¥1000. Today I went with lasagne since the quiche was sold out.
Ricahrd Snadoval's Toro in Ginza is the latest location in his empire of Mexican and Latin classic food restaurants. We started with an original Smoked Swordfish and Guacamole.
The smoky bacon and cheese mac side came before the main dish.
Tortilla soup, a Mexican staple.
Churasco: lamb chop, chorizo sausage, picanha, beef chuck roll, and achiote chicken. Overall, I liked the food just fine, but the service was a bit spotty and the signature cocktails were a bit too sweet for me. A fine night out. I'd certainly go back to try some of the other dishes that we didn't order.
Bebu Cafe at the Andaz Hotel in Toranomon Hills has offers great gourmet burgers. I tried the "Classic" with cheddar cheese and smoky bacon for ¥1100, however, there's a lunch set with salad, a drink, and dessert for ¥1800.
I stopped by Sangucheria Kuchi, the Peruvian sandwich service at the Bepocah location in Harajuku. I had the Pan Con Chicharron sandwich (roast pork, lettuce, potatoes, and a sauce with onions) with salad and a drink for ¥1100-it was excellent-lots of meat. It is said that the pork thoroughly cooked in water and then fried in its own fat for a crunchy finish. I'll be back for the spicy chicken sandwich.
