With my flight home coming at 930 am the next day, I knew I had to wake up at 5 am to catch the train to the airport. That meant my 2nd to the last day in Tokyo was technically my last day. I was tremendously full from the tsukemen I had with Sherilyn and Ruby, but as we parted ways, I was determined to eat more and cram as much I could!
My next stop for a “merienda” would be a place I wanted to eat in the moment I arrived. Unfortunately, on my first day, I forgot my map and I spent an hour walking aimlessly trying to find it. Funebashiya Honten, a humble restaurant, in front of a Uniqlo store, two blocks away from the Shinjuku JR Train Station East Exit, has been around over 100 years and they serve only one thing: Tempura. In my book, if you do one thing great for a prolonged period of time, you’ve got to be crazy good. My book was riiiiiiiight.
