My original post is gone! Sorry about that 😦
We randomly googled Shibuya restaurant and saw this place, Weekend Garage Tokyo.
It was bit difficult to find and you would have to go down a flight of stairs just before you cross the bridge at 1-1 Daikanyama. DrG (and Maps) saves the day.
It was a nice relaxing place, not too noisy and the music is not Jpop (not that anything is wrong with that).
The chairs and sofas are huge, comfy and very inviting. Come sit and talk a while, they seem to say.
The open kitchen and bar seating area. For when you feel like drinking alone.
For when you want to drink a LOT!
I find the Industrial decoration quite interesting. Even the bathroom mirror were made from window panes frame.
Shrimp with Agillo in Olive Oil. This was really good except it just came with 4 pieces of melba toasts. What to do with the garlicy spicy olive oil?
Today’s Chowder was kabocha soup. The pumpkin shone through even with the creamy buttery base. Little A didn’t like it though even if she likes pumpkin soup.
Yakisoba with Beef Tendon. Sadly, this had too much soy sauce but the noodles were perfectly al dente.
The WGT burger with a side of fries. Tall one, yes?
The WGT upclose
Really juicy herb and lemon chicken.
Today’s tart of pear and blueberries
Chocolate cake. Very rich and dense.
Cheesecake with seasonal sauce. This one was airy and light. New York style cheesecake is so hard to find here.
They have an extensive list of drinks. Alcoholic, non alcoholic cocktails, beers, and wines by glasses or bottles.
The service a bit uncoordinated; the food is so so; the prices not too high for the food they serve (lunch menu is chesper); the ambiance is superb.
