Our first stop is Kanda Matsuya- when a restaurant is over 130 years old, you know they must be doing something right. Soba are buckwheat noodles and at Kanda Matsuya they make them fresh (you can watch them being made at the back of the restaurant). The traditional atmosphere of the restaurant is an experience in itself but the soba which are served both hot and cold are a revelation. Nutty and chewy, we eat ours cold, dipping them into tsuyu a soy based dipping sauce.

Next we head to Ueno for some street food, to a popular stall selling deep fried cutlets and beer at Ameyoko Street Market. We eat a high grade beef mince cutlet (menchi katsu)and wash it down with a cold beer.

Our final stop is Delifucious a burger joint in the suburb of Naka Meguro. The name of the restaurant was coined by the chef owner who wanted to combine the words “delicious” and “f*cking” to represent his food. And it’s the perfect name- the uniquely Japanese burgers and hotdogs are incredible. The boiled conger tempura dog is melt in your mouth- a combination of thinly sliced cucumber and a filet of buttery conger eel that’s battered and deep fried before being drizzled in a sticky, sweet sauce made from eel broth, soy and mirin. The Kobuzime fish burger contains a thick, juicy filet of fish that sits on a bed of slaw which is studded with tsukemono, tart Japanese pickles and slathered in a tofu and kombu (kelp) sauce. Creative, fresh, f*cking delicious food created by a former sushi chef. Well worth seeking out!
