Exploring around Hiroo Station: For Lunch and Dessert
Join me as I explore the area around Hiroo Station to search for lunch and dessert!
In my entire time here in Tokyo, I have only gone past Hiroo (Hibiya Line) and never got off this station. So one day, my friend, S and I decided to explore this station.
Both of us are are food lovers and it is easier and much more fun because our taste is pretty similar. How (extra) good the food taste actually depends on who you eat with so make the right choice~
That day had a kind of weather where it rained randomly and when it stopped, the sun will be out full force, all excited to roast you. Our first stop was lunch (and actually to avoid the sun). We decided on this place called Shogun Burger.
It is quite hidden so if you are not good with directions, bring a friend who is. You will save a lot of time. To save you a little more time, here's how the entrance looks like.
At the entrance, your temperatures will be taken and you have to disinfect your hands with alcohol before entering the building.
Shogun Burger is located at the very end so go all the way in. There are counter seats and a couple of table seats. Sit down, scan a QR code and make your order.
Your food will be brought to you and when you want to pay, there is only the cashless payment option.
While waiting for our food, we noticed this little thing and thought it was really amusing.
- If you are pregnant, please let us know. We will name your baby!
- Don't headhunt our staff with good conditions. They will go.
I think this is one of the few shops that I have ever come across with such wit and humour. This was such an entertaining read while we waited for our food.
I ordered the Shogun Burger. The meat was juicy. The caramelised onions are really hot so please be careful when you eat it. It was nice but nothing too fancy. The fries that S had along with her burger was quite good. There was a choice of ketchup, mustard and spicy sauce (very similar to the Thai Chilli Sauce) on the table to choose from.
Our next stop was dessert. We decided on the cafe Melting In The Mouth. It was relatively easy to find. Nothing too complicated. So don't worry, you won't get lost.
Probably because it was a weekday and lunch hour, there was no one before us. The design of the pillar outside reminded me of the Korean cosmetics brand, "Too Cool For School".
The interior design of the shop was very interesting and Insta-worthy. The cover picture was shot there. Look at all those inspiring quotes and the one below.
There was quite a variety of choices to choose from the menu. We took forever to decide on what we wanted. Don't everything look so good?
S decided on the Original.
I decided to get the Salted Caramel Pretzel.
This was quite good but in my opinion, it was a little overpriced. But I guess the atmosphere and the free sockets for you to charge your devices makes up for it if you are in there for long hours. I heard the crowd and queue is quite a thing if you come during the weekend.
There is a rubbish bin right beside the entrance for you to throw your trash before you leave and here, on the opposite side of the bin was an overturned ice-cream. Isn't it adorable?
With our bellies filled, out we go, back to the hot hot sun~
I literally live to eat so if you will probably see a lot of food articles. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did eating and writing my experience. Till the next food trip if we discover anything interesting!
