Pancakes In Tokyo

Before moving to Tokyo my husband and I loved to hit up our favorite breakfast spots. You know, everyone’s favorite breakfast spots: Denny’s, IHOP. When we finally arrived here we quickly realized there weren’t any places to get pancakes in our area, so we settled on making pancakes at home. Months had gone by and we were fed up (YES, fed up. Lol) with making pancakes and decided to search for a place. I mean, we live in Tokyo, there HAS to be at least one place to get pancakes, right?

Well, one weekend while exploring Harajuku we came across a restaurant named Eggs ‘N Things. Super excited about our find, we stood in line waiting to get our hands on some PANCAKES! We both ordered a pancake/omelet combo and dug right in. The pancakes were small (which is fine because we have gotten use to smaller portions here) but just what we needed to extinguish our cravings. Our omelets on the other hand, we didn’t like. But, overall I would still recomend stopping by to check it out for yourself.

So back to the drawing board.. We found a place named Sunday Jam and we love it! The restaurant is small, located on the second floor at 4-28-27 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. Open 9am – 10pm daily.

The atmosphere gave off a hipster vibe. The menu isn’t in English but it wasn’t hard to figure out what to get. My husband and I ordered the Honolulu Pancake Nuts and Maple and a mojito. Everything was DELICIOUS! Served with whipped cream  and your choice of Bacon ( I wish I would have gotten the bacon. I tried a bite of my husband’s and it was good) or sausage. The waiter also offered maple syrup! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Tokyo looking for a good pancake breakfast!

The Great Burger

Okay, I must admit I’m a foodie! I love food and whenever I find a good spot with great food and good service I get overwhelmed with excitement. The Great Burger in Harajuku is by far one of the best places to get a burger in Tokyo! Its a little tricky to find but thank goodness for Google Maps! =)

 I absolutely love the inside of this restaurant! Its junky but in a cool funky kind of way! We love to eat in the back of the restaurant where there are two couches and a table in between them. It almost feels as if you are eating at home on the couch in front of the tv.

Let’s get to the best part: THE FOOD! The Great Burger just doesn’t have burgers. They have sandwiches, pancakes, steaks, and salads. There is also a featured Burger of the Month. With so many different types of burgers its hard to choose which one to try, but I’d recommend trying the cheese burger or the grilled chicken sandwich, if its your first time visiting.

So, if you are in Harajuku for a day of shopping and get hungry, visit The Great Burger! You won’t be sorry.
