Monja Hazama

3-17-18 Nishinaka-Dori
Tsukishima
Tokyo, 104-0052, Japan
TEL: 81-3-3534-1279

On a single street in Tsukishima (a manmade island in the city), there are approximately 50 restaurants serving monja, a kind of pancake (some say omlette) made from a batter poured atop meat or seafood, onions, and cabbage, cooked on a teppan griddle. Monja Hazama, distinguished from the others by a red awning, paper latnerns, and a jumble of signs marking the entrance, is considered to be the best. Diners watch from counter seating as chefs use metal spatulas to shape the mixture into a gooey, savory mass that's a kind of Japanese comfort food. 

Insider Tip:

While in the area, explore the Old Tokyo alleyways around the Sumiyoshi Shrine.
