Interesting fella we chanced upon at one of the busy junctions of Shinjuku! :p

Shinjuku

He made many heads turn and some even stopped to take shots of him… like us! 🙂

We’d missed Krispykreme in Hong Kong since the joints closed at Times Square basement and at the airport terminals. So we promised ourselves that we must get some KK donuts in Shinjuku.

Tis a very long queue outside the store. Looks like they are doing well here and hopefully stay for a longer time!

Shinjuku

Yumz!

Shinjuku

Counters full of customers ordering and collecting their food.

Shinjuku

A seasonal item, “Mont Blanc”, after the french pastry made from chestnut paste, dressed with nuts and dried fruit. Quite unimpressionable actually…

Wafu Hamburger on meat sauce with cheese croquette. Double yummy! The setto comes with standard gohan bowl and a tonjiru

We chanced upon a japanese restaurant  on our last meal in Tokyo before heading to the airport. Actually chancing upon is not apt as we walked pass this restaurant practically every day from Otsuka Station on the JR Yamanote Line back to our hotel! But I’m glad we found it nonetheless, better late than never!  Ebi Fry with fried fish drizzled with dressing. Yummy!

Shinjuku

We would definitely want to be here again when we come back to Tokyo. The food’s fabulicious!
