  • Zest Cantina (American / Azabu-juban)
  • 2008/11/10
  • The absolute best place for a pitcher of beer and a basket of hot wings in town. You can order the wings by the bucket and specify your preferred level of spicy, all served with creamy caesar dressing for dipping. The other tex-mex items on the menu don't disappoint, either. A good place for the family, the service is good and the large restaurant is far from full if you go early in the evening. The size of the dining room makes it possible to accommodate large groups with a reservation.
  • El Torito : Shinjuku (Mexican / Shinjuku)
  • 2008/11/09
  • The food was excellent and the portion sizes for the set course menu for a large group was very generous. Classic tex-mex with fabulous and irresistible tortillas made from scratch in-house. Unfortunately, the drink service was pretty slow. But they have a good selection of moderately priced imported beers. And an extensive selection of cocktails: margaritas to daquiris and their own signature drinks. Lively atmosphere but a location not that easy to find for newcomers to the area. Reservations are highly recommended as the wait can be up to 45 minutes on an average weekday.
