Flippers Pancakes has for the longest time been an item on my ‘want to eat’ list in Tokyo. Never managed to try it in all my previous visits because I hear that the queue to get in is quite long.

Motoya Express is another favorite coffee joint of ours. We would always drop by for a cup whenever we are in Tokyo. Motoya does not operate out of a brick-and-mortar shop but out of a little mini bus. It is unbelievable

A new cafe at North Canal Road from the folks behind The Plain and Ronin. I have been to The Plain many times, but not Ronin. Punch has a beautiful space, with a courtyard and a green wall, which is
