Upon arrival in Shinjuku one of the first things we did was to check out a restaurant or two for dinner. Imagine my surprise to see what appeared to be actual dishes, standing upright in beautifully made display cases, invitingly showcased in several windows (complete with prices and what looked like descriptions)!
Upon a closer look, I realised the very realistic looking dishes were actually made out of moulds. Yikes! Looks as though Tokyo restaurant owners fully believe that variety is the spice of life!
It was hard to choose but in the end, this is what I decided on having for dinner 🙂
