Low Budget Dining in Shibuya, Standing Sushi or Standing Bar (via Metropolis)

Wanting or needing to find budget friendly options when eating out is not limited to Brooklyn residents.

We might just want to grab a quick bite while exploring the town.

Bryan Harrell did all the legwork for us in Cheap Shibuya (Metropolis, for spots that fit the consumed to thrifty mood in this Tokyo neighborhood.

I was intrigued by The Spice Garden (Indian fare) where you purchase tickets for your meal through a vending machine. They seem to get kudos from many people and have 3 other locations around Tokyo (in Shinjuku,Ikebukuro and Roppongi) as I discovered thanks to Shinjuku Spice by Paul McInally (Japan-I, November 2008).


I borrowed his picture of the Shinjuku location as an illustration.

Getting back to Cheap Shibuya, Bryan Harrell recommends Standing Sushi Uogashi Nihon-Ichi for its mellow tone, friendly service and low prices even though they use too much mayo to his taste.

It is part of a chain according to Trendhunter which states you can complete your lunch there in 5 minutes.

Also in the standing realm is Fujiya Honten Standing Bar in the Izakaya tradition serving dishes like (hum) grilled salmon jaw ('shake-kama')...

Sounds like in order to keep your tab under control, you will have to be adventurous in your choice of dishes

Isn't the spirit of discovery half the fun?
