HARAJUKU: TGIFridays... July special Thursdays event. 2,000 yen all you can eat, drink plus DJ's! (Canon G9X)

Randomly walked past TGIF in Harajuku a few weeks ago and noticed a very super amazing sign... all you can eat, drink plus DJ's for only 2,000 yen.  Wow... I had to go!

The theme was red but if you didn't have any red they were handing out scarfs. 

DJ was very ho-hum... music selection was off trend.

There were about 5 food selections but the chefs were making them non-stop.  Of course my absolute favorite in a town that lacks Buffalo Wings... the buffalo bites!  YUM... 

Burgers, buffalo chicken wings, buffalo bites, mozzarella sticks and potato wedges on the menu.

Quite busy with a very mixed crowd from college student to salary men to even a few elderly ladies.

Then the Bartender Show started... 

Random friendly folks that invited me to join their table.

Overall what a deal... time was from 6-10pm with a 2 hour limit but nobody was checking and you could stay for 4 hours if you wanted.  Friendly staff and comfort US food. Can't go wrong!  Also go for the 50% off drinks happy hour til 7pm.

ROPPONGI: Hanamaru Udon... so new and definitely a spot you can chill, chat on a budget. (Canon G9X)

Was heading to my favorite Kebab spot but I noticed a new Hanamaru Udon in the same building. 

In the past I just doubled up on toppings but ultimately the deliciousness comes from the flavor of the soup and the texture of the noodles... Went with NOOOO toppings Medium size for a super wallet friendly 230 yen.  Thats like US$ 2 dollars.

Don't get distracted by all the extra toppings unless you are on holiday.

One chef was preparing everyones order.

Free topping area.

And BOOM! Free tempura chips along with chunks of onion tempura!  Why pay for toppings when this definitely does the trick.

Medium 230yen bowl was quite massive!  There is way more noodle than soup.

Tokyo can be insanely wallet friendly in terms of dining so if you are here on a budget and need filling meal you gotta check out a Hanamaru near you.

OMOTESANDO: The Shake and Chips Tokyo! I thought it chips meant Fish and Chips... ugh. (Canon G9X)

Strollng in the back streets of Omotesando waiting my iPhone battery to get replaced at the Apple Omotesando store... It was a drenching hot crazy HOT evening and had to get out of the heat.

Noticed this awesome looking pub... a little bit of London?

Having looked at the menu I went for the "Tencho Osusume" Beer & Chips for 700 yen!  Wait I can get a glass of beer with Fish and Chips! SCORE!

Yeah... no fish... just potato chips... so the cost performance for 700 yen was rather low.

Yeah... potato chips.  Ho hum...

But the interior was spot on so pub... if they served craft beers and had a nice DJ booth this place would be packed.  But seems the main attraction here are the shakes.

If you are in need of a shake then for sure but other than that its definitely a skip... perhaps a 2nd spot after a date would be cool.  Oh there were playing kinda SKA music on the BGM.
