Who's Food's is located right next to Tower Records in Shibuya, and is probably familiar to anyone who has walked by and seen the huge plastic honey toast
outside. The restaurant is located in the basement, but it looks like the entire building is owned by the same company, and includes a couple other restaurants, a sports bar, and karaoke.
The place itself looks pretty smooth, with large fishtanks and moody lighting. Pretty typical for Shibuya, I think. The thing is, this restaurant is small
, and we had to wait for quite a bit before they could find a table to seat three people.
While we waited, though, the staff was extremely
hospitable, getting out a space heater to place next to the bench where we waited, and bringing us tea. All through the meal the service was excellent, very attentive and very prompt!!
The food itself was pretty good, not anything terribly special, which was a shame because it was sort of expensive. The items on the menu are all izakaya-sized dishes with restaurant prices, so a hungry group of people will end up with quite a bill. There's a pretty good variety of food, though, from Mexican to Vietnamese to Italian, and it was pretty difficult to choose what to get. I ended up with Jumbalaya Spicy Chicken and Spicy Sausage Pizza, both of which weren't bad. The drinks were reasonably priced, though, and they had a rather large variety, including a lot of imported beers.
After dinner we had Honey Toast, a crazy dessert consisting of an entire Japanese-sized loaf of white bread toasted, with your choice of toppings. I chose "ハニトーレアチーズ＆ブルーベリー" because it had the most toppings, something that wasn't the most wise decision. It was pretty delicious, and quite an experience to eat, though I wouldn't recommend taking one on alone.
The menu in front of the restaurant is in English in Japanese, however we were only given a Japanese-only menu once we entered. If you're secure in your katakana ability or don't mind choosing from some pictures, you're fine, and they probably have more menus in English hidden somewhere. I can't imagine any of the staff speak English, though.
All in all, Who's Food's is a little on the expensive side, but the food isn't bad and there's a good variety. Give the honey toast a try!
