Japan Tokyo Shinjuku Food Hamburg

17 November 2019

Expensive hamburger patty

Dinner at Takashimaya in Shinjuku

My cheapness, also known as tightarseness knows no bounds. Tonight I paid $15 for a hamburger patty, tiny potato, corner off a carrot and joke piece of broccoli. It was not noodles or curry. Tomorrow night I will be having noodles or curry.

I set off in search of dinner, and got lost in the busy streets until I ended up on the other side of the freeway over pass at Takashimaya. They had turned on their rooftop garden illumination, so I hiked up 10 floors of escalators and enjoyed some LED's hanging in trees.
There are 3 floors of restaurants up there, most are noodles or curry. One is omurice. One is tongue. 3 are pasta. 2 are hamburg steak. I had not yet had hamburg steak so hamburg steak it was.

Sure it was nice, but it was a tiny meal that costs at least 1.5x the most expensive Ramen I have eaten so far. Now I am sitting here wondering if I should go and get a second dinner.
I have no time for that, have to get up early, must go to bed at 9pm!

Street crossing time. Watch out for the environmentally catastrophic trucks and buses that drive around advertising pop stars. You hear about how Japan sorts their garbage, but you dont hear about how they drive thousands of advertising heavy vehicles around blasting music and flashing lights at people.

Under the freeway overpass, a food park / food truck / hawker stand has 'popped out'. I thought it might be a good spot for dinner, but it was all expensive tapas size serves. Including a lot of French flys.
