Ten Must Try Snacks in Tokyo

Street food in any Asian country is a must-try and Tokyo probably must be the most-quirkiest-fanciest-whimsical bunch you would ever see.

1. Baked Vegetable Cakes at Patisserie Potager


I love the concept at Patisserie Potager, a whimsical bakery in Nakameguro, one of my favorite areas in Tokyo – vegetable cakes and desserts, from carrot-chocolate flan to edamame cheesecake to asparagus swiss roll cake. It’s so different, so strange, so uniquely Japan! – Epicurious Deb

2. Green Matsu Tea Pound Cake

5. Dried Anchovies

9. Fruit Candy

10. Shrimp Chips

I wish I had the time to try many more quirky yumm snacks..
