Tokyo Asakusa Dining & Senso-ji Temple

Tokyo Asakusa Dining is located steps from the Senso-ji Temple and the Kaminarimon Gate.  It’s on Asakusa Nakamise Street.

Tokyo Asakusa Dining is a not a full-blown sit down restaurant.  It’s a little dessert booth on Asakusa Nakamise Street and it’s less than 20 steps from the Kaminarimon.  It’s on the left if you’re coming from Kaminarimon.   It’s hard to miss due to the long lines in front of the booth and the young women making the snack fresh.

There were cute little Japanese servers screaming obscenities at me as I walked by the booth.  How could I resist the best pick up line of all time?   “Hey you stupid American!  Come eat some tapioca and be cultured!”  By the way, I’m totally kidding.  Maybe I’m not.  I don’t speak Japanese.

Anyway, the Kinako Dango is pretty damn good.  It costs a mere 400 Yen for 6 sticks, so it equates to about 0.60 USD per stick.  The dangos were made fresh and right in front of me.  It came out warm, tore apart easily then topped with a sweet roasted soy flour.  The texture of the tapioca is softer than your usual boba; however, it sweeter than receiving a text from your love wishing you a good day.

Japanese Dangos!
Japanese Dangos!

With all the Asakusa Nakamise Street shops, Tokyo Asakusa Dining is a must stop while heading to Senso-ji Temple.  If you’re lucky enough, the young women will flirt with you like how they did with me.  If not, still stop by and hope for the best.
