Freeman Shokudo Japanese food Shibuya Tokyo Mini Curry

Freeman Shokudo, Hatagaya

The year of the lockdown hasn’t been all that conducive for dining out and subsequently, the writing of said dining out. But there are still a few great eateries I need to expound on before we banish all memory of 2020 to a box, locked …

Sushi no Midori, Akasaka
