The Monjya street as the name suggests, is within walking distance to the Tsukishima Station. The entire street is filled with monjya stalls that open till late. As we didn't speak Japanese, my husband and I went into one of the shops that had an English Menu. the food was good, the experience of eating the Monjya with a tiny... More

This is where the locals of Kachidoki go for okonomiyaki. I didn't see one western face there. If you want authentic, delicious okonomiyaki cooked right in front of you, and enjoy washing it down with a nice on tap Japanese beer, this is a street you must visit.

Being acquainted with the more popular Japanese pancake dish, Okonomiyaki from Osaka, I wanted to try the Tokyo version called Monjyayaki. It is totally different but better!! Monjyayaki is like chewy mochi with bits of cabbage, bonito flakes and whatever else they add to it. Sounds weird...but SO amazing! There is a method to cooking it and after it's done,... More

We went to Monjya Street one night on the advice of our host. He described as a place where locals eat and is good value. Given that we were only 15 minutes walk we decided to give the area a look. We came in from the Harumi Dori, over the Sumida River and over the canal. We could see little... More

Unlike the better known Okonomiyaki, Monjayaki is more like a thinned down pancake batter so it doesn't hold together quite like okonomiyaki does. Monjayaki is unique to Tokyo and I definitely recommend trying it as you can get okonomiyaki more and more often (even in the USA)

Most people come here for the little restaurants. We came after lunch in a late afternoon for a stroll. Street was a little quiet. Most restaurants were slow or getting prepared to open for dinner service. Not many interesting shops for shopping.

Monja looks like something the cat threw up but it's delicious. Try the fish egg (mentaiko), mochi, cheese mixture. Sublime. Every shop has this recipe or something similar. Great place to get good food for a reasonable price. Take tourists.

When I visit Tokyo, my Japanese friends took me to Monjya Street. We walked on the street and enjoyed looking stores. I observed that there were not much tourists and I was glad to dine in like locals. We went to a restaurant that they have been going and they taught me how to cook monjya and japanese pancakes.

This area is full of Monjya restaurants. Monjya is kind of veggies/seafood grills with some nice sauces. They also offer very nice wraps and sweets. Many tourists miss this great area of nice food, but I definitely advice you to go and eat as much as you can:)
