Some countries, and I'm thinking Singapore and Malaysia especially, have wonderful food courts/ hawker centres where you can find a whole host of different stalls offering a variety of local hot and cold dishes at great prices, with some seating provided too. Most of them seem to be in large shopping centres, although there are some stand alone food courts.
Are these popular in Japan too, and are there any in Tokyo that you'd recommend? I'm not talking about the basement food hall of Isetan, as whilst it is great, seems to be for take-away only. I'm looking for somewhere where you can both purchase the food and eat it.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
