lunch @eat, sweets @good days

Mr T, Fee and I decided to go to lunch at Hikarie. After lunch,  I wanted to buy a birthday present so Hikarie seemed like the best choice. We checked out the dining floors on 6 and 7.

 I like the food at EAT (イー・エー・ティー 渋谷ヒカリエ店) because it’s simple and yet tasty. They have burgers and mix of tex mex,or california-mex as they would say. It definitely reminds me of America, esp with its California surfer-esque style. It’s like an open area terrace inside of a building–hahaha.

We all shared the House Made Salsa and Tortilla Chips (フレッシュ トマトサルサ with チップス). I love their fresh guacamole. I forgot to snap a pic, so this is mid way through, but you get the jist. I liked how the tortilla chips seems fresh and were thicker then regular chips. Had a very homemade feel and came out warm.

Mr T order the EAT Tostada Salad–Shrimp (EAT トスターダ サラダ 海老). I love this salad. It comes with your choice of chicken or shrimp. I have only eaten it with shrimp but I am sure the chicken probably tastes just as good, and who doesn’t love a big crunchy tortilla shell it comes it.  I was going to order this but after my 600+ kcal workout in the morning i needed something more substantial. Although this salad does fill you up.

Fee ordered the EAT Burrito Carnitas (EAT ブリトーカルニタス). This also comes in chicken. For those of you that don’t know carnitas is pork.  The burrito is really big, and looks more like a wrap. Very filling.

Here’s a closer look inside. It is stuffed with rice, fresh veggies, beans, sauce and seasoned pork.  It was delish–i had a small bite!

Since I was craving meat, i needed the EAT Burger (EATバーガー), which is made from 100% all Japanese beef patty! The potato fries remind me of In-N-Out burger french fries. They too are cut and made freshly, never frozen. They are seasoned with Patagonia sea salt and come out piping hot. They taste great both hot or cold.

Here’s a closer look at my “American size” burger as the Japanese would put it. It was delish. The lettuce was crisp and fresh and the tomato was juicy and plump. They also topped it off with their secret thousand island type sauce. The bun was cut thinly and toasted to perfection. I definitely recommend any of their burgers!!

We sat in the sofa type chair area so we could relax and talk. I really like the food here, but you have to order your food at the counter, so its a little annoying but for the taste, I don’t mind.  I forgot to snap shots of our drinks–oops. The menu is a little limited but everything I have ever tried has always been good.

We decided to get sweets next door. I miss Hawaii and this was a good reminder of what i missed–malasadas!!! I love these fried delish doughnuts without holes. They originated from Portugal but have found their home in Hawaii.

They are fried balls of golden goodness which are immediately covered in sugar after removed from the fryer. The inside is light and fluffy and outside is both chewy and crunchy. The Monthy Special Flavor was Lilikoi or Passion Fruit. I had the delish lilikoi malasada. It was made fresh and served hot.  Mr T had the cinnamon sugar–which was also great. I love these doughnuts!!
