Shinagawa is in the southern part of Tokyo and is very easy to go to with Shinkansen stops at Shinagawa station which has direct access to and from Haneda Airport. This lively area has lately become a fabulous gourmet spot. So this time we will introduce the famous sweets buffet and the beer garden of the Shinagawa Prince Hotel!
The sweets buffet at DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO on the 39th floor (!) of the Shinagawa Prince Hotel’s main tower has a wonderful view. The buffet is extremely popular among dessert-lovers, and is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. The theme of the buffet changes depending on the season. Therefore, you can always expect to taste seasonal fruits and a variety of desserts. For example, the buffet theme until August 31st, 2019 is “Mango” – which is unquestionably the king of all summer fruits. Perfect!!
When we sat down at our table, the waiter didn’t only bring our drinks but also presented us with a cute small mango parfait which was a special plate from the chef. What a nice way to welcome guests!
The parfait was incredible. I was very impressed by the mango’s taste. It was the best mango I have eaten in a looong time.
Of course, the other summerly sweets from the buffet were also very tasty. With mango puddings, tartlets, shortcakes, homemade cookies, and macaroons, the buffet looked very inviting. Lots of sweet temptations!
Exhausted by the hot summer weather? Time to refresh on at a beer garden!
Thirsty? In that case, head to the “ICHOZAKA BEER GARDEN OUTDOOR TERRACE”! The beer garden event is a collaboration with Heineken (the legendary dutch beer company), who actually is a sponsor of the Rugby World Cup taking place in Japan this fall. The beer garden featuring a Heineken kitchen car (wow!) will be open until September 14th.
The recommended special menu on the beer terrace is are bright red and pitch black hamburgers. Well, the color of the burgers has meaning: red stands for Japan’s national rugby team, and black stands for New Zealand’s team. What a fight!
There is also a “terrace set” with an all-you-can-drink menu included. Just look at the photo – I especially like that they have some popcorn included!! If you are looking for a beer garden in the Shinagawa area, this is our recommendation!
The Shinagawa Prince Hotel offers much more that food and drinks. It also boasts a complete array of entertainment facilities including a bowling alley, karaoke, a cinema, and an aquarium. Good to know in advance that you can actually get a discount when using the bowling alley or the cinema and then visiting the beer garden!
Another tip, if you are a group of women you don’t only receive free soft cream but also get the all-you-can-drink plan for three hours instead of two! Be sure to check the website for further information!
