Tokyo

Naan at Akihabara

After the night he landed, the first place we’d brought my brother to was Akihabara, the otaku haven. But before any serious touring can be done, though, we reckoned it’d be a good idea to have breakfast first. Reza and I thought we should just go to Siddique, a halal Indian and Pakistani restaurant that’s located along the main street of the district.

Siddique is a restaurant chain in Tokyo that’s known for its meal sets and kebab. Like many other halal restaurants in Tokyo, the restaurant offers generous portions. Siddique takes it to another level since it lets customers have a second serving of rice or naan bread for free.

I think that’s one of the reasons why we keep coming back. Siddique keeps us completely full!

Initially thought that we’d settle for kebab, but decided otherwise. The naan bread looked too good to pass. They have a good selection of curry, too – from chicken, beef, lamb to keema (minced beef).

I ordered the Ladies Thali, a set made exclusively for ladies which consisted of rice, a large naan bread, two types of curries, salad and yogurt for ¥950 (which is average for a proper meal in the city). I usually eat a lot yet had trouble trying to finish this one.

The boys had the set which was similar to mine, but theirs came with a piece of tandoori chicken.

So full and felt like lingering there a little longer to let our stomachs settle, but must make a move. The boys were excited (obviously a lot more excited than I was). Their wonderland awaited.

If you’re planning to have good Indian food at Siddique, here’s a map to guide you to the restaurant at Akihabara:

Siddique

Take the Electric Town exit of the Akihabara station and walk straight. You should see a big, red Sega building in front of you. Cross the road, turn right and walk along the main street, Chuo-dori. Just walk straight until you spot Mos Burger on your left. The restaurant should be right beside it, the one in bright orange.
