Japan

Kebab box at Harajuku

Harajuku has become an obligatory stop for my every trip to Tokyo. Although I don’t shop there, I’d still take the Takeshita exit and cross the road, just to walk along the famous street, Takeshita Street, that’s known for cultivating the Japanese street fashion. It’s interesting to see how the area has developed over the years.

Reza, on the other hand, is sick of Harajuku. God knows how many times he’s been there. When I told him that I was going to bring my brother to Harajuku the night before, he sighed.

“Harajuku lagi?”

But he warmed up to the idea, since we’d be having a quick breakfast at the Kebab Box J that’s located at Meiji-dori. Reza never says no to kebab.

Kebab Box J is a small outlet that’s located near the prime area of Harajuku. It’s easy to spot it because it’s so bright and there’s bound to be a long line of people waiting for their kebab. Each of us ordered the chicken kebab, accompanied with hot sauce. It was only ¥500 per kebab!

Since the kebabs there are meant to be take-out kebabs, we ate them beside the street (like many other people). Unlike the usual kebabs that’s sold in KL which are generally wrapped, kebabs in Japan are meats and vegetables stuffed inside a pita bread. Hence, it can get messy, so you’ve got to have a lot of tissues.

I’m not so much of a kebab person, but I thought the kebab was really good. The chicken was slightly crispy, served with ample vegetables and sauce.

To reach Kebab Box J, take the Takeshita exit of the Harajuku station. Cross the street and walk along Takeshita Street. Once you’ve reached the end of the street, turn right to Meiji Street. By the time you see Starbucks on your right, Kebab Box J will be seconds away.

    This is exactly like the one I’ve had at Ueno. I think it’s the same shop just different branches. I like getting mix spicy or just really spicy and I like having beef instead of chicken! Ugh all this kebab talk is making me crave for kebabs and the only kebab I want is in Japan! 🙁

      Yeah, I think they have another outlet at Shinjuku, too. Where exactly at Ueno?

      I get what you mean! After I wrote this post I told Reza I wanted to go back to Japan for the kebab (the irony haha). It’s not the same here!

      Hello! How exciting! It’s been there for a while now, so hopefully it’s still standing 🙂 It’s not that hard to communicate there. You’ll survive.
