246 Common

Away from the busy street of Harajuku lies 246 common, a food carts and farmer's market. In this quiet corner of Omotesando, shops came in the form of wooden huts and caravans selling traditional Japanese snacks and cafe food. Venturing deep into 246 farmers market, you will find a two storey cafe shrouded by lush greenery and a wood chip flooring leading up to it. Amidst the beautifully decorated shops you will find a shed covered in a rusty tin roof with Brooklyn ribbon fries written on it. I was drawn by the wonderful aroma emitted from the shed and ordered myself a bowl of ribbon fries. Till today, I can never forget the wonderfully crispy texture of that ribbon fries and the cheerful smile of the owner.

  2. What a great recommendation! I wish we knew this when we were in Tokyo two years ago, oh well! I will add this to my wishlist and cross fingers for a future opportunity to visit the wonderful city! :)

  3. I would love to go to 246 common and try a little something from each food cart! It looks like the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Tokyo!
    Japan is one of the top places on my "travel wish list", so I really hope I can get the chance to visit someday!
