Getting off at the Shiodome metro stop you can start your day at Tokyo Tower and a stroll through Shiba Park. After your walk you should absolutely check out Calabash for some akra (croquette of beans) as a quick snack.
Entering Calabash is like journeying to West Africa without leaving Tokyo. The menu is divided into three countries: Mali, Senegal, and the Ivory Coast. Try Senegal’s national dish thieboudienne (made with fish, rice, and seasoned with tomatoes), couscous from Mali, or maafe, a peanut stew with origins in Senegal and Mali.
After having a snack at Calabash you can make your way and walk around Shibuya and after some window shopping you can walk over to Queen Sheba for some authentic Ethiopian food in Nakameguro.
Once satiated on some smoked ducked and mustard make your way over to Addis restaurant to complete your tour of Ethiopian restaurants in Tokyo. Here make sure to get some freshly-baked injera flatbread and wot, Addis also offers homemade fettuccine, paella, kebabs, or lamb hamburger steaks.
After so much good yesterday continue your journey of black owned restaurants in Tokyo by taking the metro to one of the best areas in Tokyo Roppongi Hills. Only a 15 minute walk away from Roppongi is the Soul Food House. It’s a laidback diner with live bands, creative cocktails & souther or cajun classics like mac and cheese.
You will have an amazing time and if you’re American it will feel like a home away from home.
Finally in Nakano City for desert if youre Craving an American-style pie or cake? Kyle has your back. This little bakery in Nakano whips up desserts perfect for special occasions, Thanksgiving or just when you’re feeling peckish.
