One of Tokyo's early Tex-Mex pioneers, Junkadelic has a lot more local competition these days, many with more appealing food but none with quite the same Bohemian atmosphere. The kitchen turns out rusticated versions of the Tex-Mex standards found in southern California, where the owner used to live, focusing on familiar dishes like fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas, and chimichangas. Portions are decently sized and prices are reasonable.
Unfortunately the constant loud noise from the blenders used to prepare the popular (and rather weak) frozen margaritas can make it difficult to hold a conversation at normal volume, and the tightly packed seating made us nostalgic for more carefree times in the past. Service can be rudimentary. Budget around Y3,000 for food and drink at dinnertime.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
