Unlike Shibuya, the Shinjuku-Yoyogi area isn't quite so well populated with craft beer bars, but Watering Hole helps to fill the gap. This lively little bar serves twenty craft beers, mostly from Japan, on draft. Prices are about average for this kind of beer, but note that pints are a much better deal here than half-pints.
The bar area is attractive, although table seating can be tight when the shop is busy. The food menu offers simple but very tasty items like mushrooms sauteed with garlic, and fried gyoza dumplings.
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.
