Won't Miss #153 - sparse Mexican food
There are a lot of great places to eat in Tokyo, but Mexican food is sadly under-represented in the selection of ethnic food. You can get tacos which have been altered to suit Japanese tastes (for the most part) occasionally. Sometimes what are called "tacos" can be a pretty scary business. One of the last I sampled was some sort of freakish meat paste with ketchup-like sauce, cabbage, and a slice of tomato. There are a couple of good places, notably one in Shinjuku and another in Hiroo, but you have to look pretty hard and kiss a lot of frogs before you find that prince of a place for Mexican food.
I won't miss the scarcity of good Mexican food.
