Pizza Slice in Tokyo does New York style pies right
Tokyo isn’t exactly known for amazing pizza.
An endless sea of pizza joints and chain restaurants smother the sprawling metropolitan area, very few of which are particularly satisfying.
However, Pizza Slice, located on a quiet street in Shibuya’s Sarugaku-cho neighborhood, brings authentic New York-style pizza to the busy city — and it does so in style.
The restaurant’s white tile walls are decorated with large mirrors that run the span of the dining area, as well as racks of wine bottles that rest near the very high ceilings. Long wooden tables are the centerpieces of the room, practically inviting large groups to share a pie, though smaller tables for pairs are along the walls.
The pizza, sold by the slice or by the 20-inch pie, is thin and crispy with just the right amount of cheese and sauce.
Cheese slices run about 400 yen. The pepperoni, mushroom, Italian sausage and olive and anchovy slices sell for about 500 yen. For 650 yen, you can get a slice of white pizza or the slice of the day, the crowd favorites being the chorizo and mozzarella and Caesar salad slices. Pizza Slice also offers a popular lunch deal that includes two slices and a drink for about 1,000 yen.
Soft drinks are available, as well as coffee, wine, draft and bottled beer and liquor.
