Halal Japan – Star Kebab Akihabara

Next I would like to share with you another halal eatery here in Tokyo. Unfortunately, it is not authentic Japanese food. It is a Turkish kebab stand. If you have been travelling, you would know that you can practically find these kebab stands all over Asian countries, especially those were Muslims are a minority.

But personally to me, the kebabs sold here are worth it considering the amount of meat they actually give as well as the sauce used. Or maybe it was because we were too hungry walking around Akihabara shopping and stuff.

Here are a couple photos of the SAME kebab I took (no I did not eat 2, lol).


Initially, my first thought was that the kebab was filled with veges instead of meat (since that’s what they always do to cut cost), but I was wrong. Underneath those veges that you see is a big pile of meat, which makes the meal worth it. You can choose your own sauce and I picked the spicy something sauce. I can’t remember what the something was, maybe it was greek. Maybe it was spicy greek sauce, I’m not sure.

But anyway, when they say spicy, it IS spicy even for my Asian tongue. So keep that in mind when you order. The price of my kebab is around 600 yen, which is pretty decent. I did not take the set meal as I already have a drink with me then.

Here’s a photo of the kebab stand.


As you can see, it’s a stall without any seats. So you have to keep that in mind as well when coming here. We ended up eating our kebab at the seats near to Akihabara train station.

It’s within walking distance from Akihabara train station. So from wherever you are, just take a train there and walk. Pretty simple.

I would recommend this place if you’ve been longing for meat while you’re travelling in Japan.

Stay tuned for reviews of other Halal eateries in Japan. Maybe I should start writing about mosques there as well. Hmm.

Also, please drop a comment if you have any questions regarding my travel to Japan (accommodation, itinerary, food places, how to plan a climb up Mt Fuji). Thanks!
