Truffles: Piggish antics in Aoyama

Thrust your porcine snout into the turf and root your way over to Minami Aoyama, to greet the second coming of the truffle train. Having moved from Roppongi, the Nice-based Terres de Truffes opens doors December 7 (book from November 21) in a cozier location with an expanded menu. New à la carte items (from ¥2,800) include the signature truffle-steamed rice, and a host of other titillating treats riffing on the sought-after fungus. Lunch set menus range from ¥2,800-7,800, while a set dinner goes for ¥15,000. Punters can also buy fresh truffles and bottles of truffle oil for piggish antics back home.

Juice: Your Recovery Stop After a Work Out or All Nighter


Squeezing the good stuff out of the superfood boom that rattled the West a few years back is Sky High Juice Bar (TN Aoyama Bldg, 2-3-4 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku; www.skyhigh-tokyo.jp), where you can sip on concoctions of chemical-free liquids squeezed from all manner of mostly organic pods, husks and berries. To get over your night doing something more damaging in Shibuya, try the detox sweet green (¥1,000) with kale, celery, cucumber, cabbage, apple or pear, plus lemon and ginger for a little added zing and color. Other blends are offered to target whatever your problem might be, be it skin, blood, or an inability to sing in tune.
