By DeAnna Taylor
When you think of Tokyo, or Japan in general, you think of ramen, noodle bowls, and sushi. But what happens when you get tired of eating the same things during your trip?
David and LaTonya Whitaker saw a need and stepped in to help. The couple opened Soul Food House in 2015. The restaurant brings a taste of authentic, home-cooked, soul food to the city and travelers seeking a taste of home always stop by.
LaTonya and her team of chefs cook up all of the soul food staples including mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, and shrimp and grits. They also offer a great craft cocktail menu as well.
As you eat, vibe to the sound of jazz, funk, and soul music playing over the speakers. You can also catch open mic night or karaoke on special nights.
Tokyo, Japan will soon be in the spotlight since it is the host of the 2020 Summer Olympics. If you have plans to head there, you should definitely stop by this spot.
