When you want to fill up on food

Do you have a problem finding a good place for lunch or dinner? At TAMLO you can enjoy a wide variety of cuisines. For an authentic Japanese set meal, we recommend UMEYOSHI, which offers a pork cutlet that’s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. For a taste of Japanese and Western cuisine, try Hamburger Kitchen Marburg for juicy and delicious hamburgers, Odashimon for Japanese-style pasta made with rich dashi broth, and Pom-no-ki for omelet rice with a wide variety of flavors.

If you are tired of shopping and want to find a place to sit for a while, please visit Tsukinomichi, where you can experience the traditional beauty of Japan and taste special Japanese and Western desserts and carefully prepared coffee. Alternatively, you can try a unique waffle with a cute shape and fluffy texture at PINK WOO WAFFLE. If you want to have just a little something to eat, YANKEE DONUTS, a sticky doughnut shop that uses ingredients from Hokkaido; coucou churros, a popular specialty store from Osaka for dipping churros; and KOREAN KITCHEN K-LOVERS, Korean sweets that are great for girls, are all available in the afternoon. It’s the perfect place to take an afternoon break!
