When in Tokyo, Heart Evangelista indulges in vintage finds and delectable cuisine just like any other tourist. In a travel vlog recently posted on her YouTube channel, Heart journeys to the Japanese capital with her husband, Gov. Chiz Escudero, in tow. The couple spent most of their time in high-end district Ginza, which Heart names as her favorite place. What exactly was on their itinerary? She was kind enough to share a few hidden gems in the city.
Heart and Chiz spent a lot of time dining on authentic Japanese food—who could resist all those sushi and Kobe beef, after all?—and one of her must-try establishments is the steakhouse Hama. She lauds it as "the best steak place here," which says a lot about the quality of their Matsusaka and Omi beef. During their trip, they visited two Hama branches in Ginza and Roppongi Hills.
They also dined once in Ginza Teppanyaki steakhouse Hotaru and feasted on mouthwatering Kobe beed at Misono. But it's not all high-end steak joints for Heart, who pays a visit to Heiroku, a converyor belt sushi restaurant with a Filipino chef on its staff.
We see the couple shop for pasalubong at Don Quixote (twice!) and at Adidas.
Finally, Heart visits known shopping streets Roppongi Hills, Ginza, and Omotesando. At Ginza, she points out Abiste Bijoux, a vintage accessories boutique, which offers baubles from Chanel and Burberry, next to secondhand store Komehyo.
On one of their final stays there, they have afternoon tea at their hotel, hosted by no other than Chanel.
