If you’re traveling to Japan soon, make sure you add Half Saints to your itinerary. The local restaurant and bake studio announced Oct. 23 that it will be opening a second location in Tokyo, Japan. According to the announcement made on Instagram, the Tokyo branch will be opening its doors on Nov. 1—four years after opening its first location in Quezon City.
Half Saints’ Japan location is a more quaint and minimalist space compared to its Manila location, offering takeout and delivery. The aesthetic of its new location was meticulously planned and designed with the help of architect Arts Serrano of One Zero Design Inc., who also worked on the Quezon City restaurant and bake studio.
The new location’s design is also a testament to its new home city, with sleek yet warm interiors to invite the passerby inside—keeping true to the spirit of the Half Saints aesthetic.
While the Tokyo branch’s full menu is yet to be revealed, we can see on its Instagram that it’ll be serving the puff pizzas the restaurant has been known for. Half Saints Tokyo’s Instagram also shows that they have other items on the menu, such as a triple chocolate fudge brownie, and a cloud cookie.
One of Half Saints most distinct marks is how they blend local ingredients, international techniques, and ingenuity into their dishes. While the Half Saints in Tokyo isn’t a sit-down restaurant like it is here, we’re still excited to see how the brand will display their creativity in a new setting.
Half Saints Tokyo is located at Kato Building 1F, 4-2-4 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo near Hongo Sanchome Station (near the University of Tokyo main campus)
