Harry’s Sandwich Co. at Cafe Roots

By Laurier Tiernan

Tucked away on the third floor of an ageing building, at the end of two narrow veins of Harajuku’s throbbing heart, lies a juicy slice of North America: Harry’s Sandwich Co. at Cafe Roots. Designed and conceived by San Francisco native Harry Stanwood, this eatery provides one of Tokyo’s few true breaks from Japanified foreign foods.

Raised in the Bay Area, Harry brings to his sandwiches attention to detail and a well thought-out composition. His take on the classic Meatball Hero sub, for example, includes meatballs made from his father’s recipe, homemade marinara sauce, and carefully selected mozzarella cheese, which, all-combined, provides a delicious trip through space and time. The restaurant also dedicates a full third of its menu to vegetarian tastes; from the classic comfort-food Grilled Cheese to the savoury Caprese, to the domestic flavours of the Nassu.

Address: 1-16-7 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku
