I usually don't spot the take out delivery bikes standing still, but this one was parked just outside a swanky apartment complex that I walk by during my daily commute.
Domino's is a favorite of my co-workers, but I've ordered from Pizza Hut twice since I've been in Tokyo. Two big surprises for Americans when it comes to American-branded pizza in Tokyo:
First, the toppings. How would you like some mayonnaise and corn on your pie? You can, or course, order a more traditional pizza, but it's interesting to take a look at the combinations that are popular with the Japanese.
Second, the prices. A medium pizza at Pizza Hut (which is the size of a small in the United states) costs between ¥1,900 and ¥2,500, which converts to $21.10 and $27.77 at today's rates, before the delivery fee. I can stretch the medium pizza into two or three meals so I can make peace with the price, but it's still a little shocking!
