If you've ever visited a restaurant and thought to yourself "why aren't there more cheese-based dishes on the menu?", then a great place to check out is Cheese Cheers Cafe. The chain has several branches in Japan, including one within just a few minutes on foot from Hibiya Station in Tokyo.
The concept of the restaurant was to create dishes for cheese lovers, by cheese lovers, and the menu definitely delivers on that. Some of the highlights include a creamy, cheesy risotto, a Bolognese pasta topped with a tower of Bella Lodi (a type of Italian hard cheese), various pizzas including a four cheese variety, and a carbonara made with Mimolette (a cheese that originates from Lille in France). There are also a number of meat dishes that come topped with cheese, including the Japanese staple of hamburger steak.
Even the desserts here take on a cheese theme, and one of the most popular items is the CCC cheesecake – it's designed to look just like a cartoonish wedge of cheese, which you can see in the photo at the top of the article.
The Hibiya Cheese Cheers Cafe location seats 80 people, and while reservations are not required, they are recommended if you plan to visit with a larger group. Bookings can be made online by visiting the official restaurant website.
