TOKYO | Kenyan, Shibuya is a cute cafe that serves up a range of cakes and sweets and, most famously milk tea. We first heard about Kenyan when trying to find the best milk tea in Japan, and when we finally visited we were very impressed. Their signature royal milk tea uses a combination of freshly brewed Sri Lankan black tea blended with several types of rich black teas to create a tasty, aromatic drink. You can order it hot or iced, but iced is what they do best here – there’s a reason Kenyan has been around for over 30 years and is still popular today.

If you want something a bit fancier than the standard milk tea, you can go for something like the royal milk tea float with fresh cream, berries, royal milk tea ice cream and tea jelly, but for us its seems like a shame to do anything to alter the perfect blend of tea with other flavours. Perhaps the best option is to order both.

Kenyan also offers more substantial meals for those looking for a proper feed, including several “Western” meals, but we’ve only ever visited for tea and cake. If you want to take some tea home with you, Kenyan also offers seven kinds of tea packs to purchase.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
