Shiori and I have never tried Chicago deep dish pizza before, so when we found out about DevilCraft, we immediately roped in our buddies at OkanoTV to head down to their branch in Hamamatsucho Tokyo.
The girls were all eager for beer, but the boys were all about the food. DevilCraft Hamamatsucho boasts 21 craft beers on tap, both local and international. The other one in Kanda has only 15.
The ambience is simple and relaxed, and the service decent. The place is usually packed in the evenings; it’s a good idea to call ahead to make a reservation before you go. We saw groups of people being turned away at the door because it was full.
We weren’t disappointed – the pizzas were delicious. So good, we ordered seconds. They take about 20-30 minutes to arrive, we recommend ordering them first and then take your time poring over the beer menu. Choosing from the huge selection on offer was half the fun. Some of the flavors were quite interesting! The beers change frequently, so there’s always something new to try.
As full as we were, there’s always room left for dessert. We ordered one of everything from the dessert menu – pecan pie, apple pie and cheesecake. We liked the apple pie with ice cream the best, and the pecan pie was great too. The cheesecake was pretty average.
DevilCraft is a great place with great food and beer, well worth a visit. The location is tops too, only 2 minutes from the JR Hamamtsucho station on the Yamanote line. It’s almost a straight line to the station from the restaurant, which helps a lot in finding your way back after a beer or ten.
“The buffalo wings are fantastic, give them a try. Goes well with the craft beers on tap. Happy hour from 5-6pm weekdays, 3-5pm weekends – 100 Yen off all drinks and appetizers. They also serve a brunch menu.”
