You could eat by yourself anywhere and still manage to look inconspicuous. But at the Mitsuwa food court, you'll blend into the crowd like a needle in a haystack full of needles. Throughout the room, they have long, curvy, bar-type tables and raised stools set up for this very purpose. And because this is a food court, you don't have to suffer the indignity of ordering from a waitress and being subjected to judgmental stares. Plus, you have five different vendors to choose food from. The tastiest is Santoka, one of the best ramen shops in the county. Also, there's a Chinese stall that does dim sum á la carte and an Italian Tomato, where you can buy cakes by the slice for about $4.
