This quaint little restaurant is superb – a must see if you are in Tokyo.
The menu is quite good – most are traditional dishes but heaped with all kinds of extra cheese. Prices are a bit on the high side – around $30-$40 per person, but well worth it. The quality is excellent.
They also feature delivery.
To get here take the JR Chuo Line or the Toei Mita Line and get off at Suidobashi Station. Exit the northwest exit, go around the corner, and head south down the street. Cheese Meets Meat is down about 2.5 blocks on the right.

Exit here (north/west exit), turn left out of the station, left again at the corner and head south.
You’ll pass several side streets – there’s a cheap 200¥ coin locker on one if you need one, and Cheese Meets Meat is on down a bit on your right.
You’ll pass this coin locker on your left.
Pass this side street.
From Tokyo Dome City
If you are coming from Tokyo Dome City (TDC), head out the south exit on the west side of the complex, cross the little bridge there, and head south on the street straight ahead. Cheese Meets Meat is down just 2 blocks to the south.
To get to TDC, take either the Marunouchi or Namboku Metro subway line, and head up into the TDC complex (the Metro station is across the street from TDC). Cross through the LaQua complex (towards the stadium), head to the right down the stairs beyond the stadium, through a small covered area where First Cabin is, across another small foot bridge, and down the stairs + cross the street. Make a dog-leg left down the street towards Cheese Meets Meat.
Cross through the LaQua area shown here (the other direction – this is facing north).
Go past Tokyo Dome Stadium to the left in this photo...
And down the stairs + through the small covered area on the right.

Exit the covered area….
And head down this ramp.
Immediately on your right you’ll pass this Koban (police box).
A Shortcut From Suidobashi Station
There’s actually a quicker shortcut to Cheese Meets Meat from Suidobashi Station: if you exit the station from the east exit and loop around the long side of the station to the south, you’ll come to the trestle shown on the right above. If you turn hard left here, it will take you down a short diagonal side street which will end right across from Cheese Meets Meat. Don’t head down the tiny street straight ahead, but instead make the hard left down the larger side street shown on the left above. This photo is looking southwest.
JR Suidobashi Station east exit – take the north/west exit instead. Take the east exit here + turn right at the street shown ahead for the shortcut mentioned above. Note the nice brand new renovation paint job on the overhead tracks.
Head south down the street for Cheese Meets Meat on the right.
