Devil Craft Hamamatsucho

The best pizza in town?

The craft beer craze has been catching on in countries around the world and Japan, thanks in part to DevilCraft, is no exception. DevilCraft was opened in 2011 by a trio of Americans seeking to take the classic American pairing of beer and pizza to the next level. And they’ve succeeded with flying colors.

Devilcraft is a one-of-a-kind gem in the city. The menu is pizza filled out with standard pub appetizers, but the food quality stands head-and-shoulders above average. The restaurant’s specialty is Chicago-style pizzas that, though less than half the size of a traditional Chicago pie, are every bit as delicious and filling.

Their other claim to fame is the beer, which is sourced from breweries around the world – including their own Tokyo-based brewery. What’s on tap changes daily, so you can enjoy an ever-changing selection in which almost everyone will be able to find a beer they like. The selection is so varied, in fact, you may have difficulty choosing just one to try. In which case, better just let yourself indulge. Though craft beer is their game, their non-alcoholic menu also boasts some unusual options like the spicy ginger ale or pineapple juice, so even if you don’t like beer, there’s something for you.

Take note that everyone is required to order at least one food and drink item each, but it’s all so delicious, you likely won’t have a problem doing that. If you’re really hungry, start off with some buffalo chicken wings or a basket of waffle fries. But if you’re unsure how far you can go, order a pizza first and add on as necessary. First time visitors should definitely order at least one Chicago-style pizza (if you can stop there) before trying anything else. Then, if you still have space, throw on a slice of their “Devil’s Decadent Cheesecake” or an apple pie.

The company recently opened a third shop in Gotanda, but all three locations are still usually packed everyday. You can chance a walk-up, but the wait could be as long as two hours, so either go right after opening or make a reservation to ensure yourself a timely entry.
