Commune 246 is a trendy open-air creative space that offers a wide variety of high quality food from a cluster of food trucks set up near the Omotesando Avenue. This little maze of food trucks and cafes, along with some live background music, brings together a festive atmosphere that can be enjoyed during the day or at night. Music and art events are frequently hosted here, bringing many art-enthusiasts to hangout in the community.
Commune 246 is a great place to gather with your friends, eat great food and have a few drinks. Whether you’re a herbivore, omnivore, coffee addict or art-enthusiast, Commune 246 has something for you.
A highlight of my visit was the Cori Vegan Food Stand, a food truck that serves soy nugget bowl, falafel and organic fizzy (alcoholic and non-alchoholic) drinks. Cori Vegan Food Stand is the only exclusively-vegan stall within the commune, and since they only have a couple of options in their menu, it didn’t take me too long to decide what I wanted.
I ordered the Spicy Vegetable Bowl. The food came with salad, fried soy mean drizzled with spicy sauce (which wasn’t so spicy for me), some mushrooms, brown rice and a lemon wedge. The texture of the soy nugget was delicious and the lemon juice worked really well with the spicy sauce. Food was fresh and flavourful but too greasy. It’s the kind of food you would expect from a food truck served on a paper plate. Overall, food was really delicious and we unashamedly went back for seconds. We paid around ¥1000 for the bowl.
Commune 246 isn’t just a delectably decorated urban food market. It is marketed as a new kind of community space, and whether you choose to use it as an office, a gig venue, or simply a good ol’ fashioned hang out, there’s no denying its slick yet unintimidating vibe.
What’s more, the masterminds behind Commune 246 regularly curate special events, from art nights to dances, so there’s usually something new to draw you back for a repeat visit.
