After living in Yotsuya for about 1.5 years never have I found such a reasonable and delicious lunch spot! Prices were in the amazingly yasui (inexpensive) range of 500-600yen... simply wow!
I went for the "nikomi hamburger"... nikomi is used when preparing food within a sauce... in this case the burger was grilled in a bowl of Japanese gravy.
Lunch comes with Hot Tea in a very nice cup.
Just too stunned... all this for only 600yen!? An absolute deal.
My burger was cooked to perfection... absolutely juicy and so tasty.
Salad had a great korean style dressing on it... a bit of shoyu, onion and salt dressing is my best guess. Soooo good.
Hot Miso soup
I was seated at the "L" shaped counter that can seat about 8 people. But there were also private booths and tatami style seating behind the counter.
One thing I absolute don't like during lunch... ash tray spotting. A guy was smoking bu luckily he was seated at the far end of the counter.
Seems draft beers and mixed drinks are only 300yen... as compared to the normal 500yen price point.
The staff was incredibly friendly and "irashyaimase/arigato" resounded thru the shop. The 2 Chefs and waitress were Indian in this Japanese style Izakaya... I will definitely be back next week for another lunch.
