OSAKA SHINSEKAI: Niku-No-Sakamoto. Beef steak sandwich to perfection... 500 yen so tender! (Pentax K-5iis)


Just a few minutes walk from Tsutenkaku Tower is this fairly abandoned shopping arcade called Shinsekai Shijo... Kind of reminds me of the shopping arcade in central Naha (Okinawa)

This place must have been super busy pre-internet era.

Time for my sandwich!

Menu choices are Beef Katsu 500 yen or Tonkatsu (pork) 450 yen Sandwich. 
The 80 yen corokke seemed to be a hit too.

The lady preparing my sandwich in the back was taking her time... making it perfect.
She sliced off the bread ears and cut up the sandwich into 6 pieces. Took about 10 min.

Sooo meaty and nicely favored with special sauce.  It was sooo good.
There is a tiny table and one skinny bench if you want to eat in 

If you are in the area definitely give the beef sandwich a try! Will be back!

TAKADANOBABA: Sushiro in College Waseda Town! Spacious, clean and always great quality. Lots of college students from Waseda University. (Sony RX100M2)

When choosing your seat definitely select booth... the counter seating is a bit tight.

Tablet ordering system. 

View of the counter seats. 

The conveyer belt is rather interesting here.  It comes off the main rail and routed into a small section. Similar to a train station. 

Maguro Yamakake... Diced tuna with sticky potato. 

Small packets of wasabi occasionally come around on the belt. 

I love Shrimp Tempura!

1st order shrimp tempura... just too good! It was definitely made to order.  Very crispy on the outside. 

2nd order! Yum!

Fairly big size of shrimp.

Thought this was a plate for the soup but it says to return to conveyer belt. 

Normally for clam miso soup you get about 8-9 pieces... but this had a special seaweed. 

All done! Not a heavy eater. 

Remember as common curtesy place all your plates at the head of the table. 

Self payment register.
