SHIBUYA: (CLOSED) Chikara-Meshi #3... Great Grilled Beef Bowls. Brand new and super busy! (Pentax MX-1)

** UPDATE: This once popular franchise is down to only 8 shops in Japan **
Chikara-Meshi has been opening up all over Tokyo recently and its a very warm welcome as I think most of us are a bit tired of having Yoshinoya or Sukiya beef bowls as the only alternative to Ramen. 

Menu is all fully automated with a "Eat In" and "Take Out" touch panel options.   After your selection have a seat and pass the ticket to the waitress... this night a very heavy-set jolly lady.  Oh don't forget to push the large lever below the touch screen panel to get your change.

Lots of sauces/toppings to choose from.

Free water on the counter~.

I went for the New Open special "Yaki Gyudon" for 280yen (normally 320yen).

And there it is with a very nice serving of Miso Soup.

I really do prefer this to Gyu-don (meat boiled in sauce).  The strips of beef here are grilled and seasoned.

Spotted a little container of Spicy Miso seasoning...

...gave a very nice kick to the beef.  Reminded me of tasty Korean Gochujang

This was a huge hit... Yaki-Gyudon-Teishoku... served on a hot metal plate with veggies, small salad, miso soup and a bowl of rice for 480yen.  A great value.

Water had a slice of Lemon... just like Europe~.  You never see this in Japan.

Located between Shibuya-Labi and Citibank... You can't miss it!

While crossing the street to Chikara Meshi I noticed a very nice Ferrari 458.
