    Tokyo Shibuya-ku Jingumae 3-25-12 Fuji Building B1F
    A restaurant standing just a five-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Meiji-jingumae Station serving roast beef rice bowls and American beef dishes. The sparsely lit interior creates a chic and subdued atmosphere. The restaurant's famed roast beef rice bowls are so piled high with beef you can't see the rice underneath. The hearty portions and tender meat have ensured their popularity. The steak rice bowls, covered with a special sauce, are particularly recommended.

    The food service was so terrible. The steak special bowl has too much fat and bloody. You should eat faster. The eating time was only allowed for 20 minutes. The waitress will ask you to move out...

    Tokyo Minato-ku Kitaoyama 2-1-15
    The first Japanese location of this popular New York hamburger chain, standing in the Meijijingu Gaien park in the Kita-Aoyama area of Minato City, Tokyo. The shop’s patties are all Angus beef, a high grade brand beef which is fed special fodder. People love Shake Shack’s juicy burgers. The shop’s hearty hot dogs, made with plump wieners, and its original frozen custard are also popular. Diners can enjoy a relaxing meal on the shop’s open and airy terrace overlooking the beautiful nearby avenue of gingko trees.

    I dropped by with my girlfriend after a walk. The place was packed but the seats were well-distanced from each other. The shake was pretty good and sold in a wide assortment of flavors. There were...

    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Nishishinsaibashi 2-7-27
    A venerable “yoshoku” Japanese-style Western restaurant located in Osaka City’s Chuo Ward said to be the originator of omelet rice. It is believed that a dish created for a regular with a weak stomach who always ordered rice and omelets in 1925 became the model for the popular Japanese dish. The restaurant is housed in a tea ceremony house-style purely Japanese building and the omelet rice served here tastes extra special when eaten while seated on a zabuton cushion on the tatami mat floor. In addition to standard ketchup-based omelet rice, the restaurant also serves a wide variety of variations, such as hayashi sauce and beef stew-based versions.

    Serve authentic Japanese Omurice(Omelette rice) which is very very delicious. It is like a canteen kind of environment. But very nice spots to sit in. They have a lot of choices of Omu rice to...

    This long-standing Western restaurant opened in 1956, in Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture. It is one of the restaurants said to have devised the Miyazaki’s specialty Chicken Nanban. The restaurant prides itself on its Chicken Nanban, made with tender chicken breast meat, cooked and immediately covered in sweet vinegar and a homemade tartar sauce. Locals and tourists alike line up to buy it. The old-fashioned interior, styled like a Western town restaurant, is also quite appealing.

    Visited this restaurant to enjoy the renowned nanban chicken in Miyazaki with my friend. Staff is helpful and service is quick. The location is a bit hard to find but persevere and you’ll be rewarded...

    Yo-Roppaken is the restaurant that, back in 1913, created the first “Sosu Katsudon” (a bowl of rice with a breaded and fried pork cutlet on top, served with Worcestershire sauce), the result of intensive experimentation by the restaurant owner (who had encountered Worcestershire sauce while working in Germany) to develop cuisine using Worcestershire sauce that would appeal to Japanese palates; today, “Sosu Katsudon” is a famous Fukui specialty dish. Other popular dishes at Yo-Roppaken include Pari Don (which uses menchi-katsu—a fried cake of minced meat—instead of a pork cutlet) and Shrimp Don.

    Tokyo Chiyoda-ku Kandajimbouchou 2-3 Kanda Old Book Center 2F
    A European style curry restaurant located on the second floor of the Kanda Kosho Center Building in Jinbo-cho. The restaurant's curry was perfected by the original owner after he became deeply impressed by the depth of the basic sauces used in French cuisine. Its delicious flavor is the result of skillfully combining a secret blend of spices together with an abundance of dairy and several varieties of fruits and vegetables. All of the restaurant's curries come with rice and piping hot potatoes. The most popular item on the menu is the restaurant's signature beef curry. Particularly popular with women are the vegetable curry, which contains various tasty vegetables; and the cheese curry, topped with a hearty helping of cheese.

    4 years ago, I watched a video regarding the delicious curry in a restaurant named Curry Bondy, and I anticipated a lot about the delicious curry. Due to COVID, my family and I finally ate at the...

    This is a gourmet burger restaurant located in the Bay area of Hakodate in Hokkaido, and its colorful clown signboard is a landmark. The interior of the restaurant is like a forest with the keynote being green, and there is a merry-go-round style wooden horse and swinging seats, with an atmosphere which is the same as an amusement park. The most popular burger is the “Chinese chicken” which has a Chinese flavored salty-sweet sauce. For groups, the gigantic “Mount Hakodate Burger” where three burgers can be enjoyed together is also popular.

    There are about a dozen of this chain in HDate. The one one water near the Red Sheds is where went. There was another 100m away over the road. I had a Shrimp / Prawn burger which was good. They...

    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Namba 3-1-34
    One of the oldest “yoshoku” Japanese-style Western restaurants in Osaka, founded in 1910, famous for its curry rice. The shop’s renowned curry is served mixed with rice and topped with a raw egg, an idea born out of a desire to serve piping hot curry in a time when no commercial warming or reheating devices were available. The only toppings (other than the raw egg) are onions and beef. The shop’s “light” dashi stock gives the curry a unique flavor, and adding some sauce provided at each table further enhances the deliciousness. The closest station is Namba Station.

    This restaurant features Japanese style Western food. Especially the famous cuisine is curry cooked with their own recipe. A typical Japanese curry puts curry soup on rice, but their curry was mixed...

Customers can order a plate for two people including two types of omelet, salad and drink to try a variety of flavors.

    We went here for lunch while in the area to visit Kinkaku-Ji Temple. Dishes might best be described as omelettes with a distinctly Japanese influence. Light scrambled egg surrounds a rice and...
