Cold as it is, going out for lunch
Usually I take a homemade lunch to my office on workday.
There are no good restaurants in the building and I don’t like convenience store box lunches.
If I eat something at restaurants, I have to go out of the building.
Now, it’s too cold, so I don’t want to go out as possible 🙁
But sometimes I want to eat out for something good.
In such time, I put my coat and gloves on and go out of the building. And I walk very fast to the restaurants.
I walked to Tsukiji acrossing Kachidoki bridge the other day. It took more 15 minutes one way.
Nevertheless my lunchtime is only 60 minutes !
The shop changes lunch menu every day by their stock.
Only 20 dishes overall.
I chose wild Pacific bluefin tuna and scallops bowl (天然本まぐろ・ほたて丼, 1000 yen). The scallops were big ! And sweet !!!!!
Pickled daikon and tamagoyaki.
This shop is good at night. I ate at here last July.
July 17, 2012: Upstairs of Hajime sengyo-ten
And I went to the Yoshoku(or Youshoku) restaurant another day.
There is a historic atmosphere around the street.
I ordered a Deep fried oysters set (カキフライ, 950 yen).
Five oyster fries, spaghetti with curry sauce, and shredded cabbage. Also tomato.
There are some ways to eat oyster fry. But I like eating it with lemon juice and a little tartar sauce.
As far as I know, this oyster fry is the best 🙂
Also miso soup.
Yoshoku is Japanese-style western cuisine. Far from original western cuisine as you see.
It is near my office, but this is the first time to visit there. I regretted that I hadn’t visited there although I have been working for more 5 years. This restaurant is really nice.
