We got off at Shimbashi station to visit Suegen and eat their signature food “Kama Teishoku”.
Suegen is a traditional Japanese fine dining serving chickens mainly and they have long history. They have started their business in 1909. Now they are in new building.
They are well-known as the restaurant where Yukio Mishima (novelist) had last dinner becore committing ritural suicide by seppuku.
It’s very close to Shimbashi station !
Shimbashi is a city of office workers and Suegen is loved by them for their lunch. So, if you want to there without waiting so much, you’d better get to there at least 5-10 minutes before the opening time.
Suegen at dinner time is pricy, but they serve lunch at rather inexpensive price.
They have three lunch sets. Kama set (かま定食), Tatsuta-age (たつた揚げ定食) set and karaage set (から揚げ定食).
I chose their signature food. Kama teishoku (かま定食, Large portion 1100 yen).
Every lunch set have soup, pickled vegetables and small dish.
You’my think “What is KAMA ?”. Me, too. “KAMA” is oyakodon.
But this was the first time to see such an oyakodon.
I remember Oyakodon is chicken meat and beaten egg on the bowl of rice.
But Suegen use minced chicken(Jiyodori chicken, shamo chicken and duck).
The sauce was rather sweet and had strong tastes. There’s no pepper on each tables, but if you ask, staffs serve you pepper for it.
Also tatsuta-age Tatsuta-age teishoku (たつた揚げ定食, 1500 yen) novel.
Speaking of tatsuta age, I remember what like karaage.
It’s like minced meat croquette !
It was seasoned lightly, and Worcester sauce was served with it.
I like tatsuta-age better than kama set because of such a light tastes.
But I want to try karaage next time !
