Tsukiji Market : Oyakodon at Yonehana (米花)

Snow fell in Tokyo this morning.

I expected Tsukiji Market don’t have much people than usual on such a cold snowy morning.

But, it was so crowded.

Yonehana didn’t have people waiting in front of the shop, but there was no vacant seat..

Ordinary I never wait outside such a cold day.

But I knew today’s chef’s choice is oyakodon on twitter.

Yonehana’s oyakodon. I had only heard about that.

It sounds yummy, don’t it ?

That is why, I waited for about 10 minutes or so, and finally I entered the shop.
By the way, about ten people followed me just after I got to the shop. I was lucky !

As soon as I seated, my side dish came.

Very hot ! My body got too cold outside, so that hot simmered fish and green onions made me really happy.

Ah, just this food, pickled vegetables, miso soup and rice is adequate for me 😛
But more, oyakodon …

I came to Tsukiji late today and I had much time and also my body was cold, so I ate it while waiting my oyakodon.

After a while, my Oyakodon came.

Wooow !!!!!

It looks yummy !

But !

How large rice ! Unbelievable !

Oh my……

Its rice seemed twice as large as usual sashimi bowl and yakitori bowl…..


Those chickens were lightly grilled ! It was flavory !

This oyakodon had yakitori !

Springy chicken was so tasty.

Great !


Yonehana’s yakitori is amazing all the same !

Tasty,,, but

I couldn’t eat it up !!!!!!

I left some though I ate chickens and eggs up 🙁
Because such large amount, the waiter said to me, “Don’t worry. Today’s oyakodon was too large for you :P”
