Speaking of Tsukiji, you remember fresh seafood at first because there was the largest fish market in Japan. But also there’re some good restaurants that serve delicious meat dishes.
Tstsunoji (鳥焼 辰の字) is a yakitori restaurant and they are open at lunchtime on weekdays. They are long-established izakaya and the character “鳥” on the signboard is artistic. Their oyakodon is splendid.
You can have yakitori mainly and another foods (of course, they serve seafood, too) with alcoholic drinks at dinner time.
This is lunch menu. They serve three foods only at lunch time. From right to left, Yakitori bento (焼鳥弁当), oyakodon (親子丼) and shinjo-age (真如揚げ). All 850 yen. Large portion cost 900 yen. They don’t have English menu and everyone speak Japanese only. But at lunchtime, they have only 3 foods and the way of order is very simple. So, I hope you try them once 🙂
There’s counter seats and tables on 1F and there’re tables on 2F. After you open the door and say hello to waitress. She ask you “how many you are?”. So, you answer the number of your group. If you are one, you’ll be lead to vacant counter seats on 1F.
This is their oyakodon. This is the best oyakodon in all oyakodon that I have had ever. Miso soup and pickled green vegetables included (All lunch set include it).
This Oyakodon is very simple. Chicken, egg and rice. That’s all. Chicken have springy texture and beaten egg was melting. But be careful if you don’t like raw egg. As you see, eggs of this oyakodon is nearly raw. Rices and chickens are dressed with almost raw eggs. The Daisen-dori chicken meat had springy texture !
Though it is hard to understand from this photo, so much rice was in the bowl. I managed to eat it up. But I was over full. If you can’t eat too much, say “Gohan sukuname (= small rice)”. Price don’t change though.
I like it, too. Yakitori bento. Though it have “bento” in its name, it is cooked after order and you can eat it in the shop. It looks beautiful. There’s grilled Daisendori chicken (yakitori), chicken soboro, kinshi tamago (thin omlete cut into strips), snow pea and kari-kari ume (crunchy pickled plum)
Breast meat of Daisendori chicken is not fatty but springy. Its sauce wasn’t sweet. So, it’s my tastes. And soboro have cartilage and it had crunchy texture. I love this soboro. I need soboro-don (soboro bowl). I recommend it because I think no one don’t like it from children to adults, men and women on earth.
Shinjo-age is deep fried minced chicken. It is similar to chicken nugget.
It was lightly seasoned and not so fatty. It went with ketchup and mustard well. This lunch set also have two pieces of karaage. Karaage was so fatty and seasoned strongly. Those are symmetric. Those chickens are Daisen-dori chicken. Tatsunoji use Daisen-dori chicken (大山鶏) and eggs from Okukuji (奥久慈). Of course, at lunchtime, too.
Tori Shinjo-age and yakitori bento will be sold out soon every day. So, if you want to eat them, you have to go there before noon. (if you want to eat them without fail, you should go there just after the opening time)
