My First Japanese Food
Yayoi ken was my very first meal in Japan. My Japanese friend took me there on purpose (at this Shibuya branch, actually) because of several reasons: - it was cheap, with teishokus around 1000 yen - plenty of Japanese dishes to choose from, fried food, stir-fry and more - miso soup included - free refill for miso soup and rice Since then, I have always had a fond memories of eating at Yayoi ken, and I would also bring my visiting friends there for an affordable Japanese meal.
My favorite Japanese set meal, Salted Mackerel with grated radish
Yayoi Ken is a chain restaurant around Tokyo that offers authentic Japanese style meals. It usually consists of rice, soup and main dish. Ordering is easy since all you have to do is to choose from the ticket vending machine which has an English language option. I usually have salted mackerel with rice, soup, tofu and miso eggplant. That would cost me about 1,000 yen. If I'm hungry and want to eat more rice, I can just go to a self-serve area for rice, as well as hot tea for free. It can get crowded at lunch time though.
