Rating: Very good
Price: 650 yen
Payment: Cash only
Dishes: Sesame dressing pork don with tonshiru (pork soup)
Although there is no English menu, the pictures are pretty easy to figure out, so I wouldn't let that scare you away. There is no ticket machine here, just menus and a button to press when ready to order. They always bring you a brownish cold tea drink, which I absolutely love. I think it's mugicha (wheat tea). We used to call it "dirt tea" because it has a nice earthy taste.
I got the "set" with the meal which includes miso soup, which you can upgrade to a "tonshiru" (pork soup) with lots of hearty vegetables in it. I love that stuff. It also came with a pretty big block of tofu with ginger and shredded negi on top. This was a nice bonus! The little bowl has something tasty in it, but I have no idea it is. It was quite a bit of food for only 650 yen, though I wish I had ordered an ontama (soft-yolk boiled egg) to go with.
