“Great food - hidden in a complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We walked around the Ginza area when we suddenly felt hungry. We've just passed a complex (Ginza 9) with a food-court sign. So we headed inside and looked for the food-court, which was downstairs.

There are plenty of dining options inside. This small place was full with locals (mostly business-people on their lunch break) and the food looked good. There's no english menu, but all their food is displayed right outside the restaurant. So just point to order.

We had two plates. One was the Tonkatsu with Japanese Curry and rice. The other one was Omu Rice with a hamburger steak.
Meals are prepared right in front of you in the small kitchen. It's fast, it's fair-priced and it tasted great!
Ok, the hamburger was pretty basic. But everything else so wonderful. The Tonkatsu was crunchy and crispy with nice and tender meat. The japanese curry was obviously homemade, rich and full of flavours. The Omu Rice was the best Omu we've had on this trip. Nice and big (it's an omelette filled with rice btw.).
The meals here are really great. Good, down-to-home food in a nice, local atmosphere. It's a bit hidden away...but worth looking for! If you are in Ginza, it's surely worth coming here!
