Open since 1949, this classic yoshoku shop serves legendary fried-rice omelettes, Hamburg steaks, and many other standards. The chicken fried-rice omelette (Y1750 at dinnertime) is reasonably substantial, the flavorful rice studded with tasty chunks of chicken and mushrooms surrounded by a soft, almost runny layer of egg. There's a rather assertive ketchup-type tomato sauce for those who like that sort of thing, but we found it unnecessary.
They also do an unusual "torotoro" rice omelette (Y2000) where they mix the rice, egg and crabmeat filling together before cooking, then serve the rough-textured omelette with two contrasting types of tomato sauce. The dining room is rather old-fashioned in style and brightly lit, up on the second floor past the ground-floor open kitchen.
