Omu-rice (fried-rice omelettes) and menchi-katsu (deep-fried minced-meat cutlet) are the staples at this popular neighborhood yoshoku establishment, along with Hamburg steaks and crab croquettes. The omelette is traditional in style, with a dark-hued fried-rice filling that's flavored with a mixture of ketchup and tomato sauce, and studded with bits of chicken and onion. The egg is just barely set, and it's served with your choice of three dressings - plain ketchup, demi-glace sauce or white sauce.

The basement dining room is spacious and comfortable, if a bit old-fashioned, with an outdoor sunken patio at one end. Omelettes, menchi-katsu and hayashi rice start at Y980 at lunchtime, and Y1200 in the evening. At night there's a small wine list starting at Y3000 per bottle. Take-out is available.
