This modern yoshoku restaurant serves its own refined versions of stuffed cabbage, fried-rice omelets, menchi-katsu (deep-fried ground-beef patties), fried prawns and other classic fare. There are several lunchtime set meals in the Y2000 range that will allow you to try a variety of dishes, while dinner with drinks might average around Y4000.

The flavors here seem to be a bit deeper and richer than average, for example our stuffed cabbage was spiced with a good dose of nutmeg and white pepper, and the menchi katsu was studded with big, tasty chunks of onion. The Y2000 lunch bento offers a sampling of different items, and is a good introduction to yoshoku cuisine.
