This is a typical side-street restaurant in Tokyo or any place. Since it was set up 5 years ago, it has specialized in "Yoshoku" cuisine.
"Yoshoku" literally means 'Western food', but you won't find food quite like this in the West. It's certainly not traditional Japanese cuisine, either!
"Yoshoku" is a hybrid that's unique to Japan.
Most "Yoshoku" dishes include beef or pork. However, the widespread consumption of meat is a relatively new feature of the Japanese diet.
As a result of Buddhist influence, for a long period there was no custom of eating meat.
One of the first recipes to soften the general resistance to meat-eating was beef cooked in a savoury hotpot.
It was seasoned with miso, which has been a key part of Japanese cuisine for centuries. Blending this well-loved ingredient with the unfamiliar taste and texture of beef helped people to become accustomed to the idea of eating meat.
Special recommend: 'spaghetti Napoletana'･･･950yen (approx.$7.50)
