I have often had food at a chain restaurant HIDAKAYA 日高屋.
You can choose from a variety of reasonable foods such as ramen, gyoza (dumpling), and many kinds of fried foods.
There are so many restaurants in and around Tokyo. Most of them are located close to main stations such as Shinjuku 新宿, Shibuya 渋谷, Ueno 上野, Akihabara 秋葉原, Asakusa 浅草 and so on.
When you are traveling Tokyo by train and subway, probably you will often see HIDAKAYA 日高屋 around the large stations.
Set meal includes main dish, rice, soup and pickles.
Sauteed Liver and Chive Rice Set ニラレバ炒め定食 660 yen
I know it is not commonly eaten in some countries. Some people are not familiar with this kind of food. If you are interested in cultural food of Japan, it is worth trying.
It is my favorite set meal of Hidakaya. Yummy!
This meat is pork liver. I often eat liver food because it is rich in nutrients.
Pork with Kimchi Spice Sauce Rice Set バクダン炒め定食 680 yen
It is spicy and tasty.
I sweat a little during eating this.
Double Gyoza Dumplings Set - W餃子定食 650 yen
When you order this set meal, instead of pickles, you can choose 2 piece of deep fried chicken or kimchi.
Gyoza Dumplings 餃子 230 yen
Hidakaya's gyoza is made in Japan.
Ginkgo Nuts 銀杏 190 yen
One of Japanese Food Delicacies is Ginkgo Nuts (銀杏 Ginnan).
Hidakaya's ginkgo nuts are marinated in olive oil.
It is doughy and a bit chewy in texture. I like it!
Vegetables Ramen 野菜たっぷりタンメン 520 yen
It is my favorite ramen of Hidakaya, because of a lot of vegetables (350g, 0.77lb) on it.
I like adding some vinegar in this salt taste soup. It makes the soup smooth.
* It is not vegetarian meal, because a little bit meat in the ingredients.
Miso Ramen 味噌ラーメン 520 yen
The soup of miso ramen is usualy thick soup, but Hidakaya's one is smooth soup and light miso flavor. I prefer thick and strong flavor miso soup, though.
Shoyu Ramen 中華そば 390 yen (Half 200 yen)
This ramen is very simple and standard style.
Left: Half Shoyu Ramen 半ラーメン 200 yen
Right: Chicken Bowl (Half) やきとり丼 240 yen
Chige Miso Ramen チゲ味噌ラーメン 610 yen
I like spicy food. I really like this ramen, but it is seasonal ramen in winter. (from December)
Spicy and Delicious!
I guess pork, egg, chive, onion, miso and kimch are in it. Stamina food!
