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 stir-fried foods.
There are so many HIDAKAYA 日高屋 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 around the large stations.
- Seasonal Menu
Set meal includes main dish, rice, soup and pickles.
Sauteed Liver and Chive Rice Set ニラレバ炒め定食 680 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. I have eaten this so many times here. 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 700 yen
Every time, I sweat a little during eating this because it is spicy.

When you order this set meal, instead of pickles, you can choose 2 piece of deep fried chicken or kimchi.

Cold Sake 380 yen
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 540 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.
