The restaurant has a very small capacity. There is only one counter which has about 10 seats. There are no tables in the restaurant. When I went, only one person was working there.

They offer 2 kinds of mackerel set meals for only 550 yen in downtown Tokyo, Ginza 銀座 area.
These set meals are really cost-effective!
Usually, this type of food is more expensive.

This is the other side. There are some thin bones around the belly of the mackerel, but don't worry so much about them getting stuck in the throat. They are soft because this food is well-simmered. I could eat the bones and the meat together.

It has sweet soy sauce and miso flavors.
Delicious!

Information

Self-Service

When I went there, there was a customer who I assumed was a regular customer because after he finished the meal he returned the empty dishes himself.
It is very helpful to staff if you place your dishes on the ledge above the counter after finishing your meal.

After that he cleaned the counter where he was sitting with a prepared rag. Then he paid the bill and left.

I noticed that this small restaurant was self-service, so I did the same thing he did.

A beef bowl chain YOSHINOYA offers a set meal of Mackerel Simmered in Miso for 657 yen including 10% tax.

Miso Mackerel Meal 鯖みそ定食 - YOSHINOYA 吉野家

I prefer the set meal of WARAJIYA to YOSHINOYA, because not only mackerel but also rice, miso soup and side dish are more delicious.

A beef bowl chain YOSHINOYA 吉野家 also offers pork bowl, curry rice and veggie meal 牛丼・豚丼・カレー・ベジ定食
This beef bowl chain has more than 1200 restaurants all over Japan. It could be easy for international tourists to find the restaurant, if you walk around downtown of big city like Tokyo 東京, Osaka 大阪 and so on.

Do you like mackerel dishes?

My Best Mackerel Sushi is "Mackerel with Leaf Mustard Sushi さば高菜巻 Saba-takana-maki". 鯖寿司・サバ鮨
I will rank the different kinds of mackerel sushi you can inexpensively get in and around Tokyo. This mackerel is usually marinated in vinegar, and tasty.
