Another hyper-specialized single-dish restaurant, Tokyo Hayashi Rice serves Hayashi Rice and only Hayashi Rice. The dish in question is an early 20th-century Japanese take on European beef stew, generally prepared with button mushrooms, onions and red wine in a thick demi-glace sauce.

The version served here seems representative of the classic yoshoku recipe, with big chunks of meat and a very beefy overall flavor. They do, however, incorporate a tiny slice of zucchini in a nod to modern times. Optional toppings include scrambled eggs, fried prawns and cream croquettes, and bottles of hot-pepper sauce are waiting on the counter in case you want to spice things up.

The setting is rudimentary lunch counter decor, with a soundtrack of Beatles music playing in the background. Hayashi Rice is Y800, for here or to go.
