2016 Nov Japan Dining

Kobe Tonkatsu Taro

Tonkatsu (Pork Cutlet)

Kobe Ramen Daiichi Asahi Sannomiya

Tomato Ramen w/ chashu, or barbequed pork slices.
Price: 850 yen ($7.58) Tax included
This was an amazing Ramen (doesn't taste like other ordinary Ramen noodles).
I think it uses Lemongrass in its soup (but not 100% sure)

Osaka Edogawa Hankyusanbangaiten

Drink and dishes
Price: 1400 yen ($12.49) Tax included
This is a set something you can find in most business districts in Japan.
Office workers stop at a restaurant and socialize with their colleagues after work.
It is quite good for the price.

A dinner set + broiled chicken
Price: 2570 yen ($22.98) Tax included
This is a high-quality well-balanced affordable dinner set.
It includes a drink and a dessert (quite good for the price).
The broiled chicken was an extra I ordered. The price was 1944 yen without it.

Kyoto Saiseki-Chimoto

A Kaiseki lunch (Yuki) + Beer
Price: 5032 yen ($45.08) Tax included
Chimoto is one of well-known restaurants in Kyoto with almost 300 year long history. Saiseki-Chimoto is a spin-off version of the restaurant and it tailors to a more casual audience. It still offers real Kyoto fine dining. Whether the $45 price tag is high or reasonable is subject to debate.
