To tell you the truth... We were at many restaurants and cafe. But, to big to a regret, I have not remembered their name. Only I can tell, that it was pleasant to me at all these restaurants and cafe.
Favorite Dish: To tell you my favorite dishes... It is no easier for me, than to recollect the name of restaurants. But I remember something. I liked very much 'Sushi', 'Tempura' and 'Tofu' (the Japanese dishes).
I only went into downtown three times in the month I was in Japan, and only twice at there, and only at one restaurant, so I'll go ahead and give it my approval. The Hard Rock Cafe. The first time I got an 'All American Bacon Cheese Burger', and the second time a 'Chicken Club Sandwich'. It was so good to have that 'American' food after having nearly 3 weeks of sushi, sashimi, nato, goza, etc. (though all BUT the nato was good... ;P)
Americana. Brought me back to America completely, except for the short oriental waitresses ;P. Good food, at expensive prices (found the same meal at a 'name brand' restaurant back in the US at $5, I spent nearly 2000 yen for it at HRC Nagoya. Good thing I was on a budget, and had most everything paid for anyway! ;P)
Favorite Dish: All American Bacon Cheese Burger definatly.
Marky's Restuarant Bar and also Denny's.
Lots of Westerners who work in Japan go to Marky's - so they can give good advice to tourists. Dennys is just across the road and a good family resturant.
Favorite Dish: Marky's has food from every nation. Denny's is American, and always packed.
'Okuda' serves very good okonomiyaki,that is Japanese crape and like Korean crape.An owner is a 70's woman.and she has been making good okonomiyakis more than 30 years.
tokusei costs only 300yen! other menu,I recommend,is 'yakisoba',that means fried-noodles.it costs 200yen.
If you want to eat sweets,I recomend you try 'koori ,uji-kintoki'.it's flaked ice with boiled azuki beans,green tea and syrup.
Flaked ice is very light and airy like snow , boiled azuki beans are made by owner, green tea is served in front of us(in a way of japanese tea ceremony ,not formal,but almost fomal).
But this'koori,uji-kintoki'is available only in summer,350yen.
The picture is 'koori,uji-kintoki with milk'!!400yen.
Favorite Dish: 'Tokusei'---means 'Special'.its ingredients are egg,pork,squid,leek,cabbege,powder of bonito,ginger,and 'moti'(rice-cake).
'Okonomiyaki' she makes is not put sweet sauce on and .she always puts soy sauce on, so you can enjoy it with beer!
This restaurant offer the grilled buffet. Many kind of meat, pork and chicken. Along with sushi, dessert and ice-cream. The price is JPY 1,600 per person.
Favorite Dish: I love grilled burger
A really good hamburger, but it was very expensive. The music is great and the atmosphere is very American. But if you want some US culture it`s worth it.
Favorite Dish: Cheeseburger
Stopped on my last night in Japan in Nagoya with my brother & sister-in-law, and we went across the street for dinner.
See the chopsticks? You couldn't tell me from a native! :>
Just like to photograph the HRCs when I see them.
There are 8 in Nagoya, but this was the only one I stumbled across.
The restaurant at the top of the Nagoya Tower (situated in Nagoya Zoo & Botanical Gardens) provides a stunning panoramic view of the city as well a delicious Japanese cuisine!
The prawn fly and the crab cream croquette, etc.
have gotten on on the spaghetti.
It might be a spaghetti which becomes a habit though is a little dry.
