In 1870's Yagi Chushichi who was a master of HUTABA Ryokan ; japanese hotel madeChushichi-meshi. Tesshu Yamaoka who was bushi in Edo era ordered Chushichi to make dish having spirit of Zen which is on kind of Buddhism. Chushichi finally made special dish for Tesshu. This dish was called Chushichi-meshi, and after 70years, there was a contest to decide 5 representative local dishes in Japan. This dish with Zen spirit was decided as one of them. Now, we can try Chushichi-meshi only at Hutaba Ryokan.
Favorite Dish: Chushichi-Meshi!! with some small japanese plates. You serve rice sprinkled with nori into your bowl and pour japanese soup over rice, and eat with some kinds of japanese pickles. This soup is very nice, thick and tasty.
I will give this as gerneal not specific restaurant. Easy way is to go to Tourist place like Asakusa, try to ask tourist information or local. If you don't like somewhat luxury restaurant at Asahi building just walk around Asakusa and you will find many nice restaurant there.
Favorite Dish: I prefer Ramen!!!
Favorite Dish: These are typical japanese foods, and some ingredients are changed by season. They are tasty and look beautiful.
What makes it special? The drink-all-you-can counter. So take you time and try to drink from their wide variety of hot and cold drinks :)
