Saturday morning,let’s go to eat breakfast 🥞 @Tokyo (English Version)

Here are some of the restaurants we actually visited in the Tokyo area and the breakfast menus (morning menus) we ate there!

【Asakusa】Miso soup and rice balls with dashi broth at MISOJYU

To have a breakfast of miso soup and onigiri (rice balls), I went to Misojyu (ミソジュウ), a miso soup restaurant in Asakusa.

Restaurant Information

Visit the restaurant

When we arrived at 7:40 (20 minutes before opening time), there was already one person in line.
At 8:00, the opening time, there were three people in line. By 8:30 (30 minutes after opening), the restaurant was full and there was a line of about 10 people outside the restaurant.

This is the menu that was served on the day of the event.

A set of daily miso soup and onigiri (rice ball). You can also order the miso soup separately (550 yen including tax).
Although not shown in the menu photo, you can choose from two types of miso soup, and you can add onigiri (rice balls) and side dishes for an extra charge!

Actual meal

This time, we had a set of miso soup with mushrooms and deep-fried tofu, and ume-boshi rice balls.

  • Breakfast set: 660 yen (tax included)
    • Today's miso soup (mushrooms and deep-fried tofu)
    • Rice ball (with pickled ume plum)
    • Boiled egg (half)
    • Pickles (I think it's pickled in kelp)

Detailed impressions are below.

  • Today's miso soup (mushrooms and deep-fried tofu)
    • The bowl is large enough to serve as a breakfast even if you order the miso soup by itself. The miso soup is very tasty with an elegant taste that harmonizes miso, soup stock, mushrooms, and deep-fried tofu.
  • Onigiri (pickled plum)
    • Small onigiri. Chopped pickled plums are mixed into the rice. Shiso (possibly shiso leaves) is pasted on the outside instead of nori, giving it a fresh aroma.
  • Boiled egg (half)
    • Salty boiled egg. The half-boiled egg (half) is a salty boiled egg with a delightful half-boiled yolk.
  • Pickles (I think it's pickled in kelp)
    • Tasted like kelp pickles.


The breakfast consisted of rice and miso soup, the basics of Japanese cuisine. The miso soup with the aroma of dashi broth gently soaked into my stomach and soothed my stomach, which had been feeling a bit rough from lack of sleep. It is the kind of taste that makes you want to stop by before work on weekdays.
The menu structure and the amount of miso soup served made me realize that this is a restaurant specializing in miso soup.
