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!

【Ebisu】A basic and royal Japanese breakfast at “Fu Teishoku Ya” 🍚(ふ定食屋).

Hearing that there is a teishoku-ya that offers a basic and royal Japanese breakfast, we went to “Fu Teishoku-ya”(ふ定食屋) in Ebisu.

Restaurant Information

Visit the restaurant

We arrived at 9:00 on a Saturday (about an hour and a half after opening time). We were able to enter the restaurant without waiting in line. There were three groups of customers in the restaurant when we arrived, but it was quite empty and quiet. The round chairs in front of the restaurant are for people waiting for their turn to eat?

This is the menu offered on the day of the event. Only a few dishes are written on the whiteboard, and the majority of the dishes are selected from a table near the entrance and from the small bowls and tags in the refrigerator. There is no morning menu. You will have to come up with your own combination of dishes.

Actual meal

This is the menu I received. I combined it to make one soup and three vegetables. After taking a small bowl of food by yourself, tell the waiter what you want to order for the rest and he will bring it to your seat after cooking.

  • Set meal of my choice: 1,450 yen
    • Ham and eggs: 400 yen
    • Aji no Namenro: 350 yen
    • Chicken wing turnip: 400 yen
    • Ginshari rice: 150 yen
    • Miso soup: 150 yen

Seasonings were lined up on the shelves. It is a way to take what you need and use it yourself.

Detailed impressions are below.

  • Ham and Eggs
    • Freshly baked ham and eggs. The ham and eggs are wonderfully half-cooked. The pepper on the eggs is a nice touch.
  • Aji no Nameko
    • A horse mackerel with a strong presence and spices. Goes very well with white rice.
  • Chicken Wing Turnip
    • Chicken wings and turnips are simmered in a sauce of soy sauce. Very delicate and gentle taste.
  • Gohan
    • So-called “Ginshari” (silver rice). I wonder if it was cooked in a high-end rice cooker (guess)?
  • Miso soup
    • Miso soup. Basic, orthodox miso soup.



The exterior is completely a Showa-era diner or teishoku-ya. I thought it looked like something you would see in a meal scene from a Nikkatsu movie or an Osamu Tezuka film. As for the food, this is what a student cafeteria would look like if it were to become premium. It was the kind of menu you would find in a family that works a little harder to prepare every meal. It is a very basic and royal Japanese set meal. However, if you make a mistake in the combination of the menu items, it seems to be rather expensive. It may have been a mistake for me to choose two 400 yen menus, which I thought were the main dishes, because I was too particular about one soup and three vegetables.
I should have chosen one main dish and two side dishes.


When you have finished eating, return the tray to the return slot. There is a self-service cash register at the back of the restaurant, and you pay by reading the QR code on the slip. Credit card payment is accepted, and the payment went smoothly.
The cash register is located out of sight from the entrance of the restaurant, so first-timers may feel a little confused.

When I looked as I was leaving, I saw a sign that said “open at night”. I thought it might be a good idea to go at night next time (not sure if the menu changes or not).
