REVIEW OF THE WEEK

Chamoro

2018-01-12 18:16

As suggested by a Japanese friend, I tried this place out for omurice, which is the special dish here. Omurice is a an omelette sitting on a bed of rice, usually with some sauce or curry. The one I had here was very simple: the rice was plain so no flavor, but the omelette came with some sauce that I honestly can't name and tasted a bit like teriyaki sauce but not as sweet. The eggs were still raw in some spots, which is not uncommon for omurice, but if that's something you can't stand then you should avoid this place. The two most popular dishes here are beef tongue omurice and prawn omurice. They're both ¥1500 and the portions are average. I went with the prawn one, which was perfectly fried in a crispy amd crunchy coating. Although I really liked the prawn, I think all in all the omurice wasn't very flavorful. I went out of my way to try Chamoro because I was really craving omurice, but wouldn't do it again. If you're already in Ebisu and want to try something very traditional though, go for it. You'll find a small sign on the road pointing at a tiny staircaise going downstairs. Go down and you'll find the place. It's very small and only has a few tables, and you'll probably be sitting with only locals, but that's how you tell it's an authentic place. Still gonna give it a like, but I'll look for a new place next time I'm in Tokyo.

Onigiriya Marutoyo

In my opinion one of the best stalls to try fish at Tsukiji market. Great fresh sushi, sashimi and onigiri for very inexpensive prices. The two ladies behind the counter and especially the older man are super friendly. Big thumbs up.

Tsukiji Yamachou

Little shop in outer Tskiji market that sells tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette). The place is pretty popular since it's cheap (only ¥100) so you'll probably have to wait in line, although it's fast. You can choose whether you want your omelette sweet or salty and hot or cold. I tried the sweet one just because people recommended as it is the traditional Japanese version; it was simple and good as a small snack, but I guess I'll never get used to sweet eggs. Anyways if you're at the market it's worth a try.
