Kagetsu is the best place to go if you’re looking to get some good fried rice while in Japan! … And I will argue you down if you say different, lol. My family goes to Kagetsu at least once a week! It’s so cheap; an order of fried rice (which comes with onion soup) and gyoza cost about ¥860! I think that’s an awesome deal! Even though, fried rice is all I order when we go, there are other things to choose from, like: ramen.
One of the things I find cool about Kagetsu is the ticket vending machine! It’s fast and simple. Place your money into the machine, choose what you want, then a little ticket with your ordered on it pops out from the bottom. You can sit wherever there is space and a waitress will come bring you water and collect your tickets.
The rice comes on a hot plate with eggs on the bottom, green onions, and butter on top. Once you get your food, you have to mix it using two giant ( okay, not giant but big) spoons. You want to mix your food while the plate is sizzling hot, so it will cook properly. The process is so fast, that I never have enough time to snap a picture of mixing it.. Maybe I’ll try next week! (You know, since I go so much, lol.)
So Tell Me…
Do you like fried rice? Or Gyoza and Ramen?
Do you have a favorite place to get good food at a reasonable price?
