Akebono Teishoku あけぼの 定食

Akebono Teishoku / あけぼの 定食

Akebono is a restaurant specialized in mixed dishes or "lunch set" (teishoku) of "katsudon". It is the Katsudon temple in Tokyo, considered number 1 in this specialty. Usually, there are always hungry salarymen (office workers) waiting. The place is very famous that's opened in 1967. It is small (11 people in an L-shaped bar) but the service is fast and extra efficient. While you stand in line, they take your order so that when you sit down you have your food as quickly as possible. Almost 80% o ... f customers order "Katsudon" (tonkatsu- breaded pork chop- on top of a bowl of rice and egg) although there are also other dishes for those who do not like eggs. The preparation takes place in view of the empty stomachs, is simple but scrupulous. The aroma of the frying chops will make you salivate. A thick and generous piece of freshly fried breaded pork chop, on top of a steaming bowl of rice, poured with two beaten eggs, covered for two minutes and that's it. Meanwhile, a serving of pickles and miso soup are all set on your table. Everything is burning, the meat: a generous 2-cm cut, well fried, crispy on the outside, slightly pink on the inside, good balance of lean and fat of 4 to 1, mixed with the slightly raw egg that enhances its flavor that's sweet and sour soft. The quantities are abundant. After your meal, you will be ready to launch yourself back into the concrete jungle with energy. It's near Yurakucho station in Ginza district.
