Meijiken in Shinsaibashi

Founded 90 years ago, this long-established Western food restaurant is known for its "omu-rice" omelet rice and "kushikatsu" deep-fried cutlets on skewers.

For today’s lunch I went to the Western food restaurant “Meijiken” that is in Shinsaibashi.
It has been a while since I went to this long-established Western food restaurant in Shinsaibashi that is well-known and well-loved!
While it has the usual Western food menu, if you are talking about Meijiken then you have to order this!
“Omu-rice and three kushikatsu set” (¥980)
This combination platter with the omu-rice and kushikatsu is the restaurant’s specialty, and I hear that it is a menu item that has not changed since the place was founded!


When you cut the omu-rice, it is full of ketchup rice that is hidden inside!



The fluffy egg, the pleasant sourness of the demi-glace sauce, and the sweetness of the ketchup rice are a splendid combination and taste delicious!




The tender meat goes well with the refreshing flavor of the citrus-based “ponzu” vinegar sauce!





While there are various items on the menu, over half of the customers in the restaurant are eating omu-rice and kushikatsu.
While the restaurant is completely packed with customers, the unique atmosphere of the place is soothing.
I would like for the flavor of this famous restaurant to continue to be handed down for a long time to come.(^^
