"Meat and rice" is the "meat and potatoes" of the East. Sato Seinikuten Tokyo 佐藤精肉店 does a great BBQ meat rice bowl with a delicious and conservative menu of 6 rice bowls all chicken or pork. There is also some zippy home made ginger or ginger and lemon soda on the menu. Sides include a poached egg, soup, and vegetables. I ordered the poached egg which had an extremely soft white, but a luxurious thick egg yolk and made sauced up all the ingredients of my rice bowl nicely. The soup is vegetables in miso broth. Its satisfying, but awkward to eat with a long wooden spoon. All of the food comes with free pickled bean sprouts which are covered in sesame oil and sit in a jar at tables.

All of the bowls come in 2 sizes, large and small. The menu is in Chinese and Japanese, which you may think should be the same, but they are not always. The Chinese menu is written with a thick white marker on colored popsicle sticks and is really hard to read, so just stick with the photo menu over the kitchen.

I like the format and style of this restaurant. Casual, affordable, reliable. The restaurant isn't relying on a huge menu, cheap ingredients, or a bunch of cute garbage to attract customers, just honest food. I hope Sato Seinikuten Tokyo 佐藤精肉店 is successful, and I hope more restaurants learn from their business model.
