Lunch at Japan’s Iron Chef Restaurant Rokusaburo Michiba

Kaishoku Michiba is another one of those old school restaurants, loved by the older generation, where iron chef Rokusaburo Michiba’s roast beef bowl is to die for.

The restaurant is located in Ginza with an easy to spot facade as pictured above.

The elevator lobby interior had a vintage yet homey ambiance.

As you can see the restaurant attracts an older more conservative crowd.

I made a last-minute reservation and could not be accommodated at the dining area, they offered me the bar counter which was rather narrow yet cozy.

You might have some problem deciphering the menu.

Since it is my second time here, I’ve decided to order the roast beef again.

The lovely appetizer plate consisted of five seasonal items. The roast cheese is always in the serving and is my favorite.

As I mentioned before, the roast beef main course is simply to die for. We fell silent until we finished the whole serving.

For dessert, they had a mix berry pannacotta which was just the right size.

I like this restaurant. The food is just the right size, right price and great taste. It’s one of those places I would recommend to my friends.

The whole lunch menu costs 5000 yen (approx. 45 dollars at current rate) and is a good place to go for lunch.

Price $$
