【Under lighthouse living】

A store that already existed when I was working in Akasaka eight years ago, but I had never visited.
When I visited the other day after 1:00 p.m., I gave up on the store as they were getting ready to close.

This time there was one person waiting and I was second in line. The time is 12:40. There is a tatami room, but there are usually 5 seats at the counter.
After 5 minutes, you will be shown to a counter seat.

The menu only includes Tekkadon.
Since it was my first time, I didn't know what was going on, so the person next to me ordered ``medium,'' so I ordered ``medium, but with less rice,'' and he reminded me, ``Medium means it's a good portion, so it's less.'' "Yes..." he said obediently. I actually wanted to make the tuna a little bigger, but it seems like that's not the case...

After that, I waited quietly and nervously for 10 minutes...the ``Tekka-don'' was handed to me over the counter. Composed of lean meat, medium-fatty fatty meat, medium-fatty fatty meat, fried egg, gari, chopped seaweed, and wasabi on top. I'm glad that there are quite a lot of red meat and medium-fatty meat.
Depending on how you look at it, it looks like a beautiful arrangement of roses.

At first I made wasabi soy sauce and ate it with that, but halfway through I decided to pour wasabi soy sauce on top and eat it. The lean meat is delicious, and the medium fatty meat is even more delicious. I eat mid-way through to change the taste, but it's also delicious.

Gari is a little sweet. A person who came after me said, ``It's large, and the gari is also large,'' and I was impressed that there was a way to order like that. Let's try it next time. Less rice, more gari...

The thing to keep in mind is that you have to be careful about the order and distribution of rice, such as lean meat, medium-fatty meat, and medium-fatty meat. In the end, I want to finish with medium-fatty fatty tuna, so I think about the order in which I eat. Lean meat → medium-fatty meat → lean meat → gari → half of the egg roll... and so on.

Somehow, I was able to finish with a mid-to-low finish.

Along the way, I also enjoyed a nice change of pace with the somewhat bland miso soup with freshwater clams (actually, this light flavor allows the tuna to take center stage).

Finally, accounting. A flat price of 1,300 yen including tax for both large and small servings. It was a feast.

This famous restaurant is quietly located on the second floor of a multi-tenant building, where it's not uncommon to see long lines.
Do my juniors working in Akasaka know about the store?


As others have commented, you can eat the best tekka bowl.
It comes with plenty of lean, medium-fatty, and sukiyaki tuna, and you can choose the amount of vinegared rice to be large, medium, or average.
As I was drinking the miso soup with fresh clams, I was asked if I would like a second helping.
Hospitality that is confirmed.

Well, not only is the red part sticky and delicious, but it's also the perfect part, with no streaks, no medium-fatty texture, and no bloody streaks.
It's delicious, it's plentiful, and it's been a long time since I've had a delicious tuna bowl.

I ate it yesterday and it was so delicious that I had it again today.
It was still delicious.
