  • Even before the store opens, a line is sure to form. The menu has only one type of zeitaku don (extravagant rice bowl). There are different ingredients depending on the rank (ume, take, matsu, and tokujo). In addition to seafood, such as tuna, salmon row, prawns, whelk, and salted herring roe, the rice bowl is served with egg yolk and soy sauce.
