Marukotei is your best option here for a healthy yet filling set meal. They specialize in dishes made with tororo (yam). You can get sets with tuna sashimi, pickles, seaweed salad and a bowl of rice mixed with barley, and of course some Japanese yam that you pour on your rice. The grated yam, shirasu (young sardines) and shrimp bowl is a very popular option here. Might sound like a strange mix but it is very delicious! Expect to pay between 1,000 and 2,000 yen.
