DAYONE is a small restaurant located 4 minutes walk from Roppongi station. It is specializing in ochazuke menu. They open until 5am.
What is ochazuke?
Ochazuke or chazuke is a Japanese comfort food. They pour tea (or sometimes seafood stock) over the bowl of cooked rice and toppings (usually seaweed and seafood like salmon). It is light and easy to digest, so people commonly eat when they don't have appetite or they are sick.
Creative ochazuke menu
Besides regular ochazuke, DAYONE is known for serving the unique and a variety of ochazuke menu that you can't find anywhere else, such as curry and tomato flavors.
We ordered "Wagyu Aburi Chazuke" (1480 yen).
Wagyu is a high-quality Japanese beef and aburi means grilled, so this ochazuke (chazuke) had slices of tender beef on the top.
Time to eat
It had a lot of thinly sliced beef. They were grilled on the surface and rare on the inside.
First, you eat the rice and wagyu beef without pouring the soup. The beef itself was very tender and seasoned with sweet and savory sauce.
Then, pour the dashi over the beef and rice. The hot dashi soup and juicy beef just went perfectly with together.
Their dashi (seafood broth) is made from selected and various ingredients like seaweed and bonito. It is not too salty nor bland, and you can enjoy the natural flavor.
I recommend you to try ochazuke at DAYONE when you are in Tokyo! You will have a delicious and unique ochazuke experience.
