① It warms your mind and body. Brown rice lunch, “Umikaji.”
First of all, I would like to introduce “Umikaji (Sea Breeze)”. Normally it is read as “Umikaze”, but in this shop, it is read as “Umikaji”. We recommend this restaurant for those who want to eat organic Japanese food. At lunchtime, the restaurant is full of businessmen and health-conscious women, but the turnover rate is fairly fast, so don’t give up and wait.
Daily special brown rice meal
The main course of the brown rice set meal is a daily special. The main dish at this time was tender eggplant and hamachi simmered in the countryside. It’s a great way to get to know each other. The restaurant’s brown rice is made from nutrient-rich, completely pesticide-free rice cooked in a pressure cooker and earthenware pot, so it’s sticky and sweet! If you’re tired of eating and drinking too much, you might want to try this lunch.

Tori Ten, Tai Chikuwa Ten & Onsen Tamago no Bukkake
(Tori-ten, sea bream chikuwa-ten and hot spring egg on top Udon)
This is an udon that is recommended on the menu. The first thing that surprised me was the beauty and shine of the udon. It can be described as “Beautiful Naudon-san”. It goes into your mouth smoothly, but when you bite into it, the noodles are very elastic and firm, and the oil from the tempura and the soup stock are very good! The big, warm tori-ten and chikuwa-ten are not only crispy but also delicious.

BINDU is located about a 7-minute walk from Ogimachi Station. There is a shop on the basement floor of the building.
Salad, choice of curry, naan or rice, and drink. On this day, I chose the butter chicken curry.
It’s not a unique taste, but a mild, richly delicious taste. At first glance, it looks like it’s not much, but it’s just the right amount, and oh my! You can eat all-you-can-eat naan at lunch time, so even if you eat a lot, there is no problem. At lunchtime (around 12:00), there are a lot of businessmen nearby, but the shop rotates quickly, so be sure to wait a bit.

Bolognaise pasta with French bolognaise pork
Salad & Drink Set
+ 200 yen
The pasta offered is a bit compact in size. However, the noodles are quite sticky and heavy. It was originally an Italian dolce shop, so it’s just the right amount considering that you can even eat dessert. So, after lunch, it’s time to go to the first floor for a cafe! It might be a good idea to do something like that.

Teriyaki cream cheese burger
The combination of teriyaki and cream cheese is the best. The patty has a lumpy and distinctive texture. Not too soft, not too hard, just the right bite, and delicious!
