The restaurant is well-known for serving Kaicho Steak (会長ステーキ), Omelette with Rice and Hamburger Steak and Okra and Natto Spaghetti (オクラ納豆スパゲッティ), and has been loved by local people.

    Okra and Natto Spaghetti

    I visited here to eat the Okra and Natto Spaghetti around 16:30 on a weekday. I sat at a table seat, and ordered it. The price was JPY 1030. A former restaurant owner said "The Okra and Natto Spaghetti has been popular since its foundation. The Kaicho Steak is also recommended". I will order the Kaicho Steak next tme!

    About 10 minutes later, the Okra and Natto Spaghetti on a hot pan with a dish of salad and a cup of soup was served. I felt uneasy whether sticky ingredients went well with spaghetti, but it went well with mild scrambled egg, and it was very tasty! Those were burnt on a burning hot iron plate, and stickiness turned into a savory smell. I was going to get hooked on this mild taste. That was unexpected. Thanks for the good meal!
