tokyo fast food

- beef, rice, and soup: 580 yen


[not the best photo, it feels really wrong to be taking photos in japanese restaurants for some reason so i rushed it]

tired from waking up at 3:30 am to make it to the airport in time to get to tokyo, i left the hostel and ate at the first place i found. i think it's the japanese equivalent of a burger joint, it took all of 3 minutes between ordering and being served.

notice the egg, i didn't quite figure out how to use it properly in time, i took my best guess and did what i do with korean food (mix it in with the hottest thing on the table [the beef]) but it turns out you beat it, season it, and use it to dip the beef in. at least i was close =P

regardless of the egg, it was pretty good, and certainly exactly what i needed after a six hour flight, two hour train/subway ride and 1 hour wander through the neighbourhood looking for the hostel.
