A restaurant specialized in Kama-meshi and Skewers, with a great deal of  the old town atmosphere

Asadori is specialized in Kama-meshi and Skewers. Kame-meshi is a dish which has rice, meat, and vegetables boiled together in a small pot. In Japan people often use skewers to grill chicken, pork, vegetables, etc.

This restaurant fronts on the narrow street that is one street on the west from Nakamise Street. Nakamise Street is always crowded with visitors.

You will just want to stop by when you see the restaurant because of the tasteful appearance.

It’s not much luxury inside but it is comfortable and calming old town-atmosphere that you can feel in Asakusa.

As the customer base is rather elderly, you can enjoy your meal and talks leisurely.

You can see 5 cooks in the kitchen. Then I saw one young boy doing his job and being scolded. This reminds me of the master and pupil relationship that was popular in Showa Era.

Kama-meshi takes 30 minutes to cook!!!

In this restaurant, employees are also elderly and, thus, ladies are wearing kimono. This gives an old town atmosphere.

I was pleased by how the ladies attended people with full of love. They were like mothers.

While I was waiting for my dish to come, they gave me a teapot, which was full of tea, and I spent the time enjoying it.

After 30 minutes, came the bowl, pickled vegetables and the main dish, kama-meshi.

I ordered chicken kama-meshi!

Oh! It looks delicious.

Even though it’s ‘chicken kama-meshi,’ it includes bamboo shot, shiitake mushroom, so I felt like I got benefit.

The dark-brown miso soup that was served had nameko mushrooms, green onion and tofu. It tasted like a dish served in a first-class Japanese restaurant.

Kama-meshi with high-quality ingredients

The finest chicken was minced up so carefully that I could taste the good flavor of the chicken. It tastes more delicious when it’s eaten with the rice boiled in a pot.

Bamboo shoots add a crunchy texture to the dish and shiitake mushrooms are nice and a little thick.

I was very satisfied by this well-balanced kama-meshi.

I left the lid of the pot opened after helping my self to kama-meshi but then one of the ladies came to me. She told me that it’s better to have the lid on to take the scorched rice easier. Wow, I didn’t know that until then.

It was true, it was much easier to take off the scorched rice. Genius!

They also have seats on the upstairs. People who want to go must consider the waiting time because of many groups that come in the lunchtime.

The good atmosphere of the restaurant made the kama-meshi much special.
