If you arrive at Tokyo Station early in the morning by night bus or Shinkansen and feel like having breakfast, why not go to a restaurant called Yaesu Hatsufuji at the Yaesu Exit of Tokyo Station? Around Tokyo Station, famous restaurants such as Rokurinsha, Sendaitan, and Rikyu, which are popular for their tsukemen, also have morning service, but unlike these restaurants, Yaesu Hatsufuji offers a home-style breakfast. You can eat at a reasonable price.
When I arrived at the store 10 minutes before opening time, there were already a few people waiting for their breakfast just like me. We all dream of a gourmet breakfast served by a famous restaurant, but it’s also nice to start the day with a hearty breakfast…
Full activities from breakfast to lunch to the pub at night… Yaes Hatsufuji is a restaurant like this…
Yaesu Hatsufuji is an izakaya located in the Yaesu Underground Mall (commonly known as Yaechika) located under the Yaesu Exit of JR Tokyo Station. Although its main business is an izakaya, it is open from 7 a.m. until closing time, serving breakfast (7:00-11:00), lunch (11:00-16:00), and alcoholic beverages. This is a restaurant that is fully operational, changing the menu offered depending on the time of day, from 16:00 to closing time.
According to the store’s official page, Yaesu Hatsufuji has a total of 68 seats, including counter seats. It’s a relatively large store in the basement, so you can relax even if you have big luggage. It has a pub-like atmosphere that makes it easy to get into, and I’m sure you’ll be fine even if you’re bringing small children with you.
Yaesu Hatsufuji’s morning pork soup set meal is fragrant and has a lot of ingredients… What do you mean it’s cheaper than the natto set meal?
Now, let me introduce you to the pork soup set meal that I ordered at Yaesu Hatsufuji. As expected, it was on the breakfast menu, and it was brought right in front of me after I ordered…
Like this, in addition to pork soup and rice, the set comes with pickles, a small side dish, and seasoned seaweed. You can also get a large serving of rice for free, which is great when you want to pack in plenty of nutrients from the morning.
Now, let’s have some pork soup…The base is a sweet white miso soup, and when you put it in your mouth, the fluffy aroma of sesame wafts up to your nose. Are you using sesame oil? A fragrant and flavorful miso soup. In addition to pork, there are many other ingredients inside, such as carrots, daikon radish, and burdock. The overall volume is solid, so you can get all the nutrients you need for the day’s activities starting in the morning.
Yaesu Hatsufuji’s pork soup set meal like this is definitely a great value. If you can eat a set meal like this in the morning, you’ll be able to get off to a good start at work that day. Breakfast here is recommended for businessmen and businesswomen who work near Tokyo Station. Still, it’s a mystery that this pork soup set meal is 100 yen cheaper than the natto set meal.
