Lunch/dinner prices at Kintame (Monzennakacho)

Luther Feb 8, 2010 12:32 AM

I'm planning on going for the highly recommended gindara and bubu chazuke at Kintame. Can anybody tell me how expensive lunch is compared to dinner? I'd prefer to go for lunch to save money but may not have time and I want to know how much of a splurge dinner might be.

    I don't think they are even open for dinner. They are open 11:00 AM-5:00 PM or something like that, and it is quite cheap, and most excellent. There is a branch at the Daimaru in Tokyo station, don't know what the hours of that one are, though.

      For gindara, nothing beats the lunch place with the old ladies in Kanda. Uncle Yabai, do you remember what it was called? I have forgotten. (Though I have not forgotten the impossibly tasty, melt-in-your-mouth gindara, which will be with me forever. The best-spent 1,200 Yen ever.)

        It is called Hasegawa. Between the 4 of them, there are 1,000 years of accumulated fish grilling experience. Was just there today, and on the way back ran into the squirrel, who went to Esaki on Friday.

          Hi Uncle Yabai, Asomaniac,

          Do you have the address (in Japanese and English) for Hasegawa in Kanda? Thanks.

                That's the place. The gindara is quite good, but then again the other fish was pretty great as well.

              Esaki was wonderful, made all the better by the surprise.

            Would it be awkward to get a meal there if I were carrying a piece of luggage?

              No, there should be some place to store it, as long as it isn't Aunt Clara's steamer trunk.
