Found right in front of Araiyakushi-mae Station on the Seibu Shinjuku line, this lively neighbourhood eatery is easy to miss, which would be a shame. Regulars and first-timers alike tend to go for the beef stew, a slowly cooked concoction of plentiful veg and equally ample amounts of tender meat, served over rice. Lightly seasoned, it's the perfect dish for both lunch and dinner. If you're visiting on a Saturday, try ordering the wagyu roast beef, Bunkichi's renowned speciality that's only available for a total of 30 diners each week.
