One of the oldest continuously operating restaurants in Ningyocho, Houmitei has been in business since 1933. Often mistaken for a traditional soba eatery, its speciality is actually a seriously retro version of yoshoku, the Japanese form of 'Western' cuisine that originated in the Meiji era. If you only go here once, make sure to try the tongue stew, a flavourful concoction consisting of soft beef tongue cooked in demi-glace sauce until perfectly tender. The Yoshoku Bento box (pictured above), a sort of tasting selection of the restaurant's most popular dishes, is another highlight.
