Time Out says

Just in front of Mejiro Station, you can find one of the best yoshoku (Japanese-style Western food) restaurants in the city. While all yoshoku food has the same origins – the late 1800s-early 1900s, when Japan first opened its doors to the world and Western dishes flooded in – the quality at Mejiro is outstanding. 

Chef Koga, who trained in France and Japan, cooks all the classic yoshoku dishes, from steaks and croquettes to stews and salads, using modern cooking techniques and equipment to take the dishes to new heights. Our favourites are the menchi katsu mince cutlet (¥900), and the juicy hamburg patty made with 100% local wagyu and served with broccoli, green beans and roasted potatoes (from ¥1,500). 

All dishes come served in or with sauces made from a blend of Japanese and Western ingredients that’s characteristic of yoshoku, like Dijon mustard, wasabi, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Be sure to leave space for one of Meijiro's famous kakigori desserts, a mound of fluffy shaved ice topped with seasonal fruit compote (from ¥500).
