[My favorite Kanda] Delicious lunch selected by our foreign staff


ReleaseJanuary 17, 2020

Many people may have an image that Kanda is a “town of office workers.” It is quite chaotic with many small restaurants, but there are many delicious restaurants hidden in the mix.

In this article, I will introduce “definitely delicious” restaurants that I have chosen as a foreigner from China.
*The order of explanation does not reflect any ranking.

Access to Kanda: JR Chuo Line, Yamanote Line, Keihintohoku Line and Tokyo Metro Ginza Line [Kanda station]. All restaurants are within a 5-minute walk from Kanda station (east exit).

Niigata’s local sake specialty restaurant Monzu

I think their deep-fried chicken is the most delicious in Kanda! Its size is a bit large, its outside crispy and chewy, and its inside succulent. Meat broth comes out when you take a bite.

Its batter and chicken meat are salted just right so you won’t be able to stop eating it! What makes you happy is the fact that you can eat from 3 to 10 deep-fried chicken pieces at the same price, 950 yen (tax included)! Some may say that it is a little expensive for a lunch, but I will not eat deep-fried chicken anywhere else!

The side-dish menu for deep-fried chicken varies by day.

Hinata-shi Jitokko Association Kanda

It’s a chicken-dish specialty shop that is directly connected to an association raising Miyazaki’s local chicken, “Miyazaki Jitokko.” For lunch, they also have dishes like chicken namban curry, chicken rice and mini chicken namban, a seafood bowl and negitoro bowl, besides the popular chicken namban set. It has a good nutritional balance with salad, pickled vegetables and miso soup.
