中栄 outside
Since my last blog was about a breakfast/lunch restaurant in Tsukiji Fish Market, I've decided to introduce only Tsukiji area restaurants for the next couple of blogs.
NAKAEI is a favorite for buyers/sellers at Tsukiji Fish Market since the food comes out within seconds and it is good as well. There are some customers who have been eating here 2-3 times a week for over 30 years. These customers keep eating the same dish that they don't even bother to order or even say "the usual". Their order will come out as soon as they have a seat.

中栄 indo curry
Nakaei serves 2 types of curry rice and another stewed item. They serve INDO CURRY (India curry) which is a little more spicier among the two curries for 500 yen.

中栄 beef
The other curry is BEEF CURRY, which is milder than Indo Curry for 500 yen as well. Even though Indo Curry is spicier, it is not all that spicy compared to real Indian curry.

中栄 hayashi
The other main item is HAYASHI RICE (Hashed Beef over Rice), which is a tomato based stew and much sweeter than Beef Curry for 500 yen. All three items use various vegetables and meets as ingredients, but it is all melted into the sauce since it is cooked for a few days.

中栄 indo hayashi aigake
You can have a mix of 2 sauces on one plate called AIGAKE, which most customers do for 600 yen. My favorite is INDO & HAYASHI AIGAKE, which is probably the most popular one as well.

中栄 indo beff aigake
Then you have INDO & BEEF AIGAKE,

中栄 beef hayashi aigake
and last one will be BEEF & HAYASHI AIGAKE. All dishes come with shredded cabbage and if you want a large portion of rice, order OHMORI for an extra 100 yen or even extra large rice, which is called TOKUDAI for an extra 200 yen. If you want more cabbage, just order KYABETSU which is 50 yen.

中栄 miso soup 50
If you want some soup to go along with it they have MISO SHIRU (Miso soup) for 50 yen

中栄 yasai soup 300
and YASAI SOUP (Vegetable soup) for 300 yen.

中栄 kanban
If you don't have time or already tried other restaurants in Tsukiji, you might wanna try Nakaei. It may look like regular curry rice, but you'll find out that its not something you can cook at home.
