Shinbashi has many great lunch places since the area is surrounded by many small to big companies, but there is a Japanese restaurant which is probably the hardest lunch restaurant to get a seat, serving only 10 meals, opens only on Wednesday, great value and delicious is BUDOHYA.

ぶどう家 まかない
Budohya serves one lunch plate only for 1,000 yen called MAKANAI TEISHOKO (Lunch plate). It has all you want in a Japanese lunch plate. Sashimi, Dashimaki Tamago (Egg omelette), various Nimono (boiled vegetables), Yakimono (Broiled fish), and Agemono (Deep fried vegetables or fish).

What's in the plate changes every week, but what makes this lunch plate special is the quality of each item. Each item is as good as any top restaurants dinner menu. (In this picture, instead of yakimono its shrimp and vegetable tempura)

ぶどう家 chasoba
It could also be some kind of noodle at times like the above picture, which is CHASOBA (Cold green tea soba).

ぶどう家 rice
Of course, it comes with a bowl of rice, where the rice is from Uonuma, Nigata, one the top rice areas of Japan and most expensive. You can have extra rice, but you will have to pay an extra couple of hundred yen.

ぶどう家 miso soup
The soup is usually a MISO SOUP,

ぶどう家 suimono
but it could be a SUIMONO (Clear soup) depending on the chef's mood.

ぶどう家 outside
If you want to dine here, you better get here at least around 11:40 am and wait online. Also, they will only take singles or a party of 2. If you go there with more than 3 people and even if you don't talk to each other or split waiting online, if they think you know each other, they ask you to leave even if you get in here once. I have no idea why they have such a rule, so if you don't agree with their policy don't even think of eating here. But their lunch plate is one of the best in Tokyo and no matter how long you waited online, if there are 10 people in front of you, you won't get it. Also, it use to be opened on other days and had another dish for lunch, but its now only Wednesday with one lunch plate only. Therefore, they won't even take your order once you get in.
