銀之塔 outside
Ginza has many restaurants which have been open for over 50 years and considered well-established restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants in Ginza for lunch is GINNOTOU, which specializes in authentic beef and tongue stew.

銀之塔 beef stew
Ginnotou's menu is pretty simple. They only offer four dishes. First is BEEF STEW for 2,500 yen , which is extra tender and rich in flavor, but not oily at all.

Second is YASAI STEW (Vegetable stew) for 2,500 yen. No meat, just boiled vegetables.

銀之塔 mix stew
Third is MIX STEW (Beef & vegetable stew) for 2,500 yen.

Four is TONGUE STEW for 3,500 yen, which is more popular than beef stew to regulars. They also have mix of tongue and vegetable stew for 3,500 yen.

銀之塔 ミニグラタン
There only none stew dish is GRATIN for 1,800 yen. This is another classic yoshoku dish with macaroni, shrimp and mushrooms.

And if you want both stew and gratin, there is STEW GRATIN MINI SET (Regular size beef, vegetable or mix stew & small size gratin) for 3,700 yen. Most customers order stew gratin mini set, not just the stew. If you want tongue instead of beef, its 1,000 yen more. All the stews come with rice and oshinko (pickled vegetables).

and the stew goes great with rice.

銀之塔 inside
There are actually two famous stew restaurants in Ginza, but since Ginnotou does delivery for the kabuki actors who perform at the kabuki theater near by it is better known to the public. I personally enjoy both restaurants, but since Ginnotou offers gratin and the other doesn't, I end up going to Ginnotou more. Its a little expensive for lunch, but if you are in Ginza and want to have something authentic which stood the test of time, try stew and gratin at Ginnotou.
