Where Can We Get Full in Shinjuku, Japan? BIG Noodle Rice


Izakaya DEN (居酒屋 田)

One of Onegai Kaeru team members went around Tokyo in search of cheap and big food when he was a hungry and poor student. He still loves large and not expensive food.  


Even the trip itself could be not as great but at least the food should be great and satisfying. 


Continued from the previous "Where can we get FULL in Ginza", We will introduce some restaurant and cafe where you can eat cheap and a lot. 

Please note that these places may have their rules about the food such as if you can not finish eating it, you may need to pay some penalty. Please order with caution!


Are you hungry in Shinjuku?  Walking through these skyscrapers all day, you may be hungry by now.


We will introduce more places to eat cheap and a lot. Today we introduce one a bit far from Shinjuku station (to make sure you are ready for the big food). 

The place is in Nakai (中井) area ( still in Shinjuku ward). Izakaya (Japanese style bar) Den has a big fried noodle and rice. 

BE CAREFUL! Before you order, ask your stomach if it is ready to take a big punch. If you failed to finish it, you need to pay DOUBLE! And the place is only open at night, not day time.
