The pleasant warmth of homemade cooking. A local 'Western food' restaurant near Shimogamo Jinja. From Shimogamo Jinja cross Shimogamo Hondoori Street, and in the middle of a residential block, down a narrow alley, you'll find the restaurant Youshouku Norakuro ("Western food" Norakuro).
Inside, the simple decor is very much that of an old-fashioned Western restaurant. The atmosphere is quite relaxing.
Their set meals A, B, C, N, and S come in five variations: 2100 yen, 1300 yen, 1100yen, 1200yen and 1200 yen.
On this day, we went with set meal B (1300 yen). Set B is a combo of crab cream croquette, hamburg steak, and fried shrimp. It comes with rice. Since we're on the subject of set plates: the A set is steak and fried shrimp, the C set is cream croquette and hamburg steak, the N set is fried shrimp and hamburg steak, and the S set is fried shrimp and crab cream croquette.
The cream croquette is crunchy on the outside and gooey in the middle with a creamy crab sauce. It's the most popular item on any Western menu. The hamburg steak is a classic one with a mild, tender flavor.
The fried shrimp is served with tartar sauce for dipping.
Set B is a combination of everyone's three favorite classic dishes. Although ordering it may make you feel like a kid again, even as a grown-up it still tastes great!
The menu also boasts Turkish rice (pilaf and spaghetti topped with a fried pork cutlet), pork chops, cutlet curry, and lots of other appetizing foods. All of them look amazing. When you visit Shimogamo Jinja, definitely stop by!
