When your stomach calls for a quick Japanese food fix that doesn’t break the bank, Tokyo Tokyo is the answer. From ramen to donburi, the fast food chain offers several options from the cuisine. But one of their most satisfying (and bang-for-your-buck) items on the menu are their bentos. For less than PHP200, you get a combo of unlimited rice, side vegetables, and your choice of meat or seafood.
Of all their bentos, Beef Misono is the one that everyone orders without a second thought. Quit pretending that you have to think about what you’re getting—you know you’re going to end up with this.
Save yourself from harboring the guilt of eating at another fast food restaurant this week, and make the dish at home with our Tokyo Tokyo food hack. It comes out a bit salty, so feel free to dip it in some ponzu to add some sweetness.
Note: Beef sliced specifically for this dish can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets, or at specialty Korean/Japanese groceries where red pickled ginger can be found as well.
