Kuruma - Best Oyakodon in Tokyo Station

Ultimate Dish: Gokujo Oyakodon (極上親子丼)
If you are on a budget trip and do not have an idea where to eat around Tokyo Station for lunch, try Kuruma (車).  Kuruma, known for its excellent Oyakodon (a bowl of rice topped with chicken and eggs), is perhaps one of the hottest local restaurants around this area. 
The Gokujo Oyakodon (980 Yen) has a perfect blend of the rich taste of the golden egg and the freshness of the meat as you can see on the picture.  Every bite is pleasure to remember.  The chickens are cooked just right, exactly the way we like them to be. It is so good that we are always caught in a situation to decide on whether we should do a second bowl. 
The atmosphere is lively and energetic. Among many tempting choices on the menu, the Gokujo Oyakodon is just exceptionally good.  We would go back again just for that.

    We were walking around Tokyo station the other day and found this place on Picrumb. We ordered the Gokujo Oyakodon as recommended. And got shocked..... This was by far the best Oyakodon we have ever had! We are actually visiting Kyoto by taking bullet train from Tokyo Station tomorrow and thinking about stopping by at this restaurant again. We became the huge fan of Kuruma now. lol. Nice work Picrumb!
