[Yokohama] Best Yoshoku Restaurants in Yokohama | Greater Tokyo

Yoshoku Kimura (洋食キムラ)

Yoshoku Kimura (洋食キムラ) was established in Yokohama in 1938 by chefs trained at a Western-style restaurant in Ginza. The interior of the restaurant has a relaxed, old-fashioned design and atmosphere. The signature menu includes Hambagu (Japanese-style hamburger steak), crab cream croquettes, beef stew, pork sauté, and other standard Western dishes. The Hambagu is served on a seashell-shaped griddle. The defining characteristic of the restaurant’s Hambagu is its unique softness, which is achieved by adding fresh breadcrumbs and raw onions to the base. The Hambagu is pre-baked and left overnight to allow the spices to soak in. It is  baked again just before serving. The secret sweet demi-glace sauce with umeshu (plum wine) added has an enthralling richness. The result is a unique taste that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Center Grill (センターグリル)

Central Grill (センターグリル) was established in 1946 at the end of World War II when there was a widespread shortage of food in Japan. The intention of the founder was to provide nutritious food to as many people as possible. To that end, a variety of hearty dishes were created. The restaurant’s most ordered dish is their popular and influential version of Spaghetti Napolitan. Ketchup is added to the extra-thick (2.2 mm) noodles then stir-fried thoroughly to bring out the characteristic sweet flavor of the spaghetti. 

Another popular dish is their fluffy Omurice (rice-filled egg omelet). It is made with a generous dose of the restaurants rich and flavorful demi-glace sauce. 

The old-fashioned, stainless-steel plates used to serve the dishes have been in service since the establishment of the restaurant.
