Come lunchtime, Morikawa presents three delightful options: the celebrated “Ultimate Oyakodon,” the enticing “Fried Chicken Set,” and a unique daily special. The standout choice undoubtedly is the Ultimate Oyakodon—a harmonious blend of chicken, egg, and rice in a richly flavored broth. For a mere 250 yen, indulge in Morikawa’s signature dish: succulent fried chicken thigh. Its crispy exterior gives way to tender, juicy meat within. Pair it with the Oyakodon for a truly unforgettable culinary experience.
