The Company Meal for Everyone, SHASHOKUDO

The company cantina would’t typically have much draw power, but this dream-like cantina in Yoyogiuehara serves Suppose Design Office, which is an architecture company. However, they’ve opened it to the general public. Partially underground with strategically placed windows to offer natural light, this spacious restaurant seats about thirty and offers a cozy space where customers can enjoy a relaxing meal away from the bustle of the station. The menu includes course meals offering the choice between meat or fish, curry, or a chicken and egg rice bowl—and the restaurant is open all day. “When you are busy, meal times tend to be irregular. We want to support the health of our employees and local society,” said Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida, the company representatives. The home-cooked meals include three small vegetable dishes such as boiled vegetables mixed with olive oil and keema curry finished off with a punch of pepper. The company employees offer advice on what types of dishes the chef should explore, and the menu evolves a little every day. Once you SHASHOKUDO, you’ll want to go back.
