Food & Drinks

1. Botejyu Yatai (Yakisoba)

Botejyu Yatai offers food made on a hibachi grill, focusing especially on yakisoba, a dish made of noodles grilled with vegetables and other ingredients. The most recommended dish of theirs is the one in the photo, called "omusoba." Omusoba is noodles flavored with sauce and covered with runny eggs. The mild flavor of the eggs mixes with the yakisoba for a great taste.

There are a few sushi restaurants in Narita Airport, but this is one that's particularly recommended. Sushiden uses the best ingredients and the skills of professional chefs to make excellent sushi.

3. Tentei (Tempura)

This is a restaurant where you can enjoy one of Japan's representative foods, tempura. Since they offer fresh ingredients right out of the fryer, you can enjoy your food while it's still crispy. This is one of the few restaurants in Narita Airport with a halal certification, so Muslims can eat here without problems.

6. Kyotaru (Sushi)

The sushi offered at Kyotaru isn't the usual sushi where seafood rests on top of vinegared rice, but instead they offer "kamigatazushi," in which vinegared rice, seafood, and vegetables are wrapped together in nori seaweed. It uses colorful ingredients so the bento is full of colors like red and yellow so it's a great souvenir as well.

7. Sanbei (Udon) 

You can eat Japan's famous Sanuki udon at this restaurant. The special broth offered by Sanbei and the plump noodles match perfectly. They also offer delicious tendon, a rice bowl with fried seafood on top, so you can try that as well.

9. Takopon (Takoyaki) 

You can enjoy genuine Osaka takoyaki here. The price is reasonable and the size is perfect for when you're feeling just a little peckish. It's a restaurant that you can stop by casually, so it's especially good for people traveling on their own. Why not have some delicious takoyaki as a snack with a glass of liquor?

10. La Toque (Curry)

This curry specialty restaurant offers Japanese curry that uses kombu seaweed and soy sauce as a base to create a curry vastly different from Indian and western curry. While dishes like sushi and sukiyaki have become representative of Japanese food, actually Japanese-style curry is another dish that should be considered representative of Japan.
