Ticket Food

July 24th, 2008

There is a kind of restaurant in Japan where, instead of ordering to a waiter, or ordering your food at the counter, you buy a tickets for the items of food you want, turn them in at the counter, and pick up your food. Makes sense in a way, but it really feels cafeteria-ish, too much so for a mainstream restaurant experience. But these are fairly common in Japan, at least enough so that you have a good chance of spotting one on any given day.

    I like this kind of restaurant as long as I can figure out what the heck the tickets are for. There is a good tsukemen restaurant in Kishibojin that uses a ticket machine. All the tickets for the tsukemen are the same price, from 100 grams all the way up to 1000 grams. I never ordered more than 300 grams because I would feel like a jerk if I couldn’t finish the meal.
