Downtown Teishoku(Meal Sets)Oct. 08, 2015 UPDATE
Relax and enjoy a nutritionally balanced Japanese meal set


Our Japanese-style diner is located near Karasuma Oike station. The interior design features a lot of wood, making the place feel like a fashionable cafe. Teishoku is a Japanese-style meal set with rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, and grilled fish or something deep fried. At Soto, in addition to our nine different styles of teishoku, we also serve desserts, curry rice, and side dishes that go well with white rice. Our meal sets are both hearty, nutritious, and reasonably priced at ¥700 - 800. ...moreIt’s the perfect easy way to enjoy a Japanese meal.

Good for Fans
Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
They’re open until midnight! It’s so good to have a place I can go for dinner when it gets that late. I’m also really happy that their meal set prices don’t go up when it gets late.
Today’s set meal
1Must Eat !
Today’s set meal / ¥680
Our specials are different every day. These are popular with our long-time regular customers and always a good choice when you are not sure what to order.
*Pictured above is our deep-fried mackerel with teriyaki sauce.
Deep-fried chicken
2Must Eat !
Deep-fried chicken / ¥730
Try our thick juicy aromatic fried chicken that’s just salty enough. Be careful not to burn yourself, as it’s very hot.
16 grain mixed rice
3Let's Try !
16 grain mixed rice / You can change it from white rice
It’s more nutritious than white rice, has a characteristic sesame flavor, and the texture of all those grains is not to be missed.
4Let's Try !
furikake / Free
Use these seasonings to add flavor to white rice. You will find them on the tables in the containers with the orange caps. Just shake as much as you like onto your rice and enjoy.
*3 flavors
NORITAMA adds the flavor of toasted seaweed and egg.
WASABI adds wasabi flavor.
SYAKE adds salmon flavor.
How to Order & Eat
soto How to Order & EatSimply choose your meal set, then select either white rice or 16grain mixed rice. If you’re not feeling that hungry, why not order a beer and a side dish, or coffee and dessert?
- Order Tips -
We recommend those who want to try a variety of Japanese foods order Fermented soybeans or Picked plum as a side dish. They can be an acquired taste but they go great with white rice.
