I seldom go to family restaurants in Japan. Just in case, family restaurats are like Denny's or something like that, we call so in Japan. Anyway, today I went to one foe them called COCOS in Nasu. COCOS is of course a chain restaurant so that we can find them many places in Japan, not only in Nasu.
AS ai mentioned above, I don't use this type of restaurant so often. But being in Nasu, COCOS often are really nice choice especially in hard decision on what to eat. COCOS menue has wide range of dish and most of them are reasonably not expensive and good enough for us to enjoy the meal.
Today I had hamberg steak and fried egg with rice ( as photo ). Taste was really good, and the cost was only 680 yen ( maybe 8.5 dollars or so ).
Western style food in Japan is often arranged into Japanese taste as this photo, some even say this is not Western food but Japanese food alreay. Actually I really love this kind of Japanized Western food.
Not only hamberg steaks, we can enjoy more like Pasta dish, pizza, fried rice, noodles, tonkatsu dish, curry dish....many more. If you stay longer in Japan, I think it's worth trying at least a few times at family restaurants in Japan. You will not be disappointed.
