Review excerpt: Hyakushokuya, “100 meal shop,” makes 100 meals a day — and that’s it. The daily challenge for staff is to make and serve them as fast possible, so that they can take the rest of the day off. It seems that this is typically accomplished by the end of lunchtime, at which point a chalkboard is placed outside the entrance informing diners that Hyakushokuya won’t be opening for the evening. So, what’s the secret to their success? Decent servings of reasonably priced, tasty Japanese wagyu.
In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
