Gourmet naval restaurant passed down through the generations

The predecessor of Jiyu-ken, which actually used to be found in a different location, was a former navy cook. The demi-glace sauce recipe that has been passed down from that predecessor is known for its light body and strong acidic taste, dishing up the original “navy flavor” to modern times. In addition to former gourmet navy cuisine, you can also find other dishes like ramen as well as Western food such as fried foods and chicken rice.

The revived flavor of the navy, “battleship Yamato omu-rice with demi-glace sauce”

The most popular gourmet dish among naval cuisine is the “battleship Yamato omu-rice with demi-glace sauce” (served with black tea, 1,000 yen). This dish features half-cooked eggs with generous servings of ketchup sauce, covered by the light demi-glace secret sauce. It is said that the 3 green peas on top are placed there in the traditional navy style as odd-numbers are considered good luck.
