Negi Negi in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

So this is the restaurant that we were really going for tonight (2-16-7 Honmachi, 03-6300-4863). As the name suggests, they specialize in leeks and spring onions. Basically every dish that they had here had some form of green onions in it, including dessert and alcohol too. We got a lot of different varieties, including grilled leeks, pickled leeks, leeks on top of karaage, leeks on top of pizza, natto with green onions, and leeks in a bubbling hot pan of oil (I don't think they had any with romesco sauce though). After a while, it was almost *too* much onion without enough body. That's when that bowl above came in, with that lovely egg yolk and spring onions all coming together nicely with those pearly beads of rice. And yes, now my breath really stinks.
