Masayoshi: Special Take-Out Menu
When the whole coronapocaplyse shut down dine-in eating at restaurants, it was a bit of an inconvenience at first… then I started to realize just how often I ate at restaurants – turns out we’re saving a lot of money by me not eating out. After a couple of weeks, I started to get cravings for Japanese food and it so happened that I saw that Masayoshi was going to offer special take-out meals. I’ve had Masayoshi on my radar for a long time but never found the time to visit in person before so I figured this was serendipitous.
Based on the prices they were advertising, I knew this would be hugely popular so I made sure to pre-order as soon as they opened. Sure enough, things started selling out really quick so I’m glad that I put in my order early… Edomae Chirashi ($25), Pork Belly “Kakuni” ($18), Niku Jyaga Japanese Beef Stew ($8), and Tonjiru Japanese Pork Stew ($8)
The stews/soups are considered part of their “staff meals” and were actually quite hearty and filling and at a really good price point.
I really liked the pork belly kakuni as it was super tender. It goes well with rice so we used some of the sushi rice that was in the chirashi.
The Edomae Chirashi was the obvious highlight of this meal and I heard later on that it sold out super fast. I honestly can’t name all of the various chopped up ingredients that went in this dish but it was so fresh and you could taste the care that went into preparing it.
Their take-out menu is always changing so make sure you check them out if you’re looking for some great Japanese food.
