Oyako Donburi ($9.95) and Pork Tofu ($10.95)

Sekiya’s Restaurant and Delicatessan owner Joy Morihara has plenty of customers who know exactly what they will be having the moment they walk through the door.

“That is what people like about us. Everybody has their favorites, so some people come in all the time and eat the same thing,” says Morihara.

If you are on the fence about what might be one of your Sekiya’s favorites, we have a few choices for you to to mull over.

For decades home-style, comfort food has been served at Sekiya’s and a menu standard is its Donburi, or rice bowl, dishes. Sekiya’s Oyako Donburi ($9.95) is a house special, which features a bowl of rice with a combination of chicken, egg and long rice.

“We also do this dish with noodles, which is actually my personal favorite. This dish has been here a long time,” Morihara adds.

Another favorite you may want to give a try is Sekiya’s Pork Tofu ($10.95). A simple meal, Pork Tofu combines pork, tofu and onions in a warm, flavored broth.

“This is a home-style kind of food, something you might sit at home and eat with your grandmother,” says Morihara.
