Done right, eggs can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just ask the folks at Sekiya’s Restaurant & Delicatessen. Since 1935, Sekiya’s has offered a mix of Japanese and local-style food to generations of appreciative eaters. They serve up a variety of dishes using fresh, locally sourced eggs.
Start your day with the Local Egg Breakfast ($6.85). Two eggs cooked however you like are served with a choice of breakfast meat plus rice or toast. It’s classic that manager Leonard “Trey” Paresa calls “simple and comforting.” Sekiya’s serves breakfast every day from 8 to 11 a.m.
The Loco Moco ($14.35) makes for an especially filling lunchtime meal. Two hamburger patties are smothered in Sekiya’s traditional brown gravy then served in a bowl over rice and topped with an egg.
Other eggy options include Oyako Donburi ($12.35), a combination of chicken, eggs, long rice and mushrooms, and Tsukimi ($10.35), saimin noodles with fishcake, green onions, a poached egg and nori strips.
Being over 80 years old itself, it’s appropriate that Sekiya’s honors seniors by offering 10 percent off menu items for customers 65 and older every Monday.
There’s one dish Paresa describes as “definitely for the dinner-time crowd,” which is Beef Sukiyaki Udon ($17.95). This local take on Japanese cuisine features your choice of chicken, beef or pork served with a generous helping of udon noodles, gobo, shiitake mushrooms, tofu and round onions then topped off with watercress and a poached egg. This complete meal is served with miso soup, rice, tsukemono and tea.
