Tamahide will be easy to find as there is a perpetual line out the front door. The large white building looks like a castle with the large stones surrounding its base. Opened in 1760, this fifth generation shop is synonymous with a dish called oyakodon. Literally, mother and child, this dish is made from chicken cooked in a sweet soy broth with eggs added at the last minute until they just start to set. This is poured over a bowl of rice and eaten with a lacquer spoon. If you want to upgrade the dish ask for the duck and to downgrade ask for ground chicken. Seating is communal at low horigotatsu tables, with a hole under the table to put your feet into. For a real treat come in the evening for a full chicken sukiyaki course.
