Recommended Menu Items

A Delicious Pairing of Beef-Umami-Filled Hamburger and Grated Radish Sauce – “All Beef Hamburger Steak with Grated Radish Sauce”

Hamburger steaks are a classic menu item at family restaurants. Denny’s “All Beef Hamburger Steak with Grated Radish Sauce” is made using Angus beef, one of the main three beef varieties in the world. Thanks to this beef, which is rich and tender, and the time spent working with the meat, the hamburger steaks at Denny’s have a plump and tender texture. That patty is then served with grated radish sauce, a uniquely Japanese condiment. The grated daikon radish adds a spicy and refreshing flavor to the sauce, further elevating the flavors of the hamburger steak.

Fatty Bigeye Tuna Marinated in a Special Sauce - “Soy-Marinated Tuna Rice Bowl”

One of the appeals of Denny’s is that it also offers authentic Japanese cuisine. And, of course, if you’ve traveled to Japan, you absolutely should try raw tuna, a quintessential Japanese food item. Denny’s “Soy-Marinated Tuna Rice Bowl” is made using bigeye tuna which are quickly processed the moment they are caught and kept perfectly fresh. The fresh bigeye tuna sashimi is marbled with fat, and the slices are then marinated in a flavorful sauce made with soy sauce and bonito stock. The tuna is firmed up and its umami flavors condensed thanks to the margination. It also pairs perfectly with rice.

The Japan Original Dish “Rice Omelet” is a Super Popular Denny’s Menu Item

Denny’s offers customers a vast menu with both Japanese and western-style options, but their “Rice Omelet Topped with Scrambled Eggs and Cheese” is always in their top 10 most popular items. Rice omelets are a Japan-originated dish where seasoned fried rice is served wrapped inside an omelet. At Denny’s, rice omelets feature a tomato pilaf covered with gooey egg, then topped with a special demiglace sauce with a deep, rich flavor. The cheese melts inside of the omelet, making it even more irresistible. The combination of demiglace sauce, tomato pilaf, and eggs is exquisite, a dish you’ll always want to come back to.

Various Japanese Breakfast Sets

In the morning, customers can enjoy Japanese-style breakfast dishes, like salt-grilled mackerel, pork miso soup, and grilled salmon. The salmon in the “Grilled Salmon Breakfast” are all grilled to order, so the tantalizing aroma of the fish is strong and the meat is soft, tender, and perfectly salted. These sets are served with white rice, miso soup, and a side dish.
※Available side dishes are tofu salad with sesame dressing, soft-boiled egg, and natto (fermented soybeans).
