My ode to shima in Tokyo.  Don't go without a reservation at end of lunch or dinner service. Repeat don't just stroll in to shima and ask can I get a sandwich. Sit down and eat a whole meal (spend a ton of money and be a good customer). Make reservation at end of lunch or dinner service. Like 2pm or 9pm.  For those that don't know. This is not a steak sandwich spot...it specializes in o'shima-san's family beef. Get the full experience and ask for a reservation after 9pm so you are last table. Increases odds of getting a steak bento. Shima doesn't like to make sandwiches during service. If he does make it which is no guarantee, he might make it after you finish dinner and you are last group in restaurant. Don't ask for it any other time.  Sometimes they do make a steak sandwich with beef scraps. Order salad and definitely get the crab. And ask for a duo cut of whatever he has available. Make sure to order a extra steak so he can make the bento box (this is not a cheap meal by any means. But shima is probably one of the best values in Tokyo!) Pro tip: make steak dinner reservation on night before trip back to America. Eat sandwich on airplane. Try not to eat bento for at least 8 hours. make reservation after 9pm.  Enjoy. #tbt #hungryboyz #foodporn #oshimarules
