Delicate Japanese yam restaurant in Asakusa

In Asakusa(浅草), near the Sumida River(隅田川), there is a Japanese yam specialty restaurant called "Asakusa Mugitoro(浅草むぎとろ)", which has been doing business there for more than 80 years. It takes only 5 minutes walk from the Kaminari Gate(雷門) of Senso-ji Temple(浅草寺). Both their restaurant and banquet rooms are always occupied by many customers. I fully understand the popularity because of the delicious and reasonable dishes. Moreover, eating dishes using yam potato are very healthy!  
Exterior of "Asakusa Mugitoro"
Rolled egg, boiled sweet beans and beer 
Croquettes using yam 
Boiled pork with vegetables
Fried yam rolled by dried laver seaweed 
Japanese sake
Steamed yam ball with fish bouillon 
Green tea soba noodle with ground yam 
Grilled salmon in West Kyoto style   
rice, miso soup and ground yam 
Rice crackers 
If you order a course, from JPY4,000 to 10,000 is necessary, but standard set meal comprising a main dish, side dish, rice, miso soup, ground yam and dessert costs reasonably around JPY2,500 even at night. Each a la carte menu is approx. JPY1,000. The taste is definitely yummy! We can enjoy orthodox and delicate taste. Low-sodium. We could be much satisfied with all dishes. Service is also good. My rating is 4 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
