Sure you can, it just takes a bit more work.

Please do tell!

The only reasonably priced food I've come across is pure starch, which only makes you hungrier. Or there's the nasty "family cafe" food, but I'd take McDonald's over that

If you have other tips of where to get a meal high in protein and fat for under JPY 1000, please let me know!

What kind of places are you guys talking about then? I'll only be in Tokyo for 1 week in a 3 week trip.

When I was in Kyoto last year, I ate a lot of Loco Moco

fuck, one time had a craving at 3 am, drove down and brought back like $20 worth of food just for me. why dont they press the damn fresh button anymore... makes me suspicious when they say, oh the nuggets are fresh, came out 2 mins ago. If i came down at 3 am i think i can wait the 4 or so mins it takes to make fresh meat + nuggets

If you go to a convenience store or supermarket in the evening, you can usually score the bento boxes at a significant discount, as they just throw it away at the end of the day.

Its an increasingly growing trend with McDonald's that their service is really slow compared to other fast food places. Not just at one location either, and has been going on for several years

I find Mcd vanilla cones flavour better tasting than DQ's

but DQ's has the better, smoother texture but twice the price

the quality of cheeseburgers have gotten so bad at mcdonalds (or at least, around my area). every time i get a double cheeseburger or a mcdouble, the wrapper and burger is literally soaked and covered in grease... you have to pat it down with napkins just to make it edible. every other burger seems fine though but i pretty much never buy cheesebugers there anymore.
