Instead of the usual hotel hopping that I've always liked to do, I only stayed in one hotel in Tokyo. Comfort Hotel Tokyo Higashi Nihonbashi (3*) was my choice as it offers value-for-money rooms, not to mention its perfect location which is just a minute walk from Bakurocho station.
Assorted Stuff #1
Individually-wrapped salmon and pickled plum onigiri (Japanese rice balls) were available, together with inari sushi which beancurd wrapping was a bit too sweet for my liking. The macaroni with cod roe sauce was pretty creamy, but not bursting with flavours. While the vegetables for the salad were so-so in terms of freshness, the apples and grapes were fresh and juicy.
Assorted Stuff #2
I purposely took a picture of the yolk which had that beautiful colour of sunset. Velvety on the inside, yet still a bit firm on the outside, the egg was tasty without being too salty.
Scrambled Eggs & Cereal
On the day when the ajitsuke tamago wasn't available, creamy scrambled eggs were offered instead. I was hoping that they'd be cooked with the dreamily creamy Hokkaido milk, but they weren't. Still, they were good enough for a second breakfast after one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in years at Daiwa Zushi. To complement it, I also took a bowl of cereals.
Miso Soup & Minestrone
The miso (Japanese fermented rice, barley and/or soybean) soup was quite hearty with a generous serving of konbu (lit. kelp). Unfortunately, the minestrone was kinda diluted.
Coffee & Milk
The coffee was really strong. On the other hand, the milk, which was also used for the cereal, was pretty thin.

The layout of tables and chairs makes the dining area look like a school canteen. The Pika's advice: The hotel provides complimentary coffee and tea at the dining area from 3.00pm to 12 midnight daily.
