Jun Matsumoto Enjoys 840Yen Meal

Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun is a classic diva example that you can eat anywhere simply because you can…

As reported,

A certain Chinese restaurant in Shibuya called “S” is rumoured to be MatsuJun’s favorite place for lunch. The said restaurant has 4-6 tables that could only accommodate 20 people inside. It’s just minutes of walk from Omotesando Hills in Tokyo; however, despite its prime location, the area is lined with fashionable cafes so people usually ignore this restaurant.

S restaurant interior isn’t exactly stylish either, so it was sort of surprising that Matsumoto would prefer such place. A weird feeling hovers in the atmosphere when Matsumoto would drop by for a meal.

Though it’s not impossible, it is really surprising that he would eat in such place since he is Jun Matsumoto of Arashi.

Matsumoto would usually sit on the counter and eat his rice meal alone. He sometimes talk to sales clerk and has been heard saying that he has work after.

A certain entertainment professional said that is only reasonable for Matsumoto to eat in between a busy day at work. 

While Matsumoto is often seen in upscale restaurants, where he or his friends, would usually reserve a private room to avoid causing a stir with other people. Matsumoto is also known to eat anything, fine-dining or not.

Not the actual meal but quite similar

A reporter from Women’s Weekly decided to visit the said restaurant and try Matsumoto’s favorite dish. According to the store clerk, Matsumoto would always order- Steamed Soy Chicken with Leeks. The reporter was satisfied with the meal and describe it as “a hefty serving of chicken, with steam wafting from your plate, plus a heaping of Kogashi leek”. All of those for 840 Yen.

Lastly, Matsumoto is not only seen in daytime but during night time as well.

I wonder how can this even make an article.
Only show-off bastards eat at fancy places everytime. Small and old store usually have better food anyway.

My sentiment exactly. Just because he is rich and famous doesn't stop him being human and liking tasty food. He isn't an gold coated robot to be put on a pedestal. I actually respect him more for this. Good for him, he can do whatever he wants!! How does eating 840 yens worth of food make him a diva?! Sorry but I am at a complete loss :/

This is...pointless...but I enjoyed it so I'm not complaining xD

Ha. Reminds me of that picture of Tony Leung eating in a dingy little restaurant.

Anyway, he's human. Like us. Or did we expect his taste buds to differ remarkably from us poor sods?

840 yen? Nothing wrong with that.
sugiex 4th-Nov-2012 02:40 am (UTC)
Looks like chicken rice :O

indeed 840yen is a normal price to eat out in japan.

but i thought Johnny's are regulars for gyudon restaurants too, considering their working hours? gyudon restaurants go even cheaper than the mentioned chinese restaurant.

i don't see anything wrong with this. XD just because he comes off as fancy, doesn't mean that he should always eat fancy food. one gotta learn how to save and watch what they are spending to man. besides....usually, there's better food that is comforting at places like these.

must be nice for this S restaurant for getting an instant, albeit indirect promotion. lol
but really, the food must be good then if it passes MJ's taste.
a_cheshire_grin 4th-Nov-2012 09:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, so what?
Only because the food is cheap does not mean it's bad or not "worthy" to be eaten by idols! -.-''

I know right. Matsujun is a human being...just like us ._.
litofroggy 5th-Nov-2012 12:06 am (UTC)
Well~ why wouldn't jun eat there? It's inexpensive, fast, and a big portion.

Better than going to a known place and have fangirls craze all over him when he just wants a meal...

Hey food's food, and as long as it's good, it doesn't matter whether it's in a trendy place or a cheap place. It's kinda cool that MatsuJun recognizes that
ms_pretense 5th-Nov-2012 06:31 am (UTC)
one of the reasons why I love this man..
article or not, its nice to know about this habit of Juns..
arashi_sugoi 5th-Nov-2012 04:20 pm (UTC)
Hmm, I honestly don't find this surprising. I have always thought of Jun as a humble person who would eat at fancy places when required, but would stick to his favorite smaller restaurants otherwise :)

wow, I'm hungry
