Zenmaru, Otemachi (膳丸)

For the inaugural lunch of our Otemachi encroachment, we were shepherded into the basement of the oddly-named 'First Square' building and given a choice of two teishoku places (since I had ventured that I wanted to eat teishoku, being in the center of Japanese business and all that). Maruzen looked better, and turned out to be pretty good.

Your choice of 7 teishoku, I think (actually 膳 on the menu; funny that!), with two weekly specials, all Y1000. Standard stuff like fish miso (sawara), menchi katsu, karaaaaaage. The karaage looked really good in the sample plate outside, and they turned out well for me. The funny thing here is that in addition to your main, rice and soup, every set comes with 5 sides! There was a little piece of tofu, a wakame in vinegar, a moyashi, a kinpira, and I can't remember the 5th. The seaweed stood out for me since I wasn't expecting it to be vinegared, and I liked it. I predict that I'll be back to this place.

Maru-maru...maru-maru...

This is two days in a row, but I don't think I can keep having lunch at places with 善 in the name...
