Rui, Otemachi

My friends, the Sankei Building still has a few tricks left to surprise and delight us even after lo these many months of unbroken newness in our daily lunch quest.

Well, maybe not 'delight' so much. Surprise...sure, let's give 'em the benefit of the doubt.

Respecting the wishes of Joey, Dee Dee, et al, I had yet to venture down to the basement of the Sankei. Clearly we're talking about B2 here, as B1 includes three places already graced by our presence. B1 has 5 or 6 places that all look OK, including a sushi. Which Zone and I didn't go to.

Rui is decent-looking teishoku, comes with a bunch of dishes. I had a zuke-kaisen-chirashi kinda thing, and it had plenty of egg and cucumber. I think you know where I'm headed. The fish was mainly aji, which was a little fishy. Zone-kun had a grilled chicken don that was called 'kiji-don', a cruel joke since it wasn't anything as luxurious as pheasant. The side dishes and soup were normal but plentiful.

Maybe that should be our motto for Otemachi lunch, come to think of it.

It's normal, but it's plentiful.
