Sozaiya, Otemachi

This will be a boring post - for some of us.

If I'm not careful, I'll finish going to all the restaurants in the basement of the neighboring Shin Otemachi building. They're somewhat lackluster, but that's Otemachi for you. I hope you've gotten that theme as it recurred over the past 8 months and over 150 dining establishments.

Today's lunch had two excellent features. First, I was able to go out with my good friend Kath, of Kath and Kim. There's nothing like a noice bit of culcha to make the lunch hour fly by. Second, getting through lunch left me one hour closer to departure for The Best Restaurant In The World (TM).

Sozaiya's food was not an element in the preceding list. Kath had a teppanyaki teishoku that was sliced beef served on cabbage in a sizzling skillet. I had the mixed teishoku, which had a medium-sized sukiyaki don and a bigger bowl of reimen, the clear Korean-style noodles, topped with kimchi and an onsen tamago. The noodles were curiously firm, more so than I'm used to, and not in a way that I liked.

Fortunately, none of that matters now!
